One of the best investments I made earlier on this year was to buy the Thrive Themes Content Builder plugin for WordPress.
What is the Thrive Themes Content Builder ?
The Thrive Content Builder is just one of the products created by the team over at Thrive Themes. Earlier on this year I was looking for something that would allow me to build landing pages in a hassle-free way.
LeadPages is definitely at the top of the Landing Page industry but I honestly did not want to pay a monthly recurring fee for using their product. I am a buy-it-once-and-done kind of girl.
The toss-up then was between OptimizePress and Thrive Themes. After reading through their descriptions and reviewing which one would suit my needs, I decided to go with Thrive Themes and specifically with the Content Builder Plugin.
And boy am I glad I did !
Okay, back to what exactly the Thrive Content Builder is.
The Thrive Content Builder plugin is actually a 2-in-1 plugin that both allows you to edit your content on the front end of your WordPress site and create landing pages.
The editor part of the plugin makes it so that instead of writing and editing your blog posts using the native WordPress Editor in the back-end like so :
You can write and edit your blog posts using the Content Builder in the front end of your website like so :
The advantage of this : instead of hitting the “Preview” button in the back-end and then finding out that the way you formatted it in the WordPress editor is not how your post is showing up, you can control things using the front-end editor that is Content Builder.
The second thing you can do with the Content Builder is to build landing pages. This is the feature I love and use most.
I have used it to create this Thank You page for when people sign up for my blog:
as well as this page inviting people to sign up for my Social Media Manager mini-training.
You can build webinar pages, video course pages, home pages, sign up pages – you name it, they have it.
It currently costs $67 for one website and $97 for multiple websites with lifetime access to the plugin and all subsequent updates. Definitely a steal for a premium plugin with such versatility.
Drawbacks of the plugin : you may run into some difficulty using the plugin if it conflicts with other plugins on your site. My workaround has been to deactivate (NOT UNINSTALL) all other plugins while I create a landing page and re-activate my plugins when I am done. Thrive Themes has been working on a solution so hopefully in the future, this will not be an issue.
Other than that, I have no qualms !
If you’d like to see me do a walk-through of the plugin and a mini-tutorial of how you would building a simple video landing page using the Content Builder, you are welcome to watch the video above.
I absolutely love this plugin and highly recommend it if you are looking to build amazing-looking landing pages for a super reasonable price.
