It would be quite evident while you have gone through your research about creating your website or some sort of online presence, that WordPress is one of the best option for you as an individual or for your business.
You can also read about all the specific details here, why WordPress is the only best platform and why. You would be more than happy as you are starting out and you can literally plan your journey upto any limit with the platform. There are many big brands started with and are still existing on WordPress platform itself and thriving.
Ofcourse, it is never easy to go live and straightaway thrive within their niche. Usually it takes minimum 6 to 12 months of consistent hard work and may be even a couple more years if you really work consistently on the task.
As you get started with your website, you will realise that you need many other jobs or tasks on your website like to create lead magnets, collect leads, send emails and do many other ongoing tasks for promotions and other relevant activities pertaining to your website services or products.
What if you would have known or found the perfect solution that would have let you create your beautiful website that would comply with google algorithms for speed i.e. Core Web Vitals and have all the requisite steps taken beforehand. If not, you may have to work around and have to manually optimise your website for Core Web Vitals.
Well let’s not roam around and cut the story short. Today, I would like to introduce and discuss a tool i.e. All In One Tool Set – Thrive Suite.
What is Thrive Suite?
It includes many smaller tools within the suite and you can literally build the whole website without any fuss. You don’t need to be a developer or designer. If you can imagine how you want your website to be, you can literally create your website. Even if you don’t have any idea or can’t imagine, you can literally look at your desired websites and you will get all the tools handy within Thrive Suite to get your desired outcome.
Thrive Suite has been developed and designed by Thrive Themes. They have created the tool with an idea to have all the options that a website may ever need under a single roof. This is where Thrive Suite comes into play i.e. a complete suite of tools that has almost everything you need. Let’s have a look what’s included and what can you do with it.

Thrive Membership has recently rebranded themselves as Thrive Suite in early 2021. Since then, they have upgraded their tools and have brought extremely amazing features that would enhance the capabilities and efficiency of your website.
I would like to mention that rather than dealing with multiple themes, multiple plugins to get your desired results, it is always better to have a single tool in your pocket like a swiss knife that can deal with all your requirements without any hassle simultaneously complying with all the latest upgrades and updates as per the Google’s core web vitals. While you keep investing into many tools and plug-ins you will be heavily invested into these and you would also need to renew on annual basis or may be at relevant intervals depending on the tools, but with Thrive Suite your life will be much more easier comparatively.
Thrive Suite Pricing
Let’s go through all the options you can leverage within the suite and what each feature has to offer along the way.
Thrive Theme Builder

You receive complete control over your website design. You can directly drag & drop every aspect and each element of the page without any type of coding skills. It is not a separate plug-in as you may imagine, but it is a complete alternative to Elementor Pro. You can visually build your pages fast with accurate precision. You can check out the below video to get an idea how easy and interactive it is. You don’t need to spend your hefty funds over Elementor Pro.
Within Thrive Theme Builder, you get complete three themes fully ready to load into your website. You can launch your website within 15 minutes with complete rebranding your own website with your own choice of colours, fonts, logo and every aspect of the website.
You can directly input your lead magnets and conversion elements as per your needs. You will finally receive a complete mobile responsive website within minutes. You can leverage all the available three themes i.e. ShapeShift, Ommi, Kwik. I highly recommend to get hold of Kwik as it has been built considering the google’s page speed requirements and it is completely coded from the scratch considering to achieve the targets as prescribed under Google’s Core Web Vitals. I have extensively mentioned all the specific details about Kwik theme in my review.
Thrive Theme Builder fully integrates with many other tools natively, so that you don’t have separately install extra plugin. So that it is not heavily loaded on your service like other plugins, which means your software will talk to each other seamlessly.

That’s why Architect has been built with a laser focus intention to convert your visitors.
You can create a perfect sales page with Thrive Architect, which won’t be possible directly with WordPress. Ofcourse there are many other tools like Elementor Pro, Beaver Builder and many more, but eventually you need to pay for the tools and if you check the cost out, you will see the features you get from them and the results you would achieve are not as beneficial as you can get from Thrive Suite.

If you want to make any changes you can edit and change the layout and adjust as per the requirements. You can also design a perfect combination of text and images that would directly catch the attention of your visitors. You can customise the font colours to give any type of look you would need.
