Thrive Leads Review (2018)
What is Thrive Architect?
Thrive Architect (TA) is a premium WordPress plugin that replaces the default WYSIWYG editor with a frontend drag-and-drop builder that is an actual WYSIWYG editor.
Is it better than the default WordPress content editor? By far. If you were to try it out right now, content creation would never be the same.
Seriously. Thrive Architect can take a boring plain piece of content and turn it into something that's visually appealing.
Thrive Architect is like content creation on steroids.
Thrive Architect Features
Thrive Architect is jam-packed with great features that are all designed to help you create content your visitors will love. These features will also help you crush your competition.
Let's check them out.
1. Dragging and Dropping
Adding elements into your content is easy when using Thrive Architect. Simply choose an element from the toolbar, drag it to where you want it, drop it, and start editing.
Thrive Architect allows you to see what your content would look like on all 3 main screen sizes.
They have this small toolbar at the bottom that allows you to preview your content on tablet and mobile.
Here's what it looks like in action...
Pretty sweet, huh? It avoids you having to adjust your browser manually. Which isn't necessarily a hassle, but still. TA's preview feature is awesome.
And with Google's focus on mobile-friendly content, this will definitely come in handy.
3. Create/Save Custom Templates
One of the greatest things about TA is the fact that you could save anything you create. It doesn't matter if it's just a button, a content box, or a whole blog post.
To do this, you would simply hover over an element and click on the file icon.
Name it, save it, and you'll be able to add it to any post or page you want.
Thrive Architect Elements
Thrive Architect comes with dozens and dozens of elements. Some of these elements include styled lists (with icons), content boxes, columns, table of contents, and more.
Below, we'll take a look at each one of them.
Let's check them out.
Quick Note: TA's elements are broken down into 3 categories. Foundation, Building Blocks, and Integrations.
These are your basic elements like headings, paragraphs, and images. But you'll also find columns (a very handy element), content boxes, and buttons.
Building Blocks Elements:
These elements will are the ones that help your content stand out from normal WP content.
You'll find neat things like styled lists, table of contents, star ratings, and a whole lot more.
Every element is 100% customizable. You will have access to:
Thrive Architect Landing Pages
Thrive Architect comes with tons of landing page templates. This was (or is) actually its own plugin called Thrive Landing Pages. Now it's merged with TA. And it's awesome.
Landing Page Templates for Just About Everything
Whether you're building a landing page to generate leads, sell products, or anything in between, this will have the perfect template for you.
If you want to build a homepage, they've got templates for that. If you want to build lead generation pages, you'll have dozens of templates to choose from. If you want to sell your products, you'll find templates for that.
Heck...If you want to build download pages, thank you pages, confirmation pages, or even a webinar page...you will find templates for each of those.
There are a total of 40 sets of landing pages. Each of them have a template for a homepage, a lead generation page, a confirmation page, a download page, and a sales page. That's 5 different types (although some sets feature more). If you add it all up, that's at least 120 landing page templates.
On top of that, there's this...
Create and Save Your Own Landing Page Templates
So, if at some point you create a landing page you absolutely love, you can save that as its own template.
Remember how I showed you that you can save any piece of content as templates? It's just like that.
Thrive Architect Pricing
Thrive Architect comes with 3 pricing points. Everything is included in all 3 and they're all one-time fees.
These pricing options are license packs. That means none of Thrive Architect's features will be kept from you. You'll get everything you've seen in our review.
Now...Let's have a look at the price tags:
Quick Note: Thrive Themes will ask you if you're interested in getting more with their membership. It's $228 annually OR $90 quarterly. And you'll get 9 other plugins, 10 themes, and all future products/updates. (Highly recommended!)
