Why we use Elementor Page Builder for WordPress

elementor page builder

When we first started creating wordpress sites, we didn’t have a page builder tool at all. I was introduced to WP Bakery about 6 years ago and thought it was heaven sent.  I could design so much faster – I could  create posts so much easier and they looked more professional – this really worked for me. However, no matter what I did, I could not get my site faster. Tried fastest cache plugins..oh, yeah, let me mention as well that I had a ton of plugins to help me with the look and feel of my websites.  So, slow loading, which upset google algorithms, lots of plugins which contributed to slowness and the maintenance and cost of some of those plugins were pretty high. 

I then saw a youtube video talking about Elementor.  Started thinking – maybe it’s time to try something new.  So I then started looking at the other page builder options, Beaver, Divi and some others. Elementor still looked like one of the easiest to learn and run with.  

I like a challenge, so I set out to complete a site migration over the weekend on a live Ecommerce site.  Didn’t even take it down as I was migrating over. I had so much fun doing this, it was easy for me to learn, did what I needed it to do and quickly realized I could get rid of a few plugins I was using along the way because Elementor could handle it for me. I did have to use the plugin that is called ‘shortcode cleaner’. This helped get all the broken shortcodes out of my posts and pages. I did have to go in and clean up and put images again and update the posts that needed to be updated, along with some home page design, but doing the elementor templates was a blessing.  If you’re pondering which page builder to go with, I would definitely encourage you to try Elementor Pro. I have it for this website, along with two others that are e-commerce sites. 

Update: It’s been a few months now that I decided to use Elementor and I can really say that it was the best decision for me and my business. My sites are loading faster and I’m faster in creating content. I highly recommend either to start using this page builder if you don’t have one already OR switching over from an old page builder to Elementor. You won’t be disappointed.
