Elementor vs Avada comparison [2021]

Elementor vs Avada

ELEMENTOR vs AVADA

Here we compare 2 toppers from the WP-theme world!

Two very good choices for creating a new website: the elite page builder Elementor, vs Avada, the best-selling theme on ThemeForest.

Whether you want to create a shop, a blog, a private or company website, these two systems can do it all. Avada has been sold 701,000 times and Elementor has been installed on nearly 5 million websites. One is officially a theme, the other a page builder. However, with Avada you do not have to buy a page builder, and with Elementor you do not have to buy themes, so these systems can certainly be compared and we will now do that.

I start with Elementor but this is a random choice and does not automatically mean that it would be better.

ELEMENTOR REVIEW (Elementor vs Avada)

Elementor review


Is Elementor no theme, or is it? The Elementor page builder can be used in any theme, and will always be compatible. Elementor has its own theme which you can download for free, The Hello theme. It itself houses more than 300 ready-made demos from which you can start your work, which is as good as a theme. With Elementor you don't need another theme, they would just call it a theme that is clearer.

This applies to the PRO version because the free version does not have all of that. In this Elementor review we discuss the very latest improvements that make the theme / page builder score in the top. Elementor only came on the market in 2016 and is already installed on more than 4 million sites, which of course stands out. This is not just a page builder but a tuned drag & drop tool to build websites very quickly and easily.

Elementor Pagebuilder review

Watch the video below, this gives you a good idea how you can get started with the editor / page builder yourself.


Elementor Navigator review

This brand-new tool can be used as a dock on the right-hand side of the screen or floating anywhere in your worksheet. Simply click something on your worksheet with your right mouse button and choose "Navigator" to open it. Or watch the video below, which is easier to understand. The Navigator is an extension of the page builder that you work with.


Elementor saves your work

Who always wants to perform the same task again? With Elementor you can save work blocks and reuse them on other pages, posts and even other websites. That way you save a sea of time if we compare that with how people used to work. The animation below gives a reasonable picture of what you can expect.


Ready-to-install Designs

Elementor demo-designs


In this Elementor review we discuss the top features of the Elementor page builder. The beautiful demo designs are certainly part of this. Earlier I told you that Elementor is basically just a theme because of the wide choice of demo material that you can use as the start for your website.

Just like with DIVI there are layouts available for all possible niches. Think of corporate, web shops, the hotel industry, gyms, café, fashion, hosting, photography, architecture, lifestyle, travel and fashion. There are many third parties that build beautiful themes for Elementor. You can also use such a theme as a start for your work, but you will of course have extra costs.

Elementor & Woocommerce

Elementor Woocommerce


Elementor is just like the other top themes perfect for building web shops. Product pages and category pages from Woocommerce can be styled beautifully. It always needed quite a bit of HTML knowledge to adjust shop pages, that has become a thing of the past. We assume that you are familiar with Woocommerce, it is by far the most used shop plug-in for Wordpress.

Elementor revision editor

revision editor


Elementor, like other elite page builders, was less enthusiastic about the revision editor in Wordpress and decided to release its own improved version. I fully agree with them that the standard Wordpress editor for revisions is worthless, that was always a thorn in the eye if you had to put something back. Also Divi and Thrive Architect got this great tool.

Elementor Pagebuilder review: Responsiveness

Elementor responsive


Everything can be set separately with Elementor for mobile, tablet and desktop as you can see above. Elementor is of course "out-of-the-box" responsive but it is always nice to be able to make targeted adjustments for a certain device if needed. All top themes and page builders, however, also have this.

Elementor color range

Elementor color combinations


We give a perfect score in our Elementor review here to the color editor for texts, which is practically just as beautiful as in a PC software like Photoshop. According to Elementor itself, they are currently the only one with "pixel perfect design". You can use all possible colors that are available and also create gradients with it.

Elementor Header & Footer

Total control over all headers and footers within your website. All elite page builders can do this but it is an important tool to have in a theme.

The building blocks for the layout of your pages are the elements and Elementor offers a lot of them. Let's say practically everything has been thought of. Elementor even has pop-ups as standard and also very nice ones, so from now on forget your pop-up plug-in. You no longer need it.

Elementor Pop-Ups


Beautiful pop-ups, easy to set up too, a wonderful tool. Currently Divi does not have this but I expect that it will not last long. The top page builders copy everything from each other. The pop-ups are perfect for call-to-action and conversion purposes.

Elementor review: Pricing

Elementor pricing


The prices for Elementor can be found here in the image above. In terms of quality, Elementor is worth three times its money, especially if we compare that with other premium themes that offer much less and are even more expensive.

AVADA REVIEW (Elementor vs Avada)

Avada Theme review


Let's continue this Avada vs Elementor test with Avada, we are going to take a look at why the theme is so popular. Avada 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 701.000 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.

AVADA WEBSHOPS

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.


Avada Theme review webshops


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'S MEGAMENU

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'S SUPPORT

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 [2021] 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 VS ELEMENTOR PRICE/EVALUATION

It is a difficult choice Avada or Elementor, both products are high quality. Avada contains the FusionBuilder, a good page builder but of course Elementor PRO works much better. Elementor is 10 dollars cheaper and offers a year of support where Avada only gives half a year. Both have a lot of great demos that can be imported quickly. I personally prefer to work with Elementor, but the choice is yours. You will have a lot of fun with both, no matter which one you choose.

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.
