Let’s face it. It’s easy to get derailed when trying to build a website for your business. Hell, it’s easy to get derailed at any point of your business. (I got derailed just trying to write this post…)
In August, we talked about one of the most common reasons we hit the brakes early in the site building process, the logo, and what to do about it. It's also useful to be aware of the fundamental web design principles before we'd start building a site from scratch.
Another early roadblock new entrepreneurs run into, picking website color schemes.
And if you’re one of the lucky ones who spent way more time than you needed researching, iterating, thinking about, pulling your hair out about, etc,. your logo, you were sure to come across copious amounts of information about how to choose the best color scheme for your brand.
If you haven’t noticed already, every single page of your website presents an opportunity.
But what about thank you pages?
If you’re thinking, “They signed up! Oh boy, I’ve got them now,” while rubbing your hands together and mu-ha-ha-ing like an evil genius… Come on now, I know you’re better than that! (And you know, maybe don’t be evil.)
But if you’re also thinking you can slap up any old page and throw the words “Thank You” on it and be done with it, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity.
By not optimizing your thank you page, you lose an amazing chance to build strong relationships with each one of your new customers and subscribers.
What does the Australian film industry, Christopher Nolan, and Thrive Themes have in common?
The focus of today’s story, Bradley Stevens aka Brad!
We all have a dream. And sometimes that dream leads us to a different dream which is exactly what led Brad from the stage to film to entrepreneur.
So follow along as I tell the tale of Brad as he moved from creating characters to creating a business to learn how you, too, can go from total newbie to an entrepreneurial star.
Have you ever invested your time and energy reading through a website only to find there was no way to get in touch with anyone when you had a question?
Frustrating, isn’t it?
Surely, you’re not frustrating your own online visitors like that… right?
While the contact page may not be the most important page on your site, it’s still pretty damn important. In fact, it’s considered one of the four most important pages on a website along with the home, about us, and blog pages.
But there’s more to it than giving people a way to get in touch with you. Like the other important pages on your site, there are tips, tricks, and best practices you should follow when crafting your high performing contact page.
In July 2018, we introduced the new contact form feature in Thrive Architect along with four tips to help you create better contact forms.
And in March 2020, with the release of Thrive Theme Builder, we’ve made it even easier to integrate contact forms anywhere on your website. You can add a beautifully designed contact form to side bars, footers, 404 pages, or anywhere on your site.
Today, we’re going to show you even more contact page best practices along with some good and bad examples for you to study.
