Elementor Pro Or Pro Theme – Which Would You Buy If You Could Only Buy One?

published on July 19, 2020

I want to help you avoid buying something you don't need and quite frankly you're never gonna use now I get asked this question all the time and it's usually from people that are new to building a website and the question goes like this there's a lot of overlap

Between Elementor pro in the pro version of this theme that I'm thinking of purchasing which one should I purchase and why it's an awesome question because sometimes you know we don't want to just go and buy every single thing we see we

Have a budget yet but we do have a little bit of money to invest into something and we want to make the right decision on which that we choose to buy so I'm gonna try to answer that as best as possible in this video and I'll point

People to it in the future so let's go ahead and get started so Elementor Pro to be honest you might not even need it now I like to buy Elementor Pro first because I really want to support them and there's a ton of features in this

But to be quite honest there's a good chance that you don't need it so first it's a good idea to understand what comes in the pro version of Elementor before you even decide so obviously with Elementor Pro it's gonna come with some

Pro level widgets now these are going to give you features that are so essential to having a website and the alternative would be to use some free tool out there or some alternative paid tool out there now if you have more time using a free

Tool it's less expensive right it's going to be free but there might be a little bit more time involved in the setup but here's a list of the Pro elements that come with in Elementor the ones that you want to keep an eye on

Though is the form element because you're going to be able to use this for a lead capture if you're trying to capture any leads on your website and to create all types of contact forms on your website now a typical contact form

Might be $50 in and of itself but keep in mind there's lots of free contact form builders out there however this one is just so easy to use there's some other Pro elements in here such as login forms there's a slider there's advanced

Galleries but a lot of these elements to be quite frank you can now get inside a free element or add-on packages so you probably don't want to buy element or for that reason why you'd want to buy element or some of these power features

So if you hover over features it lists them out right here so one of them is some of their marketing related features right here there's a website personalization there's lead capture there's all kinds of features related to

Marketing but the big one is going to be the theme builder you see what elements are pros can allow you to do and you can kind of see it in this animated image here it's gonna allow you to build a header for your website and a footer now

These are traditional things you'd get out of a theme so essentially because if you had Elementor Pro you won't need those features in your theme this is one of the reasons I always suggest if you're if you only have money to buy one

Go ahead and buy element or pro but that's not all that there is so there's header and footer you can create styles for blog posts archive posts search pages if you're going to sell anything ecommerce you can create

And design product pages in WooCommerce you pretty much can do it all with this theme builder feature and you can also do something I'm not going to get into called dynamic content as well I've got advanced tutorials on all that here on

The channel another big feature and this is kind of essential for most websites is the pop-up builder this is all included in Elementor Pro now you're not going to usually get something like a pop-up builder in a theme it's only

Gonna come inside of element or pro and here you can see you could build all kinds of different pop-ups you just saw one slide in on the bottom right there to demonstrate that these pop-ups can be anything and you can totally leverage

The power that you fine inside of Elementor to build some very interesting pop-ups but like I said if you don't need the pop-up builder if you don't need the theme builder if you don't need some of these marketing

Features and really that form element you could just use a free add-on package such as happy add-ons it's completely free and it adds pricing tables and all kinds of elements that you might find in the pro version of Elementor but really

Where Elementor shines is this theme builder in this pop-up builder so then what happens is you can use any theme that is free if you're using element or pro because you're not gonna use a lot of the features in the pro version of

That theme anyway so there's a couple great ones such as the page builder framework there's a free version of this and the reason I'm bringing this up I recently did a speed test on all of these five different very popular free

Themes and page builder framework came out as the fastest of all of them another strong performer was generate press both of these themes have free versions and really if you're gonna use Elementor for your header and for your

Footer there's not a whole lot for most people in the pro version of these themes now if you are using if you're a developer then it's a different story there's some advanced features for developers advanced developers inside of

These themes but for the everyday average user you don't need the pro version typically of your theme if you're gonna use element or pro because a lot of that stuff is just built inside of Elementor pro hey I am just bringing

This up here because I want to help you make the right decision for yourself and really you might not need to buy anything if you are on the tightest budget you probably would be best off taking whatever financial resources you

Have and making sure you have some awesome web hosting and then you could start out for free with the free version of Elementor and a free theme but when the time comes to purchase one or the other and you can only purchase

One definitely go with element or probe now I will have links to everything in the video description box down below including if you clicked on that link to purchase element or I'm actually gonna give you a full training course that I

Made on Elementor that I sell for 199 dollars I'm gonna give it you access for free so you pretty much have everything you need to be successful building a website anyways I just wanted to answer this commonly asked question I'd love to

Have you in the facebook group as well there's a link to that down below hey what do you think about this video do you agree that Elementor Pro if you had one thing to buy it would be Elementor Pro over a theme but obviously if you

Had money to spend just go ahead and get both what do you think and I would like to hear from you in the comment section down below hey thank you for watching this video and I'll see you in the next one
