You want to go through Thrive Themes Content Builder Review, right, I know, you came to the right page to explore about it.
I am using WordPress since 2 years, it is the best CMS for bloggers because of its features, I too agree with that but with the WordPress editor, we can not do all the things we want to do.
As a blogger, I read a lot of blogs to improve my knowledge regularly when I look at some blogs.
For Example, take a look at the "authority hacker" website their content presentation looks different than the normal blogs because they are using "Thrive Visual Editor plugin" to craft the article and their content presentation looks extraordinary.
You might think what is the content presentation and how it helps the bloggers?
Read this Thrive Content Builder review completely you will come to know all the details about the content presentation which are aesthetically appealing to read and consume content in a better way.
Before coming to know about these content builders.
I was so curious to know how they are adding image effects like zoom in, zoom out in the content, content boxes, testimonial boxes, animated call to action buttons, multiple columns layout, lead boxes, tables, countdown timer and responsive videos with different styles and all that.
If we want to add above mentioned elements in our article with the help of normal WordPress Editor then we have to choose different plugins or we should use shortcodes or we should have knowledge of CSS programming which consumes a lot of time and it can increase page load time on WordPress.
One simple solution to incorporate all these elements in our articles is selecting the perfect and affordable content builder.
Content builders will do all these things very easily with drag and drop options to build content.
There are so many content builders available in the market to choose but today I am going to share Thrive Themes page builder review to make you aware of its features and benefits.

Thrive Themes Content Builder Review
Before moving ahead with Thrive content builder review, I will briefly share some things about this plugin.
What Is Thrive Visual Editor?
Thrive content builder is a WordPress visual editor plugin created by Thrive Themes, its a "WYSIWYG" content editor with drag and drop elements which allows us to see perfectly how our content will look after publishing the post.
Mr.Shane is the driving force for the companies growth, Thrive Themes main motto is creating conversion focused themes and plugins which convert visitors into customers and customers into clients.

Thrive content builder is an editor interface just like WordPress editor but here we can see and edit content in the web page just like how it looks when we publish the article.
As a publisher, we do hear a lot of times about "WYSIWYG" (What you see is what you get) editors, Thrive visual builder is 100% WYSIWYG WordPress plugin which allows us to experience the content how it looks when we publish the content while editing the content.
Thrive content builder plugin comes with another two features which are very important for every blogger to do paid campaigns and list building purposes.
- Thrive Landing Pages
- Thrive Lightbox
Thrive Content Builder Landing pages: It is a complete solution to create landing pages from scratch as well we have pre-designed templates to use it for various purposes like webinar registrations, contest pages, thank you pages, welcome pages, sales pages and so on.
Thrive Lightbox: It is a two-step opt-in box which works same like Leadboxes of LeadPages to capture leads from various places like landing pages and article content as content upgrades.
Because of this reason I mentioned in my article title as 3 in 1 plugin which gives 3 benefits in one plugin.
Now we will jump over to review about all the elements available in the content builder one by one and I will share where we can use these elements effectively.
Thrive Content Builder Elements
Thrive content builder has so many elements in it for every purpose, here is the screenshot of all the elements available.
I have taken 3 screenshots and combined these pictures in a single image to show you all the elements in the single image.
As you can see in the screenshot there are more than 30+ elements are available in the Thrive content builder which are very useful to build an aesthetically perfect content with it.
Here is the screenshot which shows you how I am editing this article in Thrive content builder.
Before moving further ahead with each element in the Thrive content builder, first I will show you how editor looks and how we can customise elements, here is the screenshot.
Every element has its own editor window which gives us the all the options we need to enhance our content, above screenshot is the paragraph element editor, like that we will find different editor options for different elements.
Now I will share some of the important elements in this Thrive content builder article because reviewing every element in this article is not possible, for you convenience I will make a video tutorial on how to use Thrive content builder.
Drag and drop facility of the elements, placing the elements in the editor interface, changing positions of the elements is very easy with the content builder and thrive builder assists us with a green dotted box to place the elements.
I use buttons a lot in my content particularly for affiliate links, in TCB(Thrive Content Builder) we can add 6 different styles of buttons, we can change the color, size, font, links with no-follow attribution.
Credit Card Icons
We have seen so many websites where they will include credit card icons at the bottom of the call to action button to show which cards are accepted in for the transaction as well it shows trustworthy feeling.
In my review articles, I use some icons which represent symbolic presentation to the topic which I am discussing to get the visual appeal.
Star rating is the another element which is useful to rate product functions in the review article, this element is very useful for affiliate marketers.
Sometimes we need to compare some things side by side or we need to add different columns side by side to show the comparison, adding columns is not at possible in WordPress editor but adding columns as per our requirement is very easy TCB.
Click To Tweet
So many professional bloggers are insisting on using "Click To Tweet" to increase the Twitter shares and so many of us are already using this option as WordPress plugin but TCB provides this option as an element in the Thrive content builder.

If you are doing a roundup post then you have to add different people's opinion in one single article, with TCB we can use testimonial boxes to share their opinions in different styles which look amazing in front readers eyes and it can impress the influencers.
We can add effects to our images in TCB to look different as compared to the normal WordPress editor, there are 6 types of styles available to use, like lifted, polaroid, rounded and framed styles if you notice the images in this article you will come to know about the image effects.
The responsive video is another great element which I use a lot in my blog, here we have to option to embed videos from various platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia.
We can add different (10+)styles to the video, we can customize the play buttons and the length of the video to run.
Here short 2 minutes videos where I selected lifted style to the video.
If you are a professional blogger having owned products or services then adding price tables is mandatory, here in TCB we can add pricing tables very easily to our content our landing pages.

We use lists more frequently in our content but in WordPress, we have only two options to select one is bullet point and another one is numbers.
In TCB, we have 6 styles of list icons we can use for our lists, here is the screenshot of all the 6 types of lists.
This element is very useful when you are running any contest, giveaway or offering registration for a free webinar for a particular period of time, this timer will help the visitor to know the value of that webinar or giveaway.
