With the right add-on, you can unleash the power of Elementor as one of the best page builder plugins for WordPress. We have curated the best Elementor add-ons you can use for your next projects. All add-ons below come with the necessary widgets you need to be added to your design.

What is an Elementor add-on, by the way?

An Elementor add-on is a WordPress plugin designed specifically to work on Elementor. You can’t use an Elementor add-on without installing and activating Elementor on your WordPress website. An Elementor add-on is aimed at enhancing the functionality of Elementor by adding extra widgets and features that are not available on Elementor by default.

Elementor Pro is technically an add-on as it requires Elementor Free to work. Today, there are tens of Elementor add-ons available on the market other than Elementor Pro. However, not all of them really deserve your attention.

Here are our hand-picked Elementor add-ons worth trying.

1. Essential Addons

Looking for a free Elementor add-on that offers useful widgets? If so, Essential Addons is the add-on you can’t miss. The add-on is a product from WPDeveloper, the developer company that also develops other plugins such as BetterDocs, ReviewX, NotificationX, and EmbedPress. WPDeveloper releases Essential Addons as a freemium plugin. While there are a number of handy features you can unlock by upgrading to the pro version, the free version is more than enough for basic design.

The free version of Essential Addons comes with over 40 handy widgets. If you use form builder plugins like WPForms, Gravity Forms, to Ninja Forms, you can further style up your form from the Elementor editor as Essential Addons comes with widgets dedicated to styling forms powered by these plugins.

The pro version, meanwhile, comes with more advanced widgets, including the Google Maps widget which you can use to create a 360-degree virtual tour. You can add a live, Ajax-powered search feature on your website using the Advanced Search widget. Additional features like particle effects, content protection, and social media login are available on the pro version of Essential Addons.
