If you’re self employed, what means do you use to find work? Do you bid on jobs through sites like bid clerk or do you rely completely on word of mouth, referral etc.

I have found the best success with word of mouth and person to person interaction. I have also tried Facebook, Yelp, Google Adwords, Porch, Thumbtack, Youtube, and a website, and have found work with all but Porch and Thumbtack, but referral work is by far my biggest source. Am working on getting a van all lettered up soon, so will see if that brings anything.

Everything I got for the past 10 years or so has been word of mouth. When I started I actually put an ad in the newspaper (what's a newspaper, right?), which actually got me some work....I think that would be hopeless now, though.
