Creating online courses on your website can be an intimidating task.
With lessons to plan, visual, audio and text media to craft as well as checklists and course workbooks to create, there’s a lot to be done before launch day.
To do all that, you'll need to focus on creating great content instead of wasting precious time worrying about how it all looks. That's not to say design isn't important, it's just not what you should be spending very much time on.
That’s why we just added 14 new content box templates to Thrive Architect’s Styled Box element to help you achieve your course design objectives.
Designing cover art for any online product can be a real hassle.
Hiring designers, waiting on rounds of revisions, and optimizing image resolutions and file sizes all takes time and money.
And what happens when you need to make minor modifications to images? Turns out it’s not so minor after all.
You’ll either have to pay designers again just to make the small tweaks for you or load up Photoshop to do them all yourself.
Pretty tedious, right?
Well, this post is going to save you time and money by showing you exactly how to build an attractive eBook cover in just a few minutes using nothing but Thrive Architect.

But is that really all you can use Ecourses for to help build your online business?

Ponder these song lyrics for a moment:
If language is sound, and sound is music, well then that sounds like music is language.
But if music is sound, and sound is language, then that means language is music.
That logic brings your attention to the similarities between learning music and learning language, right?
Because when you think about it, most people find learning music much less intimidating than learning a new language. In fact, why are we not all learning foreign languages through songs rather than sounds?!
But if such logic is sound, is it sound enough to grow a profitable online language business on?
Actually, it definitely takes more than clever lyrics to make an info-product venture succeed.

Sounds crazy, but you don't want to increase your site's traffic...
What you really want is to boost your site's value per visitor.
That's the metric you must pay attention to if you're building a conversion focused online business.
While most Search Engine Optimization (SEO) gurus teach all kinds of ways to boost your "traffic", what you should focus on is attracting the right kind of traffic (i.e. visitors with a higher conversion potential) whenever someone mentions "traffic" to you.
With that preamble in mind, I want to teach you a basic keyword research strategy for your online business in this post.
Is a lack of web experience keeping you from making progress in your online business?
If so, this story is for you.
Although you may think it takes a web design background, a team of professional designers, and years of copywriting experience to make money online, that's just a tidy excuse to keep yourself from trying.
Recently, we released our new Symbols Feature for Thrive Architect.
The Symbols Feature is a design component that allows you to have multiple synchronized instances of a “thing” you design for your website.
What’s that mean exactly? Modifying one instance of a Symbol will automatically update all the other instances of that Symbol – instantly – across your site.
Color me impressed, but it looks like you've got a product to sell on your website now!
That's fantastic, but hold up a sec before you publish your "Buy Now" button...
Even though you can ditch your clunky pricing table plugin to use Thrive Architect's fully customizable pricing table element instead, let’s pump the brakes to discuss what makes a good pricing table in the first place.
I know you want to jump straight into building an eye catching one with tons of fancy features — like toggle switches and buy buttons that POP — but you should learn how the conversion focused nuts and bolts of pricing tables go together first and work your way up to the visual flare from there.
Let’s say – like most people in the online business world – you didn’t go to college to get a fancy marketing or business degree.
In fact, you bloomed a little later when it came to taking your first steps as a solopreneur.
Perhaps you studied a completely different subject at university, worked for years in the corporate world or earned your living practicing a vocation of some kind.
At first glance, people might think such a backstory would disqualify you from becoming a solopreneur...but they'd be wrong.
