HOW TO MAKE A WORDPRESS WEBSITE – 2017

Check it out for more details:

Thrive Themes currently comes in ten stylish designs ready for for you to use. If you want something great looking and focused on getting you customers, then this is a great way to go.

Note: I even completely switched my blog this year to the Thrive Rise Theme, and you can read about why here.

But there are already some great WordPress themes out there on the market, so why is Thrive Themes different?

Their focus is on conversion, which means getting you paying customers. And quite frankly this is what your website should be about. Building a nice website is a great start, but getting customers is the key!

And on top of that, if you grab their Content Builder, it makes adding or changing a website super simple. Even for non-techies!

Lead Generation Built-in
These themes are very similar to many other modern WordPress Theme, but they also come with some fantastic additions – lead generation pages or landing pages:

Landing Pages
Sales Pages
Thank You Pages
Video Sales Page
Email Confirmation pages
Basically all of the kinds of lead generation pages you need for marketing your business and getting customers. (Note: The exact pages differ for each theme)
Features Built In
Thrive Themes stand out because of their lead generation focus and built-in features. So you also get most of the things you need in a WordPress website built in, and also have to load a lot less plugins.

Landing Pages
The Thrive Content Builder also comes with over 100 landing pages you can select from and use to create any page on your site. I am already trying it out as an alternative to my LeadPages landing pages. What I really love is that I can do it right in WordPress, and really customize every single element. (both limitations of LeadPages)

So there are templates for lots of different landing pages such as:

Lead Pages
Download Pages
Thank You/Confirmation Pages
Sales Pages
Video Sales Pages
Welcome Pages
And even if you do not like the page, it is very easy to customize with the Content Builder elements mentioned above. So you just choose a page to start with, then tweak it or change it completely to suit your needs.

For example, Thrives Themes have the following:

Mobile Responsive (mobile ready)
Google Fonts Built In (choose any from Google)
Icon Library (very handy, and saves on images)
Image Optimizer (reduce image size, speed up load time)
Related Posts, Optin Forms, Galleries, Social Sharing (normally need plugins)

Thrive Content Builder – Change all your Pages Without Technical Knowledge
A great companion to the Thrive Themes is their Thrive Content Builder (more on that below) which allows you to easily edit or add content to your pages or posts.

So not only are we talking a simple drag and drop editor with a massive choice of built-in elements (from text & images to testimonials & opt-in forms), but also a level of detail and options that will satisfy any developer.

Note: I was a developer for 12 years, and this Content Builder can do almost anything. It would put me out of a job!

What that means is that you can take a Theme you like, but is not perfect (which is almost every theme) and tweak and change it to your exact needs. And all without a developer on board.

How exactly this works and what you can do with it I will go over below, because you can also buy the Content Page Builder as a plugin.

The really handy thing about the Thrive Content Builder is that it is simple drag and drop (WYSIWYG) style editor. So you can just choose what you want to use, put it where you want it. And then edit it to your hearts content.
