which "drag and drop" website builder?

i run about 5 websites/fossils and its time to update them all .i'm looking to get a lifetime subscription to one quality service with drag and drop/page building functionality, and never look back.

i have done a BIT of code and CSS before, but i really don't want to deal with that any more. there are a lot of page builders on the market now, and i'm wondering which one is the best choice for my needs/abilities. it would be nice to be able to build and design my own themes, but that's not really part of the plan. i want to 1) develop my own sites and 2) offer basic web design services for others eventually.

option 1: elegant themes DIVI - $225 lifetime subscription, on discount. this one is probably not as customizable as the others (without diving into code) but it otherwise seems super easy to use.

option 2: genesis framework - $350 lifetime subscription. this one probably offers a bit more flexibility, but requiring code to really get the best out it?

i've seen a few other page building options, such as headway, themify, beaver, etc.

advice?

    Learn your trade first then think about packing that up as a service.

    In terms of a good pre-packaged website builder I'd start with http://www.semplicelabs.com

    I just answered the same in another thread but I've recently been using Elementor. Until recently I'd have said to definitely go with Beaver Builder. It's really lightweight and very well supported. Elementor is newer but it's totally free and I like it a lot better. It's more intuitive and friendly, with better styling settings.

    Pair it with GeneratePress premium and you have a winning combo.

    No idea how people are still using Weebly - I've yet to see one work on mobile.

    Anyone know what Wix is or how many people it caters for?
    I'd be interested to find out if it is very simple to create professional and beautiful looking websites with absolutely no creative limit, and if it is probably everything I need to get my business up and running – with the relative ease of drag-and-drop?
