2. Forums & Portfolios
This option is great for freelancers who provide services like editing, photography, legal advice accounting & more!
3. Guest Posts
Find some friends with your niche.. Whether it be lifestyle, math, science etc. Collaborate this way you can share readers & hopefully drive traffic to each others pages. Example, you may cover a subtopic that your collaborator may not & earn a couple of clients.

Yes, old school I know! But I believe they’re effective. Give them out to everyone you meet. My mom keeps a stack and evens hands them out to people she holds conversations with in public.Nothing wrong with free promotion.
