Why should you use Interactive Content? Well according to Time Magazine, every average person loses their attention after eight seconds, which is a very narrow window. Also, it is enough to give the marketers make a run for their money!
Interactive Content Attracts Attention
Interactive Content has always been a better option compared to the traditional ones, simply because it engages the readers. Interactive content persuades its readers to execute a certain action. Which in turn adds value to user experience.
For example, simple text content might work best for certain scenarios. And if the wording, sentence structure is right it might bring you the desired conversion. But at other times, simple text will fail you. So what can you do to add value and engage your readers using simple text? Well, first of all, do not use Simple Text. And even if you do, make sure it has enough action infused with it.
What you see above is an Interactive Promo element. It is included in the Essential Addons bundle for Elementor. It is an elements bundle of only the top-notch elements for WordPress Website. In short, this element infuses the simple text with appealing animation. And the best part is, the element has its own format, all you need to do is fill out the necessary information inside the appropriate fields. And of course, without having to write a single line of code.
What are the elements you might ask? Elements are the building blocks for Websites. And Elementor is a drag and drop plugin for WordPress which lets you benefit from this block-based website building.
So, before we teach you how to create your very own Interactive Promo element, let's have a look at the Elementor Interface.
- This is the Side Panel. It includes all the elements available to you.
- This is the Footer Panel. You can redo/undo changes, Save your work as a draft or publish it.
- This is the blank canvas, this is where all the work is done. You can either start by adding a new template or by adding a new section.
And also know that Elementor is a great Front-End Page Builder. Which means you can quickly hide the side panel to see how your work will look live.
