Ladies and gentlemen welcome back to another video in this video. I want to discuss a requested video topic that came from my subscriber about Elementor versus Oxygen Builder. I'm a bit biased because this website is built using Elementor Pro however I have built many websites also using Oxygen Builder so let's begin!
|Ease of Use||Very Easy||Hard|
|Features||Feature Rich||Feature Rich|
|Integrations||Full Integrations||Not as Many|
|Cost / Pricing||$49- $199 / Year||One Time Fee $99|
Now it kind of depends on what you're trying to do here, but I will say this I've built tons of client websites using oxygen builder. And I just recently moved my blog content website to on Prestonscorner.com to Elementor. So I'm gonna go through a lot of different pros and cons between the two tools, but here we go! So first things first, let's talk about speed because that is one of the crucial elements of any modern website. You've got to have light code, the website's gotta load fast, and it's got to look good on all different types of devices on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.
So speed is crucial and I'm ranking speed. I'm going to select who I think is the winner between all of [00:01:30] these different categories here. So as far as speed is concerned from just what I've seen so far, I think based on, you know, all things considered, I'm going to have to give the winner of speed to oxygen builder. This is because the oxygen framework is more flexible. It's more customizable, and it's just better when it comes to speed because you can control exactly what you want to load per page.
So I've got to give them the when they're when we're getting down [00:02:00] to the ease of use. What I mean by that is if you're a developer, it's going to be different from somebody like me, who's a marketer. Who's not, you know, a hundred percent tire Mikkel. I, you know, I don't code. So when we're talking about ease of use it's for a marketer, it's for a business owner.
And from that perspective, I think I have to give the title of that one to L mentor because oxygen, while it is fast and it does have a lot of capabilities, it is [00:02:30] a little bit harder to use. It's got a huge learning curve to use the platform. So I've got to give it to element tore. They've got better templates, they've got a bigger library and they've just made the platform a lot easier to use for general users on the internet. So they take the cake on that one,
as far as features this one I'm, I'm just thinking about this. This is a tough one to decide because they both have so much flexibility. This space, [00:03:00] uh, element towards got a huge library. They have a lot of integrations. I've got a lot of different elements. Um, I guess I don't want to consider integrations cause it's the next one, but, uh, oxygen, the features here, it's such a flexible framework. You can really do anything. So any of the features you can custom code them. And I would say that makes this a really tough decision here.
But again, the review here for me, I'm speaking
From a marketer's perspective. So I'm going to have to go [00:03:30] with element Tor better features only because it's features that I can actually use. Yes, oxygen probably does have the same features, but am I going to be able to figure it out and actually use it? Probably not without reading all of the documentation, getting into it or actually hiring a developer. So got to give the cake on that one, two element or now getting into integrations. This is a tough one. When I say integrations, what I mean is some sort of API [00:04:00] that will help you easily connect to another service. For example, if I've got an El mentor page and I want to integrate Stripe to take payments, how easy is it to integrate element or with striped my current page oxygen, same thing. How easy is it to integrate other solutions into my current framework?
And again, integrations, how easy is it again? I think this one goes to element or I've got to give it to them, just simpler, easy to use oxygen. [00:04:30] They've got a lot of different things. I like it hot. They just, it's not, it's not simple and easy to use for the general user. Now cost and pricing is an interesting one. Uh, Ella mentor, they charged by the site. And so if you just wanted to do it on one website, they're gonna charge you less than if you wanted to use it on a bunch of websites.
Package is like $200 a year and you get to use it on unlimited websites, but you have to keep paying that recurring cost every single [00:05:00] year, which can get expensive. So I understand if you're not a huge fan of that oxygen, okay, I'm going to go back to my main camera here. Oxygen is great. And this is the reason why a lot of agencies love oxygen is because there's a one time fee and you can use it on as many different websites as you want. So oxygen for a hundred bucks, I think is only a hundred dollars for oxygen three that just came out with it. Um, you can use it on as many different websites. So [00:05:30] I got to give it to oxygen on that for the cost and pricing. However, even though I'm giving it to them on this one that like I said, they just released oxygen 3.0, and they will charge you to upgrade oxygen for depending on where you are in the upgrade cycle, if you've upgraded previously or if you haven't upgraded.
So I might dock them a little bit for that, but otherwise, fantastic. It's cheaper and you get way more licenses unlimited, like I said, [00:06:00] so that one's great. Now this one down here, my overall pick, you know, I was thinking a lot about this and the questions and business problems and things that I'm trying to solve here are kind of coming from the stance of having a marketing website and having content, having different page templates that you can use with different data structures inside of those pages. As far as if I have [00:06:30] a headline on the page, I always want it in this font and I want it styled this way. And then if I have paragraph text, I want style this way. And I want images pulled in dynamically inside of the WordPress structure. So when I'm thinking about my favorite pick here, I'm thinking about it for me.
So, like I said earlier, I just migrated my website over to elementary or the Preston's corner blog and the whole website actually. So it has the ability to set up those templates for blog posts for other things. So I'm really, [00:07:00] really loving that, um, oxygen has the same ability and capability to do that. However, I'd have to hire a developer because it's frankly just too complicated. Um, and I think it was actually built by a developer, uh, element or I was able to get in there, uh, and very quickly and easily develop all the page templates for blog posts, for video blog posts for more text-heavy content and built my home page, built all my other different page types. So, uh, on [00:07:30] this one, I've got to give it to element Tor as the big winner here. So I'm going to put some links down below, check out an element, Tor, check out oxygen, check out my new website. We, I just redesigned it. And, uh, it took a lot of time, took a lot of effort, but it really focusing on bringing the blog into the 20th, 21st century, rather into 2020 and, uh, making it a lot more user friendly, refreshing it visually and getting some more graphics and, and [00:08:00] more modern aesthetics to the site. So check that out and thank you so much for watching this video. Be sure to like comment and subscribe and I'll see you next time. Thanks for watching. Bye bye.
