when i start my portfolio i was looking for high price webhosting (over 20$) it does not mean that you need a expensive webhosting or a unique theme

So Let’s Start:



1. Domain & WebHosting

The first step is to choose a good domain for your website/portfolio

or if you have your portfolio the theme must be with your company name or your name/username that you have choosen to start the website

it need to be really cool looking but not so modern it must be like a Fresh work!

It must inspirate the People to come at you for there work to come at you!



4. Content

The portfolio must contain your best work and some testimonials (unique not stolen & and will a proof link!)

what you need to have on your website:

  • Best Work
  • Testimonials
  • Contact Page
  • Service Page
  • Blog Page
  • About



5. Advertise

Advertise your website/portfolio on every forum you can get that is based on what do you do!

You can hire a company to do that but its really easy so dont wast your money by paying someone to do the work if its easy

unless if you dont have time!



6. UpDate

Update your website on every thing what have you done! and inform people via email if  there will be any change or a giveaway or something similer!




7. How to Get Costumers

Well what you need to get costumers is ask the old costumers that you have worked with to rate you ask them for all the things like on a raiting website, testimonails so the new costumers will trust you!


So thats it I hope you will start your website soon!
