For starters...

1 - You can showcase some of your work on social sites (like LinkedIn for example) and start making connections at the same time.

2 - Having your own website (blog or portfolio site) is usually a good idea. Then you can direct potential clients to it and they can see some of your writing, And they can also see that you're for real because you took the time to create a business website.
Also, owning your own website means other platforms can't shut you down (like if they go out of business or inadvertently suspend your account for whatever reason).

Here's a couple other threads on this forum that might be useful to you. They talk about other ways to get started...

1st) Welcome to the copywriters forum :)/

2nd) I don't understand the question. If you're completely new to copywriting, and don't have a portfolio of anything you've written, what work are you going to showcase?
