Are you struggling to create a beautiful WordPress site you can proud of?
There are plenty of themes and page builders out there. However, what often happens is that you see a demo page that looks absolutely great, but once you try to build it on your website, it's been anything but easy.
If you haven't been able to find the perfect WordPress theme or page builder and content editor, then Thrive Architect can help with your sanity.
Let's face it, even with recent updates, the default WordPress content editor is pretty lame and limited. You want to easily and quickly create professional looking websites with pages and blog posts that engage your visitors and convert them into subscribers and buyers.
Simply put... Thrive Architect gets the job done! In this Thrive Architect Review you'll learn if it's for you, get a walk-thru of the user interface, why it truly could be the best WordPress visual drag-and-drop WYSIWYG editor going into 2020... and why I absolutely love using it!

I've been in the online marketing arena since 2005 and in that time I've tried all sorts of ways to build web pages... including advanced software like Adobe Dreamweaver, FrontPage, KompoZer, and the likes... heck, in the early days I even did raw html coding.
The first real game-changer for me was a software called XSitePro... it was easy to understand and I was able to quickly build decent looking websites. But, in 2012, the developer of XSitePro decided to discontinue it.
After the end of XSitePro, I started to use WordPress to create my sites, mainly because blogging was the "in thing" back then. And I've been using WordPress ever since.
Now, I've tried a few WordPress themes and content builders. My greatest challenge was that I could never really get the site to "look and feel" exactly how I wanted - I would spending hours trying to tweak the look of my websites - which lead me to the conclusion that WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) wasn't truly WYSIWYG.
... and seamless integration with other web services was no walk in the park either.
Luckily, a friend of mine suggested that I take a look at ThriveThemes...
I remember watching the intro video and thinking that it was so uncanny that the person in the video (Shane, the founder and CEO of ThriveThemes) was able to identify almost every problem and frustration I was facing at the time with the other content builders and themes I had tried.
I had no choice but to give Thrive Architect a try... and so began my love affair with Thrive Architect... and Thrive Themes.
Thrive Architect is for anyone who wants to build great looking, conversion focused websites within the WordPress platform, without having any coding or design skills.
Let me share my checklist for what I look for in a content editor and page builder:
If your list includes any or all of the above, then Thrive Architect is definitely for you!

Another way to fully appreciate the scope of Thrive Architect is to have a look at some websites created using this page builder and content editor.
To start off, I'll make mention of a couple of the websites I've created. There is of course this site AffiliateMarketingLessons.com. But here are two other sites I've created using Thrive Architect.

Existing content editors are similar in many aspects - drag-and-drop interfaces, integration with popular email marketing services, template pages to help you build your content, and so on...
But what sets Thrive Architect apart... here are a few ways:
Most other content builders provide you with 1 year of support and 1 year of updates. So, after the year has passed, you will stop receiving updates... if you want to continue receiving updates you'll need to make some sort of further payment. Updates to content editor plugins is inevitable, as WordPress and other online applications update regularly. Thrive Themes offers free lifetime updates.
