Potential clients are going to want to see samples of your work. They want to have some idea of your rates, even if it's just a wide price range. They want to get a feel for who you are and if they'd like to work with you.
If you aren't comfortable with Wordpress, with plugins and hosting, you can try a simpler solution. I use Weebly (the paid version), and you can also try Squarespace. The template sites can be a lot easier to use if you are a beginner.
You can get your website up and running over a weekend, and then use that to promote your services.
It's a LOT easier when someone asks for samples (and they will) to simply point them to your site instead of sending along samples to every person who asks. (Or - even worse -when people ask you to write a sample for free. Which you should never do. Ever.)
Wishing you Peace, Long Life, and Success --
