Set up Landing Page
Once you’re on your Dashboard, first click on ‘Pages,’ then select ‘Add New’ and finally click on the ‘Edit with Elementor’ button. When you’re done, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the gear icon on the bottom left, and then switch the page layout to ‘Elementor Canvas’ so that you get to work on a blank landing page.
Add Elements to Landing Page
To add elements to your landing page, you need to click on the folder icon to add a template. You’ll then see a popup box, where you need to click on the ‘Blocks’ tab. You can now start adding different blocks to make up your landing page by using the select dropdown.

It is also referred to as the ‘Above the Fold’ section as it’ll be the first thing your visitor will see before scrolling the page and is undoubtedly the most important part of your landing page. That is why you need to place the most important and essential elements here, like the title, sub-title, and subscribe form.
This section will hold all the details mentioning the main services or features your business provides.
This is the section your clients would be highly interested in, as it will show social proof that your current clientele is satisfied with the services you’ve been offering them.
Here you can show the visitors a few examples of your work to know if your work resonates with what they’re looking for.
When your visitors scroll down the page, you encourage them to do what you want from them by placing a CTA (Call-to-action) button.
Customize your Elementor Blocks
To customize your Elementor blocks, you need to go over each block and make apt customizations that would fit your website or blog. You may consider customizing images, colors, title content, backgrounds, etc.
Now that mobile users are on a surge, you need to make sure that your landing page is optimized for mobile devices and is mobile-friendly. However, there’s no need to worry about doing it separately for mobile purposes. All these blocks are pre-designed as 100% mobile responsive. Thus, you can easily switch to the mobile view and start customizing paddings, margins, and other settings for mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets.
Preview your Landing Page
The last step before publishing the Elementor Landing Page is to preview it, which allows you to see how it’ll look when published. So, to preview your landing page, click on the eye icon on the bottom left panel. See if everything’s in order, and then publish your landing page.
You’ll then notice the green ‘Publish’ button changing into a grey ‘Update’ button. Congratulations on successfully building and publishing an Elementor landing page for your website!
