    Website vs Google Doc Copywriting Portfolio

    One of the biggest roadblocks new freelance writers run into is setting up their website. There’s a huge myth out there tricking people into thinking that in order to get hired, you need to have a fancy portfolio website to show potential clients.

    This is simply untrue.

    Yes, at some point it might be a good idea to set one up. But that comes AFTER landing your first clients.

    As a beginner, you want to start earning money as quickly as possible to keep your motivation strong. Put together a decent-looking Google docs portfolio (here’s how to do it in 10 minutes), and start looking for clients. Changes are, you’ll never get asked about your website.

    Don’t let setting up a fancy website distract you from your main objective: Making money. Once you’ve landed a few clients, THEN you can decide if a website is worth your time.
