Basically this is a non-verbal communication between you as a service-provider and your potential customer, and it’s almost the same as in a usual human acquaintance. Did you know that a person subconsciously determines their attitude to you in the first 0.3 second? It takes a little longer if you offer them your service since they have to find out what you are and what you do, but still a time period of deciding whether they like you or not is desperately small. That’s why having a proper portfolio means so much – it becomes an electronic version of ‘you’ with skills your customer or employer is interested at. So if you are aimed at creating an efficient and beautiful portfolio but you are not a web developer, you may consider using a template for creating one.
