Gather Your Information

Before you higher someone to design your portfolio site, decide what you want to put on it. Gather photos of your past projects, if you don't have any go take some. Write down detailed descriptions of each project you plan to feature, include materials used or special techniques. Write a short bio or "about us" for your company. It's a good idea to search the web for sites that offer similar services and write down what you like or don't like about those sites.

You should go to the designer with all of your information gathered together along with an idea of what you like or don't like about the sites you've seen. This way you are more likely to end up with the site you want, and not the site that the designer wants to make you. After all, it is your portfolio site and what people see there will determine what they think of your business.
