Our Very First Ultimate Guide — Starting an Online Business in 2020 (for Beginners)

You may have noticed that we’ve been a little absent from posting educational content on our Thrive Themes blog lately.

If you’ve been wondering what happened, not to worry... we didn’t forget about you. ;-)

Our team was actually hard at work on an important content project we think you’re really going to enjoy.

In fact, it’s now time to share the most epic piece of free content we’ve ever created.

The first ever Ultimate Guide from Thrive Themes — built entirely with Thrive Architect of course!

It's a detailed roadmap for aspiring solopreneurs teaching how to bootstrap an online business with very limited resources (a.k.a. time and money).

Did you already start reading this guide? We’d love to know what you think by leaving us a comment at the end of this blog post!

Why We Wrote this Ultimate Business Guide

If you’ve been interested in building an online business, then we’re sure you've already heard that they’re scalable, affordable and can yield high returns.

But amidst the ocean of hype out there promising “overnight success” and — let’s face it — BS advice, how do you really know where to start?

New Thrive Apprentice Feature Makes Course Access Restriction Easy

If you’ve been following Thrive Themes for a while now, then you know we encourage new solopreneurs to create and sell online courses on their WordPress website.

And one of the reasons why we recommend this is because the barriers to get started are so low while the margins on course sales are high.

However, the power behind online courses isn’t limited to just paid products. You can use courses to help grow your audience, build your mailing list and even educate visitors about your brand too!

You can do this by hosting everything from Premium Courses to Lead Magnet Courses to Brand Education Courses using our Thrive Apprentice online course plugin integrated with the SendOwl digital product delivery and payment gateway tool.

But first, let’s look at how these three different types of courses can be used across your online course based business...

Automate Your Online Scheduling Using a 2-Step Lightbox in Thrive Leads

In a previous Thrive Themes blog post, we explained how you can use a pre-designed landing page template to get your new online coaching clients to book their own “free consult” appointments with you.

Now, I thought my tutorial was a pretty slick example of how you can integrate an automated scheduling tool with Thrive Architect.

But after publishing, one of our readers quickly showed us an even more efficient way to do it by adding Thrive Leads to the mix:

Fitness & Nutrition Coach Stephen Box left us an awesome comment about how he automates his new client scheduling using Thrive Leads.

So are you ready to follow Stephen’s lead and learn how to upgrade your New Coaching Client generation page with a Thrive Leads ThriveBox (a popup lightbox that’s triggered on text, image or button click)?

Awesome sauce! Read on...

How To Automate Your Coaching Client Bookings with Thrive Architect

If you run an online coaching business, you know that scheduling new clients can quickly become a logistics nightmare.

First the client reaches out to work with you by email...

...then you have to reply to their inquiry with all your basic explainer info as well as possible times for them to schedule their initial consult call.

But then they respond saying that the times you suggested aren’t possible — and don't offer any alternatives!

Pretty soon, you find yourself in a time consuming game of email ping-pong before the appointment time gets locked down. But of course the inevitable happens...

said client totally forgets about the call and no shows on you: Rinse. Recycle. Repeat.

If you’re an online coach, this sort of scheduling nightmare needs to become a thing of the past, but how?
