When it comes to build a directory or classified website, the HivePress plugin is really a great way to do that. On top of that, HivePress also offers several WordPress themes to get the most out of this plugin and build professional websites.
In this article, we are going to discuss WordPress themes for HivePress with which we can create professional services advertisement websites.
All these themes have free and premium extensions to extend the functionality of your website, if you want to add marketplace functionality, a charge per featured ad, etc.
The themes are fully compatible with Woocommerce and use their payment system for monetisation.
They are very light themes with a very clean code. They use Gutenberg for the design and are very easy to configure as. You can also import demo content with a couple of clicks so you will save a lot of work creating the structure of the website and you will only have to modify images, texts and colours.
Another advantage of these themes is their system of custom fields (attributes), so you can adapt your website to any niche.
With any of these themes and their extensions, there are at least 3 different ways to monetize your website and turn it into an online business.
TaskHive is a HIvePress theme focused on creating a marketplace for freelance services whether they are programmers, copywriters, graphic designers, etc. (fiverr.com, freelancer.com or upwork.com)
With this theme, users can register on your website as freelancers or clients and for each sale of service, you as administrator can take a commission.
ExpertHive is a HivePress theme focused on plumbing, electrical, masonry, etc. services. (Thumbtack, TaskRabbit or Airtasker)
With this theme, users will be able to register on your website as a professional or client and will be able to contact you through a messaging system. Clients will be able to upload their requests to a general space and professionals will be able to send their offers to clients.
Like TaskHive, this theme has a control panel for both the client and the professional where they can manage their data, announcements, messages, etc.
JobHive is a HivePress theme focused on creating and monetizing a job board website similar to InfoJobs or JobToday in a very short time.
With this theme, users will be able to register on your website as a company or applicant and you can monetize by creating membership packages.
ListingHive is a free theme that you will find in the WordPress repository focused on creating a classified ads website along with the HivePress, a free classifieds plugin.
With this theme, users will be able to register on your website and upload their ads and through an internal messaging system users will be able to contact the advertiser.
As with the other themes, users have ad management and a messaging panel where they can delete, edit, send messages, etc.
Well, as you have seen, they are very interesting themes and very easy to configure if you want to set up this type of business.
They have a very competitive price and the good thing is that you will only make one payment and you will get personalised support and automatic updates for life.
