Generatepress vs Avada

Generatepress vs Avada

We compare Avada vs Generatepress. Are these themes comparable? Avada is sold on the shady Themeforest marketplace, and Generatepress through its own site. Avada does not have a free version, and Generatepress has a free version trusted by millions.

The Avada Theme

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.

Avada's Elements

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.

Let’s continue this Generatepress vs Avada Review with the Generatepress Theme.

Generatepress Theme

This Generatepress review will quickly show you whether this theme is suitable for building your latest project. According to the builders, Generatepress has been developed for the construction of the perfect shops, corporate websites and blogs. In addition, the theme had to produce lightning-fast loading times.

Generatepress' Rating

So far, only a theme like Divi or Astra can compete with Generatepress’ rating. Of these, only Astra has a free version with a near-perfect rating of 5/5. Generatepress has this too, there are almost no people who give bad grades.

Apart from the free version of Generatepress that can be downloaded here, the theme also has a very good pro version.

Generatepress Review Demos

A while ago, Generatepress everywhere indicated that it is so compatible with Elementor and Beaverbuilder. This is still the case but since the introduction of their own block builder many of the demos are before that. Generatepress currently has a total of 60+ demo website that can be installed with 1 click. Watch the video to get a good impression about their demos.

Generatepress' Speed

I personally don’t know of any faster loading themes than Generatepress except maybe Astra. The theme is really insanely fast, comparable fast to minimalist themes that can do nothing. But Generatepress can do a lot and we are dealing with a special theme here. Below is how their own site loads in a second.

Generatepress' Schema Mark-up

Already built into Generatepress is the Google Schema Mark-Up. It automatically generates rich snippets for your pages, making them easier to find and more frequently displayed.

Generatepress & Woocommerce

Finally, I would like to indicate in this Generatepress review that this theme is also great for building online stores. It offers many features that give your shop a professional impression and building the shop is incredibly fast and smooth. Check the video if you have 2 minutes.

Generatepress Review Pricing

This theme has very reasonable prices. For $59 you can install it on 500 websites, so basically unlimited. View the Generatepress pricing page here.

Generatepress Review Conclusion

Generatepress is installed as a free version on 4 million sites and the pro version on 90,000 sites. This is of course not for nothing and indicates what a good theme this is. The theme is indeed lightning fast, very versatile and has beautiful designs that can be adjusted with elite page builders or their own Block Editor. Definitely recommend this theme.

Generatepress vs Avada Conclusion

You have come to the end of this Avada vs Generatepress comparison. Listen, the Avada theme is very good on all fronts such as design, settings, flexibility and much more but can only be used on 1 site if you buy it. On the other hand, Generatepress is quite minimalistic with a 100% sleek design and probably the fastest WordPress theme out there. Generatepress may be used on 500 sites. My choice goes to Generatepress.
