Self-Promotion Rules for Freelancers
Reward your fans. Send out an e-newsletter with some juicy "subscriber-only" content: an exclusive interview, freebie product or repeat-client discount.
Gather praise. Solicit fresh testimonials from a handful of ultra-happy clients, and file them away for future use — or, stick 'em up on your website, straightaway.
Write a meaty guest-post. Choose a website or blog with a built-in audience, so you're not spouting brilliance into an empty void. Tip: use Compete.com to check visitor & pageview stats, before you agree to post.
Attend an industry event. And it doesn't have to be a fancy (read: pricey) conference, either. Try a local start-up biz happy hour, user group, co-working space soiree, or industry Tweet-up. (Can't find one? Start one!)
Spruce up your online presence. Review your social media profiles + avatars. Update stale language and images, as needed.
