Or you just knock on couple of agency doors, studio doors... those people haven't gone anywhere.

Just because someone is online doesn't mean that's the only way to get in touch.

Re: How to get new customers?

A lot of interesting points. I guess what you do also depends on what type of customer you're after.

Are you picking up much work on people per hour paulkris? I did register with them, but then concentrated my efforts in a different direction as it seemed to be high volume low cost work, which was not the direction I wanted to go in.

I've gone down the route of requesting information interviews with people. Takes me into unfamiliar territory, but I'm sure it will be beneficial in time. If they're regular clients I would only need pick up 6-12 of them.

Jerry1: I get 2-3 projects per month on pph. Sometimes I do take small / low cost jobs if I get my price per hour right.

I'm fascinated by the fact that some users are taking far more work there. I've bookmarked to read later their blog with user stories, maybe I'll learn a trick or two about marketing http://blog.peopleperhour.com/group/user-stories/

I like what Doug said about courting so I think I'll try that too. I mean just to contact a few photographers and see how it goes.
