My Final Thoughts
Elementor Pro is really a great tool for WordPress post and page builder. It is easier to use with so many predefined component tool like an alert box, slide, style box, Price box and many more.
Compared to thrive Architect, it is easy to work with. You do not need to build everything from scratch. You can drag and drop most of the components.
It has limited integration with email services like MailChimp, Convertkit, and Getresponse whereas Thrive Architect has integration with so almost all email services. Maybe we will see some more integration soon for Elementor Pro.
Overall, I highly recommend Elementor Pro for all beginners and pro blogger to create attractive content. Please do not forget to share your thoughts.
