25 marketing portfolio examples to help you create your own digital marketing portfolio
When I searched for "marketing portfolio examples," I found several articles listing agencies such as Hive Creative Group instead of individual marketing portfolios. To me, that doesn't make sense because looking at an agency's portfolio will not help individual marketers.
To that end, here's a list of marketing portfolio examples of marketers that should help you make your strong digital marketing portfolio.
Marketing portfolio example 1: Corinna Santa Ana (Cornejo)
Corinna is a content marketing professional and patient advocate with over 15 years of experience managing the people and projects needed to produce engaging, effective health and healthcare content. You can find Corinna's marketing portfolio here.
What I love about Corinna's marketing portfolio is that it begins with the "Featured Work" collection, thus inciting an immediate interest in potential clients.
As seen below, Corinna also has an excellent "About Me" section with links to contact her directly via email, LinkedIn, or her website.
Corinna's digital marketing portfolio on Authory is left-aligned (quite unique!), has 461 content items from 11 sources, and uses the "list" layout.
Marketing portfolio example 2: Asia Bradlee
Asia has successfully marketed brands, attracted audiences, and provided information to the public via her variety of experiences in writing, marketing, and digital communications. She's also a personal trainer and runs her own health and wellness website. You can find Asia's marketing portfolio here.
Asia has opted for a sleek, minimalist look for her portfolio website. She's also gone in for a brief "About Me" by just mentioning her content marketing and freelance writing.
That said, she has also included her social media contact details (LinkedIn) and her portfolio site. Asia has 261 content items from 3 sources on her portfolio and used the centered text content layout.
Marketing portfolio example 3: Jenn Chen
Jenn is a San Francisco-based freelance writer, photographer, journalist, and "coffee marketer" specializing in digital strategy, photography, and writing in the specialty coffee industry. You can find Jenn's marketing portfolio here.
I love that Jenn has divided her work samples into collections ("Journalism," "Essays," etc.) that speak to her vast experience. Also, Jenn's "About Me" is also quirky and interesting; as you can see below, she has also linked her Substack there.
Besides having 333 content items from 7 different projects, Jenn has linked her social media details (Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram) and her website URL. There's also a contact button for emailing her directly.
Marketing portfolio example 4: Jessica Eden
Jessica is a freelance writer, digital marketer, and social media strategist based in Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky, who currently works as the Marketing Communications Specialist at LINK nky. You can find Jessica's marketing portfolio here.
Jessica's portfolio has a pinned post, ensuring that potential clients will first see that before moving on. I also love that she has a separate page (collection) for her "best work."
Jessica is using the centered grid layout for her portfolio and has a whopping 803 content items from 5 sources.
Marketing portfolio example 5: Nick Moore
Nick is a freelance writer specializing in research-driven, opinionated content for developers, engineering managers, and CTOs. He has over five years of experience writing specialized content for technical folks across brands like Sourcegraph, Kolide, Animalz, and TechTarget. You can find Nick's marketing portfolio here.
Editing is among Nick's services; hence, it's great to see him use a collection to showcase his edited articles (as seen above). He also has collections for "Thought leadership" and "Software development and developers," which give potential clients an excellent idea of what he can do for them.
Marketing portfolio example 6: Sarah Cronk
Sarah is a Project/Process Manager and Marketer at Switchplane, a company that builds custom software for various clients across the UK. You can find Sarah's marketing portfolio here.
Sarah has segmented her work samples into various collections based on the publication that they're from. But, most importantly, the biggest takeaway from her portfolio is the "Case Studies" collection. This can be a handy tool for marketers — create case studies and showcase them in a separate collection.
Marketing portfolio example 7: Stacy Graves
Stacy is an experienced content specialist with a long history of working in the writing, editing, public speaking, and media relations industries. You can find Stacy's marketing portfolio here.
Stacy has a simple, to-the-point portfolio using a centered grid layout. Her bio is also concise. But what stands out is her use of collections, as seen above.

Several aspects make Marijana's portfolio great: she has several collections, including one for "Email marketing,” and her portfolio is minimalist and easy on the eyes. But, I'd like to highlight that she has podcasts on her portfolio — an aspect that many marketers could copy.

Carin has quite a few collections on her portfolio. She even has a "Miscellaneous" section, something that can be helpful to other marketers — not every piece of content needs to find a home.

Since then, she has worked with big companies, governments, NGOs, agencies, and startups. You can find Rosanne's marketing portfolio here.
