Wow what can I say? We have been waiting a while to give our own site a facelift, we are usually to busy building and hosting sites for our clients.
This was a monster change as we also changed our business name from 2001web to 3001web after many years so much more to do than just a new site. Thankfully working with the builder sped the design part up considerably.
Having used MANY MANY themes/frameworks over the years (Avada, X, Divi, Nimva etc etc) I have to say that Beaver Builder is not only fast to work with it is the least troublesome framework we have used.
Love the fact we can save page layouts, this will make it much easier for passing designs off to clients. We can build a client specific set of templates and just show them how to load them. Unlike other builders I also think Beaver Builder is simple enough for even inexperienced clients to use.
For our own site we decided to move away from “corporate” and “Stuffy” to a more friendly looking site complete with mascot. We also wanted to make the site less “Wordy” and try to speed up the navigation process for our visitors.
As a company we focus mostly on the speed of WordPress sites we create, and offering the clients FAST hosting including WordPress Updates. Obviously we can only do so much at server level the theme used is really important too.
In this area too the Beaver package is a winner, just one little negative a request for a font URL that can not be done in a single packet, the support team have been informed of this and I feel sure they will resolve it.
All in all loved working with Beaver and will be using it heavily for client projects in the future.
Good work guys!
Here is the site (UK server) we have had page speeds as low as 500ms AWESOME!
