Elementor is a live, front-end page builder that works through WordPress. What this means is that Elementor simplifies the WordPress content management system (CMS) and enables our clients to update more of their website on their own. It provides users with an easy-to-use interface, complete with a drag-and-drop editor and WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor that provides instant visual feedback.
#1 – Simple and Easy
Elementor makes it easy to move any element(s) to a new spot simply by dragging it across the screen. We can create an entire site from just one screen, no longer needing to switch back and forth or waiting for the page to update This minimises coding time and cost, allowing us to spend more time to focus on the consultation and website design aspects of the project.
In terms of making changes to existing web pages, with Elementor’s live editing, every change is instant, so we can see exactly what we are creating as it happens. Best of all, your site rarely experiences any downtime as we edit new pages in Draft Mode, so the rest of your site functions as normal.
#2 – Our Clients have more control of their website
Let’s face it. You have just invested a substantial one-time fee for a website design agency to complete your website. You do not want to go back to them for every single edit and content update because it would either cost you more time or more money.
Singapore Best Web Design (SBWD)wants to strike a good balance between creating a visually stunning website, while ensuring that most functionality can be maintained by the client themselves. Using Elementor, anyone in your office will be able to easily:
- Update contents
- Replace banner or images
- Add new projects and portfolio
- Create blogs and articles.
- Duplicate pages and segments
With Elementor, there is minimal to no coding barrier to perform the tasks above.
#3 – Excellent and Functional Widgets
Content widgets are like building blocks that you drag into the webpage to use its function, and Elementor has a lot of ready for you to use. Want to add an image? Drag an image widget into the space you want it to be. New office location? Drag a Google map widget into your contact page to have a new map!
This ensures less time spent on looking around for third-party plug-ins to do the job on your WordPress website. This means that with Elementor installed, our clients can achieve most of what they want from their website. As their business grows, their website can be easily tweaked to grow with it.
#4 – Mobile Responsive
It is 2021. More people will view your website on mobile than on the desktop, so having a website that is not easy to update in mobile responsive view is going to be useless.
With Elementor you can tweak the design of your website to work perfectly on all devices. When you edit a web page, you can view it in desktop-mode, tablet-mode and mobile-mode to see how your content looks on the different views. In each responsive mode, you can make changes to the page content and layout to fit and work perfectly on that device view. This will ensure that your website will be 100% mobile-friendly, responsive and work perfectly on all devices.
#5 – Fast and Lightweight
The Elementor engine allows us to use extremely lightweight WordPress frameworks that creates a website with significantly lesser lines of backend codes, resulting in a website that loads much faster than websites using other WordPress pre-purchased themes and templates.
Statistics show that website speed greatly affects user experience and lead conversion, so having a website that loads fast is very important and our approach to developing WordPress + Elementor will ensure minimal user browsing drop-off due to speed issues.
