9 Beaver Builder Tutorial Videos from our Awesome Community

Beaver Builder is designed as an easy-to-use solution, approachable for WordPress newbies and advanced users alike. At the same time, it’s a powerful tool with lots of options, and it can be hard to know where to start when you first pick it up without help from a tutorial or two. Even after some time using our page builder plugin, you may be missing out on key features and settings.

We offer lots of resources to help you learn how to use Beaver Builder. However, you don’t have to rely only on us. There’s an entire WordPress community out there creating excellent content you can access for free. So without further ado, here are ten top Beaver Builder tutorial videos!

1. Beaver Builder – How to Build WordPress Pages with Beaver Builder

  • Building a layout with columns, rows, and modules

We found this video clear and well-paced, presented in a low-key style that’s very approachable.

All-in-all, this is a handy tutorial that shows you not just what to do, but why to do it, as well as the effects of various tweaks and changes. If you like it, there’s a similar video on creating custom footers.

8. Using the Genesis Framework With Beaver Builder

Channel: Sure Fire Web Services

Approx. Time: 12 minutes

The Sure Fire Web Services channel has historically posted content for WordPress web developers. That has included plenty of development diaries and tutorials. In the past year, the channel has pivoted more towards speaking to small business owners, offering advice on marketing and lead generation via your website.

The video we’re looking at today is an older one but still both relevant and useful. In it, you'll learn:

  • What the Genesis Framework is and its advantages
  • Why it synergizes perfectly with Beaver Builder
  • Tips for using Genesis Framework and Beaver Builder in combination to create websites

This is less a step-by-step tutorial, and more an informational resource on two high-quality WordPress tools. It serves as an excellent introduction to the powerful Genesis Framework and makes a strong case for why it’s a top theme to use with Beaver Builder.

Additionally, the video is full of handy tips and tricks for getting started with this particular duo. It’s a valuable resource both for web developers and experienced Beaver Builder users looking to build a new and highly-customized website.

  • Make it appear as though your content is spanning multiple rows without using negative margins
  • Easily create a ‘split-screen’ effect

This video is aimed squarely at more advanced Beaver Builder users, who are well-practiced using the plugin and looking for tips on creating complex and unique layouts. In fact, it (and many of David’s videos) should be of particular interest to developers.

    Awesome

  2. David Waumsley on May 11, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    With so many clever folks doing videos I’m over joyed and gobsmacked (I think a British term) to get included. Thank you.

    • Robby McCullough on May 13, 2016 at 12:19 pm

      Keep ’em up! You’re doing a great job on those vids. 🙂

  3. Colin on May 12, 2016 at 3:57 am

    Thanks for your warm words Robby:-) I feel very honoured to be included on a list with such awesome people.

    Thanks also for taking me back to the beginning. I remember all those early chats and brainstorming sessions with much fondness. Who knew that 3 guys who had just changed the name of their little plugin to Beaver Builder would go on to create such a life changing plugin. Yes, I said life changing! Mainly because the daily lives of many people would be a bit of a drag and not nearly as much fun without Beaver Builder. You, Justin and Billy definitely changed my life for the better, that’s for sure!

    Just wanted to take this opportunity to also thank Adam, Joe, David, Jon M. and Jon P. for sharing some of their knowledge and ultimately getting out of their comfort zone to record it. I know it can be hard to put yourself out there, so kudos to you guys for “just effing doing it!”

    Last, but not least, I want to say a big thanks to the three of you for being amazing friends and just down-right remarkable people. I love you guys!

    P.S. You are truly inspirational Robby! As you know, I had to step away from the Dynamik Beaver to concentrate on some other things, but reading your posts always gives me a burning desire to go back in to record some more tutorials and write some more posts. I’m not going to promise anything, but if I do, You’ll be the first to know.

    • David Waumsley on May 12, 2016 at 10:46 am

      Colin, after Robby’s patriarch comment can I now call you Daddy Beaver?. I think I may have just creeped myself out with that one.

      Really nice words. Definitely out of my comfort zone, but thankfully the Beavers are a supportive bunch.

      There’s so many good folks now writing and talking about Beaver Builder, but your stuff has always been easy for me to digest and useful. Please do something if you can without putting yourself under pressure.

      • Colin on May 12, 2016 at 1:15 pm

        You’re way too kind, David:-)

        Although I really appreciate the honourable (that’s “honorable” for all our American friends out there) title bestowed by you, I think “Daddy Beaver” is maybe a little misleading. After all, I wasn’t actually there for the conception, or birth of the little Beaver!

        Maybe “Uncle Beaver” is more appropriate?

        Before I go and watch all of these awesome videos again, I just want to say that I think the Beaver Builder community is the most amazing group of people I’ve been involved in. There are so many good people contributing their own time and energy to help others and make Beaver Builder better for everyone. It’s really awesome to be part of such a knowledgeable, spirited and caring group!

        • Robby McCullough on May 13, 2016 at 12:19 pm

          Lmao! Uncle Beaver works, too. Thanks, Colin! <3

    So what am I, chopped liver? LOL 😉

    • Justin Busa on June 30, 2016 at 11:08 am

      Of course not! 🙂 Thanks for all of your contributions. We’ll make sure to get you in the next one!
