Let me share one of my secrets with you: a key to the way I work and learn is in how I think. How I think about everything I want to get better at: I look for the underlying principles.
I try to get at the core of things. I try to dig until I "see the matrix" and from there, I learn faster and make better decisions.
If you're reading this, you have a website and you want to improve that website, right?
Well, what exactly does it mean to improve a website? It basically means creating a higher converting website. And what are the underlying principles of a high converting website? Let's find out...
In the latest release of the Thrive Architect plugin, we've added a speed boosting feature for your landing pages.
Whenever you use one of our landing page templates, you can now choose whether your theme's CSS is loaded on that page or not. To discover what that means and how to make use of this feature, keep reading.
A well designed call to action button says "click me" in many ways, whereas a poorly designed button may be missed entirely.
In today's tutorial, you'll discover the subtle (and not so subtle) details that make for great, conversion focused button design. Plus, you'll see how you can quickly create many different button styles in Thrive Architect.
As website owners our whole objective is to get visitors to engage with our websites. But one of the biggest engagements possible on our sites is almost always overlooked...
When a visitor leaves a comment on your website, they're raising their hand as an invested member of your audience. When you think about the effort involved in a leaving a comment, it's a little heartbreaking that all you can do with such an engaged visitor is send them a 'your comment is awaiting moderation' message.
So how do you zone in on those invested members of your audience, using their hand raise as a chance to move them along the path to a conversion?
Getting your visitor from Point A: 'oh, that looks like something I want' to Point B: actually typing in their payment details can, at times, seem like a monumental leap.
That's why we've created our latest landing page set, an elegant looking sales funnel oozing with conversion boosting elements. The Clickjournalist sales page set in available now in Thrive Architect. You can see a live preview of the set in our Landing Page Gallery.
In the video above I'll show you how to create the pricing page from the set, and explain a few of the conversion triggers that will push your visitor to buy.
Every once in a while, someone will ask us: why is there no way to sort landing page templates in Thrive Architect by conversion rate?
We get this question because one of our competitors advertises sorting landing pages by conversion rate as a great feature and advantage of their tool. To clarify: we're not talking about the highest converting landing pages on your site, among the landing pages you've used. We're talking about sorting all landing pages templates based on the average conversion rates of all users.
At first glance, this might seem like good idea. I mean, who wouldn't want to be able to pick the highest converting template to start with?
In this post, I'll explain why sorting templates by conversion rate is wrong on, like, SO MANY levels...
In Thrive Architect you have a wide choice of lead generation landing pages and without needing any other tools you get access to some pretty advanced list building features like 2-step opt-in forms and exit intent lightboxes.
But that's just scratching the surface.
Did you know that you can combine the power of Thrive Leads with Thrive Architect to get detailed statistics and A/B test opt-in lightboxes on your landing pages?
Let me show you!
These days, any self-respecting WordPress theme or plugin will be mobile responsive by default, meaning that it will resize and rearrange to fit medium and small screens.
But if you want to make your content not just mobile responsive but truly mobile friendly, there's more to it than just installing a responsive theme and calling it a day.
If you've ever wondered: "how should I create my content/landing pages/opt-in forms for mobile devices?" today's video is the answer you've been waiting for!
This post has been updated to reflect the changes made in the Thrive Architect plugin.
If there's one thing that sets a good website apart from a bad website, it's clarity.
When you arrive on a well designed website, it's instantly clear what the site is about and what you can do next. A bad website, on the other hand, leaves visitors confused with ambiguous messaging.
So, how can you make sure that your website scores highly on the all important factor of clarity? Do a 5 second test!
