How To Use Membership Plugins With Thrive Apprentice Courses

If you use a membership plugin to protect content on your WordPress site, you might be wondering:

“Can I protect Thrive Apprentice courses with my membership tool?”

You may be surprised to know that Apprentice will already work with many membership pluginsdepending on how they are setup.

We already have deep integrations with MemberMouse, MemberPress, Wishlist Member — and our integration with SendOwl lets you bypass the need for membership tools entirely...

...But this doesn't mean that Thrive Apprentice won't work with your membership plugin!

In this video tutorial, you'll discover a setup that works for other popular tools such as:

  • s2Member
  • Restrict Content Pro
  • Active Member 360
  • Ultimate Membership Pro
  • Memberium
  • aMember

...and many more.

New Post List Element Added to Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect just got better.

If you’ve just updated and are using it, you might have noticed something new at the bottom of your elements panel:

You'll find the new Post List element at the bottom in Thrive Architect

You may remember that we previously had a Post Grid element, but just improved it by adding a world of front-end editing and logic rules. We also renamed it as the Post List.

With this element, you can dynamically display a custom list of your posts anywhere on your site that will auto-populate when you publish new content. It’s a great way to keep your website visitors around by promoting content similar to what they originally came for.

This is also a glimpse into the technology we’re developing for Thrive Theme Builder… but it’s already available in Thrive Architect right now! 

Check out the video and read the post below to learn how to use this new element to bring unbeatable customization to your pages and posts.

From Zero To Logo: Getting a Text Logo Design for Your Website. Fast.

If you're building or rebranding a new website, I'm willing to bet you'll waste a lot of time on a common stumbling block: the logo.

After coming up with a business idea and building a website, people tend to waste a billion hours thinking about your logo, trying different designs, speaking with designers, etc.

It's hard, right? You want your logo to look pretty but professional, sophisticated but simple, elegant, honest, bold… aaaargh! Face it! You don’t know what you want… because you don’t even know what makes a logo good.

It’s time to approach this the Thrive Themes way. In this post, I'm going to show you how to land versatile text logos fast so you can get it done and start working on the things that actually make you money.

The Perfect Low Priced Online Course Sales Page

“Aaargh!” Ctrl + Z.

I had revised my first sales page over 80 times and still hated it!

So many unanswered questions swirled in my head because I had no idea what even made a sales page that converts.

  • Should the headline be the product name? Uhhh…. *shrug*
  • Do I need to move those product images further down the page? Let’s try… nope, that’s worse!
  • Where do I list the price? Maybe the top- No! The bottom. Maybe the middle…?

All this stress, uncertainty and time lost… just to sell a mere $50 course?!

Now many years later and wiser, I’ve put together the ultimate research article of sales pages for low-priced online courses, so you don’t have to go through the frustrations I did.

This article even comes with a brand new sales page blueprint designed for selling low-to-mid priced online courses for between $19 and $250. Read on!

A visitor arrives at your website to read an article. 3 weeks later you receive a payment notification telling you that they just bought the most highly priced product you sell.

In this post, we give you a rapid-fire round-up of all the new features and updates that you might have missed for Thrive Architect.

How to Create a Seamless Checkout Experience with Thrive Architect and Thrive Cart

Are you losing customers at the checkout without even knowing it?

Any friction in your online checkout experience will impact your conversions regardless of how convincing your sales page is. 

But creating a seamless sales funnel isn’t always that easy, and often requires integrating multiple additional plugins or tools that won't necessarily play nicely together.

In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a seamless sales funnel that uses a popular product stack, Thrive Themes with Thrive Cart, and how you can deploy the combo to increase your conversions

The Backwards Pricing Principle for Online Course Creators

How much should you sell your online course for?

This is a difficult question that most online course creators will spend far too much time on.

Choosing a price for your online course is complicated. Too high and you mightn’t get sales, but too low will undervalue your product and limit your earning capacity.

When the ‘cost-per-unit’ of your product is nearly non-existent, how do you choose the right price? It’s not like each new student costs you extra in physical manufacturing costs.

Let’s have a look at some pricing psychology - the Thrive Themes way - to figure out what you should charge for your online course.
