    How are you doing? Back after a long time. Was busy with my exams! :/

    Thrive Content Builder is a great plugin to build stunning professional homepages. Nowadays, most of the bloggers are using it to create attractive posts.

  11. Hi Enstine,

    As we discussed by email I already had Thrive but hadn’t used it a lot – pressure of work as usual.

    However, your recent posts have inspired me to start using it. Just gently to start with, but I’ll learning things about it bit by bit.

    I’d been admiring your new home page and now I know the secret behind it. A revamp of my home page is clearly one of the jobs to be added to my never ending to-do list. I’ll let you know when I’ve changed it. Thanks for revealing the secret of your new smart look! It’s great 🙂

  14. Hey Enstine Muki,
    Thanks, A Lot for shared helpful and most beneficial knowledge. I got more ideas about Home Page Templates, basically. I have learned it something new.

  15. Hi Enstine,

    Lots of choices, here, my friend.

    I guess my blog combines everything.

    It’s largely personally branded (author focused), but the content is really the main feature of the site.

    My products and services are pretty clearly displayed, but, since they’re my own products and services… I’d say that blends in more with the author focused style than the offer focused one.

    As you know, I coach bloggers all the time and so I see a lot of blog setups. I’d say that people used to be strong on the content focus, but lately have been trending toward the offer focus.

    I like to encourage people to be author-focused as much as possible because at the end of the day, it’s not your offer or even your content that people will walk away with… it’s YOU. So I think personal branding is the single most important reason to blog, and I think home page templates are most effective when they feature the author.

    • Great points you made in this comment Donna and I do agree with you. A majority of people these days try to find out who is behind a product first. You see the author reputation influences sales 😉

      My current home page is not meant to be that way forever. I’m certainly still tweaking and looking for the best point.

      Thanks for being part of this post Donna. Hope you are your (JV) partner are doing great 😉

  16. Hi Enstine, you are such a awesome post I guess, I never heard of this strategy for creating compelling homepage templates.

    Keep sharing 🙂

    • Hi Dawid,
      Thanks for the nice words. I think you’ll now go grab a copy of this plugin to create high converting home page for your blog 😉

      Good luck bro

  17. It happened always that when we create any blog or site then we spend good time for choosing page templates. It’s always time taking process in my view and I think that for the help of this post it will be easy.

  18. Hi Enstine,

    I’m using the traditional post listing homepage, and would love to switch to the offer focused homepage soon.

    An appealing homepage is ideal, much like yours.

    This post tells me one thing:

    It has drawn my attention to “value proposition”.

    The homepage you choose do powerfully communicate.

    And Thrive has given us the best ways to do that – all in a masterpiece.

    Good work Enstine.

  19. Hi Enstine,
    Very interesting and I like yours by the way. I haven’t changed mine in a while and I think I should have more of the popular posts included on mine. I will be updating that after this comment. I also think it’s important to keep it clean and not over-loaded. I don’t like landing on some that have everything blinking at you at once. Nice and neat is best. Thanks for sharing these ideas with us Enstine. Have a great rest of the week.

    • Hi Lisa,
      So good to see you around and thanks for commenting and sharing your experience.
      With this plugin, you can create just anything that comes to your brain.

      I see your most popular post on top of your sidebar and that looks great. This plugin enables you to put that anywhere on your home page. It’s quite flexible so you may want to try it some day.

      It’s a new week so I pray you have a wonderful business ahead 😉

  20. Bravo Enstine!

    You have done it once again my friend!

    You never cease to amaze me, by always coming up with
    and or introducing us to some extremely critical advice and or software etc.

    And this is no exception. I had not previously heard of this particular one.

    And it certainly is extremely versatile!Thanks!

    • Hi Mark,
      Good to hear from you man and thanks for the comment on this post.
      This is one of my most exciting plugins. I hope you grab a copy 😉

      There is a beautiful week ahead so let’s keep giving

  21. Hi Enstine

    Interesting stats. You are right about the home page. There is a need to take advantage of the homepage to attract visitors.

    Thrive builder seems to do the trick. Thanks for the info. Have a wonderful week

  22. Hi Enstine,

    For the longest I just linked to my list of eBooks.

    Then I did the more traditional page, sharing my content freely.

    I did add a clear, benefits dripping pop up so users can grab my free Blogging From Paradise eBooks every Friday.

    But I may create the hybrid you speak of. Nice mix methinks, for both business calls and free content.

    • Hey Ryan,
      Thanks for popping in here and sharing your thought 😉

      Still not being able to access your site from here, I really don’t know what changes have taken place 😉

  23. Well awesome post I guess, I never heard of this strategy for creating compelling homepage templates.

    BTW I was wondering how did you animate this image in your posts. Any plugins?

  24. It’s a good article and never thought of this before. I have some issues with my home page back button, so am thinking about changing the home page. My site using WordPress platform and it will help me to build my site to a better one. Thanks again

      • Hi Enstine…

        I have changed my site’s home page using Beaver page builder. Its a free plugin available on WP and easy to use. Thanks once again for the article as I got the idea of building a new home page from it.

  25. Hello Ensinte,

    I am giving some serious thoughts of moving my blog in other location and making homepage different – different in sense of having it looked different. 🙂

    I have not used my blog’s homepage for any thing to focus on so far. 🙂

    I am not good at anything and don’t have anything (eBook, product, etc.) to place on the homepage and for now using just posts. Thanks to you pointers that I can write up something to place on my home page which I am thinking to make it author-focused.

    Yeah, Thrive Content Builder is in my radar, will soon grab it! 🙂

    Thanks for that, buddy! Happy to share it! 🙂

    • Hi Adeel,
      Permit me disagree with you on the point you mentioned about you being good at nothing. The reason I disagree is that I know you are good at blogging and that’s something you can offer as a service and teach the millions who don’t even know where to start.

      do you see with me that you are good somewhere and you can have a product/service to offer?

  26. Hi Enstine,

    Awesome homepage options by Thrive you’ve explained here…

    In the past, I used the numerous options inherent in Genesis to create a product focused homepage when I was running a traditional offer focused site. However, today, things have changed and I no longer blog in the ‘traditional’ manner. Instead, I run an information portal where even the basics got from the Genesis framework are no longer needed.

    However, for any other blogger, Thrive is where they should look – if an option like Genesis doesn’t already give them all that they need.

    Make the day great!

    Always,
    Akaahan Terungwa

    • Genesis is awesome with its bundles bro and Thrive adds more to it 😉
      Thanks for stopping here and sharing your experience

      I hope you are having an awesome week
