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...

New Post List Element Added to Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect just got better.

If you’ve just updated and are using it, you might have noticed something new at the bottom of your elements panel:

You'll find the new Post List element at the bottom in Thrive Architect

You may remember that we previously had a Post Grid element, but just improved it by adding a world of front-end editing and logic rules. We also renamed it as the Post List.

With this element, you can dynamically display a custom list of your posts anywhere on your site that will auto-populate when you publish new content. It’s a great way to keep your website visitors around by promoting content similar to what they originally came for.

This is also a glimpse into the technology we’re developing for Thrive Theme Builder… but it’s already available in Thrive Architect right now! 

Check out the video and read the post below to learn how to use this new element to bring unbeatable customization to your pages and posts.
