Either you work in creative or multimedia industry, you probably want to showcase your work online. If not, then I suggest you to. You usually get discouraged when you need to set up the website for it, you would feel that you need to spend a lot of money to have someone to build or design it for you. That is if you are not familiar with web development.
Luckily many free or premium applications are now available for you to choose to quickly create your online portfolio and resume, with easy-to-use interface to manage and regularly update them. Here is a shortlist of ones that I found to be really nice and are packed with features that you will mostly need:
Carbonmade is one of the most popular online portfolio services with many features. You can create a free account for up to 5 projects with 35 images. Whoo! pro plan is available for $12/month, where you get 50 projects with up to 500 hi-res images and 10 high quality videos.
Coroflot is focused for creative industry with a very active job board. Based on their About page, it is hosting portfolios of over 150,000 creative professionals and students.
Raveal is another one that you can consider. It is oriented on the social media and search engines parts to make your names easily heard by the rest of the world. Its Free plan gives 100MB of storage, while the Professional plan provides 1GB storage with some additional features.
Need more functions or different look? Then installing WordPress with a theme optimized for portfolio might be the best and easiest solution. I will save that for different post.
