My partner sews as a hobby. She sells foldaway shopping bags through Etsy, has a sewing blog, Instagram and Facebook. But she wanted a portfolio site focused solely on what she sells. For this, I’ve used Carrd.
Responsive site templates
Carrd is a website builder that focuses on single page sites. It gives you a selection of responsive templates. Some are aimed at portfolio sites. It’s very easy to quickly produce and publish a site. A few words, upload your images, and hook up your social media icons. The template guides you throughout. Carrd handles the hosting, and it’s SSL.
If you are happy with a carrd.co address, Carrd is free. However, pay just a little and you can use your own domain. Paying also gives you access to more features and more templates. Currently, plans start at 19 dollars a year!
One click and it’s clear
You don’t have long to communicate what a site is about. People bounce quickly. Blogging targets people who share your interest. Buyers just want to see the goods. Portfolio sites do this, and Carrd is a great way to get one. If you are a crafter or artist and want a portfolio site like missjaysewingcorner.co.uk, have a look at Carrd. It’s one of my favourite no-code tools.
