I got started as social media consultant last year and every client I’ve gotten has been through word of mouth spreading from my first one. I have a blog, Twitter, etc. to promote myself but nothing is stronger than those personal networks.
I also recommend Fiverr.com. It’s all about gigs for $5 and I have one that is :I’ll teach you how to manage your social media for $5.” I set up HootSuite accounts, write out FB best practices, etc. and every once in a while someone will ask me to do more off of Fiverr. Even when they don’t, the $5s add up for my free time.
