The internet is cluttered with spam, useless back-links, and repetitive information. If you're a freelancer like I am, you've come to realize that you're chances of landing a gig on a freelance work site are next to none. I've began to market my design / writing services offline, to local businesses that run websites, and through gigs listed on local job boards. Offline marketing would work for almost any way you can make money online. Some great methods for offline marketing include : business cards, flyers, banners, word-of-mouth, stickers, etc. If you have any experience with offline marketing and would like to share please post below, otherwise, discuss.
