PortfolioBox 202 Reviews From Real-Life PortfolioBox Users

  • Honestly, I wouldn’t recommend it. It has a lot of issues and glitches and it’s tricky to get what you want out of it. Stuff won’t align properly, text randomly appears where you don’t want it, YouTube videos embed terribly. It’s easy for beginners who want simple sites though. But for otherwise just stick with Artstation.

  • I would recommend portfolio box because it has a easy to use interface. All the the templates are pretty straightforward and can be manipulated to your own personal taste.

  • I really recommend it. It is easy to set up/ design, it looks sleek and uncomplicated. I didn't want something too fancy but sturdy and fresh and it does the job. It is great for displaying /selling paintings because images shown as a products are not automatically cropped (unlike some other similar websites). It has ecommerce built in so that's handy too. Lots of good templates to make quick easy page for map / forms / contact / etc...

    The only thing that is not good for me is that products (paintings) can't be entered as 'unique items' so when it sells, it doesn't show as sold out but is still for sale so potentially can be bought twice if you're not quick enough to manually remove it from the shop. But I think they are working on it. Apart from that I think it's great.

  • I chosed PortfolioBox because I wanted something easy and fast to do my portfolio. Yes Wordpress or Squarespace are very popular and they are both great but I was losing so much time building my website on these platform. Wordpress, squarespace etc are great if you have time because you can really push the customization.

    PortfolioBox is waaayyy more lighter and easy to use, and there is enough customization to make something unique and personal.

    Also the team is very easy to reach if you have question, feedback etc.

    Yes, they probably missing one or two minors things, but for now, I'm very happy with my experience.

  • I use it and I am delighted. as soon as we have a problem, the staff is reactive and makes every effort to solve it ... The interface is really well done and there is something new regularly!

    Flag
  • I totally recommend Portfoliobox. It has all the features I need for a concept art portfolio, is easy to use and works fine.

    I usually receive emails from the Portfoliobox team with updates and new features. So they are very active improving their product.

  • I would just like to say that it is such an easy way to make a professional fun looking website containing all the information I've ever needed, It would be nice to be able to have a slight bit more customisation within the styles and layouts, but the tools given allow you to create a unique website for any need you can think of. The customer services is also amazing being extremely interactive and really easy to talk to, makes the site much more enjoyable and usable!

    Flag
  • I'd recommend PortfolioBox if you are interested in making a simple portfolio. It was cheaper than other options when I bought it. The customization is simple, but intuitive.

    It has some cons. For example, it doesn't have much HTML customization, nor you can set a Newsletter section. Sometimes the gallery templates have limited options.

    Flag
  • I think it’s great. I worked in graphic design and website design for a while and all ways built my own. I decided to use a templated builder and tried Wix and Squarespace, but PortfolioBox stood out and does everything I need it to do. Customer service is fast and they’re ready to help. Totally recommend it.

    Flag
  • For me PortfolioBox is great!!! If you want to know more opinion you can see the section they have.

    It's very easy and intuitive, and if you have any doubt you just need to send then an email and they help you in any question.

    I really like the option they have and the layout.

    Flag
  • I like it because it’s easy. The bad thing is that they have limiten choice on templates.

    Flag
  • I’d recommend Portfoliobox. Its a very user friendly portfolio builder so ideal for people (such as myself) who are looking for something quite easy to use but with decent results. It also has a reasonable selection of templates to choose from and they seem to update features on a regular basis.

    Flag
  • I chose it because they had a good plan for students— at the time I changed from a custom built CMS to PortfolioBox.

    It's fine for the time being, but to be honest I miss a bit more customization. The styles look great and it is very easy to use and to change things, but it definitely lacks a couple of things like customizable mobile. But they are constantly adding new features. Also, their customer services is really quick, helpful and engaged, that was very surprising.

    Flag
  • I chose it for 2 major reasons: the simplicity of use and the price. It’s pretty intuitive, I can create a new gallery very quickly, there is a lot of templates but to be honest the are some limitations, for some details I’d like to have more choice, more freedom, but the final quality of my website is here. I never had bugs or any issues and the team reacts pretty quickly and efficiently to the few questions I had. So yes I would and already recommend it, perfect for young professionals who don’t want to spend much time and money on their website. It’s the 4th year I use it, before every annual payment I ask myself if I should change it but I don’t !

  • I would recommend it for small-medium projects/agencies. It's kinda of limited but simple to drive and manage, also is very cheap. Support team responds always within 24hs and (almost) always gives you a solution. Sometimes due to the system programming is not possible to do some changes to your site, but still ok.

    Flag
  • I would recommend it. It feels a little bit janky as it’s only a few years old, but I actually find that quite endearing. I always contact them when a glitch comes up and they get back to me quickly and work with me on the problem. I find that professions like my website a lot which is really what matters at the end of the day!

    Flag
  • I would recommend it. It is easy to use and it is quite fast to add or change pages. I also like the fact that it looks good on phones and tablet as well. I wanted to make a website that was clean easy and to navigate. My main audience are photo editors, they don't usually spend much time on a website. They just browse quickly to get an idea of my work. So I wanted to present only few stories but well displayed.

  • I’m truly satisfied with PortfolioBox, although there are some glitches in the mobile interface. Thou I would recommended it. It’s really easy to use it and it allows your creativity expand the possibilities depending on your needs.

    Flag
  • I'd recommend it. Its relatively cheap & easy-to-use, functionality is a bit limited in some areas but for someone who knows nothing about developing a website (like me) it works very well for what we need it for & is DIY-friendly.

    Flag
  • I actually didn’t have any experience with web pages and I created that page myself so i would say I recommend it yes.

    It’s easy to use , has a lot of options and it had bring me to the first page on Google and brought me a lot of clients.

    Flag
  • I started with it mainly because it was easy to use and also because it proposes a flexible and sober interface. It's very helpful to have a personal support if needed and to be able (with some practice) to change the look of your website directly from the pages script.

    From a network point of view, it happened that I have been spotlighted on Portfoliobox's mainpage as portfolio of the month", which gave me a nice visibility afterwards, also through PorfolioBox's Instagram and Facebook profiles.

    I would say that it's a bit more expensive than other platforms, but it gives useful service and assistance in return.

  • I would absolutely recommend portfoliobox! I can tell you I know only the basics of technology and I have had no issues using the site. It looks professional and it's super easy to customize! I've tried to convince a lot of people to use it... And I get tons of compliments on my site from various photographers.

    Flag
  • I recommend it but it is not for everyone. It's a good resource for artists who don't want to spend a lot of time coding and building a website or spend a lot of money on a high-end pro system. I appreciate the built-in galleries that it offers. There are two versions -- a free one and a paid one -- and I don't recommend the free version because it's very limited. I started out with the free version but decided to upgrade to the paid version, which is about equivalent to paying for hosting. I'm glad I did. Overall Portfoliobox is not spectacular but it's pretty simple to use, functional for my needs, and they had decent customer service the few times I needed to contact them.

    Flag
  • I like it. It’s really easy to use when you get into it, and that went pretty fast for me. I got it recommended myself from a photographer friend of mine. Maybe it’s even better for photographers but it works really fine for me too. A lot of people recommended Squarespace but after trying both I went for Portfoliobox. They are really quick with their support and always helped me out when it was something.

    I would recommend Portfoliobox, even if it has some minor weaknesses, as all platforms have, that you can live without. For example I have a slideshow on my starting page. I can’t have it on the mobile version, casue it didn’t support it back then, and I think it still doesn't, so I had to think of a workable plan that could work both on computer version and the mobile.

    Flag
  • I would absolutely recommend it. I was searching for an easy way to build a website that I can also update as easy as updating a facebook profile. Portfoliobox was the answer.

    Flag
  • I would recommend Portfoliobox without any hesitation. Easy to use, great design flexibility, intuitive interface. It has some minor quirks but they are working on them to remove them. Their support is good, and they have helped me to correct some annoying bugs, which are gone now, making PortfolioBox even better to work with

    Flag
  • Would totally recommend PortfolioBox! I tried a few similar and it's the best by far. Easy and intuitive to use. The 'collections' page feature is really useful for artists/projects.

    The customer support is good and they email regularly to offer help if needed.

    It is a good price too, compared to similar alternatives. The free version is great to get you started.

    Flag
  • I wouldnt recommend portfolio box. Ive left them. The website was sluggish and clients and other traffic would sometimes comment that the website was slow to load.

    I also had issues creating selection pages for clients to choose what pictures they wanted editing . Or proofs. And the e-commerce platform was unresponsive.

    Even though its a cheap template service it really only works as a basic portfolio.

    Flag
  • I like the service and quick tech support I have received from PortfolioBox. I would recommend it.

    Flag
  • Personally, I’ve been really happy with it during the past four years. I find it very easy to use and have been especially content with the help center whenever I needed anything. So yes, I can definitely recommend it!

  • I'm using PortfolioBox. I'm not sure if I'm the best guy to tell my experience. I started using it years ago, and it was so difficult. But they had in my opinion, one of the best templates and designs for photographers, designers, painters...

    Since then, they grew up a lot and now it's more intuitive to use, they incorporated more languages and more templates, video galleries... and the most important things, they have a really good help services attending your demands and including your ideas. Also you can monetize your site (I'm not interested on this).

    You can try their services for free with a .portfoliobox domain or upgrade to have your own domain. You have also a personal email.

    Honestly, for me it's one of the best options, design is really good, service is easy to use and they don't use Javascript like Wix.

  • I would recommend it to others.

    When I initially started using Portfoliobox (around mid 2017) I was getting frustrated with the back-end and kept wondering why I didn’t just stick with Squarespace (because I have another website with Squarespace). However, over time Portfoliobox has improved its interface and keeps introducing updates which have made the experience a lot better.

    If I were to break down the reasons why I would recommend Portfoliobox to other people, I will categorize them into four:

    1. Affordable 2. Responsive customer care 3. Beautiful layout options 4. A additional platform called Findcreatives.com which Portfoliobox uses to connect its users with clients for free

    Limitations with Portfoliobox will include:

    1. Not so many templates 2. Not enough domain suffixes 3. Limitation on the size of picture. What I mean by this is that when uploading some pictures using certain options on the platform, you are not allowed to upload a picture that is higher than 10MB in size. So I have had to in some instances compress the size of my photos.

    But I see Portfoliobox getting better in their areas of weakness and for that reason it’s worth checking them out.

  • I really like PortfolioBox and I think I will recommend it for friends and other people. In common everything is cool, but there is only one thing that I am upset with— fonts. Variations of the fonts are really poor and they are all standard. No options to install your own fonts, or to choose the design fonts.

    As for me, I think that this is the real problem especially for advance users and designers which are directly related to it.

    Flag
  • I'm happy with Portfoliobox:

    1. The interface is quite simple to use 2. The have a great customer service 3. They are constantly improving tools and functions

    However I want to change this year as I don't have the feeling that it allows me design wise to do all the things that I want to do.

  • I would recommend PortfolioBox. Did not use the full potential yet, but it's easy to use and fast to learn.

  • it’s pretty good. You just have to set it up and that might be a little time consuming to get everything just right, but it’s a great and cheap option for portfolios

  • I would say for artists the site is pretty good. Its not as easy to use then other sites I have used but I like the layout it offers. Generally they are good at responding when you have any issues.

  • I definitely recommend portfolio box. What made me choose portfolio box was the monthly price and customer service but most importantly it seemed like the only website builder/host that understood artists.

  • I've been using portfoliobox for years and I absolutely love it for it's simple navigation, classy modern templates. It's impossible to make ugly portfolio there and it's why I chose it. And it's really quick to work with! It can be quite limited for some users maybe, but for an artist like me, they have almost everything and it's absolutely perfect. All the typical layouts and templates are there. Site works automatically on mobile really well too. They also have amazing customer support that will help you with any issues. Im using it to sell original art and store works well, they don't take comission on sales. Also it's extremely affordable, I think I'm paying only 6-7 euro a month for premium!

  • portfoliobox is really suiting me but the thing is that I had one specific need :

    I was (4 years ago) at first looking for a platform that could display multiple tabs that all have the mosaic option (which is something tumblr for example couldn't do) and a clean style.

    So I've choosed portfoliobox although I thought it was a bit pricy (60 - 65€ something a year). I've found it very intuitive to use, fast & simple, with a clear interface & lots of options to custom your website.

    Flag
  • I just used Portfoliobox and never another platform. So I can’t compare it in an objective way. From my point of view, it’s good, user friendly. The platform changed a couple of years ago. Before, it was way more complicated. I don’t use the e-commerce aspect of it.

    Flag
  • I would recommend it.

    Flag
  • I recommend it. I think it allows the most per-page customization, out of all platforms for portfolio sites.

    They have some bugs here and there, but it's bearable. I also do some of my own customization via CSS, for things they do not allow to customize over their interfce.

    After 2-3 yers of using it, I decided to reevaluate and consider other platforms, but PB turned out to still be the best for my needs, so I'm sticking around.

    Flag
  • i recommend it, I use it basically but I find it esthetic and well manage. It’s easy to practice too.

    Flag
  • I’m quite satisfied. They listened carefully to my wishes building it and even if they couldn’t accomplish all, they found alternatives which were ok. The range of opportunities is not unlimited but ok for my needs. Its even fairly logical and easy to update. The downside of it all is the fact that the website can only be used on their platform, ie. if they close down the website is lost, I can’t just move it to another server.

    Flag
  • I absolutely love it! And I already have spread the words;) so yes I would recommend it. One of the best company I’ve used in a while.

    Flag
  • I have been with portfoliobox for several years and for my needs it is perfect. I use it as a simple portfolio site and I do not use any of the more complex features like the online store or analitics implementation, etc., so I cannot speak about those, but I am aware they are there. So it has a ton of features. Also I have noticed (they inform very unobtursively, with few emails, but well timed) they keep updating and adding options and features periodically. The service has really come a long way since I first started using it, but the price has not changes a lot.

    That being said, I have no idea how much other similar services cost or what they offer. For me portfoliobox has been providing an affordable hassle free service with regular updates and upgrades. I have never had any reason to look for another provider.

  • I'm using Portfoliobox for few years now.

    I have to say that the team is great. Service is even better.

    Very often they work late in the evening or on weekends. That makes a very responsible and reliable service.

    The team is very fast with replies and with the assistance of fixing problems on the website.

    Overall I'm very happy with what they offer. I think price performance is also good.

    They have various designs and many options to combine everything. So a user can build a website and his own design.

    You also have many features like WEBstore, or multisite, section pages etc.

    And advanced options for custom CSS programming. For extra personalization of portfolio...

    I'm a happy user for sure.

  • can recommend them. They built it for me, I think it was around 300 dollars, and then a yearly fee of appx 80 bucks. I mainly choose PB due to the fact that they focus on creative people and have lots of cool options for showing your portfolios.

  • I'm using PortfolioBox and love it!

    We have been in the a design business since 72 and built a lot of sites for our customers. I have tried them all but mostly used joomla as late.

    I got tired of all the malware and virus that seemed to increase towards the end.

    My wife and I have gone into fine art now. So I was looking for something like a art portfolio site.

    I tried wix, square, weebly, and shopify all the rest.

    I needed a site for our art business and was very happy to find PortfolioBox. It's intuitive, clean, fast, and comes with a shopping cart and pretty much unlimited all for one very cheep price.

    The only downside is no mail, but I found zoho had a free mail accounts that I could use my domain name with. Both have been great.

    I have been with them for about 2 years now.

    Flag
  • I actually would not reccomend Portfoliobox, as it is very limited in terms of styling options and back-end editing. I've had some trouble achieving the exact look and feel I wanted for my website. In fact Im planning to change to another builder at some point.

    As for other portfolio builder options, WordPress is a very good platform for people with development knowledge. Wix is nice for users who are stronger on the artistic side. Behance is optimal for people who prefer to just upload their work to display online.

    Flag
  • I recommend it, it's very editable but user friendly as well.

    I'm happy with it :)

  • I would absolutely recommend portfoliobox. I've been with them for about 3 years and have no intention of going anywhere else. Great service, very good value for money, and the site looks great. The tools are a bit of a learning curve but there are loads of online help and they reply very quickly if you contact them with a query. Highly recommended.

    Flag
  • I have been happy with it. But I can’t really compare because I only use this platform for four years now. I think it is easy to use. But I would say that maybe there is not much options as others. But that it only for what I heard. I am really happy with it.

    Flag
  • I haven't used any other portfolio sites, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. Regardless, I would recommend it to someone else. I found it very easy to use and to modify. My previous website was designed and updated by a friend. I changed it so that I had more autonomy.

    Flag
  • I would definitely recommend it, it's easy to use and displays my artwork full screen and nice and sharp, I used to use wix but that was awful for displaying my artwork as it did that whole 'pixelating' thing that Facebook does. So yes, definitely recommend.

    Flag
  • I would recommend it, since it is easy to handle for an illiterate in computers. Also the help desk works well. Every time I needed help, they gave me a solution - not in real time though.

    You have to adjust to what is offered - templates, links etc, but if you don't have the knowledge, or the money to pay someone else, this is inevitable I'm afraid.

    In any case I don't have experience with other hosting sites.

    Flag
  • I highly recommend it for what I need.

    It's simple to use and still lay out work in an organized way. Some functions are limited in how things can be presented but overall I found it to be the simplest to use for its price.

    Flag
  • i am recommending it to any of my friends who are looking for sites like this. Its easy as building a facebook page. The only downside of it is that i dont have the freedom with ''video'' content as i have with Photography. They have tons of options if you want to add and display photos but none for videos. i ended up having to open a page and embed my vimeo work on a single page. so maybe not so good for video work but defenitly awesome for everything else :)

    Flag
  • I actually like it a lot, compared to Wordpress which I used before this is so much more intuitive and simple to work with.

It's not quite as customizable as I would like, but the layout options it does have are great for displaying your work in a clean, simple way. It's also very affordable and you get a custom domain name included, so I think it's worth not being able to customize every little thing.

  • I׳ve being using PortfolioBox for over 3 years. I think it is comfortable to use and the online support works fast and is very effective. There are languages that PortfolioBox doesn׳t support but if you are using English only you׳ll be fine. I think that for a portfolio website it is great but it is far from being the only option (Wix). I haven׳t tried promoting it via Google so i can׳t say if it׳s SEO friendly.

  • I would recommend it. The website is very user friendly and customer service department replies to emails quickly. They include a free domain name in with the price of the portfolio, which is also nice. portfoliobox.net is always making improvements and upgrades to their services, like integrated shopping carts for those who sell work or merchandise. I don't use even a 1/3 of what the site offers.

  • I would recommend them. I picked them because they have minimalistic options, I like a very clean look when it comes to my portfolio. It is easy to use and they have always been helpful anytime I have any issues. They also reach out every time they are about to do an update, they like to know anything I would like to add or any issues that need to be fixed.

  • I would recommend it to users who would like to build a portfolio website. It's easy and has a lot of stuff to work on. Mine is very minimal because I built it like that. But the user can have e-commerce, blog and many more. And I also think the price for a pro site is very good.

  • i would recommend it ! I like the fact that this is easy to use.

    Flag
  • Yes, effectively for our business it is the most cost effective solution we have found considering we do not have the budget of agencies in larger centrals for anything more fancy. The main goal was to find a way to upload as may images for each profile possible without sharing images with a 3 party. We've also had people asking for the hard copy of the images of the models which helps to assess how easily the image can be copied from the website unless a screen shot is done.

  • I would recommend it, but it’s pretty basic, so if you’re looking to do something fast go for it.

  • I do use portfoliobox and I am quite satisfied with it. Although a few features and technical matters could be better and more sophisticated, the platform is recommendable for its simple functionality and low annual fee.

  • I’m very pleased with it. It took me an afternoon to set it up and I really like the user interface which was very easy to learn. I used to have a WordPress website. But it was very complicated to update it. But with Portfolibox it only takes a couple of minutes to add a new image to my portfolio!

  • I totally would ! :-)

  • I find it very user friendly and the support team are really on the ball. I have been very happy with it and it is a great alternative for those not wanting to spend a great deal of money on website creation.

    The only gripe I have with it is that its not fantastic when it comes to using it on a mobile platform.

    Flag
  • Portfoliobox is cheaper that a lot of other similar websites out there, it looks decent on mobile as well as a desktop, and has enough features built in to allow for a level of customization. So as long as you're not very picky, it's great. If you're looking to customize more things, unless you know how to write code, I wouldn't recommend it. I've liked it so far. The one thing I don't love is that it doesn't let you zoom in on mobile devices (which is helpful if you're in the visual-portfolio game...).

  • I am not sure if I would recommend you this web. Some things are hard to track with Google, what I would like to. But I am using it right now anyway because I am too lazy to create a new portfolio.

  • I would definitely recommend portfoliobox. It was the perfect product for when I knew zero about making a website work. It sets up easily, it’s beautiful, I’ve gotten a lot of business from it. That said, now that I understand websites more, it’s has very little SEO features. So I’m in the process now of creating a brand new site from scratch, using Wordpress, so that my site can grow with me and have every little tag and meta field completed correctly. So it just depends where someone is in the process. I tried Wordpress wen I first started and it’s so confusing I couldn’t get anything to work. Portfoliobox is cheap and the layouts are understandable and easy to create.

  • I can recommend it, obviously there are some feature that should be improved, but by now i wouldn't change platform.

  • I set it up quite a few years ago, and from memory they set up my domain name and hosting too. I've used portfolio box as well as square space and go daddy page builder and found portfolio box perfect for my personal page. Easy to set up and modify and the templates are good. All I need it for is images and video and to be able to work well on pc and mobile. I haven't had to commit a great deal of time to set-up and ongoing maintenance and the yearly rate is reasonable. I would recommend this site.

  • have only been a user of Portfolio Box for a short time, but I would recommend them to any artist seeking to build a clean and simple website to host their online portfolio. While I am not able to create visuals like I would if I were coding the page myself, the ease of portfolio box's system makes up for it.

    Flag
  • Of course I would recommend! and I do.

    Every time someone says 'Squarespace' I tell them they should really check out PortfolioBox!

  • I actually just shut down my portfoliobox site. I had the paid version and didn't feel like it was as user friendly as I would have liked. But I also have zero patience. The customer service team there is great there.

  • Honestly, it depends what you’re looking for. — I’ve been wanting to make a change to simplify to Etsy regarding my artwork. Also- I have another site under SquareSpace for my brand and it’s much more effective. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend portfoliobox, although it is cheaper... which is nice for the simple things.

    I've used their platform for a few years and have been satisfied with it.

    There are some things I am not happy with, but overall I am.

    Your email address does not seem to match what is on record for you via your website.

    It's just something one is concerned about when being cold contacted via email.

  • I can say that so far it has been good experience for what I need in terms of my photography and the pictures. It's easy, intuitive and very graphical. And quite many options to choose from the menu when we do the setup.

    Now so far my requirements have been quite basis, so some other users who may need more complex setups or customization could find it limited - but I cannot confirm on this aspect.

    Flag
  • My experience using portfoliobox has not been good. It is far from intuitive and has very limited options. It took many hours to get to the kludgy site presence you see there.

    Instead, I discovered Wix.com, and created a very decent site using their very intuitive option, and it's free! I absolutely recommend that instead.

    Flag
  • I think it's great! I don't know if I recommend the free version, since it's very limited, but I pay the monthly fee for their premium service and you have a lot of templates to choose from,as well as a lot of ways to customize it very easily. You can use custom fonts, logos, and easily add tags for your site for search engine purposes. Adding new pages and a store front is super easy as well, and even allows you to use PayPal and Stripe. Blog posts and uploading artwork and videos are also simple. They just added a function where you can even use a video as your entrance page, which I think is neat if you are doing a video editing or special effects based portfolio.

    I have been using it for a few years now and I honestly don't have any complaints, other than the max file size for images is a little on the low side (even if you are paying), but that really only matters if you want to upload very high resolution images. Most websites usually only allow uploads of a small file size, so it's really not a big deal. I've tried other portfolio websites, such as Carbonmade, and this one is by far the best. ArtStation also offers a free portfolio site, but I really don't like how they force you to use square thumbnails, making the artwork hard to see at a glance. PortfolioBox also allows you to change your domain name pretty much anytime very easily. Honestly I really don't know anything negative to say about it, haha. I guess in terms of originality, templates are a little limited, but for a portfolio I feel like the artwork should be talking more than the template you choose anyway, and what they do have is very sleek and classy looking. The site is also only nine dollars a month and the customer service for questions and help is fast and convenient. It takes a little bit of time getting used to the navigation of the back end and figuring out the different ways to create pages, but it's really no where near as complicated as building your own site.

  • I started out with it and it was perfect back then, since I didn’t know what I was doing. It’s very simple and it updates quite often so as a pro subscriber, I get new stuff available for me quite often. It does have a few issues- for example if I write something and forget to click on the site to update it, it doesn’t get saved and a lot of work can just disappear in a second. Happened to me quite often. Also been in touch with the customer care and they reply very quickly and thoroughly so that’s nice.

    I’ve done a website with squarespace for my friend after that, and if it was easy to just switch sites without uploading all my photos again, I would switch there. It has much more options to customise the site and you can for example make boxes that link to your cv file so people can download it - instead of having it written down on your site. Squarespace though took me quite a while to get a hand of it since it’s much more complex than portfoliobox but now that I have it down, I’d go there.

    So simply put : if you’re just starting out, portfoliobox is simple and easy to make good looking sites if you have a good eye for websites. If you don’t know what you’re doing, might turn out a bit boring. Squarespace I’d recommend of people who know they way around with website building and want to take their sites to the next level.

  • I'm using PortfolioBox and I'm quite happy with it but to be honest I've never used any other portfolio builder so it's hard for me to compare. But I used to manage websites built with wordpress and I think portfoliobox, even if more expensive, is easier to use. It gives me all the templates etc. Ok, their number is limited but for me it's better, I couldn't make any decision if they were more :'D Portfoliobox is very reliable. Once I've chosen the template and set everything website is just working" itself. I never had any technical problem or crisis with it. What I don't like is the lack of language versions - I would love to do english and polish version but it's not possible here. I've been using portfoliobox for few years, I don't remember, 4? 5? I would recommend it with notice it's quite expensive ;)

There's a lot more features that I didn't use which I'm sure will be helpful for people selling their products online, for example. If you have a clear idea of what you want, and have your texts & images ready, it wouldn't take more than one or two hours to get your website running and looking real professional.

I don't have the time to dive in and organize my own stuff. I work for a non-profit full-time. Whenever people want me to do freelance they ask for a portfolio. This was an easy way for me to throw some stuff together in a professional manner.
