Avada vs Be-Theme theme-comparison [01-2021]
The Be-Theme vs Astra, both of these themes are bestsellers on the Themeforest marketplace where they also receive a very good rating. Both themes have a well-functioning page builder that is unfortunately of their own making and therefore cannot compete with the best page builders out there. However, the themes are compatible with any page builder.
AVADA THEME (Be-Theme vs Avada)
We start in this Avada vs Be-Theme comparison with the Avada Theme which does not automatically mean it would be better. We are going to take a look at why the theme is so popular. It has been in the first place in the list of best-selling products and themes in the equally popular marketplace for 6 years Themeforest which sells Wordpress material. The theme has been sold more than 645.000 times, which is close to the most popular theme there is, the Divi Theme.
Not only was the theme sold frequently, it also has one of the best ratings on Themeforest. Of the 23,200 people who gave a rating, the average is 4.76 out of 5, which is very high. This theme is multipurpose, which means that it is suitable for any type of website. So you can build webshop, corporate websites, blog, showcases and so on. Just what you want. We are going to review all the top aspects of Avada and the improvements of Avada since the brand new version 6.2 one by one.
Webshops are very popular nowadays and the number of shops in the internet is increasing rapidly. No wonder a theme like Avada is completely prepared for building shops. In recent years, both laymen and professionals have mainly built their shops with Woocommerce. Avada works perfectly with Woocommerce and all known Woocommerce plugins.
You can display up to six columns of products on the category pages. While writing this Avada Theme review, I was particularly impressed by all the special options Avada offers for Woocommerce such as product sliders and product carousels, quickview, and extensive search functions. This is no coincidence either, the Avada and Woocommerce teams work closely together.
AVADA'S FUSION BUILDER
In their own words, the best page builder out there, but here I have to protest. The Fusion Builder is a very good page builder but at least in the ranking below the top 3 page builders which are the Divi Builder, Elementor and Thrive Architect. But as mentioned, the Fusion Builder is of course a very nice tool to build a website with.
Fusion Builder is a drag and drop front-end page builder with great features such as being able to save layouts for reuse elsewhere. More than 60 different elements that can be drawn into your design such as buttons, sliders, images, titles, in short too many to mention. Everything you may need is there. You can also use all types of shortcodes in the page builder. If you want to know more about the Fusion Builder or rather see the page builder in action, watch the short video below.
AVADA'S FOOTER BUILDER
With Avada you can design your own footers with complete freedom as shown in the before-after image below. The same goes for your 404 pages and search pages.
AVADA'S DEMO IMPORTER
Avada lets you import beautiful demos into your website with a few simple clicks. You have a ready-made website to start with. Customize the logo, photos and post your own text. In this way, people build a website much faster than starting with a clean slate. Avada offers 66 complete website demos. Website demos should not be confused with page demos. Some themes have hundreds of them, but they are not complete sites, but pages.
AVADA THEME REVIEW: SETTINGS
Avada has separate settings for the website as a whole and for pages. This ensures that everything remains very clear. The options panels come very handy with a search function so that one does not have to search endlessly for a certain option as was often the case in the past and still with other themes. The Avada options are so complete that you can really set everything up your own way. Over the years, feed has obviously not been overlooked.
Avada offers you one of the best mega menus out there. You do not need to buy and install additional plugins for this. Widgets such as video, forms and images can be used in the menu. Choose the number of columns up to a maximum of six. Adjustable width, so full width or a number of pixels which you set yourself. The width of each column can also be set separately. In addition to menu items, you can store icons (small images).
Avada employs no less than 20 people who are fully committed to providing support. These are extremely professional people with years of experience in this field. If you need help, you never have to wait long for a good answer and support.
AVADA THEME REVIEW: MY OPINION
My conclusion for this Avada Theme review for  is that it is a great theme. It is really possible to create any type of website, it cannot be much more multifunctional. The theme builder works pleasantly and quickly. Everything is very clear and speaks for itself. This theme is very suitable for people without experience, but can also be used by professionals. I have not come across much that can be considered a shortcoming. An A-B test tool could be added and have pop-ups like a few other top themes like Divi. However, these are certainly not necessary functions.
AVADA THEME REVIEW: PRICING
The Avada theme costs $ 60, which seems like a great price. The fact is, if you put $ 30 on it, you will have the Divi Theme which is even better. Avada has a license for only 1 website, you can use Divi on as many sites as you want.
A better alternative is the best-selling theme in the world, the Divi Theme. If we compare the prices, they immediately receive support for a year. You will not only receive a theme, but a membership that includes 86 other premium themes and many plug-ins. If you want to spend a little more money, you immediately have lifelong support there, cost $ 249. Sometimes cheaper when they have offers. If in doubt, read our Divi Theme review, or check out the real Divi website right away.
BE-THEME THEME (Be-Theme vs Avada)
In this Be Theme review we pay attention to the pros and cons of this great theme. What is immediately striking is that the design is fairly simple but very stylish. As soon as people start working with the theme, they immediately realize that adjusting the theme is much easier than is the case with many other premium themes. The many functions of the theme will be examined in the remainder of this review.
Be Theme review lay-out
The Be Theme comes with no less than 600+ different demo websites that can be installed with one click. You will find several suitable themes for each niche from which you can start building your own house style. As a web designer I quickly find a suitable layout for websites that I build for clients with the Be Theme.
A few demo-examples
To be honest, I have to say that the Be Theme is perfect for creating a cool site that works really well, but for a real top website where they want to pay a lot of attention and make a great impression ... it is better to use a different premium theme. Reviews for such themes can be found in our overview of top themes for . The Be Theme is perfect for the beginner!
The developer of the BeTheme is Muffingroup, an elite seller on Themeforest with around 15 products on sale, the most are themes. Muffingroup brought in many valuations such as recommended author, monthly bestseller, power elite author and weekly bestseller. You can imagine that they deliver a solid product. The Be Theme has an average rating of 4.62 which is very high. The theme has been sold 175,000 times since 2014.
Muffin Builder, a drag & drop pagebuilder
The Be Theme has the Muffin Builder built in to quickly make adjustments to your site. The Muffin Builder is a drag & drop page builder that is more than satisfactory and has all the necessary options. Choose one of the 600+ layouts and add items to your pages, it works easily and very well.
Be Theme review: WP Bakery Pagebuilder
Instead of using the Muffin Builder, use the WP Bakery pagebuilder, a page builder with more fame then this is possible, this is also supplied in the Be Theme. The choice is yours. This page builder also works with drag & drop and is also a great tool to be able to build beautiful pages with great freedom and to purchase them separately, you have lost no less than $ 64. Personally, this is one of my favorite page builder because it features practically all the top themes and there are many add-ons for it.
New: Elementor compatibility
Since 2021, the BeTheme has also been equipped with Elementor, and with quite a few extra widgets as shown below.
Video en Parallax Backgrounds
The BeTheme supports the use of parallax backgrounds that will leave a pleasant impression for your site with your audience. Full width and video backgrounds are also possible. Together with a decent styled page you can give your website a professional look in this way. During the writing of this BeTheme review, this kawlity of the theme quickly stood out.
20+ different header styles
The Be Theme contains 20+ standard header styles that you can use this way. The logo can be placed in multiple places together with the menu. Normally a menu is at the top but you can also use a left or right menu. The headers can be adjusted as much as you want in the Be Theme. Everything can also be adjusted in terms of fonts, font sizes and colors. The Be Theme allows different headers and even logos per page.
A short code can be generated for practically all functions in the theme. You can then use this to integrate these functions into every page, post or widget.
The Be Theme also offers you the following options: 600+ different fonts, custom Widgets, Revolution Slider, WooCommerce Ready, RTL support, Mega Menu, visual icon selector, unlimited sidebars, Bonus Premium Plug-ins, maintenance mode, Google Maps Styles, BuddyPress Ready, Styles for ContactForm7 and Gravity Forms.
Compatible with WPML
Ready for translation with WPML with which you can create multilingual websites.
Be-Theme vs Avada conclusion
First of all, thank you for reading this Be-Theme vs Avada comparison to the end. The Be-Theme excels in its huge number of demo designs for every niche and that is very practical for many web designers who can assemble any type of website so quickly. With the BeTheme and also Avada you have to buy a separate license for each website of yours for full price. Better take a theme like Astra Pro or Divi which are also better themes. When we talk about quality, one is much better off with Astra or Divi. The designs are nicer and more professional, especially for shops. The Be-Theme has its own page builder in it, which works well, but of course we prefer Elementor which is in Astra. It is definitely recommended to take Elementor Pro if you can spare some money. Astra Pro + Elementor Pro is a well-oiled machine for creating beautiful websites quickly.
