I have been using foliolink for a few years. I have also tried squarespace for my portfolio.
Although foliolink is more expensive than squarespace, it is much easier and quicker to add/remove/re-organize portfolios. I can swap themes and customize my site without having to rebuild it or add all the images again.
I would recommend Foliolink.
I have been with Foliolink for about eight years and haven’t had any serious problems at all. Their templates, as well as making changes to images and uploading new ones, work very well. Foliolink regularly provides new templates for users to consider which is very helpful and switching to a different template is a very smooth process. They are also quick to respond to questions and provide solutions. They provide users with a promo site that I haven’t used, but may eventually.
To summarize, I have been very pleased with Foliolink and I have recommended it to friends and colleagues.
I have been using Foliolink for a long time, probably at least 8 years. I really like the look and feel of the website I built, and it was super easy to build, and super easy to add to.
I’m not sure how effective Foliolink is, in terms of attracting potential customers. A few times, I have gone in, and put in key words on my photos, but I have never gotten a request to buy an image through Foliolink. However, I am a semi-professional photographer, meaning that although I sell my work, I make my living from my consulting business, which is unrelated to my photography. So I haven’t really tried that hard.
I've used FolioLink for years -- left it for a bit around 2014 or so, and attempted to use SquareSpace, which I found impossible to adapt to my needs. It wouldn't let me put portrait and landscape images into the same folio, among other issues.
FolioLink works for me. Their tech support is good, and I can update (which, like many of us, I don't do often enough) without a lot of hassles. I must be honest, I don't take advantage of all they have to offer, and perhaps if I did, my response would be different. But for what I've done with them, I've been totally happy.
I have had a Foliolink website for a number of years, they are good to deal with.
Tickets are answered in good time, they keep you up to date and you can contact them by phone.
They also arrange having a session by phone if you want it. So all round communication is good.
They are possibly a bit more expensive than some of the more high powered web hosters.
They are not always trying to sell you something.
I have had this website for approx. 10 years.
I works fine. Easy to set up. Easy to change the skins/layouts and colors. Easy to use to create and build.
I have probably built (for work, my kids' schools, PTSA, sports teams, etc.) 10 drag and drop website and this is as easy as they come.
I originally chose this website because the layouts were more interesting than others I looked at...more artsy". They have a ton of other features that don't relate to my business so I have used them.
As part of the renewal processes each year I can make a copy-cat website that is private and play around with different designs and skins while still maintaining my public site...this is fun, too.
Would I use it again? Yes.
I can give an unequivocal recommendation to use Foliolink, and the support staff have been nothing but constantly helpful. In particular, my sites have always remained stable. For best results, one should upload Jpeg image files no larger than one MB.
Their compression technology allows for recreating images with field depth (as in this photograph of mine from Iceland) rather than the hard dry arid look commonly associated with digital photography. I always with traditional media.
I switched from livebooks to foliolink about 6 months ago. Livebooks removed the paypal shopping cart and the web pages were not friendly to my older clients. Fpliolink is easy to set up and manage. They have all the options that I wanted plus the shopping cart. Most of my clients will see my work at a gallery or art show and then go to the website later to purchase especially during the holiday season in Vermont. I wanted a minimalist site that focused on the wildlife images.
I have been very happy with my Foliolink website.. I used one of their templates for the set up and found this very user friendly and well designed. For an artist like myself Foliolink fit my needs very well. The site is easy to update and reads well. The cost is also reasonable.
I have been with Foliolink since about 2005 when it was one of very few available for artists without coding skills. I really like the layout options they offer and they make it easy to add things like a PayPal button. I use the simplest, cheapest plan they offer ( no flash, etc. I am a painter rather than a photographer and my work has a bright, primitive, somewhat cartoonish quality that really works with simple 2D pages rather than multidimensional flash. The tech support is excellent. I really like foliolink—239.00 per year. Totally worth it.
I definitely would recommend Foliolink. They are easy to work with, their on line documentation is straightforward so relative" novices can get up and running and you have a lot of choices for designs. I have had others sign up at my recommendation and they were all happy with the results.
I definitely recommend using Foliolink. It's a bit more expensive but worth it if you are an artist or photographer. There are plenty of layouts to choose from and they have a really good more options/help section with tutorial videos. I built my website on my own and I'm not even tech-savvy. The IT support team are really nice. They helped me with setting up and linking my Google account to my website domain.
I like foliolink because it was easy for me to do it myself and I’m not very good at that kind of thing. Whenever I had a question they called me back or emailed me by the next day with the answer. Not a lot of customization but enough for me and I think the options all look professional. I wanted to be able to maintain and update my website by myself
Foliolink works for us. We use 3 different / separate accounts for our portfolios. Smugmug (which we additionally use privately) is considerably less expense; however Smugmug doesn’t offer the design options of Foliolink.
I have two foliolink websites and would definitely recommend them. Their ease of use, customer service and dependability are great.
I would highly recommend Foliolink although I can’t compare it to any other template based hosting/design sites because I have only ever used Foliolink. Before that I spent a lot of money on having my website custom designed, and then had to pay and wait to make any changes. Foliolink is easy to use and, if you do need any support, they are great!
I do like it a lot. It is very easy to use tool, you can change your entire site design and layout with a few clicks, it is optimized for mobile and you can manage SEO and do some custom coding. I have recommended it a few times.
I have been using this platform for a number of years now and I am happy with the functionality and ease of use.
I would definitely recommend it for inclusion in your guide to art / photography website builders.
I would recommend Foliolink. It seems to be a good choice for visual artists. I like that I can update my Website myself — add images or text. They also have a good support team who will help if needed.
I would recommend it ABSOLUTELY. By now I have had it for so many years ( 10+ yrs. maybe ) I would not know if there is any better platforms out there. For me it is such a great feture that you can switch platforms with on CLICK .
I would recommend Foliolink. They have great customer service and they are always adding new features. When I was first interested, I called and they walked me through the set up of my entire website, spent hours with me on the phone. This was just to show me how it worked. I did not have to sign up if I didn’t want to. They were so terrific and the site was easy to use once I learned it, that I signed up and they published the website. You can go to foliolink.com and look at the different sample websites. They have a lot of options and you can switch from one format to another without re-entering the information. I highly recommend Foliolink.
Foliolink is definitely easy to use and it suited my simple needs. I was looking for a way to have a web presence for my existing clients. It was never intended to generate new work as much as to be used as a reference for my customers.
I have been with Foliolink for 2-3 years. I am about to move to word press site.
I find it limiting on somethings that I do such as sharing photographs with clients. It gets complicated quick if you want them private.
Overall, It is an easy site to use, but they are a bit pricey…
I’m happy with it- I don’t update very often so it’s not like I could comment on its functionality. Mainly I like that the photos display nice and big and the interface is minimal.
I like foliolink. I can update it myself easily. It is a bit expensive. There support staff is terrific.
I really like the platform. It was very easy to get my site up and running. I like that you can switch themes quickly and easily. They also handle the mobile device site creation very well. However, other services are popping up that are doing the same type of thing for less money. Foliolink is expensive.
I really like using Foliolink. I’ve been with them for years. They have great customer service and they’re always working to improve and add new designs to keep up with the changing technology, as well as adding special features.
I like Foliolink very much. The technical assistent I got from them have been outstanding. I have been with them for many years now.. Never had any trouble with my website. My favorite person to talk with at Foliolink is Zaida. She is extremely helpful and positive.
Foliolink is excellent. I've used them for about 10 years now. They're very responsive in regards to technical help, and they have a large number of website templates which they are constantly adding to.
I like it because it is easy to work with and show my paintings. I can upload work fast and editing is easy. The templates are easy to change out if I want a different feel to my home page. I would recommend it as a simple way to show work or merchandise.
If you’re a still image photographer and aren’t interested in doing you own website design, I would recommend Foliolink. Editing is intuitive, the people are accessible and easy to work with and there are a number of different templates available, so it’s easy to change the look of your webpages.
I switched to Squarespace before my time was up with them.
Partly because I wanted a different “store” user experience rather than the traditional photo portfolio. But In doing so found square space infinitely better.
Basically Foliolink technology is horribly clunky at best, and any technical question is answered too superficially. Their platform is relatively more pensive, antiquated and they charge a premium for any tech support.
Squarespace is a technology marvel, cheaper and the 24/7 support is some of the best support of any industry I have experienced. There really is no comparison. State of the art modern web building compared to clunky 1992 user technology.
I dont want to sound too critical as Foliolink was helpful but I also design software for a living and can’t imagine how Foliolink will survive while Squarespace seems like the Google of modern web platforms. I think they are better that Wordpress or wix.
I have found Foliolink to be an excellent site for my photo work…I like their portfolio template options and that the site is relatively easy to work with, organzie…The Foliolink people are always helpful when there are questions and usually get back with thorough answers/solutions within a day or so. Generally a definite thumbs up.
I have had a Foliolink website for over 10 years and I would recommend Foliolink to anyone who wants to develop a great website. They have many design templates to choose from and they made it easy to set up and update over time. I think they were one of the first template user based design websites to exist. I use my Foliolink website for my photography.
I love foliolink. I would absolutely recommend the site. My site desperately needs to be updated, but that’s on me not them!!!! They have so many different options and are always providing new templates. As well, they have amazing people on their staff that can help with any questions. Definitely recommend their site.
I like Foliolnk although I don’t have much experience with other companies to compare. Templates are easy enough….with a few glitches. They could probably make it easier and a little less expensive but I have nothing major to complain about. I think the template designs are clean and appropriate for creative professionals. Customer service is very good.
Foliolink was what I was looking for a few years ago and solved the problem for me. I wanted a portfolio website that was easy to use, which its is. I think that it might be over-priced and I think that the size of images that you can upload/display is kind of limited. There are probably better services out there, but I am just too busy to seek them out, so I continue with Foliolink.
I have been using Foliolink for many years. They were one of the first company's to offer pre-designed website templates and I found it easy to create and maintain my website. As I have gotten busier with my photography work, I don't update as often as I should. But the advantage I found, was I could update the site while I was traveling. They also have good support and will do some custom work for you if the need arises. Yes I would recommend Foliolink as a good choice for people looking for a web building company to build their own site.
I use foliolink and enjoy using it, as it is easy to use and pretty intuitive and I don't have time to spend developing my website as it is not my primary means of making a living. I don't make any money doing it...mostly for PR.
I would recommend Foliolink. They have a good product, and provide good support. However, if I had to do it over, I would take a closer look at Photoshelter, which I like very much!
I’ve been using FolioLink since I launched my business website in 2011, and I would recommend FolioLink to anyone looking for website support, especially those in the arts. The tech support and staff at FolioLink are excellent. They continually add new customizable design templates that are created with the arts and artists in mind. I’ve found their web pages easy to build and update, creating my own unique web identity. They continue to incorporate newer technology for display and commerce in their offerings. And they were very helpful to me a couple of years ago when I needed an extension on paying my annual fee. I have been very happy with my relationship with FolioLink.
I would recommend Foliolink. Everyone has very different needs and the online art world has gone VERY quickly from just a viewing place to marketplace. In this way I believe Foliolink has kept up, but I do not use my website in that way because I have a gallery that sells my work directly. They have always had excellent customer service. I have been with them for over 12 years now and I have only positive things to say. They try very hard to have new templates, be user friendly and also have designers that will work with you if you do not want to build your own site. The old back end websites were much harder to build, but now they are super user friendly and a 10 year old could build a site.
I would recommend it. While one needs a bit of tech savvy (skills in editing images is helpful), it’s easy to use and has many layouts and additional customization options making it possible to adjust for your specific needs. Customer service is excellent as well. My favorite thing is the ability to switch to a different design almost seamlessly.
I would definitely recommend them. Their support is very good and fast. When I revamped my site last year they held my hand all the way through and made changes that I needed but couldn’t do myself very quickly.
I've been using Foliolink for years. I think it's excellent and have always gotten great support from them. My only concern now is with pricing. Since I started with Foliolink, competitors have cropped up, like Squarespace, which, even though I haven't researched this thoroughly, seems to be half the price of Foliolink. I should look into this, but I just totally revamped my Foliolink site, so I'll stay with them for the time being. Artists I know have recommended Squarespace, so I will check them out eventually.
I have been very happy with Foliolink. They are very easy to work with and uploading images couldn’t be easier. I don’t have experience with any other website provider so I am very limited in my knowledge.
I would recommend Foliolink - the platform is truly easy to use - coming from someone who is not tech savvy. Moreover their tech support and office is wonderful - you can always reach a knowledgeable person that will walk you through problems and take the time to point out new features. Another great feature is the ability to change the parameters of set portfolio styles - for someone more creative who feels their platforms are too regimented they actually have vast options on their site to change every single element to make a website unique.
I highly recommend Foliolink. They have been superb to me, they are always willing to help by telephone, they have a design service for a reasonable fee if one wishes extra assistance.
I do recommend foliolink to my friends who need a website. I’ve been with them for about 7-8 years now. I am a complete idiot with computers so I find it very user friendly. Also, anytime I have questions I can just call customer service and they help me out.
Template based with a variety of styles and features available. Options in 3 tier price ranges and also student price. I am learning html to eventually build my own website, but until accomplished, this has been the best I have found for: building a website using templates, features, styles, getting help from the Foliolink team, cost, and making annual payments.
in general I'm happy with Foliolink. It's pretty straightforward and easy to use/set up. The only issue I have with it is that it's pretty pricey and I recently discovered that there might be other platforms that offer similar product for a fraction of the cost (i.e. GoDaddy seems to be at least half the price). Therefore, I would recommend that you do some research on other platforms before you invest in a Foliolink page/account.
I think foliolink was ahead of its time when I began using it, about 10 years ago. Unfortunately, I now think it is behind the times in regard to platforms that are both easy to use as well as easy to navigate as a viewer. I still have it but I’m thinking of changing to something that seems more fluid with visual scrolling movement, and video integration ease. I’m not pursuing changing at the moment because it could take a lot of time and investigation, etc. I just don’t have the time.
I have used Foliolink since 2009. I enjoy the ease of use and the many templates, more than I have been able look through completely. They are flexible as to color, how things read in and how many and what pages you have. I am not a novice with computers (I had a computer training company for 16 years, now an artist) but I don't enjoy the website side as it requires so much coding and detail work. Foliolink is so easy to use!!! I just upload my artwork into pages I categorize by my desire, it is simple and they are great at phone support at no charge. They often have free indepth analysis of our websites to help us make better choices. The initial set up price is reasonable and the ongoing annual price is reasonable as well. I have recommended it and will continue to do so.
I’ve been using foliolink for some years. It has been my only website. I’ve found it to be very easy to use and the customer service and response has been excellent. I’ve had help with their tech people for optimizing my site, formatting images, streamline my site etc. it is more expensive than free websites, but I like how easy it is to use and how they respond to questions. I also like how easy it is to change the layout and styles. I would highly recommend it.
I used folionlink, because their site examples looked clean, sleek and simple. I needed site fast and I did not have any website building knowledge. Plus at foliolink they specifically work with artists. And it was affordable.Yes, overall I would recommend if their templates is what you want. Things you see on my site are standard, nothing customised. They customise for extra fee, I never used it. They get back to you right away always, you pay your fee once a year and you are done. I think it all depends on what site you want. I am pretty happy with foliolink for right now, but again, I just wanted to keep it simple. On one of the recent forum I came across people were mentioning SquareSpace for websites
I have been using Foliolink for my website for years. It was recommended to me by another artist. As I don't have programming skills to design my own I have found that it works for me. It is easy to manipulate, adding info and images. They have a few designs which you can choose from. some more appropriate for the artist and others for the commercial photographer.
I've been using Foliolink for over 12 years and have been really happy with it as a platform. Because it's a template based website there are some little things that I'd probably like to tweak with the templates I've used but usually I get 95% of what I need from them. It's very intuitive and easy to manage.
The big plus over the years has been the customer service and support, as well as the choice and design of templates. They allow for pretty much everything I need in them.
I've been a little frustrated with it's e-commerce design. The functionality is fine but the layout/design in my preferred template (San Francisco) is too 'subtle', and sometimes hard for my customers to see clearly, resulting in emails to me about how they are unable to purchase directly from my website.
I use my Foliolink site primarily for my artist business - to showcase my paintings, promote workshops etc. And I find it's perfect for that. Recently I've been growing my print range and sell through Etsy but I've been looking at moving everything over to a Shopify site as it seems to be able to provide everything I need for my Artist business as well as offering a really smooth e-commerce experience.
I’ve used Foliolink for my website for a number of years now. I’ve had no problems with using Foliolink however, I am currently on the fence about trying Faso this year and I am doing a free month trial with them now. The reasons are that I am wanting to drive more visitors to my website and Foliolink doesn’t have some of the bells and whistles that Faso does. Overall, I’ve had no complaints and actually, this is a tough decision for many reasons.
I like the way my site looks in that all the images fit nicely on the pages. I’m not so sure I like the way they appear on my trial with Faso and is one of my big questions for them. What I do want is the ability to write a blog, a newsletter, and have a mail option and Faso has all that and more… they have great analytics and they have built in abilities to be in online shows which drives people to the sites for the artist. It’s also a platform that was built by artists for artists, so that makes a big difference as well. There is also a sales component which I like - the ability to sell work directly from the website to the buyer. However, their templates are limited unlike Foliolink. And I asked Faso about transferring my domain name from Foliolink to them and was told it could take up to 2 weeks. I find that rather strange, so it’s another hesitation. However, overall, I think for me, a painter, I’d like more available than what Foliolink offers. I believe Foliolink leans more toward photographers, and was built for that originally.
I have another couple of weeks before I have to decide… I’m still not sure. Pricing is comparable and so I am leaning toward trying Faso for the fact that they offer more.
I would recommend Foliolink. Lots of attractive and functional templates, responsive tech support. Easy to use!
I’ve been very happy with Foliolink. The support is super and I’ve not found it too difficult.
I have use Foliolink for more than five years and I have been very happy with them.
Their templates are easy to use.
They have a great number of designs to choose from.
They are extremely responsive when contacted with questions./pjho
It is designed for artists/photographers
I have used Foliolink for several years. It is fairly effortless to use and install information and imagery. They have interesting formats, and help is available for a non-computer person.
I am very, very happy with it. Their customer service is A#1 as well. I would recommend it to anyone without hesitation.
I would definitely recommend it. Love their designs and have been with them for over a decade. They have excellent customer service and a user friendly platform.
I recommend it.
I would highly recommend them. They have been great to work with and have perfect designs especially for artists.
I switched to Squarespace because I liked their look and designs. I kept the Foliolink (downgraded to their basic package) and it's cheap enough to keep going for now.
I recommend Folio link its been great and for us its user friendly and they are very helpful also
Foliolink has served me well. It’s easy to use and looks good. I’m very happy with it. I have no desire to use another website
I haven’t taken advantage of a hat it offers honestly because I’m old school and terrified of computers. However the reason I liked it was because I rework my work and want to personally update my images which are constantly changing.
I would recommend it.
Excellent. Very happy.
yep all good with support to back it up. Would recommend.
I would recommend it.
I’ve been very pleased with it. They have lots of formats and keep offering new ones and new technology.
I can recommend Folielink - the system is easy to use and if have problems - they answer me straight away…
I highly recommend. I have been using FolioLink for 11+ years now for my art and gallery.
Indeed, I’m using it and I’m happy with the look and it’s easy to maintain.
Reasonable pricing too.
I would recommend it. I just need to do something about mine, I’m Lazy these days
I find the customer service at folio link outstanding.
Foliolink is amongst the first of its kind. It was recommended by a professional photographer and long time user.
The personnel had been very courteous and helpful. We had fun. Even though I never used the site very much, we enjoyed a personal and warm relation.
At the time the site was up to par with its competition. # years ago.
I recomend it. There customer service is great! IF you want a site you do not have to read blogs to figure out this is the one. You can call someone on the phone and they will help you.
I have been with them for many years and am very happy. Great customer service. Wonderfully easy to build and maintain my site.
Definitely a good choice for photos. Simple, minimalist, easy to work with. I like it very much.
I would recommend. I think there are a few features I would like to see
but they are continually upgrading and the support is great.
It is not difficult, once you get the hang of it to build and maintain a very professional website using what they have
I have been happy with Foliolink as a host. I do not do much with my website - have kept the same design for years - but their customer service has always been extremely helpful and very nice.
I use foliolink and would recommend it. Definitely not cheap but super user friendly and excellent customer service.
I would highly recommend it. It is a super easy to use platform (I severely underuse all of the features they offer.). They are great with customer service and are wonderful to work with.
I do use Foliolink for my website, and find it excellent. It's very user friendly.
I would recommend it, pretty easy to set up with not much of a learning curve.
I have been with Foliolink for years and their service is outstanding.
I like the site. I use it both for portfolio and as an archive site. Without too much difficulty, I’m able to do most of the site management. And I like the look.
I been with Foliolink for around 10 years. I guess that means I’m happy.
I do use Foliolink and it has worked well for me.
I am very happy with Foliolink I prefer the contemporary modern styles they have
I love my Foliolink site. Been on it for a few years.
I use foliolink. It’s been about 10 years, and I’m still quite happy. I’d have swapped templates and colors a few times and i’m due for a website renew probably with a new template.
I am going to let folio link expire and move to a more user friendly and affordable site
I would recommend it. It is easy to use and they are top notch if you have questions or issues with your site.
I would recommend Foliolink.
I am absolutely not happy with them.
I've been using Foliolink for a couple years and would highly recommend to other galleries. It's very easy to use and customer support is excellent. Many template/format options to showcase artwork, photography, etc.
I would. It has a lot of different website templates to use. Quite elegant. I am very satisfied.
I do use FolioLink and would recommend them to any artist. They are very good - great website templates and great customer service.
I would recommend Foliolink
I love them!!!!!!
I love it. reasonable prices, easy use and changes, lots of different choices, incredible customer service. All in them and I search for while. Highly recommended
I've been using Foliolink for my website for years, and I like them. Very easy templates to use, plenty of variety for me, and the cost is reasonable.
I really like FolioLink. Their websites are very intuitive and their customer service is great!
I’ve been with them a number of years. Service is good. Easy to work with. A little overpriced in my opinion.
I would recommend it. Easy access and very easy to update. Endless layouts to choose from and easy migration from one to the other. A bit expensive but worth it.
fyi, it looks really cool. I find it is a bit expensive
I'm satisfied with FolioLink and would recommend it to anyone willing to post their craft on a site.
I rarely get messages but referring people to my site is fine with me.
It does the job.
I would recommend the foliolink web site i am pleased with it
I am using Foliolink I have used it for over 10 years.
I would recommend it only after trying some of the other sites like Squarespace to compare. It is good, but has some quirks and isn’t great for groups vs. individuals is now more expensive than other builders. Customer service is pretty good.
I would recommend Foliolink.
A good site for photographers, with several strong and effective templates, with excellent service behind it.
I highly recommend folio link. I’ve been with them since the beginning of my business and have never been disappointed.
it’s not that good, very limited info input.but it works with phones and pads. square space might be better
It works well for me and the customer service is very good which is one reason I picked them and got the package that includes tech help with a phonecall.
I've been with Foliolink for several years - probably ten or so - and have been mostly pleased with their product, though I feel it's expensive compared to Squarespace, who I'm considering switching to later this year before my annual re-up at Foliolink.
It's easy to use and maintain, and over the years they've worked out back-office issues with image sizing and moving images from one portfolio to another. Foliolionk is a good product, but I'm a real low maintenance user and use the site primarily as an online portfolio, so my review should be considered on that basis.
I use FolioLink to display my portfolio. I would recommend FolioLink for artists/photographers. The site has a lot of design options and is easy to use.
I would highly recommend. Excellent customer service.
I would recommend it. It's worked well for me as a portfolio site. That's all I use it for. No commerce. I've had no problems and have used it for over ten years.
Easy to use.
I would recommend it. It is fairly easy to input your stuff" and extremely easy to change the look of you site.
I would highly recommend FolioLink!!
I would recommend them. I ‘ve been using them for about 6 yrs. They are very good with customer service-a big selling point for me these days.
I don’t recommend it at all, not user friendly and nowadays there’s a lot of website does the same things with fracture of the price they charging
I do like my folio link site and have been using it for years. every year or so ill choose a different design to freshen up the look. many to choose from. the interface is pretty easy to use and quick to make changes or add pages.
We are very pleased Foliolink. No issues and an easy group to deal with.
I’ve been with them for many years. The people there are very helpful with questions and making changes. I need to have an e-commerce site and will see if they can do it for me.
