Decide the landing page elements
Before designing pour page we need to choose the elements what we includes in our page. Our landing page includes:

- Contact Us
Step 1 : Setup color, color picker and fonts
Initially we need to setup our editor before design our landing page. We need to set the primary and secondary color so when we add any widgets our default color will automatically set. Same thing for default fonts and some other default settings. This will help us to access the global setting quickly.
Step 2 : Top Section
Here in this section we will include :
- beautiful background image
- A heading that describe our brand properly
- Some text about what we do
- A button with a link of service page or other important page of our website
At first we create our section by clicking on the “+” icon.
When we click on the “+” icon then a structure option will show up. You need to choose the structure of our section. We can select the column and their structure from this structure option. For our top page you choose the structure by clicking on it.
Our section is created. It will look like this. If you want to use the full width then just click on the six dot option and then go to the left dashboard and from the Content width drop-down menu select Full Width and turn on the Stretch Section option on.

You can also set the attachment of the background as fixed or scroll. If you fixed the background , when you scroll you image will fixed and the page scroll. But if you select the background scroll, then the image will also scroll with the page.
From the background overlay option we can add color gradient and increase or less the opacity to make our background more attractive .
You can easily see the difference between the two background. Style your background as you want to make it more beautiful
Add heading and text
We set our background properly now the next step is to add a heading about our brand and some description. Elementor offer you so many blocks. You can see all the block in the left dashboard. Before adding our heading we just create a inner section in our section. To create inner section just drag the inner section block and drop it into the section. Now to add our heading we need to drag the heading block and drop it into the inner section. You can set the size, HTML tag and alignment from the option too.
Now click on the Style tab to style our heading. You can set our text color, text shadow, typography, line height, letter spacing and many more options are available.
Our heading is ready now it’s time to add a description. To add description select the Text Editor block drag it and drop it into the inner section. And to add a Button just use the button block. We can style our text editor and button as the same way we edit our heading.

For the button there are some extra options available. From the content tab you can set the button type, add text, link and alignment.
From the style tab you can set the button typography, text shadow and set the hover option.
