It's simple: the more people on your mailing list actually open your emails and click on the links inside, the more valuable the list is.

In today's video, I share my personally tried and tested method for ensuring highly engaged email subscribers before they even sign up for my list. Sound strange? Watch the video to see the exact method I use.

The Use and Abuse of Animations on Websites

Update

Thrive Content Builder and Thrive Landing pages have been replaced by Thrive Architect, which now has 271 pre-designed page templates and you can preview them all in our landing pages gallery.

Today's video relates to one of the features in the Content Builder. However, just like with my post about progress bars and counters, this video is more of a "how not to" than a "how to".

Watch the video to learn the 3 things you must know before using any animated elements on your site.​

A Page and its Purpose: When to Use Landing Pages and When to Use Themes

Update

Thrive Content Builder and Thrive Landing pages have been replaced by Thrive Architect, which now has 271 pre-designed page templates and you can preview them all in our landing pages gallery.

With our new Landing Pages feature, it's easier than ever to create conversion optimized pages... which might lead to the question: do you even need a theme anymore (especially considering that we'll continue adding new page templates for different purposes)?

In this post, you'll discover the difference between landing pages and theme pages, so you'll know exactly when to use which, for the best results.

Cloning Posts & Pages with 1 Click

Since day one, Thrive Themes have featured a great time-saving addition that you might have missed up until now. The feature in question is one click cloning.

In this post, you'll discover how the feature works and see some examples of how you can use it to your advantage.

Note: the feature shown here is a theme feature. It is only available when you have a Thrive Theme installed. If you use Thrive Architect or other plugins made by Thrive Themes, but a different theme, you won't see the "clone" link as shown below.

How NOT to Use Progress Bars & Counters

This post is a public service announcement. We must stop the widespread abuse of progress bars and animated counters and only YOU can make a difference!

We recently introduced progress bars, animated counters and fill counters as new design elements (short codes) in all our themes. These elements can be useful additions to a conversion-focused website, but they can also be horribly mis-used. In fact, I have so far almost exclusively seen really, really bad examples of how to implement these elements on sites and landing pages.

Watch the video below to see the common mistakes you need to avoid (and what to do instead):

Seamless Short Codes in the Content Builder

Thrive Content Builder comes loaded with an ever growing number of elements that you can use to create rich, engaging and high-converting posts and pages. But what if you want to add an element from outside the Content Builder, such as a short code provided by your theme or a different plugin?

While Content Builder has always worked with short codes, in our latest update, we’ve improved the way you can add short code elements to your content. Watch this video to see how the new feature works:

Add Urgency to Your Landing Pages With the Countdown Timer Element

Update

The basic countdown feature shown in this post is still available in Thrive Content Builder. In addition, you can now also get a complete and highly advanced scarcity marketing suite with Thrive Ultimatum.

The countdown timer is a new Thrive Content Builder element that is deceptively simple. But don’t let the simplicity fool you: this single element can light a fire under your conversion rates and have a very real impact on your bottom line.

Check out this quick video demo to see what it’s all about:
