Have you ever wanted to build a WordPress website, but you were never sure where to begin? Considering WordPress isn’t exactly the most straightforward content management system (CMS) around, I think most people can relate. There’s no reason why you should be focusing so much time on trying to get something to work, especially when  your time is best spent doing what really matters — creating quality content.

Over the years as a content creator, I have used a variety of CMS products — but none of them compares to the experience that I’ve recently had with Elementor. Needless to say, I have been pleasantly surprised with what I’ve seen in recent weeks when redesigning Di Franco Media with Elementor from the ground up.

Elementor, in case you are not aware, is the world’s leading page builder for WordPress websites. It transforms the WordPress design environment that you’re familiar with and turns it into something visually more pleasing. Thanks to its innovative drag-and-drop editor and seemingly infinite amount of options, putting together a WordPress website just got so much easier. And the best part? It’s free to use!

Since Elementor is its own plugin, you will have to install it on your WordPress website before getting started. Follow the installation instructions here. The process takes no longer than two minutes, so you’ll be up and running in no time.

Once you have Elementor installed, I recommend checking out the walkthrough video I created below. Elementor is incredibly in-depth and offers a ton of features, so obviously my video is just a preview of the entire experience. If you are a new user, my best suggestion for learning Elementor is to explore the CMS yourself and see what it offers.

If you are in need of a reliable and affordable web host, Di Franco Media proudly recommends HostPapa. They have a variety of hosting plans available, including several WordPress packages.
