The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming for all of us. It's a set of EU laws and they apply to EU citizens. That means that even if your businesses is not in the EU, you're still potentially on the hook, because people from the EU can access your website.
At Thrive Themes, we have been hard at work to help you keep your website GDPR compliant in the easiest and most seamless ways possible.
In this post, you'll discover the GDPR related features that we've already released and get up to date information about the ones we're still working on.
The new European data protection regulations (GDPR) are right around the corner and many website owners are in a panic. There’s been a lot of talk about rules, regulations and hefty fines that await those that don’t comply.

In this post, we’ll take a look at what GDPR actually means for small business entrepreneurs and email marketers. And you’ll discover ways in which you can make your website compliant without sacrificing your visitors’ user experience or your conversion rates.

Ok, let’s juice the goodness out of 2018.
If you’ve been keeping up with internet marketing news lately, you already know that Google’s new Chrome Ad Blocker rules took effect last month on February 15th.
It's almost like Google is expanding their previous "Mobile Friendly" opt-in form rules to now address a broader set of abusive desktop and mobile internet marketing behaviors.
Chrome's new ad blocking rules are specifically taking aim at intrusive and spammy ads from websites that market aggressively and have little respect for quality user experience (UX).
Although some in the internet marketing world are freaking out about these changes, we’re not bothered by them since they are focused primarily on eliminating awful ads...not your opt-in forms.
To get started though, there's a series of not-so-intuitive steps you need to knock out first before the work of crafting your online courses can begin.
We've tried to make each of these steps as intuitive as possible, but integrating with a 3rd party system like SendOwl always poses some limitations. Today's tutorial is here to help you out and make your setup a breeze.
So without further ado, let's get your Thrive Apprentice plugin integrated with SendOwl!
Too many online marketers are still trying (and inevitably failing) to succeed with old-school email marketing.
A lot of email marketing advice is based on outdated methods and most list-building tools have failed to stay up to date with the changing landscape of email marketing.
In today's video, you'll discover the 3 most important things you can do to bring your list building up to date (and the features in Thrive Leads that help you do it).
Have you ever signed up for a free download or trial that promised big benefits, but completely under delivered?
Or worse yet, the whole thing turned out to be just a thinly disguised sales pitch?
You’ve been burned before so you can't really trust a website screaming “download this free awesome thing!” is actually going to deliver, right?
Well, your own visitors probably feel the same.
To be a successful marketer in the current digital climate, you need to understand that your visitors are just as skeptical as you are.
To avoid stinking of desperation and false promises, there’s another type of content marketing you can use to earn your visitor’s trust, leave them hungry for your content, and eager to hand over their email address.
But it takes some finesse to do this right so let me show you how...
According to MarketingDonut, 92% of salesmen give up after their 4th sales call, while 80% of their prospects say “No” four times before they say “Yes”.
What does that tell you?
That sales don’t happen instantaneously. Especially in the online world. You can’t just display a “Buy Now” button on your site and expect your sales to go through the roof…
You need to take your visitors on a journey, which some online marketers call a funnel.
In a sales funnel, you'll lead your visitors through four stages before they ultimately decide to become your customers. And each of these stages is as important as the other.
So fasten your seatbelt, because we’re about to look at each part of this journey together so you'll then be able to turn your online visitors into longtime customers!
