    I’ve been using Beaver Builder exclusively for all my site builds for about 4 years now, and have only used Elementor a handful of times, so my experiential bias will probably show a bit. 😉

    From what I’ve seen, Elementor is more popular with the DIY crowd. It’s more cost efficient for someone who is only building a single site, whereas BB comes with a higher price tag and a lot of the addons are paid as well, and this can quickly add up.

    I find Elementor to be less user friendly though. The interface is clunky and editing the elements can be challenging at times. I get WAY more “how do I do…” calls from clients using Elementor than I do for BB. Comparatively, BB’s interface is intuitive and easy to use.

    Historically, I’ve disliked the slow rate of updates to the base, but BB seems to be rolling out a lot of new features quite often lately.

    Like others have said, Elementor seems to be way more flash than substance. In my experience, the more elements you add, the slower the page load time, which has been a huge frustration for a lot of my clients. BB doesn’t seem to have that problem. It just works right out of the box.

    In the end, BB is always going to get my vote.

  1. Depends on your objectives-Beaver is good for hard hitting commercial purposes, Elementor is the more creative, flexible editing tool which can be a more versatile choice I have found. It really will depend on what you intend to build, can you provide any more details?

  2. I’ve been very happy with Beaver Builder. A developer I like uses it to simplify her life,so I followed in her footsteps. A number of people have warned against Divi. It uses lots and lots of short codes and if you stop using Divi, your site will fall apart and need to be rebuilt. With Beaver, it will look largely the same.
