Thrive Themes FocusBlog Theme Review: Increasing Conversion

I started blogging in 2015 with a free theme from wordpress.org repository. Every time when I install a plugin used to feel the absence of something. Sometimes It was a feature or a dashing layout or proper color combinations or fonts or all of them I talked about.

I didn’t even know about a single premium theme. After some research, I came to know about Mythemeshop Themes. Really, all the themes in MTS repository are awesome. I used TruePixel theme for a long time on Myquickidea.

However, we do need to make changes with the time, so I decided to stop at Focus Blog Theme by Thrive Themes. It’s a multipurpose theme to start a blog or selling product/services. To make your site look more beautiful, The Thrive themes offer Thrive content builder to create beautiful landing pages.

Focusblog theme come up with each ​unique features which are required to grow as a blogger or an internet marketer. It's a conversion focused professionally designed theme to improve the readability. The inclusion of unique features (you will read below) make sure the landing page will convert well.  

Why did I choose Focus Blog Theme?

There were several reasons I bought focus blog themes. I wan to mention below few important ones:

I didn’t want to —

  • spend more time in changing and configuring themes
  • spend more money
  • recreate the blog identity when someone revisits the blog.
  • install extra plugins.

Being a blogger, these things matter a lot to me. I wanted to give a better user experience to my blog readers and Focus blog Theme helped me in this situation.

Whether you are running a site or a blog on wordpress platform, these things are always crucial.

If you aren’t serious about blogging, then just stop reading. You shouldn’t be having any mean from a premium theme. Better use these free themes with limited features and functionality.

You might Think that How Focus blog Theme is Different than Other Premium Themes?

This is an obviious question.

I had one same in my mind until I used this amazing theme.

I found some unique features in Focus blog theme that didn't have in any theme I used so far. Let's know about them -

The theme has inbuilt call to action to add anywhere on header, sidebar, or footer. It can help you driving sales or leads for your business. Even you can offer any affiliate product as I did on Myquickiea.  You can customise it more to improve the conversion rate.

Custom Shortcodes

Thrive Themes come up with the custom shortcodes to insert button, icon box, progress bar, price, etc that make a post/page media rich. Such types of posts increase the conversion. Many niches bloggers love thrive themes due to this feature only.

  • Great review and I guess you did a wonderful job by sharing this awesome review with us. I think most of the people who are looking to try new themes may check thrive theme once.

  • Well I think old theme providers such as studiopress doesn’t have shortcodes options. So I think using thrive themes will surely save lot of time in building or designing custom pages.

  • It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance”between superb usability and appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!
