From Striving to Thriving-Using Thrive Themes to enjoy making a beautiful website that converts even if you have no technical skills.

I’m all about transformation at BirthEssence. Usually that’s transforming your birth experience. Today its transforming your business experience, specifically with your wordpress website using Thrive Themes. If you don’t have a business or website then this post will be of no interest.  In that case please forward it on to your friends/colleagues who do have a business and website and who may benefit,- then go and check out my pregnancy tips and motherhood inspiration posts instead.

Who doesn’t want a beautiful website that showcases your work perfectly and draws in lots of new clients?

I certainly do. I am lucky, my brother is a web developer and he helped me with my first site. So I had a good start despite being so clueless.  But I was limited to what I could do on my own, and he was limited in time available to help me.  I had this fantastic vision floating around in my head screaming make me, make me NOW!

I kept putting off doing anything. I had heard of options such as Optimize Press and seen what others had done... but it seemed like a lot of money when I had my brother on hand.

Meanwhile my big dreams were hiding behind my inaction and opportunities were passing me by.

Then I found Thrive Themes.

It was Optimise Press I was researching when I stumbled across Thrive Themes accidentally.  Its tantamount to who they are and what they do that I very quickly made my decision. I took a big leap into the unknown by buying Thrive Content Builder rather than stay with what  I’d heard of before and knew other people using.

I haven’t been disappointed.

Far from it. They have massively surpassed my expectations and  I am having the best time. Already in only a couple of weeks  I have rewritten and redesigned my new look website all by myself.  I've added widgets, tables, testimonial boxes cool boxes and countdown timers like this one... 


​The time ticking away nicely there? That's the time left until the price of membership  increases and is the impetus for me to write this post.

What and who are Thrive Themes?

They are conversion focused wordpress themes and plugins. All of their products aim to be super easy to use, in the front end of your website so you can see exactly what you are doing and fast. Everything they produce is fully customizable.

Their main products are:

Thrive Themes: 9 conversion focused themes to build your website

Thrive Content Builder: Fast, intuitive, front end builder for word press.This was what drew me. If you can drag and drop in Word you can use this. You can always see what it looks like and adjust. You can be a total non techie and build a website like a pro. You can really get into the design fun. You can do almost anything with this.

Thrive Landing Pages: conversion optimized fully customizable landing pages, sales pages and lead generation pages. They act like a mini tutorial in how to write them as the text is instructions on what should go where.

Thrive Leads: List building plug in to build list faster than ever before.Includes A/B Testing engine

Thrive Membership: You get all of the above, plus the support forum, and anything and everything new they bring out.

 I originally bought just Thrive Content Builder but was so impressed with the product and what it could do I upgraded to full membership to benefit from all their offerings. Which are growing at a phenomenal rate. It seems almost every week they add something else.

So why should you care about Thrive Themes and their price increase?

Right now the annual price for the membership is surprisingly low for what you get and it is going up at the beginning of December. But if you purchase now you are locked in at that price. Forever. No matter how many times the prices go up. You never pay more and you continue to receive everything new they bring out.  

And they like to bring out new things. One of the things that drew me was their fresh innovative approach. They seem to be having so much fun and it is catching. I have had fun so far. I started out cautiously as I do. I was reassured by the 30 day refund promise so had nothing to lose. Instead I found myself buying the full membership.

 I am so impressed with what they do and I am really only just scratching the surface of the possibilities.  

I am a little bit shy to shout it out like this. Particularly as the links are affiliate links. That makes me even more shy. But when a friend said to me, 'Charlotte it is so great to see you so fired up and enthusiastic, you have really come alive,' I thought, Yes she is right. I am so enthusiastic. Fun and freedom are the two words that come to mind.  I would be doing a disservice to others out there if I didn't share.

Perhaps you are one of the people out there who have been searching for exactly this, like I was. Perhaps this is exactly the post you needed to read today. If that is the case, go ahead and pick a link to click.

If you don't think you need to buy any of the products but are interested in free stuff to learn more about optimizing your website then you are in luck too. The co founder,Shane, loves to share and does a great blog and video tutorial series. Every subject from effective optins to layout and fonts is covered and he's always adding more. On 30th November he is hosting a Free webinar too. See below:

If you are even a little bit interested in any of the Thrive products then you may like to get to know them a bit better in this webinar on web optimization. Whether you are interested in Thrive Theme Membership or Content Builder or not, Shane's video tutorials, blogs and free gifts are amazingly helpful and this webinar promises to be another useful one.  

Time: 30th November 3pm EST / 8 pm UK time.

One final thing to look out for is Shane Melaugh's  bio which is inspiring in itself as he chose to share the story of how he failed ( colossally in some cases ) at 10 other businesses first. He has determination ( and a social conscience) and I found the story inspiring, comforting and ultimately highly motivating to stick at my business. I read it just at the right time on a day I was feeling a bit low.

So that's it folks. I hope that some of you reading found this useful.  It has saved me money and hassle on getting outside help for my website and has been so much fun.  It has inspired me and I wish to share with people.  If this is not for you perhaps you have a friend who would benefit from this product? Please share it with them if you do.

Please share now to help others benefit:​

Time left until the price goes up
