Elementor Pro is required for many of the tutorials in our course

Elementor Pro is a paid add-on that gives you access to all of Elementor’s Pro features. Some of these features include headers and footers, blog post templates, archive templates, global widget styling, Pro template blocks, custom forms (contact, survey, MailChimp), call to action boxes, pricing tables, share buttons, and much more. The Elementor Pro add-on is going to make building your website a lot easier and save you a ton of time.

Elementor Pro costs $49 (one-time fee) and includes one year of support and updates. If you want to continue to receive support and updates after the first year (optional), the cost is $37 per year (25% off of $49).

Our website is supported by those who purchase Elementor Pro through the links on our website. The small affiliate commission we receive is what allows us to keep our tutorials completely free.
