While this review required, for some reason, that I identify for which company I use Elementor, I use Elementor for a hobby website, not a business website. I have the (possibly weird) hobby of learning more about macroeconomics, banking, finance, and supply chains, and I wanted somewhere to write up what I was learning.
  • It has a great page builder
  • It has a great template system
  • I also love its ability to set global parameters, such as font, font color, etc
  • One thing, Elementor currently lacks sales funnel functionality built into the theme
I have recommended Elementor already. I also like that Elementor provides a stripped-down WordPress theme (Hello) which is all you need to create an Elementor website. Elementor is well suited for business websites where you don't need sales to funnel functionality built into the theme. This is one thing Elementor currently lacks.

We use Elementor as our primary website page-building tool. It serves us on multiple brand websites across our entire organization to reduce our time producing web pages and even allows non-code-savvy team members to update and manage pages. It is easier to understand and work with than Gutenberg has been for our team.
  • Front-end Page Building
  • Landing Page Development
  • Easy Webpage Content Management
  • More Enterprise Features would be nice
  • More integration with 3rd party form plugins like Gravity Forms
  • Sometimes it gets confusing working with template features like headers. Editing in one place may accidentally affect the entire site and it is not always clear.
I suggest Elementor to anyone looking to build a website especially if they are already locked into using WordPress. Elementor is the absolute best companion for easy page building for all levels of WordPress users. Unless the person I'm referring this to has a large development team that is very well versed in WordPress I strongly advise them to use Elementor.

Elementor is my go-to software whenever I need a new website or landing page because they have a ton of awesome premade templates to choose from and they're easily editable from the drag and drop interface which makes the process of launching a new website or landing page for a marketing campaign way easier.
  • Drag and drop builder
  • Rich templates library
  • Easy to deploy and edit pages
  • the more templates they can add the better, if they can add more quality templates it's going to be even better for us
I would recommend Elementor to every beginner looking for a code-free solution to launch a website or build a landing page in any industry because it's simply the best website builder in WordPress, the free plan is enough to get started so there's literally no reason to try it, I started with the free plan then I bought a pro license to get even more awesome templates.

Elementor is the WordPress plugin we use for front-end design of landing pages, websites and ecommerce developed in WordPress. We like using this because it has many features that make our lives easier such as mobile layouts with responsive codes so they look great no matter what device you're viewing them on or column layouts which allows us more creative freedom when designing a webpage layout . It also offers drag n drop interfaces making things go faster than ever before! As well, this program supports woocommerce along side form plugins; allowing us even greater flexibility while taking advantage from being able to customize nearly anything imaginable within our website designs. This plugin is used by the UX/UI department.
  • Free option (freemium plugin)
  • Can be installed on client sites
  • Large community in social media
  • Easy to use interface with live previews
  • No coding knowledge required
  • Completely customizable
  • slow to load
  • consumes too much memory on server
  • annoying messages in WordPress dashboard
Elementor is a fantastic tool for those who need their site up and running quickly, but also have faster hosting than what's offered on shared servers. With Elementor, you can design your website and landing pages without ever worrying about code. Re-use content across multiple pages to save time and connect with professional designers and developers through the easy sharing of projects.Elementor is less appropriate if you are on a shared server and need faster load times. While the UI may seem sleek, it can cause performance issues as Elementors code will be executed multiple times per page request which could affect how quickly your site loads for visitors.

Elementor is being used specifically by the individual that is in charge of updating and setting up the website. It had allowed our organization to design and set up a website without having to bring in a third party.
  • Easy drop and drag design
  • Good pricing
  • Lots of pre-made templates
  • The ability to add an Instagram feed into a page without having to install a plugin
  • Better support
  • More flexibility within built-in features, such as calendar, blog posts, etc.
It is great for an organization that is small, needs a simple website, or doesn't have the time/money to set up a website. I don't think I would recommend it for a large organization that needs a lot of details on its website.

I always used the Jupiter X theme from Artbees for designing websites because they had a very easy-to-use and fully customizable web page builder called WPBakery. I was disappointed when I saw they stopped supporting WPBakery and made the switch to Elementor. [In my experience] Elementor is not good. I kept using it more and more hoping that I would get used to it, but it is so incredibly flawed and filled with bugs that it quite literally makes changes to your website on its own. That shouldn't be possible, but it makes very strange and unappealing changes regularly while using it. At first, it looks very user-friendly. When you begin building your website the Elementor setup does look nice and is easy to use. However, when you get into the more detailed parts of your site Elementor just falls apart. For example, for changing font size and other typography options in a text box, you have two separate areas where Elementor gives you buttons to change the options and you have two additional places where you can change the exact same settings using HTML/CSS. That is four separate places to do the exact same thing and changing any one of those settings will not affect the other three. Elementor almost always starts with two of those settings filled in with different default values. Then it seems to randomly choose between the four options for which settings it will use on your site. It's just a mess to get all the elements of your website in order.
  • [I believe] it does nothing well.
  • Filled with bugs.
  • Reduce the number of places to adjust the same settings.
[I feel] with any website being developed Elementor should not be used. I will not recommend Elementor to anyone. I almost never write reviews on products. When I do it's generally because I think the product should get a higher review. However, my experience with this product over the last two years has been so bad that I had to share this somewhere for potential customers to see it.

I purchased Elementor at the beginning of this year to design a new website for my business. I have experience with computers, coding, and Wordpress so I thought this would be a good fit. I was excited to see that it's more block code and that many designers use Elementor to create websites for their clients.
  • Block code is very easy to work with.
  • They don't have support, per se, but they have a whole big group of users on Facebook who are great at helping each other out.
  • They have some templates you can use to just get going if you're in a particular industry that would probably work well with a template!
  • The price is really not bad for how much you get.
  • Elementor is a bit slow compared to other block coding that's out there now for Wordpress websites.
  • It also does not work well with WP Rocket and WP Rocket will break your site.
  • There's a lot of searching through their website when you do miss something and can't figure out how to get it to work.
I would recommend this for the ease of use and price. It is a good value for any website developer or designer to be able to create multiple websites a year with super simple coding. If you've got a way to speed up your website without using WP Rocket, then it's even better! I think this software is specifically made for someone with a coding background and would recommend that you have a background with Wordpress to make using this software even easier.

Would definitely recommend to people who want to build websites for themselves but are not knowledgeable about web development.
  • It is not just a page editing tool but a full-fledged theme builder.
  • It doesn't require much knowledge about web design since you can build anything with simple drag and drop features.
  • As in any constructor, the main problem is the creation of unnecessary layout code and styles.
  • As a result of the redundant code, a second problem appears - the page can take a long time to load.
We build simple web pages for companies. The existence of templates has really made our job easy and we now build these pages a lot faster.

I utilized Elementor for about three years as our go-to landing page builder for Wordpress. It has a great UI and is very easy to master, however, it also comes with a number of performance issues, which is why we made a decision to switch from it. Overall, it is a good software, but could be better if the development team could ever address performance issues
  • Easy creations of Landing Pages
  • Great Popup Form Builder
  • It's much slower than many of the new players like Webflow, Oxygen or many others
  • Introduction of one-time pricing could make it worth it
It could be a good tool for a company which doesn't have a big development team, or just for any marketing department where less tech-savy people can easily create beautiful landing pages. It has some really good additions, like Popup Builder which helps to increase conversions on the websites.

I used the Elementor built into the WordPress template, which we bought on Envato market, when building a company website. This is a solution for block-based website creation without coding. I used this in my department, but marketers then used the site and added new blocks to the pages through the builder.
  • No code solution to build website
  • Extremely fast page builder
  • Easy to use blocks builder
  • Need more settings for blocks
  • Need more built-in blocks templates
  • Need more intgrations with another services
If you need to quickly create a simple website or landing page, and at the same time you do not want to crawl into the code and study a ton of documentation, the Elementor will help you. It is intuitive and has everything you need in its basic functionality.
If you want something sophisticated and beautiful, based on a unique design, it is best not to use an Elementor.

Elementor is the key tool used to manage the content on our non-profit's website that is powered by WordPress. For a small non-profit, this is the perfect tool to get a beautiful and professional looking website designed with little to no experience with web design or programming. Elementor is very flexible with it's great list of widgets, which makes it extremely easy to customize the website the way you want it.
  • Lots of available widgets which are easy to use
  • Drag and drop for easy design
  • Lots of online support and tutorials to help learn how to use Elementor.
  • WordPress is quickly adopting some of the core features of Elementor.
  • It's been a while since new widgets have been released.
  • Doesn't always work with every WordPress theme available.
Elementor makes website design extremely easy, so the it is certainly suited for those who are not developers. It is a WordPress plugin, so you will need to be running a WordPress site. You don't have to know PHP or CSS, and that makes it easy to get up and running with a great looking website for cheap.

Elementor doesn't support some of the more complicated web features that you see on websites these days, but those are usually professionally designed and coded. Elementor is not going to be a great fit for those who have the skills and expertise to edit WordPress' code directly.

I resorted to Elementor when faced with a tricky Wordpress requirement. Ever since I stumble upon something not easy, I try it in Elementor.
  • Page design
  • Visual effects
  • Data presentation
  • There is not a clear line between Free and Pro. Usually what I want is on Pro, but I always try to do it on the free version first.
  • Page save is not obvious and sometimes is a bit slow
  • Would like to see a better integration between themes and layouts.
I think that a web designer/developer can always find a use for Elementor. As a shortcut for the final product, and one that the final client can play a bit with without crashing the full site. Having a licence for several sites, the price is low so it is a good investment to consider.

Elementor (the paid Pro version) is being used to create many of our site's pages. It is used by the web devs, graphic designer, and also by our content marketing team.
It allows us to easily create functional and aesthetically pleasing pages with a wide range of design elements available.
  • Easy to implement different sections of a page such as images, text blocks, forms etc.
  • There is a range of example pages available for you to change to suit your brand or to provide some inspiration
  • It is easy to add custom CSS (or similar)
  • You only get good support if you're using the pro version - I have used Elementor across two different sites and found support to be rude when only the free version is in use.
  • Some of their guides on their website seemed out dated as the steps differed slightly when following a guide
Despite not being 100% happy with their support, I still highly recommend Elementor as a product because it has so many options for site building. There are also enough guides online by other users to help you through most, if not all, problems you may run into.
It is very useful if you like the drag and drop style of website building but also want the freedom to use custom CSS etc
From experience with two sites using Elementor, they only care when you have the paid version

We needed to build a new website quickly. We needed it to work well, be built easily, and have the capability to be updated and managed by people who aren't "web developers. We were able to create a site that was largely pre-built, but were also able to make it feel like a custom site.
  • Intuitive WYSIWYG editor.
  • Fast loading for end-user.
  • Flexible templates and sections to use.
  • Adding additional pages and maintaining consistency could be easier.
  • Newer user may have trouble knowing how to set proper "slugs".
  • Section templates, once changed, don't update across pages.
Elementor is perfect for the person who has some eye for design and site usability. Other resources like Squarespace or Wix *could* help get a site up more quickly, but, in my opinion, would lack the control you gain with Elementor. If you're not "tech-savvy," I would avoid Elementor, but if you can find your way around new systems and have a very basic knowledge of html/css, Elementor is a powerhouse tool.

We are using Elementor builder to build our own and our clients' websites. We have purchased Elementor Pro which has a lot more functionality attached to it.
  • Variety of high-customizable widgets.
  • Amazing template library.
  • A lot of integrations with third-party themes and plugins.
  • Very easy to use.
  • Load time can be improved.
  • More options on SEO attributes.
Elementor builder can be used for very small to very large websites. It can handle very complex designs, animations, and interactions. So, the size and complexity of the site do not matter at all.

We design websites for our clients and use Elementor to achieve custom design without the overhead of intense programming or cumbersome tech. We love The flexibility and and features for the price is wonderful and a core part of our process right now. A major benefit is the integrations and how it plays well with other elements in WordPress. There are a lot of options when it comes to building websites online, and as the adoption rate continues to increase, Elementor allows designers to become major players in the webspace.
Another valuable aspect is the large community of web developers who also use Elementor. When you run into trouble, you can reach out and get help for your specific use case. I have been thoroughly impressed with the support and video tutorials that are available on mine, and the powerful plug-ins that integrate with Elementor make for a complete package.
  • Visual builder interface
  • Fast and easy to use
  • Powerful integrations and compatibility
  • Pro level design templates
  • More widgets for Elementor pro users
  • Further refine page load and reduce bloat
  • Define best use case settings for top themes.
If you need to have agile web design and easy editing, then Elementor is the way to go. You run into trouble when you need super custom solutions, or when you combine it with certain plug-ins that don’t play well. This is on a case-by-case basis, and can often be solved by high-level programmers.

As a full-service Digital Marketing Agency, we use Elementor for as many clients as we can for a few reasons. Currently that would be about 80% of our website clients. We use Elementor primarily because once we "turn over the keys" to the client, it's fantastically easy to manage.
  • Full website builder with unique widgets
  • Easy starter templates that work well for small clients
  • Support is fantastic! Very important.
  • If you'd asked me a year ago where Elementor could improve, this list would be easy, now, not so much. The product develops at a phenomenal rate with new features consistently being rolled out. Support has improved DRAMATICALLY and is really world class at this point.
We think that Elementor is suited for just about anyone that wants an effective Wordpress website. From starter templates that are customizable to one off designed sites, Elementor can get it done. Keep in mind that it's just a tool, and only as good as those wielding it. We have found that clients that need or want to move from WIX or similar sites are at a price point where Elementor allows us to meet their budget. For very large sites, with special needs, Elementor may only be one of the tools we use. One example is a real estate site that required some very specialized plugins and pages. Even though the framework was done in Elementor, a lot of other tools were used.

Elementor is our Web Departments only builder. Even though Elementor has not been around as long as many of the other web builders out there, they have done a fantastic job. Especially over the last couple of years. They are continually upgrading features and just making it better. Additionally, there are now so many 3rd party products that are made to work with Elementor. There is little that you can not do. We have found it to be light and fast. The interface is the best out there, in our opinion. The other nice thing about Elementor is there are a lot of good themes that are made to use Elementor as the builder.
  • The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate. Each of the blocks is laid out in a very standard way. This makes learning Elementor pretty quick. There are a lot of advanced features that take longer to become familiar with, but for solid basic design, it is easy to learn.
  • Elementor is quite capable of building nicely designed fast sites. It also has excellent Mobile capabilities allowing a designer to make sure the look on Tablet and Phone are as well designed as the desktop version.
  • Elementor works well with virtually every Theme out there. However, to go a step further, there are quite a few Themes that are built specifically to work with Elementor.
  • This is not something that Elementor does, but I need to mention that there are several Block sets out there that are made for Elementor and expand the design capabilities.
  • Occasionally while building in Elementor, parts of the builder will either freeze or become glitchy. This is not very common, but it does occur from time to time.
  • One area that Elementor could use some work is in their support department. I have emailed support in the past and have not even received a reply. We use Astra Pro for our theme, and their support has gone in and fixed or explained issues that were directly related to Elementor. Fortunately, we have not needed support much since the product is so well built.
I think Elementor would be appropriate for anyone that uses WordPress as their preferred CMS. The free version is very capable, especially if paired with a feature-rich theme. This would allow the use of Elementor on a hobby site or beginning blog. Elementor Pro is at a price point that allows even freelancers to be able to use it, and it is certainly robust enough for a larger agency. It is capable of very complex design.

Elementor is being used to update the content on our websites that use WordPress. It's used only by the content managers internally and any colleagues with additional responsibilities regarding the sites. We decided to go with Elementor as it simplified the basic building and design of site pages, meaning team members could easily adapt its functions with little training or prior experience.
  • Many predefined content elements are available to choose from, to help build your pages. These range from basic text boxes, to dividers, images, videos, maps, share buttons and more. This vast range of content options alone makes it worth investigating.
  • The building process itself if made simple- elements are added to your page via drag and drop. Its faster and less complex than other tools.
  • While its basic features can be an advantage, they also prove to be a disadvantage for anyone looking to create more intricate and sophisticatedly designed pages.
  • Improved, seamless integrations with other tools would be helpful, so other tools could be added or embedded into the pages being built. At the moment, using other add-ons tends to result in several issues that the page viewers experience.
Elementor is great for teams with little or no website design and implementation experience, as it allows them to take responsibility for creating and updating sites simply, with a limited budget. It's not so great for businesses with more sophisticated needs who are more invested in responding to customer online needs and aim to tailor-make their pages to unique specifications.

Elementor is being used in conjunction with WordPress to build websites for our clients, whether they are required to be dynamic, blogs, eCommerce or a combination, Elementor is our go-to page-builder for the job. It is used within the Web Design Department of our company, however, our graphic designers have been starting to utilize it too for a faster process from mockup to showcase for the client.
  • Creating beautiful websites quickly and easily.
  • Easy to use and no prior knowledge of coding is required.
  • Search within their icon library could be improved to allow for relative terms to pull the required icon - not just the exact icon name.
  • Identifying which element has margin applied to it can be difficult (when an element is within a column, within a section, etc.) when items are not aligned.
Elementor is well suited if you are a designer looking to build a website for yourself and would like to use a self-hosted option like Wordpress, or if you would like to start branching out into web design. It is great to use as a builder and is extensive enough to allow for beautiful designs while still being easy enough to use that you can pass it on to a client to take over and manage content.

Elementor is used as the page builder (WordPress plugin) to create and manage most of the pages on our company website. The IT department (consisting of me) uses it for our home page, product information pages, about page, contact page, as well as to manage site-wide header and footer templates.
  • It's making it easy to create a visually pleasing website.
  • It's making it east to create or upload templates to be used and re-used.
  • Making sure that your website is mobile and tablet friendly is hard if your site is highly custom.
  • The free tier is really stacked with functionality, but I needed more for implementing tables.
Elementor is an awesome page builder for creating standard looking sites to highly customized masterpieces. When you are creating a highly custom site, it does, however, become increasingly hard to cater to mobile and tablet users while keeping the site aesthetically pleasing and one hundred percent functional. I would say it's perfect for a striking but simple (less is more) site.

I create websites for businesses and have used Elementor as a great way to build websites and save on time, design and the whole process of site building.
  • Drag and Drop helps save time.
  • Easy to make updates to.
  • There isn't much to dislike about elementor. Sometimes it can be difficult to figure something out but other than that I don't have any complaints.
It's great for all kinds of web designers from those who code to those who don't. Really the best site builder I've used.
