Welcome Coffee Powered Systems equipping women with actionable steps to overcome overwhelm and streamline business and life. So grab your favorite drink and come hang out with me. I'm your host, Miranda Merten.


Hey, friend. Welcome back to Coffee Powered Systems. Today is Tip Tuesday, where I give you the skinny on an app or a tool that could be useful for your personal productivity. Today's. Tip is all about ThriveCart and from their website it says Create high converting Cart pages, upsells and affiliate campaigns with ease. So I am talking to you about ThriveCart today because it is probably one of the best investments I have made that has been super consistent since I've had it. And what ThriveCart is if you haven't heard of it before, it is a shopping cart platform that you can pretty much integrate anywhere.


However you do business, you can add it to your website. You can use the pop up buttons. There are a number of features that are included with ThriveCart. You can add upsells and down sales and bump offers, which makes it super easy. If you've got multiple products after they've checked out with one of your offers, you can add a higher. I'm sure you've seen it before where you can add something that says, hey, wait, before you go, why don't you check out this offer and you can kind of tie things together?


If they don't like that offer, you can down sell them. You can do a whole lot with it and you can add subscriptions payment plans. ThriveCart actually has an affiliate area, so you can add affiliates if you do run affiliate campaigns as well. It's super customizable. You can add tripwires trials, split payments. There's a lot of features on ThriveCart and most people I don't think even use all of the features. You can even integrate it with your membership sites like Member Press or Member Mouse. If you already have courses and platforms elsewhere, they have a lot of direct integrations.


I use it with my Active campaign, which is the email marketing system that I use, and I integrate it with that as well. So if I have someone check out with an offer or place an order, then it can tag that person in Active campaign, and I can either use that just for information. And maybe I want to email everyone that was tagged with that product later on, or I can drop them into a campaign so that they get started dripping emails out in relation to the product or the offer that they just signed up for.


So it has so many different features. I encourage you to go on the website and check out the full list and see if it's something that you might be interested or something that you need. Now. Usually I will give you products and offers that are free or low priced, but the Cart has been so consistent. I think it's worth bringing up here, and I think if you're going to sell anything online, a shopping cart is probably something that you want to invest in. ThriveCart. As the company has been very consistent, they just continue to add features and make things better.


There's never any downtime. I've never had a problem with them. I actually purchased Thrive Card in mid 2020, but I've had my eye on them since, like 20, 17, 20, 18 back when one of the marketers that I was following Navid [Moazzez], he actually was marketing it, so I flagged it and I kept my eye on it. The price has been 495 for a lifetime payment, and I'm going to be honest with you, they've had the same price forever, even though when you go on the page, it says it's a limited time offer.


They could raise the price at any time. They don't know if it's going to be raised or if they're going to go to a monthly payment. I'm not saying that it won't, but it's been the same price for years. So it's 495 for a one time payment. Or you can also add their Pro option for 195. It gives you a little bit more of a robust affiliate platform and a couple of other features. I've never needed the extra features, but you can take a look at those.


It's on an Upsell offer. Once you click the checkout button and they'll tell you exactly what's included in that what I really love now. The last couple of months, they've actually added a Learn platform. The base price, just the 495 includes the Learn platform for free. They also do have an upgraded Learn Plus platform, which has a couple of more features probably not necessary for anyone that just wants to house the courses. But I believe it's another $195 for Learn Plus, and that's just a one time payment as well.


So if you are a course provider, you're not going to find a really great learning platform that's not monthly payments or charging you some kind of Commission fees or anything like that. So I really love that you have this option to include their Learn platform. You can take a look at my just grab one of my free offers. I'll put some links down in the show notes for you. Once you go through that process, you can see the checkout process and also what the learning platform is because I just switched all of my courses over.


There are a couple more that I have left to bring over, but I switched them over to my ThriveCart platform, and you can go through one of those and see exactly what it looks like. If you are in the market for a course platform. So for about $500 or if you upgraded, maybe like between $6,700, you can get a Shopping Cart affiliate platform and a course platform one time fee. Don't have to worry about anything else for life. That is amazing. I think you should definitely check it out if you are in the market for that.


And like I said, usually I won't give tools that are this high price, but I really think that some tools are worth investing in. So take a look at that. It's thrivecart. Com and I will drop that down below for you. And that is the tip that I have for you today. I'll see you next week.
