As you can see the Project Bidding Theme from Sitemile is packed full of features and benefits, but how does it all work and is it worth looking into?
Setup & Features
The Project Bidding theme from Sitemile is what we would regard a freelancer script, mostly resembling that of an upwork clone. However this script is uniquely versatile having the capabilities of being not only great for use as a freelancer site, but as a tender, lead selling or gig based website at the touch of a few buttons. Alongside this, being built on WordPress means that you can be up and running in just a few minutes after installing the theme file, leaving you plenty of time to make it your own. Even if you aren’t one to make your own changes, they offer a whole host of support and integrations that make life a whole lot easier than any PHP based alternative.
Multiple Use Cases And Full Scale Integrations Gives An Easy 10/10
Like always, looks is a huge part of any theme or script purchasing decision and this is no exception. We think the Project Bidding theme mostly resembles an UpWork Clone Script in terms of looks, which means users will instantly recognise and feel comfortable with your site with little changes required. Of course if changes are what you are looking for, then there are a host of things you can edit right out of the box to maximise your performance such as the addition of categories and widgets.
Don’t just take our word for it though, see how it looks yourself with the above snapshot. Once you’ve had a look, why not check out the actual UpWork website and see how it compares, there’s nothing there that cannot easily be replicated within the existing design.
Great ‘Out Of The Box’ Looks Make It A Good 9/10
Moving on to the framework behind this freelancer script, you can really start to see where the benefits of wordpress shine through. Not only does the Project Bidding theme offer the ability to easily make changes to your website without any knowledge of HTML or CSS it also comes with a range of integrations that can be turned on/off as you see fit. Examples include payment gateways, credit system, escrow and a fully fledged mobile application – however the app is only available to entrepreneur packages or above, so keep this in mind.
Each user who signs up to your website is greeted with their very own account area, with two account types offered (freelancer and project owner) that enable them to post jobs, apply for jobs, or express interest in a particular project (exactly like what you get with upwork).
Full App Integration And Well Thought Out Account Area’s 8/10
Now to the most important part, pricing. Luckily the Project Bidding theme has a number of pricing options to choose from starting from just $99, enabling you to pick the one that best suits your requirements. The basic plan covers all standard theme features across an unlimited number of websites however at $99 it doesn’t include any extensions or app integrations. Next up is the pro plan at $279 which offers a longer time-frame for free support/updates at 12 months rather than 6, with selected extensions included. From there you have the pro custom ($929), Entrepreneur ($2779) then the Entrepreneur Plus package ($3429).
We see the best value being held at either Pro or Pro Custom packages depending on your requirements, however the Entrepreneur package would be the one to go for if you have a large budget and some good idea’s to leverage your freelancer clone script against competitors. The ability for built in customisation from the Sitemile team has a huge value, especially for anyone that doesn’t have the ability to code themselves.
Low Starting Point But Higher Pricing For App Integration Gives A 7/10
Overall the Project Bidding Theme from Sitemile is a freelancer script to be reckoned with, easily allowing you to compete with industry giants like Fiverr, UpWork and People Per Hour. Coming out of the box with a professional finish you don’t need to waste time working on aesthetic features, giving you more time to focus on providing the user the best experience possible. We think that with a bit of work, you can easily leverage your site against these larger competitors by offering wider features and flexibility.
Being built on WordPress also provides a huge opportunity for quick ranking by Search Engines thanks to advanced SEO optimisation. Like always we recommend pairing SEO techniques with a Social Media strategy to ensure a well balanced and holistic approach to growth.
