As a Freelancer Do You Have a Porfolio Site and if Not - Why Not!?
There are many freelancers on SEOClerks. And many more "out in the wild". Some that struggle to find work and new clients. They have all the skills and talents needed to do the things that people are looking for. But they don't keep a record of all their clients and the things they can do or have skills in. And while many freelance sites allow you to list all your skills and qualifications and experience etc. They don't have anywhere online other than that which they can show to people such as prospective clients.
This doesn't have to be an extremely professional looking site with tons of features and "bells n' whistles" on it. It can just be a simple one page site that lists out what skills you have, what experiences you have and maybe even listing some of the most prestigious clients you've worked for in the past or even samples of your work (with their permission). And if you've worked for some really big names or brands in the past, names and brands people are familiar with, you can use this as leverage.
Most people who see names and brands and logos and things they can identify with will be much more likely to place their trust in you and your services if they see that.
But more than this, a simple portfolio site can help to bring in new clients and get you more work. And it can be advertised or marketed and promoted everywhere too. Such as on social media sites, given out to people, emailed to people. Even put on a business card or leaflet or flyer that people can visit and go to. You could even create a QR code which people can scan on their mobile and be taken to your site and put that everywhere.
But seeing as having a simple portfolio site as a freelancer can be a useful tool that can get you more work and clients. Why don't more freelancers have one?
Are you a freelancer? Do you have a portfolio site?
If not why not and if so have you find it to be useful to you?
