Looking for Page Builder for Wordpress

by turfy
43 replies
Hey gurus,

I need some recommendation from you.

Have been using InstaBuilder2 for a while and love the simplicity to make a website compliant to mobile and also desktop.

I do noticed that the static HTML page generated by IB2 are not loading fast enough and sometimes it takes more than 1 minute to get the entire site loaded.

Just curious, what page builder software you are using to create your landing page ?

Trying to look for alternative.

Thanks ...

  • About a year ago I switched most page building tasks to the Divi builder.

    It's not perfect but the options and possibilities of what you can do are basically unlimited.

    Unlike some of the other page builders, they are constantly adding new features and making fixes/improvements. They are very active.

    One area that I haven't used it for is building a squeeze type page just because we get opt-ins in other ways.

    Thanks Mark... I read some of the reviews and it seems a solid tool.

    Is there any default template where I can just customize ?

    Can't find anything listed here.

    • Yes. In the builder there are 29 complete site layouts in various markets. For example, there's one for an auto repair shop, one for a business consultant, one for a design agency, etc.

      Within those site layouts, they have multiple pages. For example, home/landing page, coming soon page, pricing page, about us, etc.

      You can see some of the layouts they provide by going to their blog. That's where they are all announced.

    If you are looking for a great site builder for Wordpress I highly suggest LiveComposer. It's definitely worth checking out and allows you to customize every aspect of your pages in a clear responsive way.

    Plus it loads fast and is easy to edit for any platform.

    Hope this helps.

    I am going to share my findings with everyone. I just got it to work.

    Using a new antivirus software and without my knowledge, it injected a line of code in the webpage I created using IB2.
    That line of code basically SLOW down everything. I edit the HTML file and remove that script. The speed is back to normal now.

    At the same time, I will check your recommendation to look for more new website design creation ideas. Thanks !

      I second that. Not perfect, but better than anything I have used and I've tried a bunch.

      I also build complete sites with Profit Builder, but you need to screw-up your courage to attempt that. It's powerful, but buggy. I have learned work-arounds for almost all of the issues. I think I like it so much because I know it so well. :-)

    • Yep, Thrive Architect is great for quickly building landing pages. It's pretty intuitive. Their team is focused on conversions, which means all coding is done really well. I've used Divi Builder and WP Bakery, but prefer Thrive Architect for overall quality.

      Plus, they're always updating the software and making it even better. It's the first plugin I install when I'm working on a new WP site.

    I prefer elementor and visual composer. So far they have been utilized by me to a great extent. I shall recommend it to you. Give it a try.

      Optimizepress (OP) is "upgrading" again to OP3. Last time they did that OP1 to OP2 it sucked, webpages didn't transfer, it didn't work, it looked like crap, non-functional pages, I don't think anybody was happy.
      I'm done with OP looking for something new.

    It kind of depends on what kind of pages you need to build and whether you want to work from your WordPress site or if you're willing to use a cloud (SAAS) platform.

    Divi is awesome for setting up nice pages and I've found it pretty easy to use. I had some problems with it at first though because it is very picky in terms of what hosting it works with. In the end, I settled on using an older version of Divi because the newer version required me to make a series of tweaks to my hosting etc.

    Anyway, Divi doesn't have a way to do 2 step optins, for example, which is kind of a bummer.

    Thrive is great too...but the pricing is a lot different now than when I started using it! Not sure I would pay what they charge for it now.

    Also, Instabuilder is still the only plugins out there that makes it so you can export to HTML (which is great if you're selling a DFY website with your product).

    I am yet to find a good plugin that offers the same level of page building (for marketing/funnels/sales) as Cloud / SAAS platforms like clickfunnels or leadpages.

    Anyway, I'm following this because it will be interesting to see if someone knows of something new.

    It's strange no one mentions Enfold theme with it's super simple but highly effective page builder.

    It's fast (both from frontend and backend), no need for any kind of coding skills, and flexible. I've built more than 20 completely different sites with it.

    Also, how about Page builder by SiteOrigin?

    If you are looking for user-friendly page builder then I would suggest you to go with Visual Composer. VC is very user friendly and ease to handle where any naive user can easily build their website within less number of time.

    Hi, Ive been using WP for over six years years I have tried a few page builders in that time. Some good, others not so good. You may have to do a little research and experimentation to find one that really fits your specific needs. One thing to look for is one that is easy to use, has plenty of documentation and tuts on how to use and strong user support. One more thing look for a software or plugin that has a strong brand. Right now I am trying out Elementor Page Builder. The free version is good, pretty easy to use and has a lot of page elements for creating very nice looking web pages. It's worth a look.

    As a professional WordPress websites developer i would suggest you Visual composer. VC is one of the most popular WordPress plugin and you can easily customise your Landing page without knowing a single line of code. I use visual composer because it's update every month and every time it's bring something new.

    Hey turfy,

    Try the Elementor page builder. It's fast and has a nice set of features. You can come up with high-converting landing pages in just a few minutes with this plugin. There are lots of impressive landing page templates out there for Elementor as well.

    The other page builders I would recommend are Divi and definitely Thrive Themes. All these are great and will help you create the landing pages you want.

    I would look into Elementor. It's newer than that others, but has been growing in popularity and really good.

    I have tried many PageBuilders over the years and I have to tell you some of them look good until you look under the hood them you see a tangled web of shortcodes that no longer work if you want to move to another PageBuilder - VC is the worst for this.
    My top 2 of all time are;

    1. BeaverBuilder - coupled with Ultimate AddOn for BB
    2. ThriveArchitect (this used to be my #1 Until BB came along)

    LayersWP also looks like a good candidate

    Both BeaverBuilder and Layers have a lite version you can download from Plugins Repository

    I've used loads of page builders over the years ranging from

    Click funnels
    lead pages
    optimised press

    However I think you should always be in control of your pages and use WordPress in other words a site your hosting.

    I recently moved all of my pages out of click funnels and into a WordPress site.

    After much experimentation and advice from lots of people I settled on thrive architect.

    I'm really happy with the results i am getting, and all the pages are mobile optimised.

    I used and I still use Instabuilder2. I looked for and tried alternatives, but I still find the easiest to use IB2. Thrive themes is also great but not so easy to use.

    Hey there.
    I have been developing websites and marketing pages for clients. So i think you should try
    Thrive page builder , it's very marketing theme tool. You can get alot of templates focused on lead generation and sales .

    For building websites i suggest you to have a look at elementor pro and divi. Elementor pro > Divi for me atleast . You can create any pages using elementor if you know basic layout need. Easily you can build .

    I have used igloo page builder as well, it's a great tool as well.

      Hi there. Like many other people I found Wordpress difficult after using conventional site builders. I asked around amongst many of my marketing friends and many were using the Thrive Themes package. I have the full package which costs around £300 a year (think that's about $365 isn't it). It's fantastic. You can make amazing sites, their constantly updated tutorials are first class and most of all for people like me it's easy to use. Try them out you won't be disappointed.
