Gutenberg will evolve into a full-functioning page builder soon
„Gutenberg has three planned stages. The first, aimed for inclusion in WordPress 5.0, focuses on the post editing experience and the implementation of blocks. This initial phase focuses on a content-first approach. … These foundational elements will pave the way for stages two and three, planned for the next year, to go beyond the post into page templates and ultimately, full site customization.”

3 steps to convert your website to Gutenberg
How we MANUALLY do the transformation

Why use Gutenberg instead of other page builders?
So, you have chosen wordpress as your preferred free cms for your website – a good choice considering that 38% of all websites use it. However, for designing your website, there are numerous themes and page builders (mostly as plugins) available, both free and paid.
Ok, page builders such as elementor, beaver builder, visual composer, motopress, themify builder, siteorigin or brizy make it easy to design with total freedom and no design limits even for non-professional webdesigners. When there was no wordpress Gutenberg a few years ago, design options with themes and plugins have indeed been limited. However, this has changed significantly with every new Gutenberg update. The combination of a wordpress theme with the Gutenberg page builder meanwhile does set very few limits to layout and page designs.

Yes, it might look slightly different because Gutenberg, Theme and CSS adjustments might only get it to 95% of your design before. But we will make sure, it looks all very good. It might even look more professional than before because we use standardized Gutenberg blocks instead of several individual designs of each page.

It really depends on the complexity of design and content, because the amount of work determines the time, needed to finish the transformation.
We indeed recommend to transform every website to Gutenberg, because of the many advantages Gutenberg offers over other page builders. However, there might be reasons such as trained personel and a high amount of work might suggest that switching is too costy.
Be sure how much cost is involved! We will need to look at your website from the frontend and backend to see how much work it will be to convert your used page-builder into Gutenberg.
