NEW: Help people discover Pressfolios, earn extra storage space.

image

Need more storage space for your Pressfolio? You’re in luck. We’ve just released a simple new feature that earns you extra space just for helping people discover Pressfolios.

Here’s how it works:

  • Right this very moment, sitting atop your account dashboard is a brand new custom invite link.
  • Copy your invite link and share it with friends, colleagues and acquaintances via email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn - you name it.
  • Every time someone clicks your invite link and signs up for a free Pressfolio, you both get +5 stories worth of extra space added to your Pressfolios.

The best part: There’s no limit to the number of stories you can earn. If 100 people discover Pressfolios thanks to your special invite link, that’s +500 stories added to your account in no time flat.

"But I thought you already did that.. right?"

Well.. Yes, and no. It’s true we’ve always had a referral system to help you to earn bonus space by inviting friends. In the old system, however, you could only send invites by email. 

With the new system, we give you direct access to your user-specific invite code/link so that you can share it with your contacts wherever, whenever and however you see best fit.

FAQ: I already have portfolios on other sites (and they’re free). Why should I use Pressfolios?

Pressfolios is the easiest way for journalists and writers to backup their published stories and build a better online portfolio. Designed for today’s digital journalist, Pressfolios functions as a personal repository, a cloud backup service and a website builder all wrapped into one.

While there are many tools out there for building websites and online portfolios, Pressfolios is winning over the journalism community because our platform is designed to meet the specific needs of those plying the journalistic trade.

Story Backup

image

Every time you add a story to Pressfolios, we automatically create a full backup for you and keep it safely stored on our servers in case any of your links ever expire.

Do any other website builders like WordPress or Wix, provide backups for every story? Nope. How about other journalism-specific services like MuckRack or Contently? Negative.

Intelligent Archive

image

Pressfolios doesn’t just help you build a nice website to showcase your professional identity and published work, it gives you an intelligent personal repository for collecting all of your articles into one central location so you can keep track of those stories over time.

Need to find the name of a source from a story you wrote two years ago? If it’s in your Pressfolio, no problem: Just login and search any terms you can remember from the story and we’ll pull it up for you in no time flat.
