Flatsome and Elementor are very popular these days for building beautiful webshops at lightning speed. Let’s see what advantages and disadvantages these 2 systems have. We’re starting this Elementor vs Flatsome comparison with Elementor, which doesn’t mean it would be better because of that.
Elementor Page Builder
Elementor is now pretty much one of the best-known page builders for WordPress. The page builder continues to improve, just like their own website, which is getting better and better. In this Elementor Review, we’re going to take a look at why Elementor is loved by such a large audience. The addition of their own theme called Hello Elementor certainly plays a part in their success.
Elementor Page Builder Review
The elementor pagebuilder works very fast and is very easy to understand for every layman. This does not mean that professionals do not like to work with it, on the contrary. This website was put together by me with Elementor and everything runs smoothly. Below you can see how you can build a page in the blink of an eye using drag & drop.
Elementor Review 90 widgets
Elementor has about 90 widgets which you can see here, a very high number for a page builder. Another word for widgets is elements, which immediately explains the name of the page builder. There are a lot of companies that offer extra widgets for Elementor like for example one of the best: Astra’s Ultimate Elementor. Below check out the basic widgets (the pro widgets appear on hover).
The Navigator appears floating when you right-click a widget and select “Navigator”. You now see a list with all widgets and sections neatly under each other and you can jump anywhere quickly. Everyone will use the Navigator in their own way. I mainly use it to drag widgets or sections to another position. Without the Navigator, this is sometimes a very difficult task.
Elementor Conversion & Leads
Leads and conversion are of course very important for every website today. In the example below you can see that Elementor has very nice designs for forms, landing pages and the like. You can read more about Elementor’s conversion here.
Elementor Review Woocommerce
In the widgets chapter you already saw a whole block with extra widgets for Woocommerce. Every self-respecting theme or page builder these days is well prepared for the collaboration with the most popular plugin for E-commerce called Woocommerce and that goes for Elementor as well. Read more about everything Elementor has to offer for the construction of shops here.
Elementor's Theme Builder
In this Elementor Review we are not going to forget the ThemeBuilder, of course. The Themebuilder has been added with one of the latest upgrades and gives total control over the headers, footers and other global items on your website. The adjustments you make here are carried out on your entire website in one go. Read more about the Theme Builder here.
The absolute best program for popups for me is Poptins, but we can see here that Elementor already has popups integrated which makes it practically unnecessary to spend any more money on it. Pop-ups, if used properly and not annoying, are certainly a great way to increase sales in affiliate marketing or generate more leads for businesses.
Elementor has very reasonable prices regardless of whether it is for 1 website or many websites in the case of a professional design agency. If you purchase Elementor, buying a theme is basically unnecessary, which makes the page builder even more attractive.
Elementor Review Conclusion
It is with great pleasure that I have written this Elementor Review. It’s always nice to write about a good product that sells itself. Elementor is simply one of the best page builders out there. Tastes differ, so one has it at 1 and the other at 3, but we cannot deny that this is a top product. Elementor is an absolute killer.
Let’s continue this Flatsome vs Elementor Review with the Flatsome Theme.
The Flatsome Theme
Flatsome is a WordPress theme that is totally specialized in E-commerce or building webshops. The theme works perfectly together with the Woocommerce plugin that is used by everyone today to create shops. This Flatsome Theme Review gives you a bird’s eye view of all its best features.
Flatsome Theme Review Studio
Apart from a single professional designer, there is really no one left who starts a website from scratch. Practically all themes (also free) offer a wide range of complete demo websites and many more prepared sections. The Flatsome theme is not left behind and now has 300+ pieces in its range. With no more than 1 click you can install such a design in your website and from there you start working on your own corporate identity. All you have to do is delete what you don’t want to use and replace the rest of the images and texts with your own.
Flatsome's Loading Speed
Flatsome has heavily improved the loading time of the theme with one of the latest upgrades. The alleged data shown in the image below seems a bit exaggerated to me and I have not checked. It is clear that the theme is fast. As you probably know, Google and visitors place great value on fast-loading websites.
Flatsome's UX Page Builder
The UX page builder was invented by the builders of Flatsome. And although it may not be the DiviBuilder or Elementor, this page builder works great and you will definitely like it. Watch the video below to understand a bit more about the UX Builder.
Flatsome is a real Woocommerce theme and is full of professional gadgets that make every webshop a success. I can’t show everything in this Flatsome Theme review, those features below are just a part. If you like to see them all, check out Flatsome’s own website.
Woocommerce Product Pages
Flatsome comes with beautifull pre-designed product pages. With Flatsome it is also possible to use different styles with different products, as many as you want. There are few themes that offer such a wide range of Woocommerce pages, this feature is very nice.
Flatsome Shape Dividers
Divi was the first with Shape Dividers, then Elementor I think, now they all come with it and so is Flatsome. The best are still Divi’s. Of course I have nothing against the Shape Dividers, they are wonderful toys with which you can create beautiful borders between sections.
An impressive feature in Flatsome is the number of different headers that the theme makes available. Aside from the standard headers, there is also a header builder that allows you to customize every little detail in your chosen header. Below you can see a number of these headers.
Flatsome Review Elements
The Flatsome theme comes with a nice number of widgets in its UX-Builder. I say a nice number because of course we cannot compare this with the huge range that an Elementor page builder has to offer. Below are the main widgets in the image.
Flatsome Theme Review Conclusion
During this Flatsome Theme review I showed you the most striking features for me. We can safely say that Flatsome is a great theme for creating webshops. This is what it was made for from the start. The fact that it is also a corporate theme was only added later and for such websites I would certainly prefer to use a theme like Divi or possibly another good theme with the Elementor page builder.
Flatsome vs Elementor Conclusion
Flatsome is one of the few themes that is not built for Elementor, but works with its own page builder. The UX-Builder as it is called is certainly a good page builder, but it cannot be compared with Elementor. On the other hand, Flatsome as a theme has a number of things to offer that Elementor does not have on its own. Therefore, in my opinion Elementor and Flatsome are both pleasant products and I enjoy working with them. They are both recommended. Apart from this comparison, I would prefer to work with the Elementor + Astra combination.
