Its been 5 years when i started my carrier as a full time freelancer. Since then i have been working on Upwork when it was previously known as Odesk as a WordPress Developer and Designer.
When i started my freelance business i used to build websites using some premium themes or customizing them as required by the clients and i was good at that. The only problem i used to face was that when a client asks for a custom theme development, it was not like that i didn’t knew how to code custom theme, it was actually the time it used to take and if i increase my budget, most of the times client refuses to pay that much and so to move forward (due to lack of income sources) i have to accept that, i had no option 🙁
The average time for a custom theme with some complex functionality was around 1 to 2 months depending on various factors. So as i was building websites for some of my clients using some premium themes in much lesser time but those websites were not so complex to make my portfolio stand out.
Then i came to know about a plugin called Wp types which is one of the component of Toolset. I was able to build custom post types in seconds, add taxonomies to it and also custom fields without any hassle and in a matter of mins. There were other components as well like Views, CRED forms, Maps, Layouts and Access and they all combine to make a really powerful tool. You can learn more about their components and how powerful they are by visiting their website at https://wp-types.com/home/toolset-components/
I was able to build complex websites in a week with advanced functionality and also the biggest thing about this Toolset is that you don’t need to know PHP to use it ( however i am proficient in PHP) but good for someone who is a beginner or who knows just wordpress. I was able to build some really good complex websites in less than a week so it was like i can build 4 complex websites which was 4 times more than what i was able to do earlier.
Let it be any type of website like classifieds/ listing, Ecommerce or Directory website and almost all other niches. Toolset also offers some API hooks and very good support system which helps if you are stuck. It did boosted my freelance business.
However, it was easy for me to understand Toolset much faster and efficiently because i knew inside out of wordpress custom coding and how things work and now been working with Toolset since last 3 years i am now an expert in it.
So, if you are looking forward to boost your freelance business and build complex websites in less than a week without compromising the quality, go for toolset.
