A few points from the video:
-Freelance prospects need to feel they can trust you to do the job.
-You are going to need some proof – either with some samples or case studies.
–A portfolio of samples …or case studies will enable you to prove your credibility.
–Don’t wait for freelance projects before creating a portfolio.
-If you don’t have a portfolio of freelance samples – create your own!
-There a number of ways to create and display your portfolio – without having to build a website.
-Consultants will need case studies instead of “samples.”
