Check out the video to see how the new feature works.
Content Locking Example
Below, you'll find an example of a portion of the content being locked, using this new feature:
This is an example of locked content on the page. Only once you opt-in is this content revealed. However, if you reload the page or visit at a later time, you won't have to opt-in again - the content will remain unlocked for you.
The content lock works for all kinds of content, even with the "blur" preview mode used here. You can hide text, images, video and whatever else you want, using this feature.
The blur mode has the advantage of giving your visitors an idea of what they are missing out of. The blurred effect brings the content closer, but still keeps it out of reach. This can be an extra incentive for readers to opt in.
As you can see in the video, the content lock is easy to set up and it adds a powerful new tool for lead generation to your arsenal. While this is something that would typically be sold as a separate plugin or as a paid add-on, the content locking feature is a completely free upgrade for all Thrive Leads users and Thrive Suite customers.
It's available for you to use immediately and all you need to do is update Thrive Leads to the latest version.
API Connection Necessary
This content locking feature only works when you connect to an autoresponder via the API feature. For technical reasons, it's not possible to do the content locking with the HTML form integration.
That means that at the time of this writing, the feature works with Aweber, GetResponse, iContact, MailChimp, MailPoet, ActiveCampaign, Ontraport, Infusionsoft, GoToWebinar and the WordPress user registration.
In our previous post, we've already received a few requests for integrations with other services. If your favorite marketing system isn't supported yet, please let us know by leaving a comment below! New integrations are considered depending on demand, so the more people ask for a specific integration, the more likely it will be added in a future update to the plugin.
Update: We've since added more API connections to the plugin. Here is the full list of API connections that we support:-
