Marketing for freelancers

I’ve been freelancing for only 5 months and I just realised something about all my clients so far – they have all come from different sources.

These include:

  • My first gig – personal contacts via LinkedIn
  • Next – someone I met from a local user experience group
  • Current contract – from one of the job boards
  • Current mentoring client – from an article in Digital Web, then through my website
  • One that I turned down – from a product demo I attended years ago, and kept loosely in touch with the vendor
  • Next contract (not confirmed)- a previous speaking engagement, then keeping in touch on a professional level

That’s interesting, isn’t it. Shows that it is more about being out there and people knowing I’m available than any sort of direct marketing.
