Marketing yourself online is a tough business. Sure you can push yourself with social media marketing or SEO. But the fact is, depending on who you’re trying to talk to, this is only part of the picture.
For maximum exposure, choose an online portfolio to push your work out to the right people.
But if you have little coding knowledge and just as little available, time what do you do?
Enter sites like Behance, DeviantArt, or Dribble – all great portfolio sites that will help you get your work out on a global stage.
The trouble is some of them are paid, or have paid options that are available for free on other sites.
Also how much money do you have available for marketing? And what media do you tend to work in?
Not only that but you need to pick a portfolio site that matches your goals.
Want a new job? Then go for a portfolio site with a job board. Perhaps choose a site that actively puts your work in front of likely employers like Krop or Coroflot.
If you’re into networking with like-minded creatives you may select DeviantArt or Behance, depending on the type of work you produce.
