There are so many different ways to build a website! You can do all of the coding, just the design part, or a mixture of design and code. New options are coming out all of the time. All of the options can be like a shiny object, diverting your attention as you try to find the best choice for your business.
I recently rebuilt my site using a WYSIWYG plugin for WordPress. I was skeptical that this would make my site slow or not perform in the way it was promised. Fortunately, I have to say, I love it. In addition to my original site built with WordPress and Foundation, I used Elementor to update. As a developer, I am used to having a lot of control. Although the platform isn’t perfect, it made web design fun, while allowing me to maintain command of the site. Are you intrigued?
Read on to find out more about what I like about Elementor.
1. Cost – Elementor offers a free and upgraded version of the software. So, you really get a chance to see if it’s the right fit for you.
2. Control – You can see the changes you make, like in Shopify or Squarespace. You can also take advantage of the robust WordPress platform and the plugin to make coding changes and get the customization you want.
3. Templates – You can use Elementor templates, and you can save pieces or whole pages that you design. So, you can quickly build sites.
4. Responsive – You can live preview and edit for different devices. This is the number one pain in my butt when designing sites, and Elementor makes it really easy.
