ELEMENTOR REVIEW (Elementor vs BeaverBuilder)
Elementor is now more than just one of the best page builders...
The Elementor page builder can be used in any theme. Elementor has its own theme which you can download for free, The Hello theme. Elementor itself houses more than 300 ready-made demos from which you can start your work, that's as good as the best themes. You don't need another theme with Elementor. The own Hello theme is more than enough.
In this Elementor review we discuss the very latest improvements that make the theme/pagebuilder score in the top. Elementor only came on the market in 2016 and has already been installed on more than 8 million sites, which is of course noticeable. 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 clip below, it will probably give you a taste of how you can get started with the editor/page builder yourself. Here you can find all info about Elementor's Editor.
This brand new tool can be used as a dock on the right of the screen or can float anywhere in your worksheet. Simply right-click an element or block on your worksheet and select "Navigator" to open it. The Navigator significantly increases the enjoyment of work and the speed at which one can work. Watch here a video and more info about the Navigator.
ELEMENTOR SAVE WORK
Who wants to do the same task over and over again? Elementor allows you to save work blocks and reuse them on other pages, posts, and even other websites. That way you save a lot of time if we compare it with how people used to work. The animation below gives a reasonable idea of what to expect.
READY-TO-USE DEMO DESIGNS
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.
Similar to Divi there are plenty of 200+ layouts available for all possible niches. Think of corporate, web shops, the hotel industry, gyms, cafe, fashion, hosting, photography, architecture, lifestyle, travel and fashion. There are also many third parties that build beautiful layouts for Elementor. You can also use such a layout as a start for your work, but you will of course have extra costs. View here the complete library of layouts.
ELEMENTOR WOOCOMMERCE BUILDER
Elementor, like most top themes, is perfect for building webshops. Product pages and category pages of Woocommerce can be beautifully styled. In the past, quite a bit of HTML knowledge was needed for customizing shop pages, that has become a thing of the past. We assume you know Woocommerce, it is by far the most used shop plugin for Wordpress. Watch here a video and more info about the Woocommerce Builder.
ELEMENTOR REVISIONS EDITOR
Elementor, like other elite page builders, was less pleased with the revision editor included in Wordpress and decided to release its own improved version. I completely agree that the default Wordpress editor for revisions is worthless, that was always an eyesore when you had to put something back. Also Divi and Thrive have this tool. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor Revisions Editor.
ELEMENTOR REVIEW: MOBILE EDITING
Everything can be set separately with Elementor for mobile, tablet and desktop as you can see above. Of course Elementor is "out-of-the-box" responsive, but it is always nice to be able to make targeted adjustments for a certain device if necessary. However, all top themes and page builders also have this. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Mobile Editing.
We give a perfect score in our Elementor review here to the color editor for texts, which is practically as beautiful as in a PC software like Photoshop. According to Elementor themselves, they are currently the only one that has "pixel perfect design". You can use all possible colors out there and also create gradients with them. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Color Picker.
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. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Header-Footer Builder.

ELEMENTOR THEME ELEMENTS
The building blocks for the layout of your pages are the elements and Elementor offers very a lot of. Let's say practically everything has been thought of. Elementor even has pop-ups included as standard and very nice ones too, so forget about your pop-up plug-in from now on. You no longer need it. View here the complete info on all 90+ Elementor Widgets.
Beautiful pop-ups, easy to set up too, a wonderful tool. The top page builders copy everything from each other. The popups are perfect for call-to-action and conversion purposes. View here all info about Elementor's popups.
ELEMENTOR REVIEW: PRICING
The prices for Elementor can be found here in the image above. In terms of quality, Elementor is worth triple its money, especially if we compare it with other premium themes that offer much less and are also even more expensive. View the pricing page here. Sometimes there are discounts.

BEAVERBUILDER (Elementor vs Beaverbuilder)
In this Beaverbuilder review we take a look at why this page builder is so popular that it is used by more than a million people. From my own experience I already know that Beaverbuilder has one of the nicest and best support departments among page builders. You will be offered a solution for every problem that you might encounter live, by ticket or e-mail at lightning speed.
The Beaverbuilder page builder can be used in any theme, but also offers its own theme as the perfect theme to start with. The video below explains how you can make a good theme choice yourself. The best theme for Beaverbuilder for me is Astra Pro with many ready-made designs for the page builder already in it.
Just like most page builders, with Beaverbuilder rows and columns are the main building blocks for building your pages. For each row you create, you immediately specify how many columns it should contain. The same also applies to the modules, as with all good page builders you place the modules in the columns.
You have call-to-action buttons, timers, countdowns, photos, videos and all the standard material you are used to for styling your page. Everything goes through the front-end and it's just nice to work with Beaverbuilder, although it is a bit slower than with the Divibuilder for example.
Wonderful features are, for example, having global rows that apply site-wide. If you adjust this, it will change on all pages where you have such a row in use. So you can save your building blocks and reuse them later on other pages.
Apart from the many modules, Beaverbuilder gives the possibility to use 2 different types of ready-made templates, content pages and landing pages. Under the landing pages, you'll find templates for shop pages, landing pages, homepages, newsletter subscription pages, and upcoming pages.
As for the content pages, here you will have access to "About us" pages, Contact pages and Service pages. You can also create your own template and save it of course. You can also style these yourself with the Beaverbuilder Front-End Drag and Drop system.
Websites made with the Beaverbuilder have good SEO by default and have no CLS and LCP problems according to the standards of Google Core Web Vitals. The pages also have very fast loading times. These are all Google ranking factors that bring a higher turnover through better findability.
Beaverbuilder Desktop, Mobile and Tablet
Of course Beaverbuilder is 100% responsive, but that's not all. You can adjust the exact settings live in the editor for the display on all these different devices.
Beaverbuilder with WooCommerce
With Beaverbuilder you can build pretty cool webshops without any technical knowledge. That said, I mean it can't compete with purpose-built themes like Astra or Ocean-WP. What is of course a top solution, is to combine Beaverbuilder with one of these two themes. It works perfectly with both themes.
Beaverbuilder is always bought for an unlimited number of sites. The prices are determined by a number of extra features such as access to their theme and white labeling.
Web design companies often find it cool or useful to present their own logo in the backend instead of the Beaverbuilder logo. Thus, you do not see that you are dealing with Beaverbuilder, but the software seems to have been built by the company itself. Other nice features of the page builder are Google fonts, SEO optimized, header and footer builders, great forum and support.
My advice regarding Elementor vs Beaverbuilder
First of all, thank you for reading my Elementor vs Beaverbuilder comparison to the end. Elementor has gotten the total installs from 2 to 4 million in the last year and is on the rise. Beaverbuilder has been around for much longer and now has more than a million users. It is mainly a matter of taste which page builder one prefers to work with, I prefer Elementor.
