Few platforms dominate their respective fields the way WordPress does.

With 42% of all the world’s websites built with it, WordPress’ market share is more than double that of Squarespace, Wix, Shopify, Joomla and Drupal combined. It’s also tied for the most widely used platform powering eCommerce websites. Woocommerce, WordPress’ flagship eCommerce plugin, powers 23% of all online stores, tied with Squarespace Online Stores.  

So how exactly has WordPress solidified itself as the platform of choice for web creators? 

WordPress: What Works

Let’s get to pricing first. WordPress is completely free.
An open-source platform, web designers can leverage WordPress and its abundance of free plugins without worrying about being handed a bill.

Secondly, no other platform can be used to create websites as comprehensive and intricate as those built with WordPress.  

If you’re envisioning a website with dozens, even hundreds of landing pages; the kind that features a dynamic blog, and, perhaps most importantly, one that will generate and support substantial traffic, WordPress could be your go-to platform.

WordPress: The Challenges

By far the most seasoned of all CMS platforms, WordPress has been accompanying web designers since 2003. During that period, WordPress’ ecosystem has exploded. Thousands upon thousands of plugins have been created, all of which can be leveraged towards creating truly unique websites. Yet, nearly two decades since WordPress’ launch, the world of web design has undergone monumental changes.


Originally reserved exclusively for those who can code, the task of creating websites can now be undertaken by those with virtually no programming chops. However, the rather challenging nature of creating a WordPress website has remained unchanged:

WordPress was, and still is, a platform designed for those who can code. And therein lies the problem. Despite a number of available platforms offering users a code-free experience, not many can provide the end-result website that WordPress can.

This is where code-free WordPress site builders, such as Elementor come into play.

Elementor: An intuitive, code-free WordPress site builder

Launched in 2016 as just another WordPress plugin, Elementor quickly proved its weight in gold to WordPress web design devotees. Presenting users with an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface, Elementor has emerged as a powerful mediating tool; one which enables web designers to create a comprehensive WordPress website without needing to write a single line of code.

But code is only the first challenge solved by WordPress site builders such as Elementor.

They offer a number of tools that allow users to leverage WordPress’ unique structural elements, such as their templates and themes, towards creating stunning websites.
