CommonSpot

Commonspot is well suited for web content management to be conducted by individuals with low-level web skills.

Elementor

If you need to have agile web design and easy editing, then Elementor is the way to go. You run into trouble when you need super custom solutions, or when you combine it with certain plug-ins that don’t play well. This is on a case-by-case basis, and can often be solved by high-level programmers.

Pros

CommonSpot

  • I think CommonSpot's greatest strength is its ease of use. It's relatively intuitive in it's usage, so it therefore makes it easy to train new people to use it.
  • Within my usage of it, our options were limited, which again added to it's ease of use.

Elementor

  • The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate. Each of the blocks is laid out in a very standard way. This makes learning Elementor pretty quick. There are a lot of advanced features that take longer to become familiar with, but for solid basic design, it is easy to learn.
  • Elementor is quite capable of building nicely designed fast sites. It also has excellent Mobile capabilities allowing a designer to make sure the look on Tablet and Phone are as well designed as the desktop version.
  • Elementor works well with virtually every Theme out there. However, to go a step further, there are quite a few Themes that are built specifically to work with Elementor.
  • This is not something that Elementor does, but I need to mention that there are several Block sets out there that are made for Elementor and expand the design capabilities.

Cons

CommonSpot

  • Commonspot needs to improve on its authoring feature. It is impossible to author on more than one page at a time . (One must always click on "View work on all changes") before switching between pages otherwise, the changes will not be saved.
  • CommonSpot does not support sharing the definition of any custom element or any template layouts. Therefore, one must recreate these in each site.
  • In Commonspot, a user who has to manage content in multiple sites will have to log in to each site to see and act on any actions.

  • If you'd asked me a year ago where Elementor could improve, this list would be easy, now, not so much. The product develops at a phenomenal rate with new features consistently being rolled out. Support has improved DRAMATICALLY and is really world class at this point.

I had no previous background in content management, and found it very easy to use. If I could figure it out, I am pretty certain that just about anyone else could as well.

Elementor is one of those website builders that is really easy to get started with. The drag and drop features make it easy to create attractive and creative webpages for even the non-website designer. Some of the features available are not easy to find or easy to discover when you first start using Elementor. Practice makes perfect.

There support is slow and at times can be frustrating and this is why many prefer to air out their frustrations within the Facebook group community. I tend to give up as when I'm working on something and something goes wrong I need the help straight away. I do not have the patience to wait anymore.

Commonspot works in tandem with Zendesk very well to accomplish tasks an an efficient manner.

Elementor

Elementor is superior to other page builders I have used previously, including Divi and Beaver Builder, and are easier to use than hosted options I have previously used, including Squarespace and Wix. It allows for more flexible designs for advanced users and a more intuitive interface for complete beginners. It is full of great features, widgets and premade templates that are great to use for users of all levels.

Return on Investment

CommonSpot

  • I was working in a religious institution and based upon our usage and audience, there was no ROI to speak of. Our usage was more for providing information than having any type of interaction. In that instance, it worked very well.

Elementor

  • ROI: able to complete more web design projects in less time.
  • ROI: able to upload demo content/themes and edit with ease, giving clients the opportunity to see mockups faster than before.
  • ROI: ease of use allows for more opportunities to design sites for more companies.
