Despite what their business name implies Thrive Themes main products are plugins, not WordPress themes. And they are plugins you’ll definitely want to use if you are serious about building an engaging and high converting website.
Thrive themes is a set of premium WordPress plugins made for solopreneurs who use WordPress as their website and blogging platform. The plugins can expand the functionality of your WordPress site, and are designed to convert your website visitors into subscribers, customers, and true fans.
I use the Thrive Themes plugins and they have made it very easy for me to convert first-time web visitors into subscribers which I will show you in this post.
As a member of the Thrive Themes membership, I can take advantage of their entire suite of plugins, WordPress themes and training.
The Thrive Themes Plugins
The Thrive Theme Plugin suite is currently made up of ten individual plugins. Let's take a look at each one of them in more detail and how I use them on my websites to get the results I want.
Thrive Architect is a visual content builder that makes creating high converting landing pages, sales pages and highly attractive sticky content pages stress-free and easy.
It’s drag and drop interface makes it a joy to design pages that are engaging and look professionally designed and attractive. You control where you want text blocks, images, Call To Actions and other design elements to appear on each page. You can control every design aspect of the page you create, from layout and background design to font size and color.
And you can do this while previewing the pages you are working on in desktop, tablet and mobile mode.
It doesn’t take long to learn how to use the page builder as it is very intuitive, and is constantly being updated with features like drag and drop content blocks. And to make things better there are plenty of page templates to work from.
Page Builder Templates
Thrive Leads is a plugin that makes it simple to create optin pages, optin boxes and strategically add them to the footer, sidebar and specific pages and posts across your site.
Thrive Leads rocks and generates me leads every single day. In fact, today Thrive Leads generated 15 new subscribers from just 64 visits to my Ikigai worksheets page
Add an Optin Form Anywhere!
Adding this inline optin box below was a cinch to set up and display. Yes, it actually works! You can sign up to my ikigai worksheets below.

Thrive Quiz Builder
The Thrive QuizBuilder plugin makes it simple for you to create your own quizzes for your visitors and then based on their answers you can display dynamic content, get them to opt into your email list, and even tag them as an email subscriber based on their responses. And you can also give them the opportunity to share the quiz result to social media as a shareable image.
My Results: 22% of visitors who take the quiz become email subscribers.
You can see from the screenshot below out of 1132 visits to my Ikigai Quiz page, 611 visitors completed the quiz with 249 deciding to opt in to my email list. I don't force visitors to give them email address in order to see their quiz result, but more than 20% are happy to subscribe to my list.
Thrive Apprentice helps you create pro-looking courses straight from your WordPress dashboard. With this plugin you can quickly creating free online courses that you can use as lead magnets, to build up your subscriber base.
And when used with a membership plugin, such as Send Owl, you can also create paid courses that integrate seamlessly with the rest of your site.
The Thrive Ovation this plugin lets you gather and display testimonials for social proof. It's essentially a testimonial management system that works within WordPress.
You can use Ovation to capture new testimonials from customers on your site, review them in the backend, approve them, build up a library of your own testimonials, manage them using tags and then smartly display them on relevant sales pages.
It's an extremely powerful system. I use Thrive Ovation plugin on my Japanese English learning language website
The Thrive Comments plugin takes your WordPress comments and makes them more fun and engaging, similar to how comments works on Facebook and Reddit.
With Thrive Comments you can easily let your visitors upvote or downvote other web visitor's comments. You can also "sticky post" a specific comments at the top of the feed. Also you can let your visitors unlock badges based on their actions.
All of this in a well designed commenting system without using some external third party solution.

Thrive Themes offers a membership, Thrive Membership that includes all of these plugins and more, including access to Thrive University, a home of immediately actionable marketing courses made the Thrive Themes marketing team and founder Shane Melaugh.
These course in Thrive University alone would be worth the cost of a Thrive Membership. Below are just a few examples of the courses you can access in Thrive University.
Thrive Membership Gets My Recommendation
For me, Thrive Themes has been the best investment in terms of WordPress plugins in my online marketing career. I have invested in many other plugins, page builders and third party solutions that just haven't deliver results
I make all my landing pages, sale pages, lead boxes, content pages and quizzes with Thrive Themes. I rarely have to contact support because they provide so many tutorials on how to use each of their plugins
At less than $20 a month on a yearly plan, Thrive Membership with its growing list of plugins and Thrive University membership, is an incredibly affordable investment that will save you time and frustration and deliver you incredible results like mine.
If you want to build high converting sales pages, engaging content pages and build a list of subscribers quickly and without stress and frustration, then I recommend Thrive Themes Membership. My team and I use it everyday.
