As I was shopping for hosting options for an online course, I discovered Thrive Apprentice, which is part of Thrive Suite. After checking out some third-party platforms and a few other alternatives, I chose Thrive Suite.

It’s the smartest decision I’ve made after I decided to create some online courses.

This all came about when my friend Kim M. Clark suggested I turn my book, The Simple Facts About Self-Publishing, into a master class. The idea was intriguing, but I thought I should start with something smaller.

I’d done some preliminary work on developing a presentation for how businesses could use Medium as a content marketing tool and decided to turn that into an online course. The result was Use Medium to Grow Your Business.

Use Medium to Grow Your Business

Thrive Suite provided all the tools I needed to create a course with all the elements courses offered by large companies have — and so much more. Even as I write this, I’m still exploring all the cool things Thrive Suite can do.

Here’s a brief overview of the easy-to-use tools in Thrive Suite:

  • Thrive Theme Builder. Build a WordPress website.
  • Thrive Architect. Create landing pages and funnels using 300+ easy-to-customize templates and Thrive’s landing pages technology.
  • Thrive Leads. Create opt-in forms to build an email list.
  • Thrive Quiz Builder. Build quizzes to generate leads and increase social shares and engagement.
  • Thrive Apprentice. Set up online courses that you can either offer for free or put them behind a paywall and charge for them.
  • Thrive Comments. Increase visitor engagement on your website by gamifying your comments section.
