Why Choose a Website Design Agency That Works With Elementor?

The KIJO team works at the forefront of web design. We design, develop and manage bespoke websites for businesses across the UK. To create unique platforms, imagined with your audience in mind and tailored to your brand, we use WordPress and Elementor. Specifically, Elementor Pro

We proudly work with complete transparency with our clients, so this article is here to explain why we choose to work with Elementor.  Below, we’ll discuss what Elementor is, how we use it at KIJO and why your website should be built with it.

What is Elementor?

Elementor is a live, front-end page builder that works through WordPress. It provides designers with the tools to build fully customisable web pages from scratch. Elementor does this all with an easy-to-use interface, complete with a drag-and-drop editor and instant visual feedback.

In WordPress, page builders like Elementor are web design plugins. Plugins are extra programmes to install on top of the core WordPress code to give more scope for professional website design. They help developers to build SEO-friendly pages and can be utilised over entire sites.

While other page builders offer customisable templates, Elementor enables users to easily create a house style. Elementor users can include their existing marketing material to create a recognisable look throughout their website design which is vital for brand continuity. It also allows for users to employ standardisation across fonts, colours and links as well as ensuring that users’ blog posts and website landing pages are formatted in identical styles.

Why Work With a Web Design Agency?

A web design agency is a valuable business partner. Working in collaboration with a dedicated web design team results in a website rich in features and with advanced functionality. Skilled website designers can push your perceived boundaries; suggest innovative solutions you may not have thought of. They will also save you valuable time by promptly creating technical features. Our tried and tested development systems make full use of our team’s expertise whilst giving us the flexibility to shape our methods and designs to your brand.

At KIJO we create custom websites using WordPress and the Elementor plugin. Today, WordPress powers more than 45.8% of all websites on the internet, which is why it’s an absolute go-to for website creators. You can read up on Why We Use WordPress here. 

Benefits of Hiring Elementor Experts

Elementor has an incredibly user-friendly interface but packs in a wide array of advanced features. At KIJO, we have years of experience working with Elementor and are experts at utilising all of its capabilities within tight deadlines.

We can introduce new insights and ideas to your web design, all with your brand and vision in mind. Elementor delivers ultimate customisation. Combine this with a web agency that knows the technology inside-out and save your business valuable time and money.

Elementor’s Industry-Leading Usability Makes for Speedy Delivery

Elementor’s interface is head and shoulders above everything else on the market. A standard web design agency usually spends hours designing purely in code on the backend. With Elementor, we edit and style our clients’ WordPress sites visually. This takes away the guesswork and is so much more efficient..

The drag and drop editor is fast, easy to use and fully streamlines the design process too. Elementor allows us to create an entire site from just one screen. No fiddly coding, switching back and forth or waiting for the page to update. With Elementor’s live editing, every change is instant. This means we can see exactly what we are creating as it happens. It couldn’t be easier to fine-tune even the smallest detail there and then. If there’s something you don’t like, Elementor’s Revision History function allows us to quickly retrace our steps and edit again.

In Elementor, we can create and save custom elements and set global fonts and colours that can be reused on any page of your website. This means that we don’t waste any time redoing the same job twice. Best of all, your site rarely experiences any downtime as we edit new pages in Draft Mode, so the rest of your site functions as normal.

Elementor Hosts Fully Customisable Themes and Widgets

You can use Elementor to customise every element of your site. Without a powerful page builder, such advanced editing would be prohibitively expensive. The plugin comes with hundreds of pre-made page templates that are fully customisable. If you’d rather, we can build page templates from scratch and save them for use across your whole site.

Elementor is compatible with the thousands of themes offered in the WordPress theme repository and can be used to edit these third-party creations. With Elementor Pro’s one of a kind Theme Builder, we can modify any theme’s core elements, such as headers and footers, that are tricky to edit with any other software. Other elements, including your site logo, author boxes and search bars, can be customised in line with your business branding.

Elementor breaks down smaller features into elements called widgets. These include everything from text boxes to image carousels, to testimonial features and videos. Using Elementor Pro, the KIJO team can customise every part of your website down to the pixel. This includes forms, price lists, portfolios, share buttons and calls to action. With more than 90 elements that can be modified, by using Elementor, your site won’t require dozens of additional plugins. Elementor keeps the design process streamlined, without compromising on originality.

Elementor’s Motion Effect Animations Bring Your Pages to Life

Elementor’s dedicated Motion Effects toolkit is a powerful feature that designers can use to add beautiful transitions and animations to your web pages. You can create dynamic pages with vertical and horizontal scrolls, transparency, blur and rotate effects, 3D tilts and more.

Before Elementor Motion Effects, incorporating such advanced visual effects required custom code or cumbersome external libraries. Now, we can quickly edit whole sections, columns and individual widgets to include any animation. Don’t limit your creative vision with hard to use and expensive design systems. Choose a web design agency that specialises in Elementor and bring your design ideas to life!

Elementor Works in Tandem With WordPress’ Open-source Code

No business wants their creative ideas quashed because of technical limitations. If you want something unique that isn’t currently available, open-source code makes this possible and affordable. 

Developers are creating and adding new capabilities to WordPress and Elementor communities every day. Elementor is compatible with thousands of high-quality plugins that have been created thanks to WordPress’ open-source code. But, you don’t just have third-party options to choose from. By using Elementor, the developers at KIJO can build widgets specifically for you and your business.

Easy Editing in Elementor Keeps Our Clients in Control

When you instruct a web design agency, it doesn’t mean you should require their services for every small edit and content update. At KIJO, we always aim to give our clients visually stunning websites, but that should never come at the expense of accessibility. 

Because we use Elementor, our clients are always able to upload content, swap out images and make daily changes in-house. There’s no coding barrier to prevent your businesses from being reactive and efficient. We’ve created this easy-to-follow Elementor basics guide. This will provide you with the knowledge you need to keep your WordPress x Elementor site’s content management in-house.

For bigger changes, of course we still recommend working with your agency. It’s easy to log in and move things around yourself, but one small change can impact the whole site. To keep your website design consistent, ensure site-wide functionality, and save yourself time in the long run, utilise your agency team.
