These past 5 years have been nothing short of a wonderful adventure–one where we faced new opportunities to make web designing on WordPress a better, faster and more fun experience for Elementor users.

When we first started our journey, we were a team of individuals who loved using Elementor and wanted to explore how we could expand the library and come up with new ways to make page building more exciting than before. That’s how Essential Addons came to be, all the way back in 2017. 

Back then, we’d started with only a few unique addons for Elementor, such as Post Grid, form plugins, Testimonials, Flip Box, and Pricing Tables. 

Soon, we were adding even more widgets that were much requested by the community, and before we knew it, we’d unlocked our very first milestone of 10,000 active users in only a few months!

Of course, that was just the beginning. Flash forward 5 years, and today, we are thrilled to say that we now have more than 80 exciting free and advanced widgets for Elementor, and nearly 2 million users from over 180 countries across the globe!
