Our History

Thrive Themes was founded in early 2013 by the ideal match: marketing expert Shane Melaugh and tech fanatic Paul McCarthy. But their journeys before they met weren't always ideal.

Shane Melaugh

Everything Shane knows about marketing comes from the many years of creating his own businesses. 

He attempted and failed several times, but each time he failed, he tried to do it better the next time.

As he started figuring out the psychology behind selling, marketing became his true passion.

Shane is hungry to improve everything that falls into his hands. Every day, he tries to be better than the day before - and he applies the same principle to his business. 

He was already extremely driven and eager to have a successful online business. His head was full of product ideas. 

However, he didn't have the technical background to make it happen.

Paul McCarthy

Paul was lucky enough to get his hands on a computer and an internet connection during his lost teen years.

This misspent youth consisting of coding HTML in Notepad, at a time when marquees and flashing animations were still in fashion, led to him creating a series of failed online projects. These failures, however painful at the time, taught him some very valuable lessons.

Paul's natural tendency was to spend all his time creating and coding without focusing on the marketing and selling side of the equation.  This meant spending thousands of hours on projects that barely saw the light of day and that nobody knew about.  

It became increasingly obvious...Paul needed to either develop some marketing chops himself...or find someone who could sell!

How Thrive Themes Was Born

In 2013, Paul and Shane were working hard on their own online projects individually, but something always seemed to be missing.

While Paul knew how to build killer software but never really managed to deliver it to potential customers; Shane had extensive marketing experience, but his lack of coding skills stopped him from building what he already had in his head.

They both needed someone to complement their skills. 

They found each other on a popular marketing forum.

After their first Skype call, they realized they shared the same values and principles to create a business.

They met up in Europe and started working on several products together, such as Hybrid Connect, Viral Quiz Builder and WP Sharely.

For each product, they wanted to create a fully conversion optimized website with a good sales page. However, the available WordPress plugins and themes weren't made for that.

This showed another limitation of the WordPress platform, and soon they realised that if they have this frustration, other online businesses may have it, too. 

This is where it all begun. They created the first WYSIWYG editor for WordPress that can easily be used by the less tech-savvy to post content quickly and creatively. 

With this visual editor, Thrive Themes was born.

What Happened Ever Since

Since the first version of Thrive Visual Editor was launched (that we now call Thrive Architect), the company has gone through significant improvements.

Soon, the first conversion-focused Thrive themes were released and the Thrive Themes team started growing rapidly. In 2016 alone, the company released 3 new plugins.

The first products have also been constantly updated. Now it literally takes minutes to turning your ideas into good looking and highly functioning pages.

Thrive Themes is improving every day, attempting to be light years ahead of its competitors.
