I decided to use Journo Portfolio to showcase my editorial work because their software is easy to understand, and they provide engaging layouts for viewers. I am very proud of my pieces, and a portfolio is an obvious and exciting way to tell others that. Journo Portfolio has given me the opportunity to create a time capsule of journalistic journey and to share it with the world

Claire Blaha
Copy Editor

Journo Portfolio is a clean, straightforward site that aesthetically showcases my works for potential employers to review.

I can’t endorse this site enough and hope that other writers enjoy the same experiences I have had using it.

Colin Linneweber
Writer

I've been using Journo Portfolio Pro since 2017 as an undergrad and it's been an incredible resource starting out.

I recommend JP for anybody who doesn't want to spend absurd amounts of time/money figuring out domains or Squarespace/Wix.

Sharon Liu
Copywriter and content marketer

I've had a few portfolios on JournoPortfolio for the past several years, and it's been no less than a pleasure to use this platform. I switched from using WordPress for my portfolios because this platform is easy-to-use, the customer service is excellent and knowledgeable, and it's well-priced. I'd recommend this service to anyone who needs a portfolio they can launch online quickly and edit easily.

Dahna M. Chandler

I absolutely love Journo Portfolio. I had considered closely several other sites, but decided to go with Journo Portfolio and am so glad I did. It is super easy to use and looks extremely professional.

I like the template aspect, but I also enjoy that there are lots of options within the template to customize. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Jennifer L. Grybowski

I am very much enjoying the simplicity and ease of use.

Thank you for providing such a great service.

James Fitzpatrick

Journo Portfolio has been great for keeping all my articles in one place. Articles on other websites can be accessed on my portfolio and I can write new articles on my portfolio website.

I love the functionality and I recommend it to all my friends.

Nneka Otika
Content marketer

This is a wonderful resource. It's easy to use but flexible and customizable, and the help desk is very responsive.

Amanda Morgan
Publications professional

I host my digital portfolio on Journo Portfolio because they automatically create a back-up pdf of my work. Super important because stuff in the online world does just disappear sometimes.

Jessica Michael
Writer & Photographer

I found JP randomly while looking at portfolio sites. I like that the editing is fast and intuitive.

Even a free account is useful, and the analytics are still available. The creation process was easy, and I built the articles outside of JP and seamlessly dropped them into the portfolio.

Bryan Featherstone
Maker and Artist

I created my portfolio a little over a year ago. This was the first portfolio I've ever done & Journo Portfolio made it so easy for someone not familiar with website development.

If you're a creative searching for a simple way to get your work out there, give Journo Portfolio a try!

Not only is the platform perfect, but the customer service is Excellent, always asap. And Josh designed a beautiful page for my site that exceeded my capabilities. Bravo et Merci!

Elizabeth Acree

I found out about Journo Portfolio 3 years ago at the beginning of my journey as a freelance journalist. On top of being affordable and intuitive to use, Journo is amazing for multi-skilled people and whoever offers more than one service. As someone who wants to be able to showcase my work in different areas, I love how this platform allows me to do just that, but having a solid selection of templates for articles, but also having many customizable options for a variety of pages.

I’m a young professional, and I am glad I came across this platform.

I cannot recommend it enough.

I'm thrilled I could easily put together my own website!

Journo Portfolio is easy to edit and easy for me to add articles and photos. I've already gotten work from my site and I'm so thankful for this!

I chose Journo Portfolio because the site felt very easy to navigate and setting up my portfolio was a breeze.

What I love about Journo Portfolio is that it offers many beautiful templates and layouts and still gives you a lot of freedom so you can make your portfolio look just the way you want it to.

I really recommend Journo Portfolio.

Journo Portfolio just solved all my portfolio problems! I've tried SO many different platforms recently and nothing even compares to how easy Journo Portfolio is. If you're in the same boat, definitely check it out.

Ella Stewart

My website has been hosted on Journo Portfolio for several years now... I find it as easy to use as my social media accounts. The aesthetics are excellent which is an important consideration for me. The best part is I’m not required to take backups or update plugins as I did tirelessly on other platforms. The time and hassle I save is priceless.

Sampada Chaudhari

Fantastic site. So east to use, modern and sleek. Would definitely recommend it.

Gwen Wilkins

Journo Portfolio is amazing not only for writers.

I used it to step by step build website for my work and it works perfectly as a presentation of my business. Compatibility with social media plugins, variety of themes and flexibility of moving elements, creating articles together with possibility of integrating outer plugins such as chat support for you website... For almost no cost.
