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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You can have a simple bar with a call to action without installing plugins that may make your site insecure, instead build on with code snippets.
You can't go wrong starting to learn page builders with Elementor Free, it can help you understand what the builder experience is like!
