How To Build A Kickass Portfolio (And Get The Most Out Of It)

In this episode of The Six Figure Home Studio Podcast, Chris and Brian discuss the importance of your portfolio and how you can build yours to showcase your best work.

Without a portfolio, a studio will have no way to show what they are capable of and anyone browsing the studio’s website will likely move on to the next option. A weak portfolio is just as bad. Make sure you absorb the content in this episode!


In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why you need a portfolio in 2019
  • What the “eyebrow test” will show for your portfolio
  • How knowing your strengths and creating work around those strengths can launch your career
  • Why you need to update your portfolio frequently
  • Why what works for one person might not work for everyone
  • How you can build relationships with other studios by asking for tracks to practice on
  • Why you need to build your portfolio step by step
  • Why you must build relationships that aren’t one-sided and set boundaries in those relationships
  • What to avoid when you’re just starting to build your portfolio
