Colten's Success Story Highlights

About Colten

When Colten got started studying Japanese in 2005, there weren't many good resources available online to guide him — especially when it came to learning the Japanese pictographic writing system known as Kanji (漢字).

After creating his own Kanji study posters, Colten realized how valuable they were and started selling them online as a physical product in 2014.

“All I did was put information together, package it nicely, build a website, and people bought it! Then I was getting money in my PayPal account… crazy!”

That's how RisuPress.com was born.

But Colten never liked the look and feel of his first website...

... that's why he decided to get Thrive Suite in early 2019 to finally create the e-Commerce and e-Learning site he'd always wanted.

Colten's Thrive Themes Experience

  • Colten starting using the Thrive Architect page builder in 2017, but decided to get Thrive Suite in 2019 to receive early access to Thrive Theme Builder so he could finally rebuild Risu Press on a tight budget.

  • Thrive Theme Builder's site setup wizard and Smart Color branding tool transformed a single hex color code and instantly auto-populated the Risu Press site color scheme you see today.

  • Thrive Architect's Smart Landing Page and Block templates help Colten create new content that always looks like a PRO team of web designers built them.

  • Colten took the lessons he learned from SEO Sprint to create a new Risu Press site structure and content plan that are now reaping some serious organic traffic rewards.


“Being able to build a site that looks like a TEAM of people worked on – when it was really just me in my basement – is a huge benefit and all because of Thrive Themes.”

  • Colten scaled his Kanji poster sales to 5-figures in 2020 and is using that success to grow his business with additional e-Learning and e-Commerce products in 2021.

  • After 7 months of SEO Sprint inspired content creation, Colten is now seeing more-and-more of his target keywords ranking in top 3 and top 10 spots!

  • Colten's big 2021 push is to use Thrive Apprentice as his self-hosted LMS solution to start selling digital products like Japanese language learning courses. 

“With Thrive Themes, you end up with a site that looks polished, but non-users can't tell the site was built with templates. It feels like the person who built the site was very competent.”
