Release Date: Oct 18, 2018 | Thrive – Clever Widgets plugin allows you to easily show highly relevant content in your widget areas. This WordPress Plugin Transforms Your Website from Dumb to Clever in Just a Few Click.
How Clever Widgets Improves User Experience & Conversion Rate
This is how almost all websites use the space available the the sidebar, footer area or other widget areas: no matter which part of your website your visitor is looking at, they will always see the exact same content. This causes 2 major problems:
- It disregards the fact that different people come to different parts of your website for different reasons. Instead, it treats everyone with a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
- It forces you to show generic content in your widget areas, hoping to appeal to as many people as possible.
Your widget content isn’t particularly relevant to anyone and gets ignored by almost everyone.
Using the Clever Widgets plugin, you can easily show highly relevant content in your widget areas. Instead of a generic offering that barely raises an eyebrow, you can show your visitors the kind of thing that makes them say “this is exactly what I’ve been looking for!” And for you, that means more clicks, fewer bounces and higher conversion rates. Clever Widgets acknowledges the simple fact that your website visitors are telling you a lot about themselves simply by which posts and pages they are looking at. With the Clever Widgets plugin, you can now determine precisely where your widget content should be shown to visitors, based on categories, tags, post types and even down to include and exclude rules for specific pages.
How You Can Improve Your Site With Clever Widgets
Thrive Clever Widgets is a WordPress plugin that seamlessly integrates with the default widgets options in WordPress. For any widget you add to any widget area, you’ll see this new link appear, once you have the plugin installed. In an intuitive interface, you can then determine exactly where your widget should be shown.
The Speed Factor
Here at Thrive Themes, we are obsessed with speed. The speed of websites, to be more exact. The reason is simple: nothing decimates the user experience and ruins conversion rates like a sluggish website. That’s why we build every one of our products with speed in mind. With the Thrive Clever Widgets plugin, you might be wondering:
“Will it slow down my website if I create dozens of widgets with intricate targeting options?”
The answer is: absolutely not. Using Clever Widgets, only the widgets that need to be loaded on any given page are loaded. All of the widgets that are excluded on a page add no data to that page. In other words: displaying widgets with the logic in this plugin is no slower than displaying widgets the old “one-size-fits-all” way.
