In a recent update, we've added a new set of elements called "Data Elements" to the Thrive Content Builder plugin.
Watch the video for a quick tour of how the elements work and how you can customize them to suit your needs.
How to Use Data Elements Wisely
Like I mention at the end of the video, these kinds of data elements are often used in ways that aren't beneficial to the website (or the visitor, for that matter). Here are some links that will help you make the best possible use of the data elements:
- How NOT to Use Progress Bars & Fill Counters - this is the post I wrote when we introduces data elements in our themes. Here, you'll find examples of how not to use these elements, as well as examples of how you can use them to your advantage.
- 3 Questions to Fix Conversion Problems on Your Site - this post outlines a simple strategy you can use to streamline and optimize any content on any page of your website.
- How to Optimize a Low-Traffic Website - also on the topic of finding out what really works on your site, this post covers what you can test when you don't have a lot of traffic yet.
I hope you enjoy this new feature addition to the Thrive Content Builder! If you have any questions or feedback, please leave a comment below!
Great features. I loved these when I used WP Profit Builder. Would love to see you guys add the ability to make the counter data element count down from a number to another number, not just from 0 up to a number. For example, if I am saying I have 40 bonuses to give away and only 23 are left, the counter would start at 40 and drop down to 23.
Other than that, good going! Thanks! Happy to be a Thrive member!
That’s a great suggestion, Tera. I like it! I’ve added this to our feature requests list.
Yeah, I really like that suggestion, too. Draws attention to the scarcity.
Awesome, You guys really rock.
The data elements are not really representing any data, right? Just moving to an arbitrary value that I set when I create the element(?)
You just enter whichever values you want to display.
Thanks for adding such beautiful tools for our pages. Look forward to the future of Thrive.
Thanks for your comment, Ed!
I would also like the possibility to show the progress bar as an animated gif.
I have read some study saying that this animated bars increase signups when using it in 2 steps opt-ins.
The progress bar is animated using CSS, which is much faster and more scalable than an animated gif would be.
Shane, your video and comments on how not to use data elements is excellent. Your marketing driven approach is great!
Thank you, Jeffrey!
I would like to see a final numerical % value at the end of the progress bar leaving the Label area for text about what the progress bar value reflects.
Thanks for your suggestion, Bob.
Once again, You guys rock! Always making the best even better!
Thanks a bunch Thrive Team
Thank you, Joe!
You come up with better features every time I open my email! This is the best landing page and a content builder out there.
Thank you for your comment! More goodness coming soon. 🙂
Awesome, thanks Shane 😀
Thanks for your comment, Diogo. I’m happy to know you like this new addition.
so, for tracking and testing purposes, do these counters have the ability to show when (eg; at what point in a post) someone bounced ?
When are we going to see a charting feature like the Avada theme builder has?
We don’t currently have place to add that to Thrive. But I noted your request-
