WordPress is, just like Shopify, a vast domain full of challenges. It takes more than a drag and drop to build a cool website and all of us know this. In fact, it takes a lot of experience to build and rank a site on Google. If you want to use Google Ads, that’s another story. However, for this, too, you will need to customize the platform and make it more likely to convert. So which is the best site builder plugin, a builder which actually makes your site convert?

There are many plugins and even more add-ons for these plugins. Visual Composer is just one of them, just like Bakery Builder or Elementor. Nevertheless, none of them has so many features and functionalities like Elementor. With this one plugin, you can basically build whatever you want, in no time. Effortlessly. In other words, it’s that one plugin to rule them all.
