Elementor is a WordPress plugin that allows even the non-coder to create an amazing website or just individual web pages. With it, you can control every area of your website design. Elementor is a “drag and drop” website-building platform, and it has been used to create 5% of all the world’s websites!


You have the ability to edit the website and simultaneously see exactly how it looks; no more having to go between the back-end and the front-end and wait for a refresh every time you make a small change. You can build and adjust your website’s pages freely and then see the results in real-time.
