New Template for Local Businesses: The One Page Website

As a local business, you need "Google insurance".

You want to control what someone sees when entering your business name in a search engine. 

The only way to control your web presence is through your own website.

But you don't need all the bells and whistles an online business needs. You need a simple and clean solution to show off what you're doing, how customers can get in touch and provide some social proof.

That's exactly what our new template is made for! You can find it now in the Thrive Architect templates library.

Will Clickshaming Increase Your Opt-in Rates?

"No thanks I'd rather pay full price", "No I don't like traffic" or my personal favorite: "No, I want to continue dwelling in my mom's basement". 

All of these are statements to click if you want to close a lightbox without opting in...

A while ago we started seeing those rude, passive aggressive and sometimes flat out cruel links everywhere. It got so common there's even a term for using these: Clickshaming.

By writing an undesirable result as the "No thanks" link, the goal is to shame visitors out of clicking (and into subscribing).

But do they work? Do they increase conversions? We decided to test it out and the results may surprise you....

A/B Test Your Landing Page Lightboxes

In Thrive Architect you have a wide choice of lead generation landing pages and without needing any other tools you get access to some pretty advanced list building features like 2-step opt-in forms and exit intent lightboxes.

But that's just scratching the surface.

Did you know that you can combine the power of Thrive Leads with Thrive Architect to get detailed statistics and A/B test opt-in lightboxes on your landing pages?

Let me show you!

How to Build Your List With Thrive Architect

When beauty meets business...

Lately we've been posting a lot about the design features of Thrive Architect and while in awe of the Photoshop worthy capabilities, it's easy to forget that the plugin has some really impressive list building features under the hood!

If you're serious about building an online business, you need to build a mailing list and Thrive Architect is the only visual editor that gives you the power to create lead generation forms, 2-step opt-in forms and exit intent lightboxes without needing any other add-on or tool.

Let me show you!

Create a Pro Looking Hero Image Header

I'm sure you've seen them around... Those professional looking header sections with a big "hero" image and a title text on top.

All the pros are using this layout on their website. 

But somehow, when you try this on your own homepage, it never looks quite as professional.

Let me show you step by step how to create these gorgeous looking header sections and how to make them look good on desktop AND on mobile. 

Turn Mobile Visitors into Leads With Mobile Specific Opt-in Forms

Mobile website traffic is increasing and will not go down anytime soon. So the question is: how do you convert those visitors into leads?

The answer is most certainly not:

  • Showing them a lightbox so big they have to scroll to find the opt-in or close button.
  • Not showing them any opt-in forms at all.
  • Shrinking your opt-in forms to fit smaller screens, making them difficult to read and impossible to fill out.

The real solution you need is to use mobile specific opt-in forms.

6 Examples of Using Interactive Elements on your Website to Improve Visitors’ Experience

Opening a link is only the beginning of what can happen when a visitor clicks on a button, text or image. 

There are so many more things that could occur. 

You could show them additional instructions, a light box, a video ...

This is actually very easy to do with Thrive Architect, but we understand that you might not have time to explore and discover exactly what's possible and how to go about it.

That's why we created this master post to show you some nifty things you can do that you probably didn’t even realize were possible.

How to Set Up a Complete List Building Funnel

In today's video, follow along and watch over my shoulder as I build a complete lead generation funnel from scratch.

And it's not just any old funnel, it's one that's optimized for high conversions and built to give your new subscribers a satisfying and smooth signup process. First impressions count and with this method, you'll make a shining first impression!

Guarantee Boxes, CTA Elements and Pricing Tables in Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect, our new visual editor that replaces Thrive Content Builder allows you to create just about any layout you can think off. 

That's why in the first release, we did not include compound elements like pricing tables, CTA and guarantee boxes. These elements are basically just a group of other elements such as columns, boxes, text, images and lists. 

But we do understand that it is easier to simply select a template rather than building one from scratch. That's why we're planning on bringing back these elements ASAP. 

And because we know yesterday is better than tomorrow, we recreated all the existing elements ourselves so that you can simple save them as a content template and use them anywhere on your site in seconds.

Let me show you how.
