The Next Step
Everytime we release a new template, we need to emphasize that they can be used for any type of business, not just for the one they were designed for.
With Thrive Architect, you can customize a template so much that it can fit almost any type of business.
But to make the most of them, here are a few tricks that will ensure your new homepage is effective.
1. Gather email addresses easily
On the first section of the template, you will find a “Get Started” button:
We will create a jump link, so that when visitors will click on the “Get Started” button, they will automatically be sent to one of the Lead Generation elements that is found in the lower part of the page.
This will make it much easier for the visitor to leave their email address.
To do this, first go to the Lead Generation element that you want the visitor to be sent to and use the “HTML Attributes” option (previously known as “Styles”) and type in a label in the ID field:
Then, go to the “Get Started” button and type in the label with a “#” symbol before it, in the Button link field, like this:
Now, when visitors will click on the “Get Started button”, they will be sent straight to the lead generation element, being able to add their email address very easily.
2. Allow the visitor to call you on click
On the template header, there is a default phone number.
First of all, you can replace it with the one for your business.
And second of all, you can allow the visitor to start calling you by simply clicking or tapping the phone number.
This works best if the visitors access your site on mobile, because in this way they can call you right away. But, it works on a desktop as well, if they have Skype or any other similar software installed.
However, to make the phone number callable, select it and create a hyperlink (Ctrl + K):
Make sure the “Open in new tab” and “Nofollow” options are not selected, and save:
And just like that, you made it much easier for the visitor to get in touch with your business.
3. Allow the visitors to find you on Social Media
Next to the phone number in the header, you also have a few Social Media buttons:
To link the Facebook icon to your Facebook page, select it, and look for the “Animation & Action” option:
Select the hyperlink option and simply paste in your Facebook page URL:
Now, if the user clicks or taps on the Facebook icon, he will be sent straight to your Facebook page.
By default, you have 3 Social Media Icons: Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.
You can very easily replace Linkedin, for example, with an Instagram icon, allowing visitors to get to your Instagram page.
To do this, select the Linkedin icon, go to “Icon Options” on the left sidebar and select the Icon indicator:
Now, in the icon library, simply search for “Instagram” and select the icon that shows up:
And there you go, you know have an Instagram icon on the page.
