WordPress has grown to become an incredibly popular website platform for both beginners and advanced users alike. Whether you need a storefront for your business or just a small personal blog to rant on, there are plenty of reasons to use WordPress and as it is increasingly popular – the support out there, is phenomenal. WordPress now powers over 30% of all websites out there – including this one!
One of those reasons is the popularity of page builders. Services like Divi and Elementor have grown increasingly popular and are now some of the most effective ways to turn your ideas into reality. In this article, we’ll be discussing a couple of the main advantages that you can expect to see when it comes to page builders.
1. They offer beautiful layout options
BUT, WordPress is somewhat limited when it comes to layouts. You’re often stuck with what you’re given and one of the simplest ways to increase the number of designs and layouts is to use a page builder. Even if you don’t know how to code beautiful pages or even use colors effectively, page builders can give you plenty of custom layout options that are simple to install and are a great way to flex your creativity.
2. You don’t need to use any code – (kinda)
One of the best things about page builders like Divi and Elementor is that they’re completely usable without you needing to understand a single line of code. You don’t need to learn any programming languages, nor do you have to type a single word. You can use the friendly interfaces to drag-and-drop your design ideas, resize elements as you see fit and rearrange them to your liking. Essentially, what you see with your layouts is what the end result will be, and most site builders support automatically changing the design to fit on mobile devices.
3. Cheaper than other alternatives
Hiring a professional web designer is a great idea if you have the funds, but most people would prefer to have a simple website for their needs that is more cost-effective. Page builders are far cheaper than hiring someone to make a website for you, and they’re also time-efficient since you don’t need to learn anything in order to make them work. You can simply sign up and start making your website with no delay.
Of course if you are looking to hire a developer for more complex websites, it’s a great idea to take a look here – It’s a Facebook group specifically set up for Divi Users and of course, WordPress users as all the experts in the group are also WordPress experts too.
4. Makes managing your website easy
Whether you’re adding simple little features like social sharing buttons or widgets, it’s easy to manage your website if you’re using a page builder. Instead of requiring you to install several smaller plugins, it’s possible to use a page builder to get all of this simple functionality at the push of a few buttons. You don’t need to worry about updating each plugin or learn how to use them individually–it’s all simple to manage with a page builder.
Page builders come with many advantages, but that’s not to say they’re the only option when it comes to making your own website. However, you’ll find that unless you have a very specific need for your WordPress site, a page builder is an acceptable option that you can depend on.
