Create your own WordPress toolkit

Download the support files for this WordPress tutorial.

Since its inception back in 2003, WordPress has evolved from a blogging platform into a fully-fledged content management system. This process of evolution has spawned a new industry within the WordPress ecosystem, offering paid-for WordPress themes, plug-ins and other services.

While custom development work on projects is often an ideal route, it isn’t always the most efficient in terms of getting the task done. When using WordPress in combination with paid-for WordPress products, it’s often difficult to sell the customer on the concept of: ‘I am doing the job for you, and am using these third-party paid-for products to do so’.

In this tutorial, we’ll be discussing how to create a unique upsell for your customers, through a customised toolkit plug-in, to enhance your WordPress-powered projects.
