How To Create Blog Posts With Elementor Pro

Action Plan

Step 1: Create A "Single" Post Template And Publish Your First Blog Post

Elementor Pro is required for this step. The small commission we receive from your purchase helps us keep our tutorials completely free.

Why This Step Is Important

Elementor offers a special template for blog posts called “Single” templates. This will allow you to set a global design for all of your blog posts. You can even create global designs for specific categories, specific tags, and specific posts.

Step 2: Customize Your Call-To-Action Template

Elementor Pro is required for this step. The small commission we receive from your purchase helps us keep our tutorials completely free.

Why This Step Is Important

Every blog post on your website should lead users to perform a specific action (call to action). Some examples of a call to action could be signing up for your email list, filling out a form, downloading a file, scheduling a call, etc. You should have this call to action in mind anytime you create a new page or post on your website.

Watch Our Video Tutorial For This Step

This video will walk you through how to customize the call to action template found at the end of your blog posts using our “POST-CTA” templates.
