One of the toughest parts of freelancing, aside from dealing with your accounts and tricky clients, is finding work in the first place. Where do you start?

Here are just a few places to start looking:

  • Social Media – through Twitter, Facebook, local networking groups and websites, Google+ and other social networks
  • Online marketplaces – Peopleperhour, Fiverr and CreativePool
  • Offline – networking events in your local area, co-working venues (check the Freelance Lifestyle Co-Working Map or the new selection of co-working spaces from Regus Connect)
  • Referrals – Get in touch with your contacts, ask your Twitter friends for referrals and update your LinkedIn page with a request. Referrals are one of the best ways to get new business.
