How do I set up an online portfolio?

In this age of connectivity, it's a good move to make sure your portfolio is online to make it easy for existing clients to find you. And most importantly, to attract and win over new clients. Therefore in this blog post we are going to briefly summarize what steps you need to take and what things you can take into account. All this of course to make your portfolio website a success!

Let's start with the hosting package that is suitable for a portfolio website. It depends if you have a lot of media such as images or videos on your website. If that's the case then the choice often comes down to an SSD package in the 25 GB variant or the 50 GB variant. These packages use SSD disks and are therefore extremely fast. This will not only benefit your loading time but also your position in search engines like Google and Bing. They strongly take into account the loading time of your portfolio website. An SSD package can be ordered in a few steps at MijnHostingPartner.nl and is ready to use in no time.

What CMS will you use to build your portfolio?

This is a question that has no 1 answer. You will have to do your own research to find out what suits your needs best. Think of an ASP.NET CMS like Umbraco hosting or a PHP CMS like WordPress hosting. These are methods to ensure that you can set up a portfolio website without extensive technical knowledge. Take a look at our knowledge base and also Tuesday's blog post to perhaps make it with a bootstrap template.

Making your Portfolio Unique

With a Portfolio, it's important that you give it your own style. You can use cut and paste but this often shines through. Put effort into it and try not to steal items from others. Give it your own style by adapting the CSS with your own colors, design and unique images. Portfolios often use clean and crisp lines and a quiet layout. For example, turn it upside down!
