One thing is for sure, Avada is the best selling theme on the infamous Themeforest marketplace. Unfortunately I have some doubts about the enormous sales figures since I have been advertising it for years but earn practically nothing from it. I have had the theme in my collection for about 8 years now and have very good experiences with it. It will certainly sell well, but the marketplace where they sell their theme is just very dodgy, which can be clearly seen on the reviews on Sitejabber, for example.
Avada Theme Review Ratings
Avada is a popular theme and has a very good rating, on average 4.77 out of 5. However, there are themes such as Divi that score practically 5 out of 5, and there are also themes on the same marketplace that come above 4.9.
Avada's Page Builder
There are several lesser-known but good page builders that have been developed by the builders of themes themselves. For example, the Flatsome Theme has its UX-Builder and Avada in turn has the FusionBuilder. Below you can see the page builder working on a testimonial. Below that a screenshot of the live visual page builder in action.
The Avada Theme gives you more than 120 elements (also called widgets). That is a large number, quite a bit more than most themes offer, and then we are talking about other top themes.
Avada Review: Demo Websites
The number of pre-prepared demo websites or starter templates is also quite high. Choose one of the 86 1-click demos to save a lot of time by not having to start your project from scratch. Below in the image you can see how this works, just select a demo and install it. A mebership license is of course required.
Avada Theme Review: Speed
As can be seen below, Avada shows astonishingly good results in a speed test at GtMetrix. Avada offers you a section in the backend where you can set many factors that influence the loading time of your website, the so-called “Performance Wizard”. For optimal speed it is always important to install one of the best cache plugins.
Avada's Form Builder
Avada actually has everything in it so that you don’t have to buy an extra plugin as seen here is a Form Builder with which you can quickly build exactly the forms you need for information requests or call-to-action purposes. The feature already has a large number of prepared forms that you can get up and running very quickly.
Avada Theme Review Conclusion
As mentioned, Avada is packed with features and it is not for nothing that it is one of the best-selling WordPress Themes, and has been for years. I can certainly recommend the theme as long as it is for only 1 website. The theme has a major weakness and that is the platform on which it is sold. This marketplace has a very bad reputation and takes a very high commission. This means that Avada cannot offer special deals, but requires a separate license for each website you have. This, of course, quickly becomes very expensive. Much cheaper alternatives are, for example, Divi and Astra. These are almost even better and you can use them on as many sites as you want.
