looking for some best elementor pro alternatives? 

Here I listed down some best premium and free elementor pagebuilder alternatives. my personal favorite alternatives are thrive architect and beaver builder.

Best Elementor Alternatives

Before checkout elementor alternatives, take a quick look on my two favorite themes. and why I recommend these two theme to everyone. 

Best Page Builder Friendly Themes

Astra Pro
GeneratePress Pro

Why I choose these two themes ? 

Both of these two themes are highly customizable. From blog header to blog footer every portion you can edit or customize in this theme. And a page builder with these two theme is just icing on cake. 

Using pagebuilder you can set header and footer different on different page. It’s just an example, using their custom layout and hooks you can design your theme as you want. 

Page builders that’s are generally use with astra pro and GeneratePress pro are Thrive Architect, Elementor and Beaver Builder.

Note – Both Astra and GeneratePress themes are available in wordpress directory for free. But in FREE version you will not get access of custom layout, Header and footer customization section, hooks, pre build templates and many more.

Thrive Architect

Thrive architect is one of my favorite pagebuilder among all others page builder. Even I use thrive architect most of site. Recently I move some of my site from thrive architect to elementor pro. because of some special features that I missed in my architect plugin. Don’t forget to read my thrive architect vs elementor comparison. 

But still thrive architect has some features that you might miss on elementor pro. Its purely depends on your requirements. 

I have been using thirve architect ( aka thrive content builder) from 2015 and I can cleary says thrive architect plugin is best when you want to create sales page, conversion focus page or lead generation page.

WPBakery Page Builder ( Formerly Visual Composer)

If elementor is the most used free page builder then wp bakery page builder is the most used premium page builder. They claim more than 2 million + websites are powered by wp bakery page builder where 300k+ direct sale from codecanyon. and huge no of available premium addons in themeforest market make this plugin ultimate page builder. 

Using wp bakery page builder you can design your blog from frontend or backend ( back end means in wordpress dashboard). But due to huge no of widgets and heavy customization options newbies can trouble to find their needed design. 

I give this plugin 90% rating because of its complicated design interference and lack of designing option in wp bakery page builder plugin ( with wp bakery page builder plugin you have to buy some other addons to get complete customization ability). 

WP Bakery Page Builder Plugin Features

  • If you buy addons - Then customization is limitless.
  • huge predesign template and blocks.
