Please note that the digits in brackets e.g. (00:02) indicate the minutes of that exact explanation in the video so you can easily jump to that section and follow along.
Platform 1: Template Kits by Templately
This is a product from WP Developer, these are the developers of the Essential Addons for Elementor, with over a million active installs and it’s therefore the most popular WordPress Elementor addon.
Templately offers more than just website templates, it also enables you to create your templates and store them on the My Cloud platform then you can be able to reuse them for your different web projects as well as share them with your team members (00:43)
They have beautiful layouts for Elementor as well as Gutenberg block designs, you can also get different header options that are responsive to different devices and browsers like Chrome, Opera, and it is also compatible with the Elementor page builder..

Platform 2: Elementor Template Kits by MonsterONE
This brings together a lot of digital resources which include WordPress resources. In this case we are interested in the Elementor kits (02:19)
The Elementor Kits available on this platform are neat designs from different developers. This gives you more options to choose from several designers with different tastes.
Check out the example in the video (02:55). Here you’ll find a beautiful set up with a header, a nice hero, a call to action button, counters, gallery etc, which are all modern and well built.
They provide you with different designers so you have options to choose from and you can have different designs from landing pages to complete website kits with inner pages, and you can simply do a one-click demo install and have all the website resources in your WordPress website.

Platform 3: Elementor Kits Library
The next platform I’ll share with you is the Elementor Kits Library. (04:17)
This is one of the most well built kits libraries. With it you’re able to import complete pre-made websites and you can simply customize them to your preference.
All you need for this is the“Hello Theme”, which is a free Elementor theme, and you’re able to import either a free or a pro template kit from Elementor.
In this Kits Library you’ll have over 100 well built kits for different industries like E-Commerce, Events, Entertainment etc. (04:38)
Let’s look at an example; Music & Bands.
You are able to preview the kit or you can even preview individual kits in their individual live previews, you also get extra goodies like pop-ups.
I’ve created a tutorial on how to import and use Elementor kits and if you’re interested in learning this check out here.
To access the kits library all you need is the Elementor Pro subscription. If you have the free version of Elementor you’ll only be able to access a few of the template kits
Platform 4: Elementor Template Kits by Envato Elements
I have been creating so many website tutorials using the Envato Elements. These have a special plugin that you install into your WordPress website; I’ve also created a specific tutorial on that. (05:54)
Envato brings together a bunch of amazing premium looking and pro-made website template kits that you can use in your WordPress website and they work well with any other theme that you have, all you need to have is Elementor.
Some kits will require to have Elementor Pro because some features like the headers and pop-ups may require you to actually have the pro version of Elementor, but that doesn’t stop you from importing some of those kits and checking them out, or grab some sections from the kits to use in your website projects.
Let’s look at one of these template kits; for example, Creativa for web design agencies; it has 17 templates and they’re all reusable, it has two homepages, stories, services, pricing, packaging, and all these cool resources (06:46)
This kit also requires you to have Elementor pro upgrade in order to access some templates and features, but that still doesn’t stop you from using these templates in your WordPress website and ignoring the pro features.
For example, if you want to create your headers using your theme, you can ignore using the Elementor headers. Though if you have Elementor Pro you’ll enjoy using the template kits more.
In order to access these template kits within your WordPress website you just need to install the Envato Elements plugin. I know you won’t be disappointed if you check them out or even if you try using some of the template kits.
If you are considering subscribing to the Envato Elements, please use my affiliate link.
It won’t cost you any extra amount, but I’ll get a small commission on the purchase you make, so I can be able to make more interesting tutorials and videos like this one!
Platform 5: Astra Template Kits
Astra is one of, if not the leading starter templates plugin that you can simply install into your WordPress website and you’ll have access to over 180 pre-made websites.(08:22)
These are complete sites and once you click import, it will import the whole suite including images and icons and whatever else has been used in that template kit, and all the necessary plugins.
For example if you want to search for a hotel template kit you’ll be given a couple of options; mostly premium, but you’ll also find some free ones and you don’t have to buy an extra plugin to access these template kits. (09:08)
If maybe you’re questioning; Why would they have to pay for the extra subscription to get the premium template?
Checkout for example this design that looks really premium! (10:01)

It is a top notch design with great consistency, the colors, fonts etc; everything is just aligning together. It’s worth it! Not only do you get hotel templates, but also many other amazing templates available.
In case you are having some of your sections built using Gutenberg, you can as well access some Gutenberg templates (10:35)
Note: you don’t necessarily have to import the whole kit, you can just import a certain page and add it to your Elementor or Gutenberg website.
I think now you’re getting an impression of what you can actually get out of some of these template kits, they save you a lot of work without limiting your creativity, and most of them are 100% mobile responsive, meaning your website visitors can easily view these website template kits on mobile devices. Just like here (11:12)
They can be viewed on mobile phones and tablets, the navigation also works just great!
Platform 6: ThemeForest Template Kits
The last one I’m going to share is ThemeForest.
ThemeForest gives you access to a lot more predesigned Elementor template kits but at a little bit more subsidized price. This is because you can simply buy one template kit, and you don’t have to get a whole bunch of subscriptions for things that you may not need to use later.
You can filter through all categories and look for a specific template kit that you would want to use. (11:42)
For example if you are into weddings & photography, you have access to some of those pretty well-made wedding photography templates. Ie, if you buy the Riqa Wedding Elementor template kit you get access to 10 plus already made pages. (12:24)
This means that you’re not only getting one page or a landing page but you also get all the other pages and all you have to do is add them to your website pages, customize, and you are good to get started. It has pricing, services etc.
Now that you’ve been introduced to all these amazing design platforms, you can make this year your year of simplifying the way you do things by using these template kits to build faster and better results for your clients!
