As an experienced WordPress user who enjoys going beyond the norm, it’s an understatement to say how excited I was when I first discovered Elementor — a popular drag-and-drop editor that makes building WordPress websites not only easier, but far more flexible. Seriously, it’s that good. If you have not yet given it a try, I highly recommend you do, especially considering it’s free to use.
While the majority of Elementor can be used at no charge, there is a premium route worth exploring. Respectively, it’s called Elementor Pro. But to ask the obvious question… Is Elementor Pro actually worth it?
First of all, let’s talk pricing. If you are looking to use Elementor Pro for one website, then you’re going to be spending $49/year. Do some quick math and that comes out to just over $4/month. That seems pretty affordable, right? Increase your website count to three and it’s an annual fee of $99. And finally, for unlimited websites, you’re looking at $199/year.
If building websites is your thing, then going the pro route is a no-brainer. I currently pay the $49/year fee and I have not regretted my purchase one bit. Being able to use the pro templates has not only greatly expanded the functionality of my work, but it’s nice to know that I am limitless on what I can accomplish. The last thing I want to run into when designing websites is an obstacle that halts my creative workflow.
A quick breakdown of features only available to Elementor Pro customers can be seen below:
- 50+ professional widgets
- 300+ professional page templates
- intuitive theme builder
- WooCommerce support for storefronts
- pop-up builder
- support and updates for 1 year
