Privacy-friendly Analytics Built-in
Our built-in analytics system allows you to quickly get an overview of how your site is performing. Track visitor's and page views and see the location and source of the traffic to your site.
Our analytics service doesn't use any cookies, trackers or scripts on your site that slow it down.
Need more powerful analytics? Easily integrate with Google Analytics or any other third-party analytics service.
Unlike most analytics services ours runs on the server itself so it doesn't use any cookies, trackers or scripts that run in your visitors browsers. This helps keep your site fast and privacy-friendly.
See a live timeline view of every visit to your site letting you know where they visited from, how they found the site and what pages they visited.
Want to know when someone has actually viewed your site? Our invite tool allows you to invite people by email and keep track of if they have opened your portfolio.
Features • Grow
Engage visitors, grow a following.
Turn visitors to your site into long-term followers by subscribing them to your portfolio to receive a weekly update.
Easily add a subscribe form to your page and customise how it appears. This lets visitors sign-up for a weekly notification of any new portfolio items by you on your portfolio.
We take care of double-opt-in and our Mailchimp integration allows you to sync your subscribers to a Mailchimp audience so you can send them your own newsletter.
Some people prefer to follow via RSS feeds instead of email notifications, allowing them to receive your latest updates directly via an RSS Feed reader. On Journo Portfolio every page has a built-in automatic RSS feed.
All of our plans allow you to add a contact form to your site to allow visitors to get in touch with you easily. This also keeps your email address private.
Add your social links anywhere that you want on your site and choose from various icon styles and sizes.
