Everybody wins! Craftory is complete with user profiles for Clients (users) and Craftsman (providers), notifications and messaging that allows providers and users the ability to discuss and manage jobs, as well as a Ratings and Testimonials system and so much more…

Powerful Search with Ajax

With significant time invested into researching the needs of handymen and woman around the world and the types of marketplaces available for people using this freelance gig economy today, we found that Search forms a large part of a user’s needs, the backbone for both providers and users looking for work, or work to do, which is why Search became a top priority for the development of Craftory. By using the power of Ajax we enabled Craftory to provide a deep, comprehensive and fast Search engine so that everyone can dive into the deep end and find what they need – fast, without timely page reloads. Ajax Live Search means you can see search results while you type and continue to narrow down as you type. It’s fast, funky and intuitive to use.

Perfect for Handyman/Craftsmen/Contractors, AirTasker Style

Craftory has primarily been developed {Like a Boss} as a full job board style system – allowing tradespeople and job providers to create comprehensive profiles, request job applications, apply for jobs listed and manage the entire process end to end. It can also be used exclusively as a directory style listing by removing job functionality, which would make an excellent listing/affiliate/marketing and SEO style website.

Rating System Integration

The success of these freelance style websites with users engaging directly with the providers relies heavily on user-generated ratings. It’s crucial that service providers and tradespeople have a way of getting feedback, with Craftory has a complete Review and Rating systems integrated with the backend and frontend of this WordPress theme. The Review system is for both Craftsman and Clients and as admin, you have the ability to remind both types of users to leave a review and rating for each job completed.

Generate Revenue

The ‘gig economy’ is powering people to change the way we think about employment, freelancing, working from home, remote working – it’s the new employment model and exactly why Craftory was created. You can generate revenue via memberships for your own family by helping others also create work for themselves, once it’s all setup and running, it almost takes care of itself.

Dedicated Ad Space

Once you have got your new website up and running, everyone will want a piece of that action and you can step it up a level by charging for Premium Ad Spaces. We recognized that need quickly and have provided carefully crafted dedicated Ad Spaces throughout Craftory to keep it really professional and make it easy to manage. Google AdSense is one example of mainstream advertising that is easy to setup and starts earning passive income quickly. Throughout Craftory there are several dedicated spaces that you can quickly and easily add your AdSense code too and your new ads will display beautifully on the screen, regardless of device type and size.

Comprehensive Profile Pages for Providers

Every Craftsman gets to create what we think of as a ‘mini-site’ to promote their craft. It includes a place for your personal info, a dedicated review section, expertise, hours of business, and personal website if they have one. The site assigns an overall rating to Craftory, gives you a dedicated space for social media links and includes geolocation mapping for ease of use with directions. Of course, it is all meticulously designed to look incredibly professional so that your tradespeople put their best foot forward and being optimized for Google means it is great for SEO too.
