My experience as an Elementor Freelancer
Freelancing with Elementor pro is a blessing in disguise. It just makes building and managing clients’ sites so easy. I can build a WordPress website for a client without having to use custom code, and much quicker than a developer could and take advantage of using all of these amazing Elementor plug-in extensions like Crocoblock or Elementor Pro version.
Freelancing with Elementor Pro vs Elementor Free version
The Elementor expert plan is a good choice for freelancers getting started selling web design services using Elementor. The sky is the limit when it comes to building sites using Elementor. With Pro, you get more features like the ability to add custom headers and footers and display them globally through the site. You also get to use Global templates and sections, so you can edit them once and they update across your entire website wherever you have them displayed.
How does Elementor Pro compare to other page builders?
After trying other page builders like WP bakery and Avada theme, I noticed that there wasn’t really much control over the design. The UI was not anything special as most of the features controls were edited on the backend and not very much of a visual design tool. I find Elementor Pro to be similar to adobe photoshop or XD in terms of web design as it has that feel when I am building sites on the WordPress platform.
Elementor expert Fiverr sellers also do well in terms of attracting new clients, however, you need to make sure you vet these Elementor experts well, to ensure there is no language barrier or time zone constraints. Upwork is another great place to find Elementor freelancers offering web design services.
When it comes to choosing between Elementor or Divi Builder for web design freelancers, there are some pros and cons for both. With Elementor, you have a powerful page builder that is easy to use and allows designers to create professional-looking websites without any coding knowledge.
Additionally, Elementor’s drag-and-drop interface makes customizing pages much easier than with Divi Builder. On the other hand, Divi Builder offers more advanced features that give users greater control over their website design. Though its learning curve may be steeper than Elementor’s, experienced web developers can benefit from Divi’s additional tools and animations.
When it comes to website design and development, two of the most popular page builders are WP Bakery and Elementor. Both offer powerful features that can help freelancers create stunning websites quickly and efficiently. But which is better for your project?
WP Bakery is a powerful page builder designed to make website building easier and more efficient. It was created to provide users with an intuitive, easy-to-use platform for creating custom websites quickly and without the need for coding or design skills. WP Bakery features a number of plugins and themes that can be used to build unique pages with drag-and-drop ease. WP Bakery also includes a library of pre-designed elements such as buttons, images, text boxes, form fields, maps, and more.
WP Bakery’s user interface is extremely friendly, providing users with an accessible way to create web pages quickly and easily. The WP Bakery’s drag-and-drop functionality allows users to add content blocks to any page and customize them with a few clicks. WP Bakery also includes an advanced CSS editor that allows users to edit the look and feel of their pages with ease. WP Bakery has full-width layouts, color schemes, font libraries, custom widgets, and more for building beautiful and functional websites.
What my clients think about Elementor
My clients love Elementor for a few different reasons, the first is the easy user interface. I have been hired by clients that use other page builders like Beaver Builder, DIVI, and Wp Bakery. When we switch to Elementor and I have them play around with it, they are amazed at how easy it is to edit content and adjust design elements.
I think it is very important to stick to a one-page builder once you learn it well so you can become a master of that plugin. I notice clients reach out to me based on my ability to build great sites specifically with Elementor Pro since that is what I decided to master. You can build WordPress websites with many different plugins which I have used. I have noticed that nothing comes close to Elementor and its amazing Interface and how much design control you have on the front end.
You don’t need to jump through hoops to adjust header and footer styles, every widget is laid out neatly on the left panel and its simple drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to load elements on a page without hopping around screens. It’s very easy to style these elements as well with so much control it’s honestly astonishing.
Client work with Elementor Pro
As an Elementor Freelancer and WordPress freelancer, I am often asked to take on client work. While I enjoy working with WordPress, it can be challenging to keep up with the rapidly changing landscape of the platform. In order to provide the best possible service to my clients, I keep up with the latest developments in WordPress and make sure to test new features before recommending them. This way, I can be confident that the work I deliver will meet my client’s needs and exceed their expectations.
Attention to detail is very important when dealing with clients. Speed is another factor that I find important so you can impress your clients with an amazing job that took you 4 hours whereas it would have taken days with custom code. It’s amazing how fast you can produce client work with Elementor Pro.
When clients request more advanced functionality
As an Elementor freelancer, sometimes clients need certain functionality and specific layouts that Elementor Pro may lack. That is why I use the Crocoblock Subscription. This suite of plugins extends the functionality of Elementor Pro and gives you a huge jump in usability and website functionality. It adds all the good stuff clients would need like WooCommerce widgets and filters, Advanced custom post types with listing grids, custom meta boxes, and taxonomies for anything you can think of. You can add AJAX search options and booking forms. The list goes on, check out Crocoblock for yourself!
The Crocoblock subscription has been a lifesaver. I have been able to create amazing websites using the plugin.
