Why I Chose Convertbox
In May of 2021 I ran a live summit called The Inspired Course Summit. I was absolutely excited to have amazing speakers join me during the summit, but unfortunately I ran into a plugin issue which resulted in my forms breaking right at the beginning of my live launch. It was a huge frustration/embarrassing moment not only for me, but also for some affiliates. Luckily I was able to quick.y resolve it by popping a Convertkit embedded form onto the website. This was a short term “band-aid” which didn’t really fix my problem- but did help me realize that I needed a better functioning form builder. Enter Convertbox. I was on the fence about Convertbox for a few months, until I decided to go with it – and now Convertbox is one of my favorite tools for lead generation and live promotional sales. I’m going to share some of my favorite features of Convertbox and how I’ve used them over the last few months in my business.
Scheduled Launch Sticky Banners
One of the easiest ways to integrate Convertbox and Thrivecart is to add a link on the button of a “sticky banner” to a Thrivecart checkout page. Alternatively, you can also link directly to a salespage for your course, program, service, or product. What’s awesome about sticky banners is that you can also add a fixed date countdown timer or an evergreen countdown timer. Banners can also be scheduled in advance!! This is something I really appreciate when planning a launch so I don’t have to wait until I’m down to the wire on my deadlines.
Slide-in’s as I like to call them are awesome for promoting your paid trainings and offers. I really like that you can customize the branding for your images, buttons, countdown timers, and fonts.
You can also create segmented pop-up’s that provide the user different options to opt-into. For example, if someone clicks a button, you can trigger another Convertbox slide-in to appear which allows them to opt-in to whatever lead magnet or freebie that you want them to join! This is similar to a feature found in a software called “right message”. At the time of this article, Convertbox is offering a lifetime access which is amazing for all of the features you get access to.
Sales Generating Funnel Opt-Ins
In-Line Embed Forms
At first glance, I didn’t really know what I could use Convertbox for, I honestly just thought it was just “another form builder”. But what I didn’t realize was how powerful and agile this software when it comes to generating leads and sales. Convertbox gives you the ability to track views, leads, and conversion rates. So any traffic you do receive on your blog post, you can actually get more sales through the use of email marketing. You can even create blog or landing page specific opt-ins so the people who are interested in a topic, get the right opt-in at the right time!

Facebook Ad Funnel Forms
When my forms broke a few months ago, I started to have some moments where I wasn’t sure if I should continue relying on my current systems – or invest in another platform to help deliver new email subscribers and leads. I did a ton of research on Leadpages, Clickfunnels, Funnel Gorgeous Funnels, and Ontraport – and eventually landed on Convertbox because of their lifetime offer.
Before, I was horrified at the thought of running Facebook ads and worried that my forms would break again or that I had to pay for a fancy landing page and form builder on a monthly basis. Thankfully I can now run ads without worrying about forms and can also even create a Facebook ad “funnel” with my Convertbox and Thrivecart to track views, conversion statistics, and track my ROAS (Return on Ad Spend). In case you’re curious, I’m currently inside of Amplify a monthly membership for FB ads. I also had some really great help from Amber Rose from Launch with Amber to get my lead generation campaign up and running!
