The evaluation and viability of a page builder greatly varies from client to client and the needs of he online presence and how much custom website design is required. This is also important to a client when it comes to in-house updates or budget being available for agency side support for updates and maintenance.
Mediacake has learned that many of our clients would like a website delivery to be update-able by themselves in order to avoid long winded communications and the budget related to make small updates and changes to their website. This is where a particular page builder such as Elementor or Beaver Builder comes in useful.
Front-end page builder management
Some page builders such as Visual Composer while being comprehensive and offering vast access to all functionalities can often become a little too complicated for clients to adapt to. There is also risk of breakages in alignments and even functionalities of which can kick up all manner of assessment and fix time. whereas a front end page builder will allow an easier access and visually intuitive environment for clients to add pages or edit existing content with minimal experience and marginally less risk of mistakes or breakages
The concept of clicking on an area of interest and being able to edit on the fly has been lovingly received from our clients and that’s why we proactively promote these builds for small to medium size online website design needs.
Additionally the front-end page builders such as Beaver Builder or Elementor are very well optimized when it comes to code and thus resulting in lightweight websites and loading speeds.
The future of page builders
With a the recent update to WordPress (Gutenberg) the expected page builder is still not at the level of some of the most popular out there and still require web development experience to use.
We will see more activity and lots of growth for the most popular page builders in the near future and we absolutely recommend this as a sustainable and cost effective way to achieve well designed, lightweight and fully manageable website design for Bangkok and Thailand.
