Marketing and promoting your services will only take you so far. When you don’t have clients approaching you about work, you will have to take the initiative to find work on your own. Thankfully, there a number of websites available where consultants can find work.
While the websites listed above are great places to find work, consultants should also look at their established network. Whether it’s friends, family, college roommates, former colleagues, or your accountant, one of the easiest, and most effective, ways to find work is using your current network to find work.
Also, don’t forget to ask your previous clients for referrals. Word of mouth will be one of the best ways to attract new customers.
