Your online link, that is. Oh, and guess what? Your web presence says an awful lot about yourself…in fact, probably more than you’d ever like it to. With that being said, we need to emphasize the particular elements that help boost your digital portfolio if you ever intend to boost your credibility, ratings, and viewership.


Put In Work

Nothing says “I’m doing stuff over here” like an actual finished end-product. The tangible final stages of your creation are perhaps the most encouraging aspects any artist or designer can have. Do you blog? Do you vlog? Do you journal? Do you craft specially tailored website templates for small businesses? Do you work behind the scenes of some multi-billion dollar venture but are too shy or just really squeamish to mention the 3 Oscars, 2 Grammys, and Academy Award you have stacked on a shelf? (That’s okay; we are, too.)


High Profiles And High-Quality Profiles

Maintain an online web presence as well as an ostentatious glow about your website(s) that you frequent most. Among the many other important factors to building up a reputation is exposing yourself to the masses. Sometimes it’s better to even just have your name out there. Hewlett-Packard. We’ve all heard of it, but not all of us know that it’s the extended version of its much more famous moniker HP. The same policy applies for your online web profiles on Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn: keep a polished look that says “I’m doing stuff over here and I can be professional about it.”
