"Don't tell me what you're going to do, show me what you've done."
As you guys all know, our global talent base and workflow app let you sync up with clients for paid writing gigs. But even if we’re not the ones providing the work, our aim is still to help you land more clients and earn more money — with less hustle and explanation on the sales side.
A wonderful portfolio that can be shared anywhere on the web is perhaps the single most powerful tool in the arsenal of a professional freelance writer, journalist, or content marketer.
That’s why we’re offering a simple and easy writer’s portfolio to contributors inside of network. In the weeks to come, we will roll the tool out to the general public as well.
Showcase your awesome samples
Our clients include SMEs, media outlets, and brand marketing teams. They work with freelancers on ContentGrow to craft excellent content, but a big part of their challenge is trying to discern who’s the most appropriate writer to engage with. That’s where the portfolio comes in.
