    Well basically my clients range from shops to restaurant owners etc... I offer them a website setup service where I basically set them up with basic website for their business. I am in the process in creating a portfolio to show to future clients and would like to know what extra addons I can add to the wordpress sites im creating in my portfolio. Basically I want to make the site look very professional with minimal time used to create them. Maybe someone knows some nice addons that will benefit such clients in my category ?

    I'm not an expert in WP but surely there will be some great free/cheap addons where you can add an ecommerece side to the website. So your clients can sell products / take food orders online.

    Yes but that would be too much work to explain to them how to use it and setting it up for my current profit margin. I was thinking more like addons built specificly for restaurants and shops but not an ecommerce selling website.

    If they're restaurants, the easiest thing you can do is integrate with snapfinger.
    Online ordering as easy as it gets, you can customize css to match their current site as well.

    You can also connect it to a mobile site if your client is going that route, and it pretty much works seamlessly with the mobile platform.

    If you need another solution or workaround, let me know. :D

    I have been doing this business model. I always show them my previous sites that is related to the client's business. Always mention the key benefits of increasing potential customers online. I usually offer facebook ads, 2 year domain hosting, 2year web hosting, manual for using the admin of the wp site (involves screenshots), 1month free seo (a low competitive keyword), and 1year online support for maintaining the site. Since its a wordpress based site, I always use the White Label premium plugin to remove the traces of using a theme, plugins, and other non-user friendly wp settings.

    Add a Opt-in form above the page fold left margin and something so compelling the client would be a fool not to opt-in.

    Set up a shor in the upper left hand corner Add the want in exchange for an email.

    You now have autorepsonder series service that can be a newsletter and/or autoresponder (outsource). You can use the WP Plug-in Autoresponder and it is free.

    Same thing with the Mobile business.

    I'm refacing my entire service and just reselling hosting with a free website setup for my clients, 1 year domain name and 1 year hosting and as an added bonus a facebook fan page for their business linked to their website.
