Fusion-Builder vs BeaverBuilder



FUSION-BUILDER (BeaverBuilder vs Fusion-Builder)

Fusion-Builder is included by default in the beloved Avada-Theme...

Fusion-Builder review


The Fusion-Builder has been around for years in the Avada Theme. Although the page builder would certainly be suitable for use as a separate plugin in other themes, that has still not happened. I don't think the contracts they have with Envato allow that though the Fusion Builder could be sold as a plugin through that same marketplace. Well, if you want to work with the Fusion-Builder you need the Avada Theme.

FUSION-BUILDER PAGEBUILDER/EDITOR

The Fusion builder is a responsive front-end page builder. The page builder works accurately, quickly and well, there is nothing else to say about it. In their own words, Fusion-Builder is the best Front-end Editor. I doubt that very much because in the first place they all say that but I have experience with practically all top page builders and certainly know better ones. I do want to say right away that Fusion-Builder is definitely participating in the top.

FUSION-BUILDER REVIEW: ELEMENTS

The Fusion-Builder counts all together 70+ widgets (also called elements). This is a large number because popular page builders like UX-Builder and Brizy only offer around 45+. I show some of these widgets below, if you want to see them all go to this page.

FUSION-BUILDER'S EDITOR

Fusion-Builder is an inline text editor which means you can write directly on the page wherever you want as shown below. Nowadays all top page builders have such a text editor, but Fusion-Builder also has what it takes to keep up with the top.

FUSION-BUILDER MOBILE EDITING

Fusion-Builder can be used to work on websites via mobile. Despite everything working properly, I would never do this because it is very inconvenient compared to working via desktop. An exception would be if I was on the road and suddenly noticed errors in an important site. All top page builders can do this by the way.

FUSION-BUILDER: TEMPLATES LIBRARY

We are talking about a library of over 120+ pre-processed sections and elements. In addition, Avada also offers 85+ complete demo websites. This is something that both good themes and page builders have in their arsenal these days. However, the numbers at Avada are quite large.

FUSION-BUILDER: SPEED

It is a bit more difficult to calculate speed with page builders than with themes. What we can do here is check the speed of the Fusion builders theme website. The results of this test at GtMetrix are below. These are very good numbers which means to me that their programmers know a lot about optimizing for speed.

FUSION-BUILDER & WOOCOMMERCE

Like the best-selling page builders like Elementor Fusion-Builder has a Theme Builder. Allows you to customize parts of the layout that should look the same on all pages. This includes the footer, the header and any additional sections that you want to see on all pages.



FUSION-BUILDER & AVADA THEME

Of course, as mentioned before, you get the Fusion-Builder in the Avada Theme. Not me personally, but there are quite a few people who think that it is one of the best Wordpress themes. It must be said that the theme is certainly not bad and very versatile. It offers a dashboard with maybe 1000 settings, pop ups, everything can be customized, most things can be styled by yourself such as search pages, 404 pages, footers, headers, and portfolio post layouts. If you work with the Fusion-Builder, you automatically have all of that included. Read all about the Avada Theme here.

FUSION-BUILDER REVIEW CONCLUSION

Despite the fact that the page builder is quite okay, the price is very high, namely 60 dollars per website on which you want to install it. That is unfortunately the case with everything that is sold through Themeforest. Definitely recommended, but expensive and of course there are better pagebuilders than Fusion.

BEAVERBUILDER (Elementor vs BeaverBuilder)

BeaverBuilder is one of the oldest good page builders...

Beaverbuilder Page Builder Review


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.


Building Blocks

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.

Premade templates

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.


Beaverbuilder review

Beaverbuilder SEO

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 pricing

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.

Beaverbuilder Whitelabeling

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.

FUSION BUILDER VERSUS BEAVERBUILDER CONCLUSION

Thanks for reading my Fusion Builder vs BeaverBuilder comparison to the end. The BeaverBuilder is a separate plugin and can be used in any theme, which is a big advantage over the Fusion builder, which can only be used in Avada. Fusion, on the other hand, has more settings, elements and functions. I would definitely recommend Beaverbuilder for complete beginners and also for people who don't want to spend too much. Beaverbuilder can be used on an unlimited number of sites, FusionBuilder only on 1.
