Thrive Content Builder Update & Newsletter News

Better WordPress ContentWell that was frantic wasn’t it? Did you get your Thrive Content Builder plugin during the launch?  Congrats if you did.  For those of us that did already get the Content Builder plugin or the Thrives Themes offer, the place to go for all information and support is here: the Thrive Forum and here: Thrive Knowledge Base.

Shane now has a new Landing Page plugin and you can find out about it HERE.   I haven’t tried out that new Landing Page plugin yet, partly because I’m very happy with my Thrive Content Builder plugin.  I suggest you check out both options and see which plugin suits your needs best. Of course you could always get both, and then tell us which you prefer! Continue reading

Installing & Test Driving The Thrive Content Builder Plugin

The new Thrive Content Builder Plugin has been available for 3 days now. There are only 2 more days before the discount Launch price of $47 dollars closes.  In my previous post I explained the benefits of this plugin for building Posts and Pages with visually based, true ‘what-you-see-is-what-you-get software.

Update: the closing time for the special Launch price of $47 has been extended to midnight on Tues 18th Feb. Update update (!) the Thrive Content Builder is currently retailing for $49 single site license, and $67 unlimited site license.

Today, I have successfully used the Thrive Content Builder to create my first Landing Page.  I have never used a Content Builder of any sort before, and I definitely need to improve my driving skills – and get to know my way around the plugin’s features. It is a new learning curve for me, but I did successfully install, activate and build my first Page using this plugin in 20 minutes. Not a great page, by any standards, but it was a page, and it had 3 columns, some text. and a Call To Action box.

Here is how I did it:

Thrive Content Builder – The Best WordPress Plugin for 2014!

Better WordPress ContentThis plugin has only been available for 2 days, and I already bought it!  If you follow this blog, you’ll already know that I’m always looking out for the free stuff.  And I almost never buy anything - because my aim is to make money, not spend it.   So I don’t often promote anything that costs real money.

But this plugin is an exception. Oh boy, is this plugin an exception!  I checked it out…and bought it right away – no question.  This plugin is such a beautiful, sophisticated, useful tool, that my one-off, money back guaranteed $49 will pay for itself many times over, and for years to come.  This plugin is exactly what I have been looking for…. for months – and here it is!  Launched 2 days ago. Far easier than messing about with the standard WordPress Editor, and it is all done visually, no need for any Code.

AlterEgo Free: How To Block Hackers From MailChimp Accounts

alteregoHow secure is your Subscriber List? Can hackers crack your single-step password Login and steal your precious Subscribers?  Maybe you think that doesn’t happen, so there is no need to worry?  Sadly, you would be wrong. Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened to me.  I don’t know how they got in to steal my New Subscribers, but they did, and I had to immediately shut down all access to my Subscriber List to block the spam-bot, hacker, or whoever else it was.

I do know it came from China.  And it was using dozens of different, but closely linked, slabs of Chinese IPs. But, good news, friends!  AlterEgo comes to the rescue!  The Free AlterEgo app double-locks your MailChimp Login against unauthorized entry by anyone other than you. And it works. Continue reading
