Get Amazing WordPress Themes:
7 Irresistible Reasons To Move To Thrive Themes (And Never Go Back)
1. It Starts With Great Design
So the designs are:
– very simple in terms of layout
– with easy to read and larger fonts and lots of white space (have you noticed how easy this is to read?)
– have simple and clear navigation
All of these kinds of best practices for web design lead to better user experience and more conversions/sales.
2. Focus Areas for High Conversions
And that is just the beginning. They also provide you with focus areas, which are specific optin forms or calls to
action you can place in prominent locations on your website.
Just like the big guns in online marketing, you will notice they all have a homepage focus area (aka feature box or
hero section) designed to get you to do one thing.
Derek Halpern, a big tester of such things has this as his number one place to put an optin on your website, and got
a 51.7% optin increase on DIYThemes with this method.
Takeaway: You should be doing this too.
And with Thrive Themes this is built in, so you just design one and say where you want it (top of homepage, blog
3. Landing Pages Built-in
Thrive Landing Page Templates
Each theme also comes with pre-built landing pages, as well as the 80 or more that you get with Thrive Content
Builder (comes with the Themes).
So you can add/build landing pages for almost anything, in minutes, make them look stunning and designed to suit
to your theme.
4. Thrive Leads For Optins Everywhere
The Thrive team have not stopped there, you also get Thrive Leads with your membership, so you have the ability
to add optins or calls to action almost anywhere else on the website.
thrive-leads-2step-2So you can do all the usual optins you should expect from a modern WordPress plugin:
Popups (exit intent, timed, scroll triggered)
2-step optins (triggered from links, images or buttons)
2 stage optins (like Neil Patel made famous)
Header Ribbons (like the hellobar)
And a whole lot more including A/B split testing to make your optins convert even better.
5. Thrive Clever Widgets (Show Widgets When & Where You Want)
Another recent innovation from the Thrive team is the clever widgets. Sure there are other plugins that do the
same, but it shows they know how useful it is.
Why is this plugin useful?
Instead of displaying the same things on the same pages, it makes far more sense to show targeted content to an
That means content that is far more likely to convert and sell.
optin boxes in your sidebar that relate to the current blog posts
ads that sell products related to the current topic
even posts or guides you have that are more specific
And these are just some ideas off the top of my head – but it means in the end more conversions, optins and sales!
And then there are all the other plugins you can throw away…
6. Blazing Social Media Buttons
Thrive Themes Social Media ButtonsThis is a more recent addition (summer 2015) to Thrive Themes, which shows
that these guys are constantly improving too!
Now you have some of the best social media buttons around built right into the themes.
So now, you don’t need a separate social media plugin anymore.
These buttons have been built to be head and shoulders ahead of most existing plugins out there too, so they:
– load fast because they do not wait for social media sites to finish loading (like most plugins do)
– are designed to match the themes, (not look like random buttons attached to your website like many share
– are mobile responsive, so they work on all devices (not more disappearing buttons on a mobile!)
– are designed to get more shares – fade-ins when user scrolls drawing attention
– have share specific title, image and description so your social share is optimized (not just the default from the
Note: the only thing keeping me from switching this feature on is that it does not have a separate Pinterest image
for sharing (yet). So I use Social Warfare for this.
7. Image Optimization For Speed
As many of you know, images are one of the most important things on your website. Get them wrong, and you site
will load like a snail!
That is why image optimization is so important and people, including myself, are using a whole bunch of plugins to
achieve awesome page load times!
With Thrive Themes, they have taken the best image optimizer and built it right into their themes. So goodbye
image optimizer plugins!
All you need to do is switch it on and all your image are reduced in size upon upload, sometimes up to 70-80%. The
optimizer, Kraken, is that good!!!
