    Go to Google an find 200 websites that are not responsive. Make a AMAZING email with all the benefits of getting responsive and the clients that they are losing. Sent them that email with an offer. After 4 days give them a call.

    Good luck!

    Build a perfect personal website, try a advertisement netowork, Adwords recommended. Might work. Local clients would be a good start though.

    I had a successful local web dev business for a while. We'd just find business owners with terrible websites, take them to coffee and pitch a new site. We closed probably 50% at least and made good money at it. After you do it for a while, referrals will pour in. It's really good work if you can tolerate the idiots.

    How about friends? Nearby local companies? Build a portfolio and clients will start coming to you.

    Get out of that "I prefer to work online" mentality it will kill you in this business.

    I agree... but I would add FB pixel + retargeting with Display Network in Adwords. Of course, keep your landing page optimized to get leads.
