Five Essential Add-Ons For Elementor

Elementor Pro

At $49 for one site, the pro licence of Elementor offers all the free version does and more. It empowers you with more professional tools that speed up your workflow, and allow you to get more conversions and sales.  I think the free version is great and the ability to extend it’s functionality with further options is a worthwhile investment.

Hello / Astra / Neve Theme

As your pages are being built on a blank canvas, there is no need for an all singing, all dancing theme with lots of front page options and add-ons. Instead go with any one of these 3 free WordPress themes. They are all minimal and fully compatible with Elementor. Importantly, they also score well when running a finished website through GTMetrix, Pingdom or similar.

Header Footer & Blocks

Header Footer & Blocks is one of the best add-ons for Elementor. A separate section is created in your WP-Admin panel and allows you to create sections that are then used on all of your pages – either in the header or footer (as the name suggests). Gone are the days of being stuck with a header set by your theme – the possibilities are endless with this addition.

Envato Elements

From the guys at Envato – the same people that run Themeforest – is this plugin which allows you to import premium, royalty-free photos without leaving WordPress. It also provides access to thousands of hand-crafted, quality, free templates to use within Elementor. All you need to do is browse, import, then customise.

Yoast SEO

Finally, for me – the best plug-in available for WordPress. One that is used on all of my own websites and also here at Clook. I describe it as SEO by numbers – it’s so simple to use but when done so correctly the results speak for themselves. Yoast sees the information entered on Elementor pages and provides you with your SEO score – ensure all of your pages are rated well and it’s the first step in SEO boxed off.

It’s worth noting that Elementor is not resource heavy such as some other builders and works well on our shared & reseller platform.
