Start Collecting Leads Even Before Your Site is Ready (Including Templates)

You bought your domain name, set up a hosting account and installed WordPress. Technically, you have a website... but you don't have any of the actual content ready yet.

Luckily, while you're working on getting that conversion focused website up and running you can already start collecting leads.

Let me show you how to do this with the new "Coming Soon" landing pages included in Thrive Architect.

We Love to Hate Lightboxes… But Should We Hate Lazy Marketers Instead?

Tony clearly has a problem with lightboxes and the 69 thumbs-up reactions on his Facebook comment prove he isn't the only one.

Whenever lightboxes or "pop-ups" are mentioned, you'll find reactions like these:

“Lightboxes are annoying!”
“When I see a lightbox I simply leave”
“You’ve lost ALL credibility”

But let me tell you a (data backed) story…

The Perfect Website Template for a Local Business

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.

If you're a freelancer, looking for a job or simply learning all the ins and outs of Thrive Architect you're in for a treat.

In this landing page from scratch video, I'll guide you through setting up a résumé (or curriculum vitae) one-page website.

You'll discover:

  • How to set up your page correctly so that you'll never to the same work twice.
  • How to create a clean, graphical look with the smart use of borders, boxes and columns.
  • How to create a good looking header section for desktop, tablet AND mobile.

Plus, if you don't feel like creating the page from scratch, you can load the template shown here, directly in Thrive Architect.

Will Shaming Your Visitors for Closing a Lightbox Increase Opt-ins?

"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!
