Rapid Course Sales Funnel Building

Because Thrive Apprentice is just one of the tools included in Thrive Suite, you have the power to rapidly assemble your online course sales funnels. Pick a sales page template from Thrive Architect’s numerous Smart Landing Page template sets — online course specific templates included! — and fully customize the tutorialized demo content to show off what your prospects will be learning. You can add a Course List Element to preview your lessons, a Course Resource List Element to show off your course add-ons, and so much more! When you combine your Thrive Architect sales pages with Thrive Ultimatum countdown timers to create scarcity and urgency, and Thrive Leads opt-in forms to build your mailing list, you have everything necessary to build conversion-focused, student-getting sales funnels with Thrive Suite.   

Course List Element 

Say goodbye to the days of wishing you could customize your course lists, because when the Thrive Apprentice update drops you’re going to get tons of new Course List Templates and total design freedom over every aspect of your course lists! You'll now be able to display an elegant list of your courses anywhere on your site. The Course List Element works like any Thrive Themes element: Drop the Course List Element anywhere on your Thrive Site, pick a template, watch it Thrive-o-matically update to your brand's colors with smart site technology, and then customize away to your heart's content!

Lesson Page Customization

Your lesson pages are where all the action is and where all your hard work comes into focus for your students. They bought your course, now it’s time to deliver the goods! That’s why it’s so important to have total control over how you present your lessons and brand. And, with this latest mic-drop in this Thrive Apprentice update series, we’re excited to announce that coming soon to your WordPress courses is total design freedom over all your lesson pages! Get new lesson page templates, drag and drop control over your content, and new ways to display your lessons, resources, multimedia, course progress, and more! 

Course Overview Page Customization

In the past customizing your Course Overview Page could be a massive headache. No longer when this update goes live! Your Course Overview Page is the first page your new students will see when they access your course for the first time, so you want to make a great first impression. You’ll get professionally designed templates as a starting point, or you can create your perfect Course Overview Page from scratch. Create as many Course Overview Page templates as you want, save them for later reuse, and get total design freedom over every element. 

School Homepage Customization 

Finally, get absolute control over your course homepage with Thrive Apprentice and take advantage of our new School Homepage Templates. Choose a course homepage template you like, upload it to your site, and start customizing your design with total freedom over every element. With all new course content elements like Lesson Lists, Course Lists, and Lesson Resource Lists, you’ll be able to design the perfect homepage to show off your online course business. 

Header & Footer Customization 

You’ll now get access to multiple header and footer template designs, be able to add them to your course environment with one click, and visually customize them to your heart's content. Using the Quick Start Setup Wizard you can choose your header and footer design during your initial course site setup (or swap them out at any time!), then customize them any way you want. 

Course Setup Quick Start Wizard

We’ve brought the awesome power of our Quick Start Wizard to Thrive Apprentice. The Course Setup Quick Start Wizard will guide you through a series of steps to get your online school quickly built on Thrive Apprentice. In just a few clicks select your logo, brand colors, homepage template, course page templates, headers and footers (and more) and you’re ready to go. 

Thrive Apprentice Template Dashboard

It’s now easier and faster than ever to create and customize your courses layout with Thrive Apprentice. When you open the new Template Dashboard you’ll find a collection of professionally designed templates for each of your course pages: your lesson, school homepage, course overview and module overview templates. From here you can go in and edit each one of these templates into the smallest details to create the visual style of your course environment.

The ALL NEW Thrive Apprentice Design Tab Dashboard

The new Design Tab inside the Thrive Apprentice Dashboard allows you to select your course "skin", set your course typographies, edit your different course templates, and walk through the brand new Thrive Apprentice Quick Start Wizard — all from a single convenient access point.
