Excited To Announce Our First Funding Round!

From The Vault: Elementor Features and Hacks For Agencies

All right. Uh, good morning, everyone. Good morning, Ben. How are you today? Great, excited me too. Uh, day two of the web agency summit. Uh, yesterday it was amazing to see all of the, all of the beautiful people that joined us. See on the sessions as well as in the networking lounge, uh, people were hanging out at the sponsor.

And so today’s just starting and we have a whole lot of good stuff planned for the rest of the day. And then as we’re starting off, just think a few, or kind of give a few mentions for people that are already joining us here on the chat. How are you doing Lawrence? And I can see the kids I’m waiting for Ben Pines, whereas Ben.

So there is Ben right here. Uh, we have, uh, Richard joining us from the UK. Um, although some refreshes resign. Yes. And we have. Uh, at Ingram, how you’re doing emblem and we have mark joining us here as well. Eh, great. So a few people in here, Christy, how are you doing Kristy? And so, um, uh, please, um, if you have any questions for Ben, uh, posted them in the chat, we’re going to have, we’re going to go right into the session.

We have Colin joining us, Donna, joining us. Hello everyone. Eh, so. Please post your questions in the chat. This is going to be a very interesting discussion about the using elemental fall, uh, eh, for your agencies and for your freelancing business, a few hacks. It’s a really interesting, uh, uh, title, uh, that, uh, that we have there again, eh, I’m excited.

So if you have any questions, drop them in there. And, uh, after the session, we’re going to have a bit of Q and a. And let me give you the stage band I’m going to bring in your presentation. And let’s just dive right in. Maybe you can introduce yourself with people that don’t know who you are and take the stage from there.

Great. And hello everyone. And I want to first thank veto and the. Creating this amazing event and giving us the opportunity to have this discussion and lectures. Uh, I’m Ben I’m head of what creator program at Della mentor. And I want a quick show of hands. I won’t be able to see them, but a quick show of hands who here thinks at least once a day about increasing your agency’s ROI.

It’s like it’s the bottom line. It’s, it’s, uh, one of the most important things and challenging things. And today I’m going to talk about how you can do exactly that with Elementor. I’m not going to cover the technicals of building a website. We have tutorials for that, but rather the processes that can save you precious time and money for your agency, we’re actually going to cover.

Uh, several factors that agencies utilize like streamlining websites, specification expanding your marketing service, maintaining design consistency, empowering your developers and reducing maintenance. And as you can see a focus on different parts of the agency business operation, to help you out a bit about Elementor we launched in June, 2016 and quickly grew to.

Believe it or not 4.3% of the internet, uh, according to w three tech and this includes sites built. Freelancers large agencies of 50 plus employees and big brands like Crunchbase and grub hub. And if you think about it, how these agencies work is all new territory. Five years ago, uh, people used tens of thousands of themes and they had to customize them with.

And this has changed and successful agencies have adopted a different workflow. Nowadays, if you add to this, the surge in website, business, following the pandemic, all the businesses, moving to online, then you understand that the impact on agents. Where did these agencies go to learn how to properly adopt this new technology for their business?

You know, uh, for their, uh, management of employees and contracts, so many changes. And I personally love learning about these things at the lemon. We actively seek this information. It helps us bring the knowledge back to the user. We have many conversations, eh, with, eh, Agencies and freelancers, and we continually engage through our Facebook community.

We meet on virtual events and on live events, hopefully soon. Uh, we meet on one-on-one chats, focus groups. We recently started the webinars series, which actually delves deep into the agency work and ask questions about strategy, which you can see in the presentation. So we’re exploring this topic in detail for a few, few years now.

And today I want to share some of the insights. Uh, we found, uh, the first hack has to do with website specification. And this is a challenging stage because website specification is often a step that is not paid for by the client. So improving this and improving their workflow, there can do a lot of good to your bottom line.

You get a client, you need to create a specification for how the project is going to be. Eh, making it accurate is a challenge, especially for agencies who deal with more complex sites that spend dozens and hundreds of pages sometimes, um, sometimes you need to build a website for an intimacy you’ve never built for before.

Add to this, the fact that, eh, when you’re using WordPress and different plugins, uh, you can come across plugins. You you’re not familiar or plugins that might be conflicting. Um, so the, the process that agencies usually taken for. Um, you know, showering your client with questions to get as much information listening, intently, trying to reverse engineer, how you, your con, their competitors sites are built, then trying to sum it all up, all that research into one scope, and then you need to translate all of what you learned into the graphic design software, into WordPress and Elementor.

And then. Then you have to pray that nothing goes wrong. So a simple trick that can help is actually using elementeries website kit. A site kit template is basically templates that make up a full site and include all the pages of a website, like a homepage and about a contact page. And so on. We actually have a library of over 50 full site website, kids spending different industries.

Albeit built by our template, the team of in-house designers. So a, a quick, eh, aside here to mention that one of the, the head of this program or our site kits is going to be in our booth. So I invite you to join and ask Mayan questions related to this. So, eh, you can simply search for the vertical vertical you’re building.

Eh, and then see how it was built. It can really help you see which widgets were used. What kind of layout, where it was used, for example, this, uh, this, a page of one of our templates, um, that features a restaurant. And you can see that, uh, the, if you insert it and installed it, you can see all the backstage, how it was built in elementary, you can see the widget.

So for example, here, you can see the prices. Uh, priceless widget that is used, uh, for the menu and another page for a conference, much like this conference, and you can see a use of the countdown timer. So this is a great way to discover kind of the widgets and features that, eh, you can use in your, uh, Newport.

And make a really quicker way to scope out the project. Plus it gives you a few tricks that we use often in our templates. For example, here from one of our, uh, travel templates where we can see an image that is divided into three parts, and this is actually achieved by using the same image on three different image, widgets, and then aligning their position differently.

Um, so. It’s just a nice time-saver eh, and yeah. Um, basically you might have, as an agency, as an agency, you might have sort of the, uh, stereotype where you don’t want to use templates, but actually you can use it as a stepping stone as a starting point, uh, to scope out and maybe to customize a new, uh, a new site, uh, for your client.

Um, so what’s an another heck. Eh, make a, make sure you adhere to the right site specification. This has to do with scope creep scope, quick Crip. Eh, is it you discovered at a larger later stage, you’re probably familiar with it because it’s one of the challenges of agencies, uh, scope is when you define a certain scope for the project.

And then at some point. The project veers off that the scope, and it happens when the project is not properly defined and documented or controlled. Uh, and this may cause you to lose money on the project and don’t miss the possible deadline. This is very common, maybe even more so in an open source environment in WordPress, uh, because.

You can get the client expecting a certain feature that they have in their mind, but when you implement a new plugin, you haven’t used before, uh, you can. Uh, you can’t come across a, like a conflict, so how can Elementor help with scope creep? So instead of regarding elementary, as an additional part of your toolbox, some agencies have actually incorporated it into their proposal.

As you can see in the presentation, uh, this is from an actual proposal. Write down your proposal and you limited to the scope of Elementor this way you can align the project scope with your client and this way reduce the chance of conflicts between plugins, um, the client expecting something else. Um, and of course you can also, if the client does want to add a different plugin or something more custom-made maybe with custom code.

Add on this, an additional, uh, pricing, uh, maybe a premium pricing. And then again, you can leverage your ROI. So we talked about a major time savers for the specification part, but what about some upsells? So we’ve seen many successful agencies that combined web design and digital marketing services. It’s it’s very common now to offer the offer is.

Eh, list of, of services. And at elemental, we recently expanded our stock of marketing tools to help cater to exactly these services. So. At the start by removing several tools and replacing them with one tool, your workflow can greatly benefit. So if you use our form builder, pop-up builder and integration to CRM and email marketing service, you can offer your client lead gen services, eh, and manage it in a way that is much easier because it’s done with one.

Um, and you should check out what we recently added was, uh, uh, which is a landing page builder, and this aggregates all your landing pages into one dedicated area, making your workflow that much easier. We also added 50 trendy landing page templates that you should definitely check out. So why not offer this service of billing, either landing page or.

Even funnels, which is a very, uh, top, uh, trendy thing nowadays. Uh, you’re probably familiar with the concept of marketing funnels, which follows the steps, leading the users through the journey, right up to the purchase and registration and beyond. Um, so helping you manage the funnels are also the form submissions, a feature we actually released last week.

And this collects all of your leads in one. And you can filter them. So you don’t need an extra plugin or another software to collect all your leads. Add to this, uh, tracking code because no funnel is complete without tracking. We recently added a. The ability to add tracking code and code snippets. Uh, you simply drop off the code and all your code snippets are concentrated in one area with all the tools we just mentioned, you can actually build amazing funnels that generate sales and leads to your clients.

And we actually use it ourselves. Uh, we actually use these funnels to promote our various activities like webinars. So for our webinars series, Uh, we built a simple funnel that combined a landing page, a form. Thank you, page and a newsletter sequence. So how it works is we advertise the webinar, eh, to our audience, the user subscribes through our form that is connected to our email marketing service, uh, email marketing software.

Then the user is redirected to the thank you page. To continue their journey. Then we automate the sending of the reminder sending of the recording after the webinar. And of course, everything is tracked through pixels and it’s very simple to manage all of this funnel with one tool and one interface and not get, uh, you know, having to delve deep into code and insert, eh, the, the tracking codes and.

Eh, follow all the steps of the funnel this way. The third hack has to do with another crucial issue for any agency, which is maintaining design consistency. Uh, so as we mentioned, agencies that build websites even more. So if it’s elaborate sites, um, consistency is definitely a challenge. Um, We’re here to help.

And what you can actually do is use Elementor is global colors and fonts. AKA our design system features so you can set your colors and fonts once and then use them across your site. If the client needs a change or you decide to change one of the colors or fonts, you can do that very simply. And it reflects across your entire.

Also help for helpful for consistency is actually reusing blocks. So it’s a pro-tip, eh, this is from one of the agencies that we interviewed. They actually built a master page for every project. And when they create the rest of the pages, they simply pick and choose the different blocks, save them and reuse them across the site.

And one designer. Actually managed to create a library of amazing templates is John fresh Gus. So shout out to him. He builds a library of blocks from the blocks, also a template kits, and you can check them out at analog WP and this way. All of the work becomes more efficient. If you’re using, let’s say it doesn’t have to be for the same site.

If you’re using a CTA that worked well on your client, you can then customize it to work well on a different client. Then as the more you use element or the more you can build your library of templates. Um, and this is a great time to actually give a sneak peek of a future. So in the current developer edition plugin that you can check out, we are running a version that allows you to import and export an entire element or website kit, and you can transfer it with one click.

And this includes all your site templates, all your con content, your site settings, even your custom code. So all you have to do is make a click and you can transfer. Uh, this is very helpful. Let’s say if you are running a staging environment, so transferring a site, or if you’re creating a university website that has different websites with the same design, you can do that.

It’s great help. I’m sure. For many of you, eh, with an agency or a freelance business, Also maintaining consistency has to do with managing access to your site. Because as you can see in this example, a unfortunate Lego exhibition that went wrong. When the organizer didn’t manage the excess properly at elementary, we have, eh, you can take advantage of our road manager and many agencies take it just takes a minute to set it up.

Many agencies use it, use that so they can be assured. Every person handling the website has the right access. So if it’s the designer, they can have complete access. You can restrict it just to, uh, for your client to edit the content, maybe, eh, or restrict access entirely and steal on, uh, maintaining, uh, consistency while you’re using elementary.

If you are focused on. Using the, eh, fewer plugins as possible. This can really help, eh, because you’re using less plugins, less interfaces. You don’t have to. Come up with new ways to adapt. Let’s say your form plugin designed to your website design. It’s easier for you to work and eventually it’s an easier workflow.

Eh, again, saves time saves money. Plus you don’t have to use loads of CSS to customize every element of your site. And, uh, another point on, uh, maintenance on, sorry on maintaining consistency is. Many agencies adopted a model where, eh, they don’t divide the project into. Uh, design and then moving it to development for implementation.

So instead you can go straight from prototype to Elementor, uh, when you’re doing, doing that, you’re, uh, reducing the chance of inaccuracies because, uh, I’m sure. Come across it. When you pass it to a development and implementation, some incongruities and inaccuracies can happen. And this causes more rounds of corrections, which means more effort and more resources from your agency.

Within a mentor, you can move from Figma, from any design tool you use to Elementor and actually show the client a live preview in. Um, another advantage of this workflow is you have multiple designers kind of jump into the project at various stages. There’s no separation of no. Now it’s gone to the developer implementations.

And it saves your developers. Don’t worry developers. You’re not going to be without, eh, work because it saves them all the hassle work and lets them actually focus on what’s important. And speaking of developers, eh, Elementary is, is really a great tool that many developers, eh, used to, um, develop their own widgets, their own.

Plug-ins I really recommend you use, uh, the Elementor blog, eh, for developers, we have a dedicated block for developers with tutorials. Uh, we have a developer API. You can connect with us on GitHub. And we found that agencies that manage to do that really can leverage what their developers are doing because they can a solution that they can create for one client can actually serve other clients.

They can even create integrations and extensions that they can, uh, then, uh, publish and even sell. So, uh, Besides building your own extensions, you can also take advantage of over 800 add-ons that are available in code canyon in the WordPress repo. There’s even a site called witch ad-on that lets you see all the functionality and see which add-ons offer.

What? So, um, this extends what you can, uh, build and develop with the elementary. Uh, so definitely, uh, the ad-ons, uh, ecosystem is something you have to check out as an agency to expand your service and make sure you are able to create more. Developers can also incorporate a dynamic content which really empowers developers in your agency.

If you’re not familiar with what is dynamic content, it’s a feature that lets you add content from custom fields, database base from many external sources and add them to your. Dynamically meaning you create pages that have a certain design that was built with Elementor, but the content is received to that page dynamically from external sources with this, you can build amazing websites I have here, in example.

Um, eh, this is Shane Thomas, uh, which I spoke to a few days ago. He’s actually a website photographer from Austria and he built an amazing user generated content website that teaches a wedding photography. So he actually got photographers from all over the world. To fill simple WordPress custom fields.

This is the form that part of the form, it’s a long form that used, um, and they simply field the fields and those fields. Don’t delve deep into how to photograph weddings. What he then did was utilized the dynamic content to turn this, you know, boring form field into an amazing layout and design. Uh, so check out the site, hist.app, and you’ll be able to see, uh, the amazing content that is there.

And this is, uh, he, he allowed it, there are free tutorials. You can see there are paid tutorials, you can see, and, uh, he’s actually built a subscription service out of it. And it’s, uh, using an amazing, uh, tool that can really leverage your development. And merged like the ability of developers building custom fields and the power of the front end design over the mentor.

The fifth hack has to do with simplifying your main service. Um, so the more complex the website and the project, the larger, the possibility of error and. Uh, maintenance service is something that is very common, a common service that the design companies offer, uh, and something, this is a problem. So Ben, before we dive into this, because this sounds like something that I really want to listen to.

So I’m going to keep this on this cliffhanger and we’re going to see a message from our sponsor 10 seconds. And we are back itself, WordPress warriors at grid pain. We help serious WordPress professionals smash their hosting problems once. And for all, if you want to see how check us out and we hope you learn a ton this week at the web agency summit.

All right. So we’re back here with Ben Pines from elemental. Uh, first of all, Ben, I want to thank you for coming on board for doing this presentation. I’m already learning a whole lot. And to be honest, I’m already doing a lot of the stuff that you’re saying. So I’m feeling pretty confident in my skills, thanks to this presentation.

Eh, and, um, there’s a bunch of questions that are all, any kind of piling up on. Chat. So I’m excited to get to the Q and a Q and a part of this, uh, later on, on the session. And now let’s dive in simplify your maintenance services, then the stage is yours. Okay. So, uh, you know how it is, you get a call from a client a year after the project is.

To fix something in their website that went wrong and you, maybe it happens after an update, uh, and you open up the website and it’s frankly, it’s like reading a poem that you wrote when you were 17, you don’t recognize like someone else build it. You have to figure out, uh, and you know, figure out how you built, how you use the custom code, how you build the functionality.

Eh, Which plugins you use, how they changed over time, the amount of brain power you need to spend to figure out what you did. Um, but actually you want to offer maintenance service because you want your kid to be happy even after the project is well over with, um, So again, we’re talking about reducing the number of plugins you use, uh, as well as the number of custom code that is needed.

And so, uh, uh, an amazing agency that, uh, Suzy, a small agency based in Philadelphia, uh, Barbara and mark, they run wicked design. And what they did is, uh, I think it’s a, it’s nice in their maintenance service price. They actually write that, eh, they only support WordPress themes, uh, that are compatible with an, a mentor and what that does when they entered that project a year later, they know how, uh, the project was built because they built it with Elementor.

Uh, Eh, there are much more, there are less likely to be surprises. There are much less work, less a chance for overhead on the complication and they can actually streamline their maintenance service and offer the same service, but have it cost. Um, so they did an extra step that, uh, is I think, very effective.

They created a library of Elementor tutorials, so their clients are onboarded. Uh, once the project is done, so they know how to use the tool. You can imagine how this reduces the maintenance hours. So if you’re on a retainer, It’s a no-brainer and it’s very cost-effective. So to wrap up, eh, we want over streamlining the website, specification, optimizing your marketing service, having a consistent design, empowering your developers and reducing maintenance.

Eh, for me, it’s always fun to discover new ones. Web crater agencies are able to become more efficient to increase their ROI. And if you have any more tips to share, I’d love to hear about them in the Q and a so. Thank you very much. Thank you, Ben. And this was super interesting to dive in and learn how to leverage more out of, uh, out of elemental and really what I had the opportunity of, um, meeting you back in Berlin, uh, back in WordCamp Europe in 2019.

And, uh, you know, I, I saw you that you had your meetup. You were there shaking hands. So it’s, it’s like, it felt like a Jewish wedding, right? Whenever parents are standing at the entrance. Thank you. Welcome. Thank you. Now we miss so much, you know, even that ability to, to, to go and have these conferences, like a dream vacation right now.

I think all, yeah, I can’t wait to cut to go back to this and even meet you guys. I heard you, you moved to a new offices. So last time I was in Israel for conferences. I was also like, I haven’t been back there in like almost a year and a half now. And so we got an opportunity to come and hang out to the offices a little bit.

And that was, um, that was a great experience for me, especially as I was just starting off my product, uh, back then. Eh, so, uh, thank you. Thank you. The office here. It looks amazing. I started the pictures that Yani posted. It looks amazing. I can’t wait to come and visit you guys. And so now let’s go over to the Q and a section and let’s have a look if we have, yeah.

We have a bunch of stuff here that, so I’m excited to dive in. If you have any questions for me. Please drop them in the chat. We’re going to go for 10 seconds and be back right away.

So Ben actually, before we dive into some of those questions, I want them to take two minutes to talk about something. One of the tips or the hacks that you mentioned here about using those blocks. And this is something that we also preach within Ethereum for our youth. As to systemize the work and stop thinking that you will need to build everything from scratch every single time.

And I want him to even point down if I can the file, share my screen here for a minute. Uh, something that you guys can get. If you’re getting the full app, the all access pass for the event, uh, we’re giving away, uh, A template for elemental ploy. You have to have a mental port to use this template. And this is for building a full page layout, a website prototypes and wireframes.

So it can see if I’m going to scroll down. Uh, now you can see what we did with the same concept exactly. As you’re describing Ben, the idea is that you have one single page with all of the different sections of four to five different types of sections that you would find on a standard modern website.

And then instead of creating you just delete that reminded me of what you said with, um, uh, with our friend from w from analog w. And that also created those kinds of kids. And so you need a headache, just choose the one that you want to delete. The other ones that you don’t want, the hero section, just skip one or those fives, icon sections, every website has these, uh, icon types of things.

Maybe like this, maybe like that. Right? Eh, content areas. Um, I think that the more you can systematize what you’re doing and actually. Empower this whole workflow. And this includes also giving your clients more access, eh, letting them make changes if needed, the more you reduce the, you know, the technical, eh, points where you need to jump into the project.

The more you can focus on, you know, the more strategy, uh, part of the business, like how you can, uh, Give more value to our client for the same price. Eh, how you can also invest back in your own name. Which is very important. And I agree, and I remember from my agency days, this cell was, uh, one of my minds.

And especially as you scale and you start to bring, to build a team around the, around the company, uh, you don’t want to, to get to a scenario that every designer is building with their own mindset, uh, using margins or using paddings. What kind of width are you going to build? So, um, creating a consistency food, Internal templates.

I think it’s something that is very smart for a lot of agencies to too. And plus, as a, as an agent, as an agency owner, um, you don’t want to be in all of the details of every page. So if you get a client that sort of comes to you and says, what is this. And the designer builds something that you’re not aware of.

That could be not, not that, uh, really I’ve had this conversation a few times and you start, uh, yeah, this is, uh, yeah, yeah. Kind of creating the limits. So you, you are more in control of what is happening and this is something I think that is very important when you. Building websites that are increasing in complexity.

I agree. So let’s dive into some of the questions that we have here from, uh, a, from the chat. Uh, so there’s a whole lot. I’m going to scroll down a little bit, right? Let’s even start with this one. Is there any way to have blocks with global, with a global lens? And specific insight specific content. And that is one part that is still that I still miss with elemental.

That’s from David. Um, yeah, over, uh, any suggestions, uh, you know, uh, I I’m, we’re happy to, to, to receive them and, and, uh, and think about them. I think that if you’re talking about eh, dining. Um, dynamic templates. You can, you can actually do that with the feature that I mentioned, which is a dynamic, eh, content, and what we’ve seen this utilized for, you can use it to even create dynamic colors, eh, or dynamic images.

So you can create hundreds of pages that let’s say a good example is for a listing. So a listing site. What it, what is a very common at listing sites is that you have a, sort of a different layout than a simple. Uh, because you have all the amenities and the different icons, so you can build all of that.

Uh, full we’ve seen job sites builds like this and, uh, real estate sites. And, uh, you build the template once and insert dynamic content. Then you can actually, eh, get hundreds of pages done using the same design with dynamic. Okay. I love that. And really, this is something that we’re also using, uh, with, uh, within an elemental pool.

And there’s a question here from Lawrence. What can you tell us a little bit about the cloud offering? Uh, what would it cost and when will it launch, who will be your infrastructure partner? Um, so we’re currently with the cloud. We’re currently testing it out, uh, and, uh, we really want to get as much information that, uh, that we, that we have.

To really have it give value and be mature in it. And a great for launch. I I’m, I don’t know about specific dates when we’re going to launch the, we, we launched it currently as a, as a, as a testing platform. Uh, but yeah, hopefully soon and hopefully it’s going, it’s going to reduce a lot of the, a lot of the frictions that a web creators.

Great. That’s awesome. So let’s move on to another one. Will elemental provide a Heather mega menu functionality as some clients are liking the whole images slash text dropdowns that appear when you click on a menu item rather than it just being a dropdown sub sub menu. Yeah, this is we, we know this is a much requested feature.

Uh, uh, you know, it’s, uh, it all comes down to priority. So, uh, w we, we have. Things we want to add. Uh, and currently there are actually solutions for mega menu. Uh, so we’re probably going to develop it sometime in the future. But, uh, there, there are, there are stuff ahead that, uh, are more kind of, uh, All right.

So I have another question from David. I think it’s a photo op for what we said before. I’m a bit confused about the kids and if they are only available in the newer plans, I remember reading something like that on the pricing pages. Um, Could you could anyone clear this confusion? Okay. So that’s a good question.

We have, uh, kits that are available, uh, to, uh, the, in, in the, the core version and, uh, provision. We are, uh, releasing new kits that will be available for people with experts and expert plan. And. So, this is definitely something that, uh, will be added, um, and it’s additional additional kids. Okay. And at the moment, though, everything that we talked about is oil is still available for everyone that is on there.

We’re not going to remove any of the kids that are available. We’re just going to add a, if I’m not mistaken, A hundred more. Yeah. Okay. That’s good. And I have a question here for Thomas. Actually, he asked two questions. Um, are you planning deeper integration with Gutenberg? Eh, that’s number, we’ll start with this one.

Um, well Gutenberg is, uh, is of course a, a great tool and we might definitely, uh, integral. We still need to see how it, it is going to. Eh, we used an implemented in the full site editing, but it’s definitely on the, on the table. Um, yeah, but, uh, this remains, we did create a plugin that lets you add templates, uh, to Gutenberg and uh, yeah.

Okay. So I’m basically now just, we’re just waiting to see how Gutenberg pans out before you’re going to move on with most specific features right now. Now it’s more of a. Content a writing tool. That’s how we use it actually, uh, in one of our blogs. And it’s a great tool for blogs. It remains still to be seen how exactly the full site editing will be implemented.

Eh, but then we will. Have a better idea how to do it. Okay. That’s cool. So I’m going to stay with Domus here for question number two, and that might be a hard one for you. Ben. I often hear Elementor is slow compared to Gutenberg or oxygen builder. I am a heavy user of Elementor and would like to know, are you planning to focus on excessive, uh, dome, uh, use and overall speed?

So great question. And in the last few months we’ve gone into, uh, you know, Brazil work mode in implementing amazing performance improvements that include asset loading and Dom improvements and eh, JavaScript reduction. So in many other ways, we want to, uh, improve the speed. You know, when you get a mature.

Uh, website builder that has seven powers, 7 million plus websites. Um, of course it will be with, uh, more, um, you know, historical, eh, eh, infrastructure. And it, it, it, it will be more, uh, bloated where, but this is. Yeah, the advantage is you get a more mature website builder, uh, but we’re definitely improving on a monthly basis.

Uh, each release has amazing performance improvements, so I’m excited to see that, uh, what’s uh, at scope. And I wouldn’t even say, you know, we have a session coming up later today about, uh, eh, Google’s latest, uh, web vitals, uh, a update. And how is that going to be, uh, panning out for elemental users? Um, well, web, uh, the web vitals, again, it’s something that, uh, we, we, we know about it for about six months ago and, uh, we’ve, uh, started working really hard in implementing all of it.

The changes, uh, that I mentioned before. Um, so definitely we’re prepared for it and we also want to make our users prepare for it because, uh, sitespeed has to do a lot with, uh, things like caching and hosting an image size. So we’re planning, uh, more content around this to, to get people informed. Uh, In the Facebook community that a rerun, eh, you know, we see dozens of people posting about, you know, amazing performance results that they’re getting with Elementor or so it’s a lot, uh, a measure of, um, optimization and, uh, definitely important and definitely, um, on our scope and, and on our minds.

Okay. That’s great. So let’s have a nice one here from.

yeah. Sorry. Yeah. Yeah. I got stuck for a minute, but I’m back. So, uh, I have, uh, a nice message from my failure, a band, huge Venezuela fan from former chiller and I use. And I used that a mental life for everything, especially for e-commerce now. So this is just a nice one that I wanted to bring to the table.

I can say that, uh, we’re going to add more features do e-commerce this year. So this is exciting. So expect, uh, expect the new things, uh, Okay. And, uh, we got into elemental clubs. I have a question for Sam here from, uh, eh, from cloud ways after it is launched. Will you recommend it over other hosting providers?

Um, I’d think this depends on the, the, the user, uh, and you know, different times. Platforms are a good fit for different users. So I’m not sure if we’re going to recommend it to every user on the earth, but, uh, if we see that it’s helpful and people like it. Yeah, we’re definitely gonna recommend it.

Essentially. This is targeting completely different, uh, audiences, uh, eh, compared to the current elemental tool. Is that a fair statement, Ben? Um, I’m not sure. I don’t think so. We, our focus is on web graders. Um, you know, uh, professionals who built sites for a living. And, uh, I think that, uh, this has remained our focus, uh, throughout the years.

And this is the audience that we’re thinking about and simplifying the work. It’s not just something. I mean, when you’re building a site, it’s not just something that is needed by, you know, novices it’s also much needed by agency owners and freelancers who actually want to, um, to, to focus on what’s important.

Um, but definitely I think that, uh, there are different users, users among. Eh, group of web creators. So you have, eh, larger agencies, you have aspiring web creators that are just starting out. Um, and here I think the different services and different hosting and the cloud platforms cater to different users.

So if anyone has any more questions,

Hey, that ban is Andrew. I’ve just jumped in while Vito’s sorting himself. Hey, how’s it going, Andrew? Yeah, it’s good. It’s going good. Let me just turn the volume down a bit. So, uh, I can, I can get in there cause I’ve got a sign it’s you in the, in the, in the, uh, thing there. So sorry about that while Vito’s gone.

Let me just, uh, I think there was a, are there more comments? Yeah, I think that there is, uh, there was, uh,

you know, I’m not calling about the iPad. You can close this one.

Thank you for jumping in Andrew. Some technically it’s not going to be a live event without this, something like this happening for sure.

All right. So, um, uh, Let me mute everything here because, because as we started dying then, so we have a few more minutes and there’s a few more questions. Sorry about that. And let’s see what we have had the same in my head. The, yeah, you’re doing a great job. All right. So, uh, uh, right here, let me see. Okay.

With the new honeypot option added to the form builder, do you have any port tips to successfully utilize the honeypot to provide even deeper security? Um, this is a question that, uh, should be pointed to, uh, our dev team probably, but, uh, I think if you’re using honeypot and you’re using a recapture, I not sure how, how much more you, you need to get.

You can always use other tools like, uh, kismet, but, uh, I don’t don’t have specific, uh, ways you can, you can boost. If they’re getting spam, uh, then I don’t know, maybe, uh, it’s, it’s, it’s always a problem, you know, eh, you can’t avoid it. I agree. And these happens on, uh, on all kinds of different, uh, solution.

Ask him that is really the way to go when you seeing this, uh, uh, this happening, eh, somehow they figured it out really. And all right. So I have another one here for my belt. I saw the new paper button. Um, will there be a Stripe option anytime soon? And Joe is backing the map, backing him up. That would rock.

Yeah. Eh, I know that this was mentioned a few times after the release, so definitely we’re delving into it and seeing if we can expand it to, to Stripe it currently. Uh, I’m afraid I have to say that, uh, it’s not available available, but, uh, yeah, we’ll, we’ll probably. I it at some point. Okay. So I have an interesting one here.

Um, uh, maybe you can give us a, like a little sneak preview into the upcoming years roadmap. Can you hint on some more things that will come this year? And a few people are saying yes, yes. I’m back in second question. So we are going to, uh, uh, work a lot, as I mentioned on, eh, more e-commerce. Uh, solutions like expanding the e-commerce solution, adding more marketing tools.

Eh, we’re also working on a look builder, which is something many, uh, users, uh, have requested and, uh, custom breakpoints, hopefully we’ll, we’ll let come out, which is something we’ve worked hard on, you know? A lot of the times that we get a request and we start working on it and it, eh, you, you, you discovered that it’s a much more, uh, difficult to yeah.

To make it right, because we don’t want to just ship out a feature and have it, you know, conflict and have, uh, issues. Uh, that’s why it’s, uh, some of these features have been in the, in the oven for a few, uh, A few months, but, uh, yeah, definitely exciting things are going to, to be released. Okay. And so I have one from Krista here regarding the payment button.

Can that be implemented to the form with dynamic amount, the form now, right. Does she mean like a, the form being a donation form or something like that. So, uh, so I think that Kristi means here, uh, is talking about, um, a dynamic amount. Like that would be from maybe a query string, maybe something that works a little more like WooCommerce, then it rather than just insulting the one payment, uh, 50.

Into the block, uh, having something that is a little more dynamic around it, but so maybe even with, with dynamic content, uh, based on how it’s working right now, you know, that you could pull in from a custom field or something. That’s actually a great suggestion. Uh, the way we usually work with dynamic content is we gradually added, uh, to different parts.

So yeah, that’s, uh, I’ll, I’ll definitely pass this along. Okay. Awesome. And we are a few people saying, wow, Luke builder for Melissa Love. And we have David saying that is fabulous loops. Yeah. So I have one last question before we wrap up a for question from Lawrence and it has the community relaxed to base a bit following the plan pricing changes.

Um, yeah, I think the, you know, it’s always important to do proper, uh, Proper research when you’re kind of feeling out what is the sentiment amount about any change that you make, of course, veto you also made the pricing change recently, and it’s only natural that we received some, eh, you know, feedback, eh, following the, uh, the, the new plans.

But, uh, yeah, I think that, uh, we were seeing that people appreciate the need for. Um, you know, premium support, chat, support that we’ll be offering. And so I think that this, uh, this is, uh, accepted and, and is well received. Um, I see Vito is again, out of the, out of the chat. Maybe I can see if there are any more comments here.

Okay. So I’ll take the opportunity to thank everyone who visited. And I invite you to the booth where you can ask, uh, about templates and, uh, uh, talk to my aunt who heads the, this project. Um, and it’s been a pleasure to, uh, to be here and, uh, talk to you Vito and. No, thank you for coming over Ben, and I’m sorry for jumping in and off a couple of times or free for the rest of the thing it’s local and it’s my machine.

So I have a backup that I’m going to fire up right now. Eh, and yeah, thanks for coming in. Thanks for sponsoring. And like you’re saying, please come over to the booth, uh, check out what elementary has to offer over there. And I’m, I’m excited to see what’s coming up for the rest of the year. Thanks, man. For sure.

Thanks for you. Bye-bye bye.
