To Grow Your Online Tribe You Need to Keep Your Audience Engaged

Getting your members, students, and customers to stick around is vital to your online business’s success. Many existing options claim to solve the engagement problem by “dripping” course content to all your students at the same time, but is that enough?

You need the power to drip lesson content to individual students based on their behavior and course progress — without having to jump through a nightmare of technical hoops to do it.

Setting up a reliable drip schedule is hard and leaves you nervous about what content will be released to who and when.

You dread changing your drip schedules, because you have to update them for each course, individually.

Copying and pasting courses to apply fresh drip schedules for new cohorts takes hours, time you could spend growing your business instead.

Keeping track of what content your Drip Schedule will release when is tough if you can’t see what’s going on. With Drip for Thrive Apprentice that all changes.

Can dripped content be unlocked with student assignments or quizzes?

We’re working on it!

We’ve built Thrive Apprentice 4.0’s new Drip feature to provide flexibility to add exciting new unlock conditions in the near future – think assignment submissions or quiz completions.

We can’t wait to hear your feedback immediately after the Thrive Apprentice 4.0 launch, so we can prioritize which unlock conditions we need to add next.

Can Thrive Apprentice Drip do this specific thing?


We’ve designed Drip to be extremely powerful and customizable at every level, and it features a wide range of triggers and conditions (even Thrive Automator!).

Of course, when it launches, we’d love to hear your feedback on how Drip plays a part in your online course business.

Does this mean I no longer need a membership plugin to drip content?


If you were using a membership plugin simply to drip content, you can now set it up in Thrive Apprentice (and probably even get rid of yet another plugin subscription).
