I normally do local web-design and photography to keep me alive, so I have various offline marketing techniques. One of the techniques that's been working particularly well for me lately is hitch-hiking. Since I haven't bothered to learn to drive yet I stick mainly to hitch-hiking to get around, and surprisingly it is a great way of networking. If it's legal, and safe in your local area you may want to give it a try for some offsite advertising. Method. It's a little more challenging then just sticking your thumb out and getting a ride. When someone picks you up you're automatically entered into conversation just by common courtesy, you can control how the conversation goes, just be sure to mention you do web-design (or whatever else you do) to see if it spikes there interest. If it does interest them start questioning them and see if they could use your services and then pitch your service to them. It really isn't that challenging you just have to be comfortable with your services and pitch. Client #1 The first client that I got through this method was a website for a local paddle-boarding company several months ago, I've done photography, and web-design for them. Profit of $450 Client #2 My second client that i got through hitching was a professional hip-hop artist and dancer. She wanted a website to showcase her music and her personal portfolio, I did the design and graphics for this project. Profit of $300 Client #3 One of my larger clients so far. This person runs a wood-shop and breeds Corgis, and needed a website and photography for both. I did all the graphics, photography, and design for this project. Profit of $1,350 Client #4 This client was another wood worker who ran a wood-shop, actually he rented shop space from the previous client. I was picked up by them hitching and he requested a site for his wood-shop which I did all the design, photography, and graphics for. Profit of $700 The four $700 clients. In the last two days I've been hitchhiking a lot more then usual. I've gone over 400 miles, easily. On my first ride I got a gig for a bed and breakfast website, AND a organic farm website. My second ride (third client) was for a local bakery who wants a website where they can sell baked goods online. My third ride I rode in the back of the truck and couldn't talk to the driver. My fourth ride was from the founder of an upcoming non-profit that plans on establishing a self-sustaining community and they need a website, and an online content manager. I'm doing each site for $700 profit.
