Many of you reading may be slightly familiar with Elementor as a page builder and don’t understand what the benefits really are to upgrade to Elementor Pro, well I wanted to go over the parts that are enhanced by running Elementor Pro today.

Why Choose Elementor Pro? Elementor Pro adds on a diverse array of additional functionality to help you as an affiliate marketer and website builder to assemble and add on functionality beyond what is included in most themes by themselves.

So what makes Elementor Pro so much nicer than just a free plugin? Well there is a load of enhancements within the plugin including what I see as the strongest parts of the plugin below, the global widgets, pro templates, popup creation, blog post layouts, and support.

Features Which Drive Elementor Pro Value

While I will say that Elementor is very good for most uses when you plan to run your site and really customize the overall look and feel then Elementor Pro is a requirement when your theme is a minimalist one similar to Acabado.

If you are looking for anything greater than a passive blog website with your Acabado site you need to look into something like Elementor Pro or maybe DIVI builder who are their primary competitor.

For most Elementor Pro will be the most feature filled and easy to learn as there is a great many tutorials online on YouTube to help you learn each part of it from the company themselves.

Global Elements Feature

The Global Elements are a nice feature specifically available for a user of Elementor Pro which allows you to build a widget, like a table, and then drop it into the post or page and update the content from one place, allowing you to only create a element once.

This also allows you to update this element from a single place and all placements of it within your site will be updated at the same time. This can be a huge benefit if you show the same table across multiple posts but, for example, price changes you would only need to update the Global Element and all instances are instantly changed.

In the end, this ability will save you a lot of time since the shared global widget can be updated without the pains of having to locate the elements manually across your site.

Blog Posts Layout

This one is very helpful when you are building out blog and post based pages like archives and search templates. You want a high quality way to showcase the posts which are returned and this element is only available through the Elementor Pro purchase.

This is the element I used in the recreation of the Acabado homepage over in this post. Without this making, a similar homepage was much more of an issue and once I set up the CSS this widget is a near-perfect match to Acabado.

The above image is an Elementor template that simulates the Acabado homepage which allows you to tweak it and if you want to, add more code and elements onto the homepage should you choose to.

Access to the Pro Templates

While there are a few free templates available to you with the free version of Elementor the Pro version comes with a vast amount that is continually being updated and added.

Within these templates are a large variety of different page types which can give you a base to work from and modify to fit your needs more specifically without you needing to craft them manually.

I built an Elementor landing page example to show you how to build a simple capture email form to grab information from visitors and get them onto your email list. In the internet marketing world, your email list should be a focus and a priority to get you a chance to connect with your visitors again.

Access to Popup Creation

This is a nice and very powerful tool in the Elementor Pro tool suite, let’s face it popups are used on a great many sites and when configured properly with smart conditions they can yield very high-quality results.

This can help you add subscribers through a popup which shows after the user interacts on 3 posts or pages, for example. This means the person it shows to is very interested in the content on your site and far more likely to subscribe versus a popup on every page.

Support From Their Team

Yeah, I know right! Getting support from people who are paid to manage support and tickets to help you when something isn’t working as expected. Elementor Pro has a nice and solid support team and they answer very fast and are exceedingly helpful in working with you to get your site functioning.

Final Thoughts

Hopefully, this has shown you why you would be interested in purchasing Elementor Pro, while I covered the parts I believe to be the most valuable you do get much more from the Elementor Pro plugin.

I think that it can be used to help any affiliate marketer make a solid website that is visually stunning while allowing you to make sites that highly convert visitors and make you an income.

I love technology, I have plenty of technical side experience but never really thought of blogging as a way to earn an income. With everything that has gone on in the last couple years and the instability of the job markets I started to learn how to blog and build affiliate niche sites to add more income channels to give me the chance to break free from the financial chains that bind me and find real freedom!
