TaskHive is a brand new WordPress theme that makes it easy to create a service marketplace-style websites like Fiverr and TaskRabbit.
If you ask, the launch of this new theme really couldn’t have come at a better time. The impact of global events on the economy over the past year has prompted more people than ever before to try their hand at freelance work, while the popularity of gig-based services like Uber are seeing the benefits of ditching the 9-5 and going it alone.
What this means, is that if there was ever a perfect time to build a Fiverresque business that connects freelancers and other gigging professionals with the people who need them, it’s right now.
While that may have been easier said than done in the past, TaskHive simplifies the whole process of starting your own freelance marketplace business so that you can take your own slice of an industry that contributes some $1 trillion to the US economy.
Don’t just take our word for it though. In this comprehensive TaskHive review, we show you just how simple it is to set up your new platform and start giving the likes of UpWork and Fiverr a serious run for their money.
One of the things we love about this theme is that you don’t have to use it solely for freelancers or gig workers.
Designed by the makers of directory-building plugin HivePress, TaskHive is packed with features and endless customizable options.
This means that it can also be used as a marketplace for digital downloads. If you always wanted to take on the likes of ThemeForest and Envato, and develop a platform where creators could sell digital assets like WordPress themes, TaskHive will help you do that.
Here’s how it works:
