Elementor is a similar program that allows users to customize and personalize their company’s website. Elementor offers widgets and options that are streamlined for companies that need to use their website as a marketplace, featuring WooCommerce support similar to Visual Composer. The program also features options geared towards marketing with the ability to create custom forms and a variety of templates centered around advertising products.
Elementor provides tools for learning the platform with a YouTube channel complete with several video tutorials to learn its various features. Elementor offers a limited free-forever version with over 40 basic widgets and more than 30 templates. Its five premium plans build upon those features with extra widgets, themes, a theme builder, and extra levels of customer support. These Pro versions start at $49 per year for one website and can include up to 1,000 websites for agency use.
BeaverBuilder is a drag-and-drop web design program that markets itself on the advantage of using its license on unlimited websites instead of the site restrictions imposed by other programs.
BeaverBuilder offers a premium add-on that contains some of the features already included in Visual Composer, such as archive page layouts, 404 pages, and header/footer customization.
There is no free-to-use version of BeaverBuilder, and it offers three premium plans starting at $99 per year, plus the “Beaver Themer” (for full site editing / theme builder functionality) add-on, priced at $147.
The Themify Builder plugin offers a free plan that is in line with the free plan of Visual Composer.
They both offer theme builder functionality, but this feature is limited to the paid versions of each.
Visual Composer offers more elements & templates for the paid version, in fact, getting more UI elements requires purchasing an Addon Bundle (at $39) for Themify, which adds another 25 UI elements.
One advantage of Themify is that a single license will grant it's use on an unlimited number of sites, whereas with Visual Composer, it gets more expensive as you add sites (although not as much as Elementor).
