Publishing Local Articles
By publishing articles in local newsletters or magazines that use freelancers, you can help your community and establish contacts. When readers need services, they will remember your how-to article and maybe they'll give you a call.
Helping Community Organizations
Many organizations need volunteers or donations. If you help out a non-profit you will become well-known in your community, and you may even get a little free advertising out of it if they make flyers.
Scheduling Speaking Engagements
Offering your services as a speaker can be a great way to promote your services. Whether you're simply speaking to a group of high school students or giving a major presentation at a Chamber meeting, you are making contacts in the area and showing that you know your stuff.
