We have not only grown in terms of our user-base but also in terms of the number of unique elements, which is currently 55+. At the special occasion of reaching this milestone, we want to share moments of our journey with you.
Why We Started
Why exactly did we start? Well, we had experience with page-builders previously and had addons for Cornerstone. The lead of Essential Addons, Rupok had experience to work with THEMECO and specially X-The Theme. Then the Essential Addons for Cornerstone was a success and when Elementor came in the market, we knew there is huge potential and wwe can add values to Elementor. We wanted to use our previous experience with page builders and provide value to the users of Elementor by adding unique elements. And we can say today, we were right about our trust for Elementor as it's now powering 1 million WordPress websites and and left the other page builders behind in very short time. Elementor lets anyone with zero coding knowledge build Websites that previously, only professional Developers could build. In fact, bloggers can also contribute to both the writing and designing process for their content now using Elementor.
From the side panel you can drag any of the elements into the builder interface and customize them based on your need. All you need to do is fill up the blank text fields, adjust some bars, use some drop downs to build your own custmized website.
We are very delighted to say, we have grown alongside Elementor. We take great pride in being the top addon library for Elementor with the highest number of Active Users. This feeling drives us to work even harder and motivates us to add more values for the users.
It Didn't Take Long To Reach Here
How much time does it need to reach 100K happy users? Well, we must say that the Customer Satisfaction lies at the core of it. Essential Addons was first uploaded to WordPress.org on in Mid-2017. And in just over a year, we have reached the milestone of 100K Active Users. Has it been easy? No, not really.
Always Trying To Improve The Product
We started with only few elements in our addon bundle. And after a year, we have now 55+ unique elements, and 29 of which comes with the FREE version.
In fact our bundle is so versatile that we needed to divide them up in six Distinct Groups. The Creative Bundle includes elements such as Lightbox and Modal, which lets you create amazing pop-up sections on your website, the Image comparison element that lets you compare two products by placing their images side by side. The Form Styler bundle includes element that connects powerful email marketing tools such as Mailchimp, as well as simple form builders like Contact Form 7, weForms, Gravity Forms.
