One of the biggest challenges in self-promotion is developing a creative portfolio to showcase your work. Many artists choose to create hard copy press kit, which is often a costly option when distributing to a large group of industry professionals. With the introduction of Electronic Press Kits, it is now easier than ever for artists to create a creative portfolio to distribute to talent scouts and professionals all over the world.

While most sites charge fees for producing these creative portfolios, Lafango provides this service for free. With an easy to use interface, artists can create their free Electronic Press Kits and distribute them all around the world in a manner of minutes.This is just one, of many, tools that Lafango provides to talented individuals to get discovered and make a name for themselves. Lafango artists have a public home for all of their various types of media, whether it be Audio, Video, Images or Text.

Artists can also customize their stage by changing how their media is organized in folders or galleries.
Photo Uploading & Sharing
While other photo sharing sites often constrain their users with file size limits, Lafango is breaking the mold by removing those limitations.
