Setting Up Your Portfolio

Your portfolio is your virtual business card on Contently. It's where you demonstrate your expertise and skills to potential clients. To get started, make sure your portfolio meets the following requirements:

  • A Comprehensive Bio: Your bio should provide an insightful overview of your areas of expertise. This is your chance to introduce yourself and let clients know what you bring to the table.
  • Projects and Clients: Include a minimum of 10 different projects from at least 3 different clients. This variety showcases your experience and versatility as a contributor.
  • Clips: Add topics and skills to at least 3 clips in your portfolio. This helps clients find you when they search for specific content or expertise.
  • Availability for Work: Make sure to mark yourself as "Available for Work" in your portfolio settings.

Once your portfolio meets these requirements, our talent team will initiate the review process. For detailed guidance on setting up your portfolio, refer to our guide on how to set up your portfolio.

Note: The duration of the review process may vary, lasting anywhere from a few weeks to several months, depending on our client's needs and preferences at the time.

Registration to Staffing

Every qualified portfolio undergoes an initial approval process to ensure your skills align with our clients' requirements. The talent team will carefully review your portfolio to determine if you meet our criteria.

If your portfolio is approved, you will receive an email notification. This email will include a link to a brief tutorial on navigating the Contently platform. Completing this tutorial is important, as it will log your training in our system, allowing our algorithm to start surfacing your portfolio to potential clients.

You will receive another email notification when a client expresses interest in working with you. This email will contain essential information about the client and the type of content they wish to create. To join the client's team, click the "Get Started" button in the email.
