Self-Promotion Rules for Freelancers

Do amazing work. The strongest way to "promote" your work — is to get to work! Be prolific, punctual and high-impact. Your clients will talk about you behind your back (in a good way).

Be social. Update your Facebook status & Twitter feed regularly — but don't fall down the social networking rabbit-hole! Aim for 15 minutes a day (about 3 updates).

Be (strategically) transparent. Working on a really intriguing project, or creating an exceptional product? Talk about it! On your blog, on the phone, in your newsletters, during interviews — confidentiality agreements permitting, of course

Make connections (for other folks). Making solid referrals and gracious introductions for clients & colleagues casts you in a radiant light, and elevates your standing in the entrepreneurial community.

Get outside. Make an effort to get offline and into the "real world" at least once a day. Pin up flyers & business cards at coffee shops. Shake hands. Exchange digits. Smile.
