Give Sellers More Control Over Live Portfolio


#1

Half my clients can’t figure out what I’m talking about when I ask them to submit their order for the live portfolio and it’s not real intuitive so most orders don’t end up in the portfolio. I want to be able to add and delete items from the portfolio - or a request button to send to the buyer, something that makes it very clear and very easy for them to agree to add the work to the portfolio. Right now all my best work is not showing up as samples which is frustrating!

Your best work may not being showing up because your buyers click the option to not have it shown in your portfolio. I never ask buyers for permission, I just deliver their zipped files first, then deliver a photo that says “Here’s a screenshot :-)”. Usually if a buyer doesn’t want it added, they tell me as soon as they order, so when that’s the case, I just deliver their zipped files with no other delivery that contains a media file, so nothing will show up in my live portfolio for that particular client. Most buyers who don’t want something added to the live portfolio, are either very private people or trying to resell your work or services and don’t want a trackable source or digital footprint.

So when you upload the second file it automatically goes into your portfolio?

Reply to @deannabalestra: Yes, unless the buyer clicks the link to not have it shown. Other than that, media files show up when you post it directly instead of in a zipped file or on a document.

Reply to @vedmak: I can’t agree with this enough! SOME control over what gets showcased in the portfolio would be so helpful! I’ve got sketches that show up because they were delivered first, but the final artwork is nowhere to be seen! Wish I knew what was going to show up on a positive review. Seems like its always a guessing game…

If the buyer doesn’t leave a feedback, the image is not showing as well. I mention this because no one else mentioned it and a newbie can get misled.

I’ve noticed that some sellers can add their portfolio work to the slider under their main video. Do you have to be a top seller to do this?? A lot of my favorite work has been to European buyers and they rarely allow to be on live portfolio.
