For a small Studio or freelance just enough of Wordpress and woocommerce?

There are two people: one designer and designer second - coder, programmer. The programmer knows wordpress and woocommerce (experience 3 years), laravel knows is bad (no experience). Want to make a micro web Studio or freelance project. Please advise, does it make sense to spend money on advertising and offer only the development of wordpress and woocommerce? Or is it better to learn Laravel and then run ?

knows wordpress and woocommerce (experience 3 years)

Experience for 3 years may be different, but I like a man who really knows WP (12 years) and quite well WC dare to put this statement into question. There is a car nuances and subtleties that will not find it. And the bigger / more complicated the project, the more their climbs.

does it make sense to spend money on advertising and offering only develop on wordpress and woocommerce

Personally, I don't see a search of orders through advertising. If what is meant is can I use the WP/WC do the projects with good budgets and, consequently, to earn decent money - Yes, you can. In the world of WP is the hourly rate and $120/hour $200/hour. So anything is possible. The more experience and knowledge, the more successful pilot projects, the higher the earnings. Working in this niche for every taste and wallet, from govnosaytov on "premium"themes for a pittance, to large platforms with budgets lower than in the world of Laravel / Yii / Symfony / Whatever.
Of course, really good - don't know. But I want to eat. How else, in addition to advertising to seek orders? I understand You correctly that it is better not to spray? - alba_Feil commented on June 8th 19 at 16:55
How else, in addition to advertising to seek orders?

Start with the Western frilans-stock exchanges. Why Western? Because if you get stuck on local, it will get stuck in a miserable low-quality niche cheap bad code for a pittance. And instead of get decay. And not make any money, rogue who need a new start-up for $50 to gash you will not bring happiness. Customers do well, jump over his own head and soon enough word of mouth and repeat customers will close the question "want to eat".

I understand You correctly that it is better not to spray?

Yes. Laravel from your entry threshold. And in order for Lara to do everything well and properly, there is not one year of experience is also needed. WP have something that is enough to begin to close the question "want to eat" and get an opportunity to develop further, in parallel.

The key idea is to develop it is necessary in the direction "lights", and not where the fish is oily more than usual. If lights - you will thrash until you become an expert in this field. And experts in any field skim the cream from the market, it is a basic law of Economics. Better to be a highly qualified specialist for WP to work on the most interesting projects with the most sensible customers and excellent earning than the average for Laravel and to be interrupted by the fact that perepadet, with anyone.

But if Laravel rushing, of course improve it. But nothing prevents to close the question "want to eat" now with a stronger hand, which is WP. - Velva.Rogahn commented on June 8th 19 at 16:58
Thank you very much for the detailed response. On the foreign exchanges, as I understand it you need a free English? - alba_Feil commented on June 8th 19 at 17:01
In principle, enough basic + interpreter. But to teach English in General - probably even more important than to teach this most PHP. Because we live in the 21st century, and you limit yourself from the vast world of opportunities, a totally different level of income, experience, contacts and so on. - Velva.Rogahn commented on June 8th 19 at 17:04
The interpreter You mean Google? Maybe even give good advice about how best to teach this English? - alba_Feil commented on June 8th 19 at 17:07
Google or any other. How to teach? Persistently, persistently, stubbornly :)

For a start, there is such a thing as basic vocabulary. Read more:

And then naguglit themselves already. The point is that 1000 words, in principle, sufficient for fluent communication on a variety of topics. What if you have at least high school English, then 200 pieces of them you already know. To learn more 800 - no problem, right? Plus, the base stock you will quickly learn our specialized, technical. However, you are already very good need to know.

Further grammar. There is no need to force yourself all the times and other literary exercises. No one in the real communication that doesn't use all the much easier. Take in one hand and a grammar in the other and several thematic articles on Analyze the texts, compare the rules, and you will understand that you need to master.

Further - practice. Switch OS on the computer and phone in English all programs in English, stop to visit a Russian site, only to read in English, let the first and translator. At first it will be hard, but quickly gets into a rhythm, the main thing is not to give up.

Compare language learning with learning a programming language. It's the same thing essentially. First learn the basics, syntax, functions and constructs, types, and so on. Then learn to put it all together. And after a while the code itself is shed. And English will. It I as a philologist by training guarantee

for 3 years all WordPress can rewrite 3 times. not that "study".

yeah you customers are looking. to refuse the client if you do not know, you can always. - kaya.Kerluke79 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:13
for 3 years all WordPress can rewrite 3 times. not that "study".

To rewrite the kernel itself is certainly possible. Once or twice. But not thousands of plugins, themes, lessons and courses and other things, other things. And to make it all compatible with all the hostings, and older versions of PHP the more. And to catch all possible edge cases... well, in theory you can, but 1) not a fact, 2) what's the point?

As for the review - again, you can. In triarii. In practice, it is necessary to teach not only WP, but also a lot of third-party solutions, and everything else. And learn it is all right to use, solve real-world challenges with the mind - where is the WordPress way, where native and so on. It is not so simple as it seems. Especially in the case of such Legacy as WordPress. - Velva.Rogahn commented on June 8th 19 at 17:16

offer only development on wordpress and woocommerce?

Your potential customers don't need to.
Have a think about positioning. Development on wordpress and woocommerce - who cares?
The right website! Here is his offer.
When you call a taxi indicate what brand/model of the car should you arrive or you need to get from point a to point B? So with sites this situation.

PS and you can continue to go to the customer and the website are most likely not needed, they need customers/sales. You could offer through your website? You need to think like marketers/salespeople, and not as techies.

Nothing to brush up. Search for orders on what we understand. Declare it as your primary positioning, so customers will be easier to identify you on the market. WordPress is a popular platform worldwide, people who know its nuances, will always be in demand and we have in the West. Laravel and this is closer to a custom design that pulls the presence of a designer, approval of layouts, edits. In WordPress it's all solved by the presence of beautiful templates from which the client chooses.
