Get Everything Online

While you can have a hard copy portfolio, we’re fans of creating a freelance portfolio Web site, as this is the easiest and simplest way to distribute your work. Scan hard-copy pieces onto your computer so everything is in one place; you can always print out copies if you need to. Take the time to create a Web site; with today’s sophisticated free blog hosts, you can create additional pages without having to fork over any money. One of these pages should be your portfolio.

Create an Order and a Design

Although you can organize your work chronologically or by theme, most Web users tend to spend more time on items listed higher on the page. This means they may never get to your best if it’s not the easiest to get to. And, while it may not be the most important part, your design does matter. Make sure your page is easy to navigate and looks legitimate. Check out this list of inspiring freelance portfolio Web sites or this easy step-by-step guide to building a freelance portfolio Web site.

Update, Update, Update

Finally, make a point to continually update your portfolio with better and newer work; your writing will always be improving, and your portfolio should reflect that. Following these three steps on how to create a stunning freelance portfolio will make it easier for potential clients to find you and for you to track your progress. The team here at Elite Editing wishes you luck!
