News for the Coming Weeks

The non-beta version of Thrive Content Builder and our Thrive Themes membership are fresh out of the gates and the Thrive Theme team has spent most of the last two weeks on customer support.

After a huge influx of new customers, the dust is now starting to settle, so in today’s video update, I want to give you a quick overview of what’s to come in the following weeks.

Watch the short video below, to get up to speed:

Version 1.27 – Mirror Your Brand with Custom Colour Feature

Before I forget - Happy New Year!

I'd like to introduce you to a new feature in Thrive Content Builder that will make your lives much easier if you're trying to build pages to match brand colours for your own site or for sites of your clients.

One of the things that you fed back to us after the initial launch is that you wanted to be able to customise the colours of the elements (content boxes, testimonials, call to actions...) in order to make them match the colours of your brand.

Well, I'm pleased to say that now you can.

Meet Our New and Improved Content Editor!

As an early customer of Thrive Content Builder, you've undoubtedly noticed that we've added new features and new elements at a rapid pace. This unfortunately led to some problems with the editor interface. As pretty as it was, there was just not enough space for all the buttons and controls we kept adding.

To remedy this issue, we created a completely new design for the editor. And while we were at it, we looked through all of the suggestions we'd received, with your suggestions about how to make the editor better and implemented as many improvements as possible.

Today, we are proud to present the result:

Version 1.25 Released – Common Bugs Fixed

One of the great things about being able to do a "pre-launch" is that you can tell us all the issues that you've been having so we can then work through them and make the plugin as resilient as possible for you.

In the latest version of the Content Builder (version 1.25) we took a few moments away from developing new features and instead focused on fixing a number of bugs that you told us were annoying you!  

New Content Builder Element: The Feature Grid

We've just added a new feature to Thrive Content Builder and you'll love this one if you create sales pages and landing pages!

The purpose of the new element is to give you a way to display an array of features (or feature/benefit combinations) in a very compelling manner. If you look around at the most beautiful sales pages on the web, you almost always come across something like this.

Here's a video, showing exactly how the new feature works:

Content Builder v1.19 Just Released

We've released version 1.19 of the Content Builder after a flurry of development.  You can download the latest version of the plugin by following the instructions here

Submit Your Thrive Content Pages!

Calling all Thrive Content Builder pre-release users! Send in your pages and win our admiration (and an Amazon gift card)!

The pre-release frenzy for our first plugin is over and the dust has begun to settle, which has given us time to add a few updates and feature additions. And you’ve had some time to tinker with the new content builder and create some nice pages.

Now, we want to see those pages!

Thrive Content Builder – We’re Alive and Kicking

We launched the first version of our new Content Builder plugin on Thursday last week and the response from you has been amazing... thank you.

As you probably know, we always like to do a pre-release deal for new products we create. You get a new piece of software at a great price and we get feature suggestions, real-life testing by many users and much more.​

This was no different for this early release of Thrive Content Builder... except for scale. We have never seen this level of enthusiasm or this much interaction from new customers, for what is "just" a small pre-launch.

How to Improve Your Opt-In Form Conversion Rates (Part 2)

In the first opt-in form clinic post, we got a very lively reaction and over 30 user submissions for this follow-up post.

After the difficult task of selecting just a few of those, we're now ready to have another look at real examples of opt-in forms and what steps you can take to improve them.

Be warned: in this post, we're going deeper into the topic than before and if you invest the time into reading it, you'll know far more about how to turn your visitors into email subscribers than most people ever will.

Without further ado...
