  1. Are two different things. I’ve tried webflow but for me, it’s too much unknown and not user-friendly like elementor and WordPress, at least it is in my work environment. In Italy, unfortunately, it is not in common use. I also believe that with webflow you are bound to their servers.
    Webflow is more complicated, you must know HTML and CSS very well. But you can accomplish anything. Elementor is much simpler, but you may run into limitations. But the truth is both can work. Because you can accomplish great looking sites using both. It just depends on your skill level.

  2. Webflow is not yet advanced, it sounds promising but still has a long way to become widely accepted. WP gives you 100% control and doesn’t force you by binding you with a retainer plan. For people who haven’t use Sketch, Figma, Adobe XD etc, Webflow would be harder to learn. I think the tool is great and the code is much cleaner but is way more expensive, and it has fewer possibilities of scalability.
    I joined Webflow when it was new. It has so little features I had to get back to WordPress and discovered Elementor. If your plan is to build simple pretty websites I’d recommend both. Both of them have similar load times and the workflow is also pretty much the same. You’ll however sometimes face difficulties when you build some advanced sites.
    WordPress is still over 60% of the web. Your better off learning and growing your skillset on the most common CMS than some trend service that likely won’t be around in a few years. 
    Webflow is limited to what’s possible as they build it out. If you need a feature and it doesn’t exist yet then you’ll have to wait for it to be implemented into their solution which could be a long time. It’s definitely a cool program but has its’ limits. 

    Go with Elementor Page Builder

  3. Oxygen Builder because the control you get with WebFlow with the advantage of WordPress
    But really, it depends on the goals of your client. Do they need to update the website regularly?
    Will you manage it? Which tool achieves the goals for your client with your skills is the best one. For non-tech users, Elementor is great. Just plug and play website solutions. 
    With Webflow there is 0 updating core, plugins, and anything just to keep ur site running as expected. You need to have a little more tech understanding to build the site, but assuming you’re clients don’t want to change the layout, it’s very easy for clients to make some content changes like adding text /images.
    WordPress is cheaper and I think Elementor is easier to create sites as there is a lot of pre-made blocks and pages. But I have not looked at webflow in a while, have they improved their pre-made layouts? The last time I looked you had to start every project from scratch.

  4. Oxegen Page Builder is the best actually

    Coming from WebFlow, I think Oxygen Builderis far far better than webflow right now, the workflow is faster and better, most of the plugins for WordPress works pretty well with Oxygen, there is no competition at all. Webflow is really closed and expensive, you need to host with them, if something is missing you can’t work around, with Oxygen you can.
    Also, I recreated some of my Webflow website with oxygen, It takes less time doing it with oxygen than with webflow, to be honest.
    Also, I really like the one-time payment license, the only thing I miss is the nice responsive menu customization, but I’m sure that will be added really soon.

  5. Webflow is awful. I was just using it and I absolutely hate it. So many questionable things that make it so much more difficult to use. Not something I can hand over to my clients at all. They would be screwed. I don’t know, not for me!
    I’m not a professional web designer, just a user who’s been around the block a few times, and used both WP and SquareSpace. Squarespace has really come a long way, with regard to its functionality and eCommerce capabilities, even including some limited membership options (all of which use to be nil, forcing people – aka me – to WP).
    SS is absolute *gorgeous* in every way, but that said, it’s pretty darned fixed in every way, so if you want something that does a whole heckuva lot of your thinking and heavy lifting for you (including stats, updating, etc.), and it’ll look and do what your client wants, then SS is a superb option. However, if you really need the flexibility of a custom build, then WP is still the better option.
    I loathe page builders. Have used themes with two of them, but recently switched to Gridlove by Meks, because it’s extraordinarily customizable without having to add a page builder on top of everything else. I’ve no vested interest in Meks, just love their work – have used their shortcodes plugin for probably 10 years, and no matter what WP/tech throws at it, that thing just works. The same is proving true about the theme.
    I hope this helps point you in the right direction, and look forward to others’ impressions as well.

  6. Elementor is so much easier, but Webflow gives you more flexibility and better code beneath it. The advantages of Elementor are more important. Tbh these two are slightly different kinds of software. For webflow you need more coding knowledge for sure.
    Webflow is way to expensive if you make a business on it. The clients need to pay a fee every month. It’s very good. There are things you cannot do with other plugins but in my opinion, it isn’t worth it.
    Webflow is limited in certain ways while in elementor you have full freedom of whatever you want to use or experiment with in addition to full support of WordPress functions. Forget about the expensive and dependent environment;
    This is not like elementor, completely integrated with WordPress. This can be compared to brizy cloud. elementor is a completely user-hosted plugin.

  7. We build our websites on WordPress with Elementor without any limitations for what the client needs both small and large websites. We have a graphic designer that develops our designs and we put it on the site. If you don’t know what you are doing you can get caught up with adding plugins and with it being open source yes you run a risk of something breaking. But we test code before implementation and run as few plugins as possible to make sure the sites are lean.
    I have only seen webflow, not used it, so I don’t know enough to make a comparison but we haven’t seen any limitations.

  8. Webflow is a very powerful builder. But yes, nothing compared to what’s doable with wp+plugins. You can still integrate with external tools and create complex sites, but it will cost you significantly more than buying plugins for wp

  9. Haven’t used webflow yet but it claims to export usable clean code – not sure elementor does that or does it well. Thoughts?

  10. WordPress + Elementor if you have no coding skills. Webflow is amazing and you can achieve a bit more with it but you need to have some web design knowledge, otherwise, it’s going to be a pain

    • Webflow appears to be more than just a page designer, as they provide web services (SSL, CDN, and site/server management). That is quite a difference from Elementor, which is a plug-in for open-source software. To this point, Elementor only needs to deal with a fraction of what Webflow provides, and due to that reason, I believe investment opportunity is not to the level of Webflow unless huge changes are done to provide a more ‘all-in-one’ tool.
    • Webflow uses its designer (their revolutionary product) to lure you in. Their web services are where they are making most of their money which is the hidden cost. Where Elementor absolutely shines is with the number of addons and integrations. It’s incredible what you can do with that tool when you juice it up with things like Piotnet, Essential Addons, and Dynamic Content.

    Having said that, I agree that WebFlow has a future. Awesome tool.

    Using Webflow to create a WP website is like installing an emulator to run Windows on Linux.
    They are completely different tools and philosophies! WebFlow scope is to speed up the web design workflow (I mean the work of web designers who know CSS, Flexbox, CSS grid, Javascript, etc. It also allows you to create dynamic websites producing extremely clean source code.
    Usually, developers are using WebFlow to create the design of the website and then they put in it the code like PHP or Node.js in order to implement certain data-driven functionalities. I used webflow + PHP, a nice experience! WebFlow is for “next level custom projects”. As for Elementor, it is not a “page builder” anymore, it is much more than that! Using Elementor + ACF and/or toolset the possibilities are endless even for non-coders.
    Webflow’s UI is far superior and can pump out w3c compliant code… but it’s more suited for web designers/uxui. If you are looking to design without barriers, it is for sure the tool to use.
    But Elementor is a tool more suited towards an end-user who is looking to “design without code” and would like to leverage the benefits of a CMS like WordPress. For me, it all comes down to needs. I always start with Webflow first and if needed convert it to WordPress

  12. Webflow isn’t limited, it’s a tool that produces production-ready code you can export to a server. Elementor and WordPress are going to be really slow and vulnerable to malware and always under attack. If your client doesn’t need WordPress do not use WordPress.
    It can do everything Elementor page builder does but more production-ready and lighter weight faster more secure. Elementor is not production-ready, sadly. Been there don’t that. Elementor isn’t as final as you may think it is.
    It all depends on what problem we are trying to solve. Most of the time tine WordPress is unnecessary, and it brings in a lot of vulnerabilities and slow load times.
    If you need WordPress use WordPress but if you don’t need WordPress DO NOT USE WordPress. It is much harm as it is good.
    I’m more into the design, so Webflow is awesome. It works really well for small CMS projects and e-commerce. No maintenance is great, but it’s a little pricey compared to other solutions. I sell the price to customers saying they fully managed.
    I was using Elementor, but I’ve got to say, Webflow may have won me over. If you’re not sure, watch the Webflow 101 course (2 hours of videos). It shows you just how powerful and well thought out the tool is. Plus, if the tool ever goes away, you have real, clean, code.
