After reaching 1 Million downloads in WordPress.org, our team decided to go all in on a single idea and commit to something bigger and better than we had ever built before. We decided to release Essential Addons 3.0 to reinventing how addons for Elementor works, reinventing ourselves in a way that would change the page building experiences for our customers.
Today, we are incredibly delighted to announce the release of Essential Addons 3.0. We firmly believe this new release is going to be an absolute game changer by providing incredible site-wide performance improvements.
With over 2 Million active installs, Elementor offers the most unbelievable page building experience for WordPress websites. Thanks to its user-friendly and drag & drop approach, even a newbie can design a stunning landing for their website under a few minutes. However, to get the best out of Elementor, you need to make sure that your pages load in a lightning fast pace. Besides, you are likely to get server side errors as well if you are using a cheap & low-quality host. To achieve this feat, you will need a top-performance hosting provider that can deliver the highly speed-optimized & secured website.
According to Amazon, a one second page delay could potentially cost them over $1.6 Billion sales per year. That just explains how severe the page loading is. This is exactly why you need a fast and reliable Hosting Provider. We have already given you an idea of how a poor-quality host can lead to a horrendous Elementor page building experience. Well, the same can be applied for our Essential Addons too. So, you really must concentrate on getting an excellent host service before getting started.
On the other hand, if users arrive on your Website while they are considering going for the PRO version, they will be looking for the pricing plans as well as key benefits of getting the PRO version. Moreover, apart from using the Landing Page to convert sales, you can also redirect users to it for gaining more subscribers. This makes your Website’s Landing Page so important.
The Elementor templates not only give you a jump start to your project, but they also make it possible to reuse and save the exact same template for multiple projects.

How to Export Template
To export an Elementor Template you need to first save the post as a template. You might have it saved as a post, but you can’t export posts as Elementor Template. You can only export Templates from the Elementor Library. A bit confusing? Let’s put it this way. Once you are done editing a WordPress Post with Elementor and save it as a draft, it doesn’t save as an Elementor template, it saves as a WordPress Post. On the other hand, when you save that WordPress post as an Elementor Template, you can give it a different name other than its title. Don’t worry, if you still feel confused. Read along and we will have enough screenshots and breakdowns to help you understand how the whole export/import thing work.
