Alternative To OptimizePress For WordPress
More Info

In continuing this series on alternative software and services to replace expensive or outdated, But popular, platforms in this video I’m going to introduce an alternative to OptimizePress 2 which seems a bit dated to me.

Please note that I still have OptimizePress installed on this website, but I am going through the process of phasing it out.

In the past 12 months there has been significant forward movement in the PageBuilder space for WordPress, and I have to say that OptimizePress just feels clunky and old. That is my main motivation for introducing the alternative that I am currently going “all in” with.

This alternative suggestion, Thrive Content Builder, is so much easier to use then OptimizePress mainly because it is what is known as a “Front End PageBuilder”.

That means you are able to see exactly what you are building as you are building it. Its a cinch to work with and fun too.

Let me know what you guys think.

      I realize the price is not the same as shown in the video anymore?

      Thank you so much for making this video. I was just about to pull the trigger on Optimize Press before viewing your video. I'm going with Thrive!

      Adam I just had a conversation with the support team at Optimize Press regarding the cost for the update ($59). I do not feel it's fair to charge for the updates. Support ok I get that but without the wost recent update I cannot use the page builder feature with the new wordpress 4.5 bit out of touch as to the amount of competitors are out and gaining ground on them.

      hi Adam, was thinking of getting optimize press but since seeing your video of thrive then might go for this….
      Can you make a membership site with it? or do you just need to add in another plugin that will then work with thrive?

      @Roger P for some reason I don't have the reply option to your comment. You asked about this compared to Divi. Divi does not have a front end visual editor, it is tucked away int he WordPress admin, and is not WYSIWYG. So the time to put a page together is much longer because you have to constantly click save, then refresh to view the page, then go back and make changed.

      Hey Adam, great video about Thrive Themes. Awesome find!

      I will absolutely be using them for my many of my website needs. But the one thing that I notice Thrive doesn't offer is a solution for a presentable, and up to date membership site. Is there something that I missed? or do you know of another great option for membership sites as well? I ask because that was the main area of decision that had me sold on using Optimize Press. It was kind of an all in one deal for me. So if there are no other offers for membership sites, or should I just stay with optimize press?
