Thrive Themes Review

First Impression is the last impressions.The same goes for your website also.In a recent survey it has been found, the success of your blog depends very much on what impression you make in the mind of a new visitors.In most of the cases, it takes only a few seconds to decide by a visitor whether he likes a website and likely to stay and come back again.

I have spent quality time in deciding before choosing a Premium Theme that will go well  on my website.After reading hundreds of websites Reviews, SEO Tips and considering the other factors I have finally landed on Thrive Themes.But more on that later.

First, I would like to explain a few key factors that you should consider before you decide to invest in a Premium themes.

Built for Speed- No one likes a slow loading website.Will you ever visit a website that takes forever to load and makes you so  irritated that you feel like breaking your computer.Loadin time is a major factor in website abandonment by user which can increase your website bounce rate.You Check your website loading time with Pingdom

User Engagement- Be a blog or website, user engagement is one of the major factors behind its success.Without engagement, you won’t have returning users, and you won’t monetizeThe more user-friendly a blog is, more it will help in user engagement. 

Customizable- Every Blog is different from other and made for a specific purpose.A perfect theme must have the flexibility in terms of the customisation.Be it the layout of the theme or adding new functionality it should allow the webmasters to customise further if required.

Mobile Responsive- Mobile Market has taken a serious turn in the recent years.With more people using smart phones and tablets,mobile version of websites are getting more traffics.This is one point, which you should also keep in mind while choosing WordPress theme.A Good WordPress theme should also be mobile responsive so that it brings pleasure to your user while they are reading your websites from their smartphones.

Built In Features and Pluggins-For almost every purpose that you can think of or require, there is a wordpress plugin available for you to use.But the problem is, the more theme you use in your website more it becomes slow and increases the loading speed for your website.Built in features and plugins keep your theme light and makes a significant improvement in the loading speed.

New Updates and Improvement- No matter how good a theme is, there is always room for improvement.After a new theme is launched in the market, it should go through periodical updates.This update ensures that minor or major bugs identified by the users are fixed and also new improvements are made as per the suggestions made by the users.

Training,Support and Tutorials- No WordPress Themes should also have easy to understand tutorial and manual, which can easily be understood by users having no or less coding skills and technical knowledge.Also, for premium themes, there should be a excellent support team available who could help you in fixing issues in your website or answer your queries.

So after considering all these points, I switched to Thrive Themes.Because it just serves all the purpose for me.And now I will explain some of the Thrive Themes features and why should consider Thrives as your next WordPress Themes.

Button Sizes

Thrive Themes come in 3 Button sizes.

More Button Options

For each button, you can also set an alignment (left, right, center) or even make the button span the full width of it’s container. That means it can look like this:

Or it can be contained in a column. For example, you can have three buttons in three columns that are all the same width, even if they have different button texts:

Content Box

Content boxes are great for highlighting certain parts of a text.

Content Boxes Colours 

Custom Boxes 

There are two types of customizable content boxes available in the theme. The first is a box with a custom background and custom border color:

The second type is a content box with a custom image background. In this example, the image background is also combined with a content container, for more control over the layout:

Custom Font Headlines

Thrive Themes include an extensive font manager, which allows you to load any of the 600+Google Fonts.You can easily create custom font headlines and insert them anywhere in your pages, like so:

This is a Custom Headline

This feature is perfect for use on landing pages and sales pages, where big, attention-grabbing headlines are an important conversion factor. As you can see in the example above, custom colors can be set and interesting fonts such as handwritten-style fonts are available.

Speed Factor

Where most font managers load every font you create on every page, in Thrive Themes, we only load the fonts that are actually present on each individual page. This means that you can create a series of custom headlines for use on individual landing pages and it won’t impact the loading speed of any posts or pages on your site, except the pages where you actually insert the fonts.

Headlines Focus

A headline focus adds special emphasis to a heading. Use it for when a regular heading just isn’t quite enough.

Pull Quotes

Pull quotes are a great way to highlight an interesting part of your text content. Pull quotes have been used for a long time in print media, to draw attention to highlights in an article and entice people who are skimming content to dive in and read in more detail.

Pull quotes can be left, right or center aligned.

Drop Caps and Highlights

Drop caps can be added to the beginning of a paragraph and are an age-old method to draw the reader’s eye. They provide a nice visual highlight for your text. Drop-caps are available in 2 different styles and in 8 different colors (see examples below). Another typography feature in the theme is the option to highlight specific parts of your text with a custom color highlight.
