Contentful

Contentful is well suited for folks who want a simple, clean, easy-to-use interface for a JAVASCRIPT website. If you do not want a javascript website you should look [elsewhere].
Jennifer Garcia | TrustRadius Reviewer

Elementor

I would recommend this for the ease of use and price. It is a good value for any website developer or designer to be able to create multiple websites a year with super simple coding. If you've got a way to speed up your website without using WP Rocket, then it's even better! I think this software is specifically made for someone with a coding background and would recommend that you have a background with Wordpress to make using this software even easier

Pros

Contentful

  • Clean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
  • High degree of flexibility (I can structure data any way my clients need)
  • Enables headless frontend (i.e. I can build any frontend I want without having to change my CMS)
Andrew Folts | TrustRadius Reviewer

Elementor

  • Easy to implement different sections of a page such as images, text blocks, forms etc.
  • There is a range of example pages available for you to change to suit your brand or to provide some inspiration
  • It is easy to add custom CSS (or similar)
Victoria Hoete-Dodd | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Contentful

  • The new Contentful "branches" feature looked promising (it appears to mirror a git-like repository) but it requires the CLI, which isn't necessarily practical for teams that aren't current CLI users. It would be nice if the management of this feature were available via the UI (without that it causes more confusion than anything).
  • The Contentful data modeling method makes for a bit of an awkward SDK developer experience in some strongly typed languages like Java. Most things that you might need can be accomplished, but it feels like the experience could be smoother.
  • It would be nice if there were a way to migrate data between spaces (e.g. from your staging space to production).
Eric Mason | TrustRadius Reviewer

Elementor

  • More Enterprise Features would be nice
  • More integration with 3rd party form plugins like Gravity Forms
  • Sometimes it gets confusing working with template features like headers. Editing in one place may accidentally affect the entire site and it is not always clear.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Contentful

Contentful offers a great deal of features for a relatively low price. This is what ended up persuading us to purchase it. We also gathered that this was one of the more well-rated products out there, which was encouraging. It definitely stacks up well against its competitors.
Nathan Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Elementor

Thrive Leads and thrive architect is a pain to update, they've changed version and name in recent years. I am unable to update because every time there was an upgrade or new release of the plugin it caused issues with my website's functionality which has left me stuck updating old versions that don't work anymore. With Elementor i haven't had this issue.

Return on Investment

Contentful

  • Positive: faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates
  • Negative: Our website manager/provider can keep certain abilities (like changing specific images) so they can charge a fee for making the change
Nathaly Sierra | TrustRadius Reviewer

Elementor

  • Elementor has made it possible for our non-profit to stand out in the non-profit space in which we operate. Our website was highly flexible and looked great, which provided confidence to our donors.
  • Elementor has never been a weak spot in the security of our website. We've had several attempted attacks against our website and yet everything was remained locked down.
  • We have only used the free version of Elementor, so it has kept our costs low and allowed us to have a professional looking website, but being able to put more money towards our charitable cause rather than IT.
