Hi, thanks for joining me, Michele Bergh here with “Bergh Consulting”. In this video today, we’re going to talk about “Page Builders” and specifically “The Beaver Builder”, Page Builder, which is my preferred version, my preferred choice. If you’re not familiar with Page Builders, basically what they are is a “Drag and drop” way of adding columns and rows to a website page, to hold the content that you need to place on that page. It makes it really easy to keep things aligned properly, placed, where they should be, spaced apart properly.

And then the second part of that process is to pick the types of content that you need and drag and drop them into the spot, that you want them to be, and then style them. There are ways to do some of the styling, default styling behind the scenes. So that every time you drop a button in there or whatever, it’s going to look exactly the same as all the others. And that is a really nice feature to have.

The reason that I prefer Beaver Builder is there’s several, actually. One, is that the developer team is just really top-notch. Their focus has been on creating a core product, that is really stable. So that your site has a solid foundation, that it’s being built on.

Two, they are primarily focused on agencies. And what I mean by that is that they’re marketing primarily to agencies. And their marketing as a tool that is really stable. If you can imagine being an agency owner and having not just one or two websites that you handle, but 5 or 10 or a 100, or even 200 or 300 or more. If one site breaks because of a tool that you’re using, you’re not just having one site break, you’re having all of them break. And that can mean lots and lots of lost time, energy, and resources to fix whatever happened and get all those sites back up and running. It can do a lot of damage to your business, if you can’t do that in a timely manner. And that is part of the reason that Beaver Builder has worked so hard, just to create a really solid core.

It doesn’t have a lot of “Bells and whistles”, but most of the time you don’t need bells and whistles. If you do, there are “Add-on” options, that you can add to your website to get those. And they might give you some issues, but the core Beaver Builder will not. The more you stack of anything on your site, the more you run the risk of having conflicts, it doesn’t matter what it is. But Beaver Builder at its core, is not probably going to be the creator of that problem.

They have a really solid community of support. They have Facebook groups, Slack groups, and their standard company support is timely and filled with very, very willing people to help you with whatever your issue is, whether it is, that you think something is wrong or that you don’t know how to do something, or you’re looking for tips and tricks. There are plenty of people out there, that are willing to give you really great help in that process.

The other builders out there, I’m not saying that they aren’t good builders. I just find that they’re not focused on creating for agencies and they’re not focused on creating a solid foundation. They’re very open to adding bells and whistles because that’s what their audience wants and in doing so, it creates some issues with stability and I frequently see sites breaking under those tools, and that’s why I’ve chosen to stick with Beaver Builder and use it to create that solid foundation for my clients.

Thanks for joining me! And I hope to see you on the next video.
