and finally, have you ever had a client show your website and ask you to build something very similar to it happens all the time right well 10Web’s new feature uses ai to detect and copy any website structure and design now let’s move on to the second builder on our list the Oxygen builder launched in 2016.
Oxygen Page Builder
Oxygen is very feature-reached so if you’re looking to build a unique and a complex website without writing a single line of code Oxygen is definitely the one for you but of course, the tremendous amount of control and flexibility that oxygen provides has a downside as well it’s not exactly the easiest builder to use especially if you’re not a very tech-savvy person but of course if you’re ready to stick around and learn you can easily build very beautiful websites that also produce very clean and concise code which is very important for your website speed and SEO the builder also includes a big library of responsive design sets you can use to build your clients websites on but be careful because not all of them are compatible with all of the website themes out there also, Oxygen is pretty expensive considering the market of builders in its current state. you pay 99 to 169 dollars for lifetime use so if you do decide on it make sure that you’ll be using the full capacity of this tool and in short, Oxygen is for the developers who can and want to manage the whole complexity of website building without using much code the next one is Site Origin this drag-and-drop builder is completely free and requires no coding whatsoever.
It’s compatible with all themes and is mobile responsive and it also offers quite a range of tools and templates for a great website design experience another great thing about it is that it’s lightweight and is SEO optimized Site Origin’s free version includes basically all the features you need the only issue here might be that this truly great builder might still struggle to compete with other similar builders that offer slightly better visuals and price overall Site Origin builder is a fantastic free tool if you’re trying to create a website for yourself or your company but if your agency is trying to showcase a fuller range of styles and effects then go for something more sophisticated the third builder on our list is Visual Composer which is a great option for complete beginners who want an effortless front-end page design experience the builder is compatible with all themes and has integrations with a lot of popular WordPress tools such as google fonts and Yoast SEO.
And there is also a whole bunch of useful templates you can customize by adding carousels slideshows backgrounds and so much more the prices start at 59. for one single website which is not that bad but you can definitely get more for that price as we mentioned earlier to sum it up Visual Composer builder is a great place to start but if you’re looking to upgrade your website to something more advanced then keep on looking the next option for you is Beaver a builder that’s been especially rapidly improving and expanding its features recently this one is developer-friendly it produces a clean coat and as it belongs to a reputable company it also provides high-quality support and regular updates
Divi Page Builder
One major con of beaver is the cost-value ratio in terms of design the agency plan which includes white labeling and premium themes and modules comes at 399 dollars which is quite a lot considering that the Beavers premium themes can’t really compare to the premium themes of other providers and the last drag-and-drop builder on our list is divi by elegant themes this builder’s interface is very unique it’s all floaty buttons and pop-ups but while a lot of people will be big fans of it
it will definitely take some time to get used to it Divi builder has a huge range of templates you can choose from to be precise 316 pre-built templates in 40 different layout packs your clients will definitely appreciate this huge area of design options
and Divi also has some additional options that are pretty cool like a b testing there’s a very fast Divi theme
and of course, the option to create your own theme a possible disadvantage here is the cost because Divi builder comes as part of the 89 elegant themes membership which is quite a lot if you compare it to 10Web at 10 per website rate and another disadvantage here is that this builder is shortcode based which means if you ever get to delete it it will leave behind some shortcode which you will then have to delete yourself again Divi is a great option but it’s best for a single website owner and not an agency which would rather have a wider range of features and services at a lower price so what’s the conclusion well if you want to have the whole agency toolkit and still save up then go for 10Web and if you’re looking to create something unique and complex and are ready to spend over a hundred bucks on it
then Oxygen, Beaver, and Divi are the best choices for you
and in case you just want to get the basic toolkit and layouts
Then choose Visual Composer and Site Origin while we’re on the subject don’t forget to check out 10Web’s builder templates and other features including the speed optimizer that will get your clients website an instant page speed score of 95 plus absolutely for free for two weeks just follow the link in the description no risks or credit cards involved it’s just a fantasy.
