Updated August 2019: Removed old and outdated page builders, either because they haven't been updated, or just aren't keeping up with the other three. Elementor Pro has made huge advancements in what it offers, it's fast becoming a force to be reckoned with, I updated the table to take this into account.
It’s often easy to get caught up in the hype of a new page builder, so I thought it would be helpful to tabulate the most important aspects and features of the top page builders. Here is my comparison chart of the top page builders you may want to use in your business.
I’ve had experience with each of these WordPress page builder plugins, some more than others, but for the purposes of the comparison chart, this will show you exactly what you get compared to the other page builders out there.
I’m fully aware there may be other fantastic page builders out there, but the ones I’ve listed below are the ones I believe are probably what you’re going to look at if you’re trying to start a business online, be it a service you’re offering, a product you’re selling, or simply to make your presence known online.
The page builders I consider to be the top page builder plugins include:
