Thrive Architect has a shiny new feature. And it's pretty dang shiny.
How shiny you ask?
Even shinier than this new testimonial template you now have access to:
Best part of the testimonials goes here...
Display testimonials here and make them more skimmable by adding a teaser or the best part from the testimonial as a headline. A good testimonial can make all the difference to your conversion rates.

The best kinds of testimonials are...
The best kinds of testimonials are ones that tell a small story and include specific details. This is much more powerful than a generic testimonial that simply say "I love this product!" or something similarly vague.

You see, we haven't just added a bunch of new testimonial templates.
We haven't just restored all of the original Thrive Content Builder testimonial designs.
We've created a whole new function in Thrive Architect that allows us to deliver new designs to you instantly.
We've done this by changing where the templates for the testimonial element are saved. Now the designs are pulled from the cloud, rather than from inside the plugin.
Oh Wow, Sounds So... Boring
I know the "from the cloud" vs. "from the plugin" doesn't sound that exciting, but it does have some pretty amazing benefits for you.
A Whole Bunch of New Testimonial Designs
You now have access to 35 different testimonial designs in the testimonial element - with many more to come.
Here's a sneak peak at what's available:

Another Step Towards Universal Design Elements
The second reason this change is so exciting is because it builds on our mission to make it as easy as possible to build universal pages and funnels with our templates.
We started with Page Sets - similarly designed page templates that you can use for every step of a list building or sales funnel to give a consistent look throughout.
One of the 'Bright' landing page sets
You can see more examples of these sets in our Landing Page Gallery.
The design style for the sets continue through to Thrive Leads, where you can get matching lightboxes.
'LP Bright Lead Generation' Lightbox
And now in Thrive Architect with matching testimonials.
'Bright Full Width' testimonial template
This makes it a lot easier to mix and match elements to create the page you want, while maintaining a universal look and great design.
Bored or Excited - Let Us Know
Does the idea of a template cloud excite you as much as it does us?
Leave a comment below about what you think of the new designs, as well as any suggestions on testimonial designs you'd like to see.
You all are amazing. I love having this way of distributing templates, and so easily because of the cloud-oriented approach.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for creating such useful and effective tools for us.
Hi Daniel – Yep we’re pretty excited about the change. It makes it a lot easier for us to push out new designs.
Very cool, looks like this will be great as more templates and sets are added!
I’ll be on the designers to keep it up Will 😉
This is actually great. I’ve wanted other testimony boxes in the past. So, this is a good feature update.
Very timely then, good to hear
Hi Stephanie, is there any way all of these work with Ovation too – ie from the cloud rather than the standard templates?
This is a different system to the Thrive Architect elements, but you make a good point that expanded designs should be available in Thrive Ovation as well. I’ll see what I can put together with the team 🙂
Love it. Quick question – is this implemented on Thrive Ovation as well?
I’ll 2nd that…. ovation styales are looking a little tired all off a sudden.
We can certainly aim to update some of the designs in Thrive Ovation too (if that was a subtle hint 😉
Hi Stephanie – yes – and really I meant the ability to have cloud-based, dynamic templates in Ovation, rather than a hardcoded finite selection. The look and feel would be a secondary benefit from my perspective…
Delighted to see this improvement – Thank you
Clever stuff and really really useful
The Template Cloud exciting… hell yeah!
When you add a great editing tool SET (more than just a page builder) along with the possibility of making websites from a “set” with common format instead of a “theme” the possibilities are endless….
Can’t wait for the “thrive plan” eventualise…. piece by piece… it’s coming.
Imagine being able tell a client they don’t need a theme…. thrive has it all..
I gather there will be the ability to add complete “sets” as pages like the current theme template pages?
Yes with the new theme builder we have something similar to this planned. It’s going to be pretty game changing…
Happy there’s someone to share our enthusiasm for the ‘thrive plan’ with 😀
This is what I was looking for..
I am a big fan of Thrive Architect Plugin and always recommend it to my blogger friends.
One again thanks for new designs.
Waiting for more awesome updates.

Thanks Sumit, glad you’re happy with the improvements 🙂
Awesome Stuff great to have these templates back
You guys are just brilliant in creating ingenious features to save us time and make our designs look great while increasing our conversions. Keep it up!
And please keep creating more, newer and updated design templates across the board. I am NOT a designer so I always get ideas from templates and re-use sections accordingly and it makes me look like a brilliant designer.
However, Elementor’s global sections and ability to add multiple templates to a page is very nice. Please give us the same… the ability to save global sections and add template sections or entire templates, multiple templates, to a page.
Then, we can delete the sections we don’t want, leaving the ones we do want. This ability and it saves me a ton of time, when creating websites, and I can get the exact sections and design I want and I look brilliant to my clients :).
I of course use Thrive Themes for landing pages and funnels. TT also makes me look brilliant, but I want to look even more billiant and speed up my workflow.
Keep up the good work
Thanks for the well outlined suggestions. All very valid and most are already in development 🙂
I want to put a testimonial slider in my page.
Do you have the option for same or I will have to download and install a testimonial plugin for this?
