(1) You will need to have WordPress and a core theme installed before starting. I highly recommend using the HELLO Elementor theme from Elementor, which you can download from the wordpress.org repository. It is free, light weight, super easy to use & works well with my template. You can also use my template with ANY theme, so if you have one you like there is NO need to change it.
(2) Make sure you have previously installed Elementor PRO plugin (if you want to use the built-in forms + styles) or the FREE version before starting and the Happy Addons for Elementor (FREE) plugin – links below!

The above does include an affiliate link. I do get a benefit if you choose to purchase through the link. I only recommend products I use myself and/or trust implicitly.
