By popular demand, we continue the landing page from scratch series and this time we'll create a visually stunning homepage.
As usual you'll see all the steps from start to finish and discover some insider tricks on how to use Thrive Content Builder like how to create a beautiful blog post grid that updates automatically (at 15:33).
In this video, we replicate the homepage from Craftsy, an online learning platform for handy crafts. Their homepage design reflects the creative vibe of the website by using full width images but is also highly conversion focused with highlighted promo codes, links to important content and an opt-in form.
This is exactly the type of homepage we like: original, good looking AND conversion focused. Check out the video to see how it's done.
You receive an email, click on the link and you see...
An opt-in form.
Really? How annoying is that?
They contacted you through email, they have your contact information. Why would you have to do the effort to opt-in AGAIN?
Click. Window closed. Conversion lost.
As a subscriber you understand how irritating this is, but as a marketer you've probably done this to your own subscribers at least a few times. Because sometimes you want your subscribers to opt-in again, no?
Well, yes and no.
You want the RESULT of your subscribers opting in again. You want them to be added to a different list, receive a series of follow-up emails, get tagged, etc.
Good news, you can have the best of both worlds!

What's THE conversion goal of your website?
Difficult question, right?
The conversion goal for first time visitors would probably be to subscribe to your email list.
But once they are a subscriber, that conversion goal changes.
You no longer want them to become a subscriber, you want them to take the next step and become a customer!
And this is where most websites miss out. They only optimize for subscribers, not for customers.
