Still in beta mode, Elementor accelerated the launch ahead of schedule to enable its community members to join together to handle the unprecedented blow caused by the coronavirus to pro web creators, freelancers and small businesses.
Elementor originally planned on launching 'Experts' on its fourth anniversary in June as a premium service to its top-tier Expert customer base only. Recognizing the turmoil the coronavirus has caused web creators, Elementor has made the service available ahead of schedule to all pro plan holders free of charge for the duration of this crisis.
