What Others Are Saying About Writer's Residence

It took me forever to find an online writing portfolio site that was easy to do. You guys have something really great there, and I can't wait to work more with it.

What new freelancers have been searching for all their lives and now here it is, all tied up in one stress-free neat package.
—Carole Woddis, Freelance Writer
Before signing on with Writer's Residence, I checked out lots of other websites that could help me build a website, but I couldn't find one that would allow me to post several multiple-page, high-quality PDFs of my writing samples. I found nice-looking templates to use, but they seemed more geared to photographers and small business owners who weren't looking to post more than a photograph, a menu, or a price list. So I was thrilled when I found Writer's Residence, which not only enabled me to upload long full-color brochures and link to other sites to show my work, but creating the site was so intuitive and effortless that I actually had fun doing it (something I never expected, being a total non-techie). And since I didn't need to go back and forth with a web designer to make edits, I tweaked my copy to my heart's content and finished my entire basic site in one weekend. I can finally say, after several years of failed attempts, that I now have a fantastic-looking website that I'm extremely proud of.
Tim and Monica also helped make the whole experience a pleasure from the beginning with their friendliness and immediate response to the very few questions that I had.

Setting up a website was the best marketing move I ever made. It has brought in a host of interesting enquiries and leading to a dozen number one bestsellers and trips to a variety of places from Bermuda to Lahore. Within a year of starting it was virtually my only marketing tool, permanently out there in the ether waiting to be discovered and followed up by potential clients. I firmly believe that every writer should have one but I understand they can be expensive and time consuming, and seem a little daunting to a newcomer. What Writer's Residence has done is create an easy to understand and easy to afford package which removes every excuse for avoiding taking the plunge. A brilliant concept, beautifully presented.
—Andrew Crofts, author of The Freelance Writer's Handbook
