Which of These 15 Thrive Symbols Examples (+ Bonus Templates) Is Right for Your Online Business?

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.

From Zero To Logo: Getting a Logo Design for Your Website. Fast.

If you're building or rebranding a new website, I'm willing to bet you'll waste a lot of time on this common stumbling block:

Logos.

Unfortunately, this is what the process of starting an online business often looks like:

  • Step 1: Come up with a business idea & name
  • Step 2: Build a basic website as your 'hub'.
  • Step 3: Waste a billion hours thinking about your logo, trying different designs, speaking with designers, trying to do it yourself, looking at fiverr, googling for solutions, etc.
  • Step 4: ...

But you never got to step 4 because you’re still looking at logo designs and getting jealous of someone else’s, aren’t you?

It's hard, right? You want your logo to look pretty but professional, sophisticated but simple, elegant, honest, bold… aaaargh! Face it! You don’t know what you want… because you don’t even know what makes a logo good.

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.

Anatomy of the Perfect Contact Page (With Examples)

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.

Today, we’re going to show you even more contact page best practices along with some good and bad examples for you to study. 

New Font Awesome Icons in Thrive Architect

The Icon element in Thrive Architect now features a set of 3600+ icons that you can start using on your website right away!

The new icons are part of the Font Awesome set.

If you’re not familiar with Font Awesome, it's a vast collection of icons where you can find pretty much anything from popular logo icons to more common icons to use on your website.

Without Thrive Architect, you only have free access to around 1200 icons from the Font Awesome set.

To access the other icons from the set, you would have to pay extra.

However, with the Icon element in Thrive Architect, you have full access to the all the 3600+ Font Awesome icons!
