Introducing NEW Advanced Widgets For Your Elementor Website
At the beginning of this year, we introduced two new advanced widgets for Elementor: Business Review and SVG Draw. These two widgets were highly requested by the community, and we were excited to introduce them. The SVG Draw widget allows you to create stunning and interactive graphics that will make your website stand out from the crowd. With the Business Reviews widget for Elementor, you can easily showcase your business’s credibility and trustworthiness by displaying your customer reviews in a beautiful and organized way. You can take a look at both of these widgets in more details below.
Build Credibility By Displaying Business Reviews In Elementor
The Essential Addons Business Reviews Widget is a powerful addon that can significantly benefit your business by increasing trust, credibility, authenticity, and more. By allowing website owners to showcase customer reviews on their websites, the Business Reviews widget for Elementor from Essential Addons can help you to build solid relations with potential customers.
Customer reviews are a powerful tool in building trust and credibility because they provide social proof that others have had a positive experience with a product or service. By prominently displaying customer reviews on a website, businesses can show potential customers they have a track record of providing high-quality products or services.
As of now, the Business Reviews widget from Essential Addons supports integration With Google Reviews, but we are planning to introduce more integrations for this widget to help you boost trust and credibility for your business.
In addition to increasing trust and credibility, the Business Reviews widget can also increase authenticity by allowing businesses to display unedited reviews from real customers. This can help to build a more authentic brand image and increase customer loyalty. Take a look below and see for yourself how your customer reviews are displayed with this advanced widget for Elementor.
Make Your Web Design Dynamic With Animated SVG Icons
The SVG Draw widget is a powerful tool that can greatly impact the aesthetics of a website. With its ability to create stunning, interactive graphics, the SVG Draw widget can help websites stand out from the crowd and engage users in new and exciting ways. One of the main benefits of using SVGs on a website is their scalability.
Unlike traditional image formats like JPEG or PNG, SVGs can be scaled up or down without losing quality or clarity. This means that they can be used across a range of devices and screen sizes without the need for multiple versions of the same image. Another benefit of using SVGs is their ability to be animated and interacted with.
The Essential Addons SVG Draw widget allows users to create unique and dynamic graphics that can capture users’ attention and make the website experience more engaging and memorable.
