Why I Bought Thrive Content Builder ~ Why you too should buy now!

NB: This content was created using Thrive Content Builder

Thrive Content Builder is one of the most exciting Plugins I have bought in recent times. My first post I created with this editor has a new visual experience that makes me very excited about the investment.

There are two reasons I got a copy of this crazy visual composer and I will share them with you:

  • To create beautiful, readable, animated and powerfully attractive and stunning visual content.  
  • To make money as an affiliate. I'll explain more below.




Creating content doesn't have to be boring from the point of view of the creator. Your readers too have to feel excited about your content formatting and graphical elements that make them want to stick around for more...

In this section, I'm going to look at some of the tools of this plugin and how we can use them for the kind of formatting and visuals that will keep your readers longer on your blog​

Now, once you purchase your copy, you'll have to install and activate like you do with most premium plugins.

To access the editor, click to load your traditional WordPress Content Composer.​ You'll see the Thrive Content Builder icon just above the content tool bar. See image below:

thrive theme content builder


Before you even click to load the editor, there are three things you must do first:

  • You must enter the title of your post
  • You must make sure your permalink too is saved
  • You must click to save draft

Doing this will create and save the copy you are going to be editing with the new world editor. If you don't do this you'll see Page Not Found error. If this is already happening to you, don't panic. There is nothing wrong. Just follow the three steps above.

Adding beauty and animation with Thrive Content Builder

There are different content elements you need to make your blog posts less boring. One of the reasons for high bounce rate and less time on site is the fact that your content is clumsy.

Beautifully presenting your posts, garnishing and prettifying them with eye-catching animated and meaningful visuals will inevitably improve reading and make your visitors spend more time on your site.

Let's get some stats!​

80 %
  • Researchers found that colored visuals increase people's willingness to read a piece of content by 80%
65 %
  • 65% of senior marketing executives believe that visual assets are core to how their brand story is communicated
90 %

According to Kissmetrics, 90% of information that comes to the brain is visual, and presentations with visual aides are 43% more persuasive

thrive content builder

Let me end these stats here. Did you see the data elements I have used above? These are some of the animated visual assets you get with Thrive Content Builder 

Let's see how to do what. What are some of the elements and how do we get them into your content

With thrive content builder, you can get just anything your brain can think of done. From powerful buttons, icons, tables, social sharing buttons, traditional WordPress widgets, pricing tables, tapped content, tweetables, testimonials, landing pages, home pages, etc

One of the things I was quickly able to set up was my home page. I will be doing a post in the days ahead showing you how to change the traditional post listing home page into a real email capture, business site home page.​

Accessing Thrive content builder menu

Once you are on the page, the thrive builder menu is not hard to locate. The default position (which can be changed) is located to the right of your screen.

At this level, your newly created post is empty and the page is completely locked. You'll have to simply click and drag an element from the editor and drop on the page in order to be able to add content.​

One of the elements you'll have to start with is the Paragraph/Text Element. This will create the text area, allowing you to type your content.​

This element is the first on top of the list of elements on the editor. It has all the formatting you need: Bold, Italicize, underline, align, H1​ to H6, background colors, text colors, font, etc


As content marketers and online businessmen, we need calls to action in our content.

Whether you are doing simple blog posts or sales copies, at one point, you need to call your readers to action​.

Thrive content builder has beautiful call to action styles (Like this box). All you have to to is drag and drop, then change text and colors and links​

This box above is Style 3 Call to Action box. There are 3 others so you should test out to see which one is good for your design.

For each style, you can click to change colors, font, link, etc. The flexibility is such that your brain is the only limit.​

Take down your Pricing Table Plugin

Thrive content builder comes with an excellent Pricing Table builder. All you need is drag & drop, click to change values with options to bold, underline, italicize, add animations to button elements, add links to buttons, etc​.

Seriously, you don't need any additional plugin to do this. You can add a pricing table with up to 5 columns. This tool's flexibility allows you to do just anything.

The sample below is a real working demo, not an image!

What else do you want to do with Thrive Content Builder?

Do you want to create sales copy?

This builder allows you to design professional sales copy with visuals that boost sales. Some of the conversion elements on sales pages are videos, testimonials, images, buttons calls to action, bullets, etc

Now let's talk about adding testimonials to your pages.

Whether these are blog posts, sales or lead capture pages, adding testimonials with Thrive Content Builder is a matter of drag and drop, then import images and type text. There are many testimonial plugins out there but quite frankly, you do not need them.

thrive theme testimonials

Thrive content builder comes with 9 testimonial designs. All you can do is drag and drop, change colors, text, pictures, etc. This actually makes me ask questions if any additional plugin is necessary.

What about adding Guarantee Statement to your copy?

A guarantee is your word you give out to your prospective buyers to assure them of the quality of your product and give them a time range within which they can ask for a refund should they not derive satisfaction from the product.

Often,  it's not quite easy to get professional designs for guarantee boxes. Some plugins do this, but then you have to take them down. You don't need them as you already have this feature in Thrive Content Builder.  ​Just look at this:

thrive theme gurantees

Dealing with videos

Videos of course have become an inevitable factor in content marketing. Thrive Content builder makes it easy to add responsive videos to your content​

thrive theme video

The video tool bar allows you to insert video from different sources, and a couple of options to control how your video displays on your site. All you need is the video url and not copying of some complex html code.

The content reveal

​The content reveal is an interesting feature used by many video marketers. What it does is reveals some text on the page after a certain time.

You might have noticed on some videos, the Price and Buy Now button appears after a few minutes of watching the video. Thrive Content Builder has a feature called Content Reveal that does just that

thrive builder content reveal

In the image above, the selected content (text, images, etc) will be revealed after 50 seconds.

Thrive content builder - more exciting features

Now, I didn't want this post to be a thrive content builder review. I just wanted to share with you 2 reasons I bought it. But here are some few more things you get with this awesome plugin:

  • Different types of stylish bullets
  • Complete image manipulation including animations
  • Splitting your page into columns easily
  • Excellent Lead capture light box that can be called on mouse actions
  • Tabbed content
  • Post Grid
  • Feature Grid
  • Tables
  • Table of Contents
  • Excellent Home pages
  • Excellent lead capture pages
  • Content Toggling 
  • Google Map Embed
  • Countdown Timer
  • Star Rating
  • Symbols
  • Beautiful Icons
  • Web Buttons
  • HTML boxes where you  can drop html codes including shortcodes
  • Etc


I told you above I have two reasons for buying this plugin. One is to be able to add attractive visuals to my content. The second reason is to make money promoting the plugin

Just having the plugin on this blog will not generate any sales but promoting it through affiliate marketing will surely get some money into my wallet.

The best way to boost affiliate sales is to promote a product you are using. That's because you can share your experiences and results.

So how do I intend to do this?​

  • Provide detailed tutorials how to use different features of the plugin
  • Share my results with my readers. Each time I create content with the plugin, I'll make it clear that the plugin was used to create the content
  • Etc

You too can make money promoting it

​Any one blogging on WordPress can promote this plugin and make money too. As I write this post, I have just sold three copies. If you share your results with your readers, chances of make sales are very high.

I know you will like to make some money promoting something that converts like crazy. Here are four steps to take right now;

  1. Click here and order your copy (That's my aff link)
  2. Install on your blog and play with it. 
  3. Create beautiful content and publish on your blog
  4. Tell your readers you are using it. Join the affiliate program and promote it to make money​

I got back my money

The plugin costs just $67. As an affiliate, you get up to 50% per sale. That means you get $33.50 in cash each time you generate a sale through your link. Two sales will be enough to get your money back.

The three sales I made got for me $100+, which means I now have the plugin for free. I got back all I spent and now it's helping me even make more more​

thrive content sale

So what's stopping you from trying to make more money? In my ebook, Affiliate Marketing For Bloggers, I shared this tip and more on how to boost affiliate sales.

Buying and using any product before promoting it is one of the top ways to remarkably increase your sales. While this helps you get the products, it adds more into your purse.​

So please share with me in the comment box below let me know what you think about this plugin and promoting it to make money.​

  • Imer Imran says:

    I must say that thrive’s product is one of the best product I’ve ever bought so far especially thrive theme, thrive landing pages and thrive content builder. But i’m not aware of its ability to creating visually compelling, animated content and the content reveal feature. Thanks for highlighted it.

    Again, what i love about thrive’s product is that its come with great product tutorial via member dashboard and response from the support is also fast.

    Last but not least, i’m highly recommend all thrive’s product for anyone and i love the way you promote it with this post.

      Yes, there are great and detailed videos everywhere teaching every function of the products. The team is working hard and the forum too is doing well.

      good to hear you are doing well with it too bro. However, put in some time to study how to do these animations. They are very simple and can turn your blog around 😉

      hope you are having a great week

  • Adeel Sami says:

    Hello Enstine,

    Wow! I can’t really believe how cool is that plugin – Super interesting post you crafted using Thrive Content Builder. Really cool!

    I will sure get it once I put my steps over commercial blogging! 🙂

    • Enstine Muki says:

      Hey Adeel,
      Good to see you here bro and thanks for the comment.
      Yes this plugin turns content editing on WP around. You’ll enjoy it by the time you grab your copy

      I hope you are doing great this week

  • Ryan Biddulph says:

    Hi Enstine,

    Ya just can’t go wrong with using a visually-appealing content builder dude. Eye candy rocks. Your presentation here proves it. If you design something too busy, readers will flee. But if you spruce things up, with TCB ;), more readers will appreciate your blog and brand. Presentation counts, big-time.


    • Enstine Muki says:

      Hey Ryan,
      Thanks for stopping by bud and the your comment is exciting.
      I feel awesome editing content with the new editor. The feedback I get too is crushing so I think I have added something awesome to this blog.

      I hope you are having a wonderful week there in paradise

  • Hi Enstine,

    Thanks for this great review. Like Ryan mentioned, you can’t go wrong with “eye candy” and this makes it so easy to do.

    This is like having a virtual assistant helping you creating not only content, but with so much more….capture pages, animations and so on….

    Thanks for this awesome review …you know I’m going to pass this on.


    • Enstine Muki says:

      Hey Donna,
      Thanks for reading and sharing this review

      I really do enjoy the way this is simple to use and the results are great too. I have created a few content with it and don’t feel like using traditional editor any longer.

      Do you have it running on your blog too?

  • Theodore Nwangene says:

    A very awesome tutorial Enstine,

    I also have Thrive Content Builder and will start using it soon, I’m still trying to master it. Its indeed a very useful piece of tool and can’t wait to devour it 🙂

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Zara says:

    Hi Enstine,

    I bought this and I am very eager to work with it but I have found a problem with my site, so working on getting that corrected before diving into this. I like what I see so far.

  • Hey Enstine,

    I have thrive leads and I’m quite sure Thrive content builder will deliver even more value. I like all of the formatting, call to action and other features that you mentioned here and it looks like you’re getting more than what you pay for it. Thanks for sharing Enstine!

    • Enstine Muki says:

      Hea ya!
      The value in this stuff is quite much and I’m thinking like it’s more than what I spend.
      I don’t have thrive lead but from what I see here, I’m sure that will be another huge piece 😉

      Thanks for commenting and sharing man
      Do have a wonderful week

  • Hi Enstine,

    I’ve brought this earlier but couldn’t use properly. As a result, my blog posts were looking dull. This content has changed my idea & helped me to build a awesome content as well as save the time.

    Thanks for your excellent post.

  • Joy Healey says:

    Hi Enstine,

    I’m very impressed to see all the exciting ways you’ve used the Thrive Content Builder plugin.

    I bought myself copy a few weeks ago but haven’t used most of the features yet. I know I’ll be learning from you as I read further articles over the weeks.

  • Igert says:

    Hi Enstine

    A very complete and clear description of a tool that can make a site come alive. It certainly has a lot of stylish and eye-catching features that no blogger should be without.

    It seems like one of those tools that can attract money to the affiliate in no time.
    The importance of visual appeal should never be underestimated and it seems this plugin provides this in abuncance.

    It is always good to learn about new tools that can help grow our readership.

    Good helpful post.

    • Enstine Muki says:

      What a wonderful weekend seeing you here Igert 😉
      And yes, there are 2 great things about this plugin;

      2 – It converts quite well for affiliates

      So if you want to promote an affiliate product that’s proven to sell well, don’t hesitate to try this.

      Hope you are having a wonderful weekend

  • Ben says:

    Hi Enstine. You have really shown the value of the plugin. I can definitely see how it can make a post or page better. I’m thinking that it could be a good fit for some of my product pages. I will have to look into it more, as well as continue to follow what you do with it. The affiliate option is always a plus.

    • Enstine Muki says:

      Hey Ben,
      Thanks for being part of this post today.
      This plugins is a great addition to WordPress and I hope you try that out some day on your sites.

      BTW, do have a wonderful weekend and thanks again for being part of the discussion 😉

  • Ikechi says:

    Hi Enstine

    I have heard of Thrive content builder and even visited their site.

    Well I love the way you have used it on the site and looks exciting.

    This is one tool I will definitely try out. Thank you for the tips. Take care

  • SY Abuzar says:

    Hello Muki – How does the multi-license work for developers? Do you export the pages or install the plugin on your client’s site using your own activation code?

  • I have installed thrive content and it takes time to post but once you posted it looks very beautifull visually

    • Enstine Muki says:

      Hey Dav,
      The method is to pre conceive your design. Once you know exactly how it will look like, the next step is drag and drop the objects.

      BTW, how is your general experience with it?

  • Hey Estine,
    When you wriote about TCB a few weeks ago and I saw it working I immediately have bought it. It has great tutorials and doc’s. So now I’m experimenting with this really helpfull and time-saving tool.
    I have no idea if affiliate marketing works in my field of education in the Netherlands. Nice item for a talk with Jasper.
    Anyway, thanks for sharing again and let’s make marketing more and more pleasurable (and honest)
    Walk in grace,
    Hans van Zanten!

    • Enstine Muki says:

      Hi Hans,
      Yes there are quite many tutorial videos to help users and you won’t regret every buying this plugin.

      Yes Jasper should come in with some helpful information about Affiliate Marketing in your area. However, if you have bloggers reading your blog, they should be interested in the plugin too.

      I’d like to hear more from you how it goes

      Have a wonderful weekend

  • Lisa Irby says:

    Found this in search while trying to figure something out and thought “Hey, that’s Enstine!” I love, love, love TCB. You and so many other readers told me to get it after I posted about Visual Composer. Kim kept raving about it so I got it a month ago. This leaves VC in the dust! LOL Thank you.

    • Enstine Muki says:

      Ah! Welcome to my blog Lisa. I don’t know what it is that you were looking for in search but I’m glad you are here 😉
      I do remember that post you created about VC and I’m looking forward to (this time) a comparative post.

      If VC is been relegated to the dust, it therefore means TCB has some options that make it better.

      Any chance of having that VC vs TCB post?

  • Maqbool Azam says:

    Hi Enstine,

    This is great post indeed.Thrive content builder is one of the plugin which helps the blogger to create his content in awesome style and in unique style.
    Thrive content builder allows you to design professional sales copy with visuals that boost sales.
    Thanks to share these lines with us.
