    We need a dynamic content builder for a marketing customer. 
    The customer wants to configure/create landingpages easy and simple. No coding just click and configure.
    We prefere a module that we can install and use our own custom themes.

    For now we selected 3 solutions:

    1. Easy DNN Block builder;
    2. DNNGo Minis;
    3. Vanjaro.

    Who tried one of these solutions and can give us some advise/reviews?

      If you want to use your own custom themes, you actually can not use either of them. Minis is a theme with page builder, Vanjaro is a theme builder and EDN page builder works best with EDN themes.

      If you want to utilize your own theme, I'd go with 2SXC or OpenContent. 2SXC feels more modern but is a pretty heavy module for this purpose.
      If you are willing to step away from your own theme, EDN and Minis are the easiest to use. Vanjaro is the most advanced but is also more complicated.

        Currently we use DNNGo and noticed that Vanjaro (Mandeeps) is trying to make a sitebuilder label of DNN.
        As a DNN instance but also as a Saas Solution.

        I think Vanjaro is competing with Weebly, Wix, Squarespace and we try to figure out what's the added value of Vanjaro relative to these sitebuilders. Yes it's based on DNN and you can use DNN modules but how many DNN users/developers will start using Vanjaro? Developers want .Net core and blazer (Oqtane?)

        I know Mandeeps is a very good DNN Vendor so it has a lot of potential. I hope it's gone explode!
        Question is what their business model is? The basics are free but what's their premium model?
        They need a free / open source ecosystem to start with...

          The business model has 2 components:

          1. As they are one of the largest DNN vendors, they benefit from a larger DNN footprint. All content management systems have suffered from decline the last 10 years exept from the Sitebuilders (the Weeblies you mentioned). So, if they succeed in getting more people to use DNN, they are bound to sell more modules, themes and services. 
          2. The other reason why the Sitebuilders are popular is the easy start. Next-next-finish, no upgrade worries, it just works. Of course, you have less freedom but also less fuss. The business model here is https://www.vanjaro.com/pricing
