I have been freelancing for more than a year now. ItsIt's been great in terms that I get paid decent amount for hours I have put in. My issue is I'd like to diversify risk and find new clients beyond these online sites. I'd appreciate if you can share you experience on how you went about growing your customer base

My freelancing work has all come from oDesk, Guru, or Freelancer. How can I find clients outside the freelancing sites?
