The recent data on platform usage across enterprise level companies have revealed WordPress being number one choice. We can level it down to the simple blogs run by huge corporations, but that’s not always true.Recent data shows that WordPress is a number one choice for the enterprise level companies.

Of course, we use WordPress for simple corporate websites, portfolios, and blogs. And with the help of page builders like WPBakery, we are able to skip the coding part (a good thing if you don’t know how).
On the other hand, there are startup ideas that require a bit more effort than just a static website. Ideas that previously required PHP skills and time. Let me get you some examples – real estate catalogs, travel destinations, custom search for products, and so on. All these ideas require serious development, or maybe not.
Now, those of you familiar with the Lean Startup know that it all comes down to ‘Time to Market’. In other words, you want to deliver your products to the customers as soon as possible, which means you don’t have time to build a skyscraper.
The question is – does WordPress has tools to help you build complex solutions fast enough? Continue reading and you will find out.
WPBakery Page Builder and Toolset
The first time I came across Toolset plugin I thought – ‘Oh, I can build my own Airbnb in less than an hour!’ For a guy who is always in a rush, this sounds like a serious time-saver.
With the page builder, you don’t work with PHP that much so the combination of those two sat in my head. To find out more we talked with the Toolset team to see the capabilities of what can be achieved. We even set up an article on how to replicate your own bed and breakfast solution with ease.
Now that we had a tool that can reduce the necessity of PHP skills and the page builder to take care of the visual part, it was about time to make those two compatible. Let’s skip the details (who cares about development when you have end-product), the result is that we are now able to use WPBakery Page Builder and Toolset plugin all together to create advanced solutions like:
- Create a custom search;
- Display content as markers on Google Maps;
- Create custom signup forms;
- Create forms for front-end content editing.
These were just a few things that come to my mind. In fact, you can do so much more – just imagine!
