Improving Your Funnel

Learn how to use our tools to add two high converting triggers to your funnel...


Scarcity, a.k.a. the fear of missing out, is one of the most effective methods for getting your visitor to buy. It's a well known psychological trigger that makes a purchase seem urgent.

One of the best ways to take advantage of this trigger in your funnel is to use countdown timers.

In this Thrive University course, Shane will take you through the theory behind scarcity marketing and the technical aspects of implementing it in your funnel.

Social Proof

Another extremely powerful 'you need to buy' trigger is social proof. Social proof is anything that shows other people's interest or experience with a product. Common examples of this are star reviews, social share counters, and number of likes or comments.

One of the most effective and immediately applicable sources of social proof for your sales pages are testimonials. This course will show you how to get quality testimonials on autopilot.
