  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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 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'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 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’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 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'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 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.

    Flag
  • 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 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 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 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 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

  • I would. It has a lot of different website templates to use. Quite elegant. I am very satisfied.

  • 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 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 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.
