——⁣

⁣➡️The main reasons why so many of us don’t have an online portfolio but have great SM are Perfectionism and Lack of time⁣ On the opposite side, if you’ve spent months building your portfolio, but didn’t work on your SM presence - you’ve wasted these months as no one will find you. The best time to build your portfolio is when you already have some SM presence and want to boost yourself to the next level.

——⁣

➡️MUST have in your portfolio:⁣⁣

——⁣

✅ About you section⁣⁣

✅ Your services and industry expertise⁣⁣

✅ 4-8 case studies highlighting your process⁣⁣

✅ Logos and past clients with human testimoniaals⁣⁣

✅ CTA’s - Make sure you have your email or survey form to take the next steps⁣⁣

——⁣

⚠️Keep in mind:⁣⁣

Be aware and honest with yourself and your clients about who you are and what you can offer.⁣⁣

——⁣

To do this brainstorm and answer these questions:⁣⁣

1️⃣ Who you are as a person, what are your internal passions?⁣⁣

2️⃣ What are your hard and soft skills?⁣⁣

3️⃣ Who do I want to work with? (industries, incomes, representatives)⁣⁣

4️⃣ What are these clients needs? Do you have what it takes to solve their problems?⁣⁣

5️⃣ How do you make yourself noticeable among «these clients»⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Wow, i read the whole post. thank your for sharing :D but i have my own struggle as writing my portfolio. I'm a Graphic Designer myself, but i don't know what to put in my portfolio to apply some specific job. like, i want to apply Logo Designer job, i put my logo related work.

Different story if i want to apply to UI job. i make another portfolio with only UI related works. Sometimes this confuse me :/

      bro, u can't mistake it. Feel free to add both, and say something like "Logo and UI designer, I make your product profitable". I mean that is random sentence, but the point is to have good message which make you think I want that guy, I trust him. And of course, have great work to follow up that message.

      Whatever skills you have, either you are designer or developer, or something else, it's always good to have basic of copywriting, sales, business.

        You may not need to talk/write much about yourself. Instead say how u can help them. They came to your website cause of their needs.

        Btw, check this short video i found yesterday on The Difference Between Good and Great Sales People
