My Passion for WordPress
Last month I outlined my passion for WordPress. Now, as we embark on 2020, I’d like to talk a little bit about Elementor.
Elementor is a site builder that seamlessly integrates with WordPress and allows me to do what I do without having to perform complex workarounds.
In Today's Marketplace
In today’s online marketplace, you tend to have two options when it comes to website building software: Either you get a program that performs one task really well, or you have a more expansive tool that touches on all aspects of web design but doesn’t do any of them particularly well.
With the former, you wind up needing several different tools that may each be very good, but then you have to get them all to work together.
With the latter, you either build a very standard, unoriginal site, or you have to spend a lot of time figuring out how to work around the boringness to make the sort of spectacular designs my clients are looking for.
Elementor is WordPress-specific
But Elementor provides excellent tools across the web-design spectrum, and all of them are already designed to work with one another. Moreover, Elementor is WordPress-specific, so you don’t have any bugs or hitches that you might get from a web builder that’s trying to be everything for every platform. And just like WordPress, Elementor provides a basic structure for amateurs while also supporting boundary-breaking work by professional designers.
Just take a look at these features. There are established themes if you need them, but also plenty of tools to build your own. There’s a massive menu of social media and other platform integrations. There are all sorts of forms and ecommerce solutions, and all of these tools can be utilized in a custom, responsive layout.
