Update: Pressfolios Now in Public Beta

When I last wrote about Pressfolios, the platform was still private and my inbox was full of requests from you, dear readers, for invites to join.

I’m happy to report that the online portfolio service is now officially in public beta and they’ve launched their Pro version this week. So now you can all sign up without me. You can read about the free version here.

Pressfolios Pro means you get unlimited stories, which is a big plus since with the free version you can only display 12. You can also bulk and automatically upload from your RSS feed, create a custom domain, backup your stories via pdf and screenshots, and set your portfolio to private (though that sort of defeats the purpose, right?).

For all users, they’ve also come up with a Chrome extension to add stories from your browser. Right now, if you use the promo code “beta” until August 1 to get a “25% off forever” on the $12/month fee for Pro.
