Creating a visual portfolio? 4 Tips on getting it
just right
  • A visual portfolio is an excellent way to show
    off your work. Pictures just have a way of
    grabbing attention and pulling people in. With an
    appealing, well-made visual portfolio, you can
    turn those onlookers into clients, giving you
    even more exciting projects to choose from. Even
    if you dont come from a design background, dont
    be intimidated - everything that you create can
    be visualized in some way.
  • Because we know how helpful a visual portfolio
    can be for a freelancer, we at freelancermap are
    introducing a new feature that allows you to
    create just that without having to use an
    external site. To create a visual portfolio at
    freelancermap.com click "edit profile" and upload
    your portfolio in step 2. This is a chance to
    easily present your work to potential clients
    here are four tips to help you along the way

Creating a visual portfolio? 4 Tips on getting it
just right

1) Show off the skill you want to sell
  • This might sound like common sense, but a lot of
    freelancers get carried off when listing projects
    they have worked on. Its all about quality, not
    quantity. Moreover, it is about specific quality.
    If youre not offering a certain skill as part of
    your freelance activity, dont advertise it.
    Focus on what your primary working areas are and
    mostly list projects in those.

5
2) Share measurable results
  • There are very few things that clients like to
    see more than results. Make good use of that text
    field under the pictures by saying how exactly a
    job you did benefited the company you worked for.
    Was there a significant rise in traffic on a
    website after you wrote an article? Did you
    improve usability of a certain product? Speak in
    numbers if possible. If not, addressing how you
    handled particular challenges is often the next
    best thing.

3) Include time and cost of the job
  • When looking at a finished project of yours,
    there are three main things that clients want to
    know what did you do, how long did it take and
    what it cost. This reveals a lot about you as a
    freelancer approximate rates, how quick you work
    and what areas youre most comfortable in. These
    three details should be displayed as prominently
    as possible if a legal binding prevents you
    from straight up posting your rates, consider at
    least including a range.

4) Dont be afraid to include personal projects
  • So you only have a few commercial projects, but
    would like to fill in some more blanks? You
    should absolutely not hesitate to include stuff
    youve worked on in your own time! Showing a
    client that you care and are passionate about
    your work can convince them in ways that no
    boring corporate project can. Personal projects
    are somewhat specific and tips 2 and 3 dont
    necessarily fully apply to them. Maybe there was
    no profit and no measurable results, but thats
    okay. Showing off your personality as a is a step
    that even the most experienced freelancers among
    us could benefit from.
