    Very moot point - I have my own opinions and will post as and when (rather than drone); overall however, would like to ask your guys' opinions on this matter.

    There are varying portfolios to suit different occasions, this is true - however, as a baseline standard writers portfolio, what do you have in yours? - content editors, what do you expect to see in yours? and to those who use Copywriters/Content Writers, what do you look for in a portfolio?

Also, tip, I hate when people send me samples of 200-400 words. I want to see that you can write thorough articles about specific topics.

    I hope this was to any help, it comes from someone who have hired more than 10 content writers for different purposes. :)

    I guess this is the thing - proving that you can do what you say you can do.
