  27. 27. Demo • Create a Page • Import template • Edit background • Change text • Editing experience mobile vs. Desktop • Show different elements 29
  28. 28. Use cases • Time2market > quickly build a page for marketing purposes • Prototype your page with Elementor > play around and see whats possible • One scroll / single page layouts • Not meant for building a corporate page with hundred pages • But maybe the tool to build that one special page,.. • It is not a tool to publish • blog posts • Longform text posts / text heavy pages 30
  29. 29. Findings • If you are completely new to WordPress you will be overwhelmed by the amount of options to design your site – not the best way to get started with WordPress • Newbies will create very ugly pages at first • A webdesigner can get pretty far without touching code • Case of good enough vs. custom made (CI/Branding) • Cant comment on performance of Elementor pages or how hard it is to manage a bunch of Elementor pages long term • If a design trend emerges you can expect that it gets integrated in Elementor (many releases / updates) • UI changes a lot! • If you are a WordPress geek you will have much fun with Elementor! 31
