How to Build a Portfolio Website From Scratch- A Handy Guide

Important points to consider before starting a portfolio website

  • Always include the best work that you have done before.
  • You must be sure to showcase your work to your client before they contact you and provide your work samples accordingly.
  • Will your sample still work in the future, or you need to improve the design more to make that sample work.
  • You have to be specific about your skillset and mention only those skills you will work with in the future. If you are a web designer, then there’s no need to mention anything about your freelance writing skill if you’re not looking to offer this service any longer.
