Website Builder Tools: Finding the Right and Using it to Full Potential

            Website building tools have been around for
quite a few years. During that time most have become more powerful, flexible,
and efficient. The past year has witnessed some dramatic improvements in
website-building technology.

These improvements have been in response to technological advances in general. We talk feature advances in real-time front-end design and faster page loading. Also, search engine optimization analytics, mobile-friendly sites, and more.

Most of the top builders, like
those described here, are easy to work with. They are far more capable of
allowing web designers to transform their ideas into realities – 100%.

We’re certain that at least one of
the 7 top page/website builders presented here will meet your needs.

1. Elementor

          Don’t
have time to find the best website builder on the market? Skip Google search
and go straight to Elementor, easily the #1 WordPress page builder out there
today.

With more than 2 million worldwide
installs, Elementor’s popularity rapidly rose in the brief time it has been
around. Elementor may well be the most efficient website building tool
available.

It has successfully turned page
building into an intuitive visual drag and drop, i.e., WYSIWYG. Every one of
its design elements is customizable, and code-free – though you can extend its
use with coding if you wish.

What’s more, it’s not subject to
those pesky theme constraints and limitations that slow down the design
process. If you can visualize it, you can build it by working your magic with
the power of the design panel. Build your own headers & footers, create
dynamic content, integrate WordPress custom fields, design a blog piece by
piece, add popups, parallax, much more.

It’s a web designers’ playground.

2. Mobirise
Website Builder

          Mobirise is a drag and
drop tool that’s easy to learn and simple to operate. The fact that it’s an
offline tool provides some additional advantages. You have complete control
over how you use it, you’re not tied to any platform, and you can host your
site anywhere.

A host of attractive and modern-looking website blocks and templates
(more than 1,500 in all) together with Mobirise’s huge library of Google fonts,
icons, and 500,000 free images guarantees you can build virtually any website
you can visualize without any need for coding.

Since this builder is based on the latest Google AMP/Bootstrap 4
framework, the sites you create will be sneaky-fast and 100% mobile friendly;
just like the more than 1.5 million sites that have already be build using
Mobirise.

More good news: Mobirise is free for both personal and commercial use.

3. Portfoliobox

           Portfoliobox is not theme-based, which makes
it extremely flexible and very easy to use. This website builder was designed
with creative types in mind; especially those who want to design a website that
will show off their art or products in the best possible light.

Portfoliobox users have
demonstrated they can easily design and build an attractive portfolio website
in a few short hours.

Portfoliobox’s Free plan is ideal
for building a small website or to better familiarize yourself with this
product and what it can do for you. It includes hosting of 30 images, 10 pages,
and 10 products.

As you would expect, the Pro plan
offers significantly more, and includes hosting of 1,000 images, unlimited
hosting of products, blog posts, and pages, custom CSS/IS, Google Analytics
integration, and a personalized domain.

Both plans include all
Portfoliobox design templates.

4. 8b Website Builder

          This
brand new website builder features a modern, easy to work with UI. With this
recently launched (January 2019) website builder you can do your design and
build activities on both a desktop and a mobile device. Since the 8b website
builder resides on a Google AMP framework, you can expect your site to be
crazy-fast and 100% mobile friendly.

5.
WP Page Builder

          The
WP page builder offers a futuristic and friendly UI, it gives you total control
over your website design activities, and everything is drag and drop and on the
frontend. No developer or design skills are necessary thanks to 8b’s
comprehensive selection of state of the art design elements, ready-to-use
design blocks, and excellent layout design flexibility.

You can save your own design
blocks in the WP page builder library for future use.

6. Webflow

          Webflow
is an all-in-one website development platform you can use to design, build, and
launch custom, responsive websites — visually. That is: you don’t need to know
code to master Webflow, because it produces clean semantic code for you as you
build your site.

You can also create a
client-friendly CMS system for each site that will benefit editors, developers,
and designers. And unlike most similar tools, you can start from a blank
canvas, community-created UI kits, or a free or premium template.         

7. Quix – Joomla Page Builder

          If
you are looking for a Joomla page builder that would fulfill all your page
building needs, then Quix might be your choice. Quix comes with more than 30+
elements, 100+ readymade blocks and templates, header-footer builder, form
builder, and theme builder.

This is the first page builder
that provides real-time SEO analysis for faster ranking and image optimization
for rapid page loading. There is no other page builder like Quix available in
the Joomla market.

3 Key Tips for Building a Successful Website

1
– Make your site mobile responsive

Once upon a time, it was an
option. Then, it became a highly-recommended option. Now, for all practical
purposes, it’s mandatory. The reason: more than 62% of today’s shoppers make
purchases from their cellphones. 9 in 10 use smartphones to read product
reviews and compare prices.

2
– Be sure to place your contact information where it’s easy to locate

Placing your contact information
above the fold is always a good idea. If you use social media to promote your
business, place links at the header or footer to serve the same purpose.

3
– Don’t ignore the need for speed

Busy shoppers can become extremely
irritated when a website page is slow to load. Or, when a website doesn’t
behave as it’s expected to. 8 in 10 shoppers simply won’t tolerate slow-loading
sites and a third of them are likely to bail out. Nearly 9 in 10 will think
about looking elsewhere if a site is buggy and misbehaves.

Keep your site updated and running
smoothly. optimize videos and images for fast downloads. Also, make sure to use
a host that will reliably manage your site’s bandwidth demands.

Conclusion

It’s not always easy to find a
website or page builder that will exactly fit your needs. It can be especially
challenging for beginners who don’t always know exactly what to look for.

We’ve tried to narrow your search

They did a great job with my husbands' new site for his business; everything looks super clean, and it's a website that will last years vs. one that will end up looking outdated 18 months from now. The responsiveness of the site and the way that it flows looks awesome, and it's truly a great first impression for anyone coming to learn more about the business. Definitely recommend working
