Just be very good to the customers you have and more will follow. Great customer service is always the best key. I will drop whatever i am doing to help a customer with a problem. It seems to help..
Also, you would be surprised how many friends you can turn into clients. I plant seeds and encourage my friends to open websites and of course i will host them
I am however in my mid to late twenties and alot of my friends own businesses or are just curious about making money on the internet. I dont think this would work if someones friends are young and cant afford the monthy payments.
Basically look around and find a lead and follow it.
It is a very slow process but i have been told it gets better after you have been around and have made some good relationships.
Hope this helps.
OH yeah it also, is very costly if you plan on advertising on the internet. I recommend printing fliers and posting them at kmart, car washes, colleges or something. you will get about the same response and it wont cost you an arm and leg. IMHO
