    I believe you answered your own question, the next step in promoting yourself online would be to get a website to show examples of the type of work you can do, give a little info on yourself and details of the services you can offer. You might also consider promoting yourself on http://www.deviantart.com/

    Why don't you begin with a Blogger Blog, where:

    - you explain exactly what you do
    - show samples of your work
    - how much you charge (on average)
    - add a contact address

    Then start promoting the blog through forums, blog commenting, social bookmarking, free classified ads, etc.

    You need to amend your opening post there, 50Cent: Tie Suit Design. It says here's a preview of my Tshirt design and there's no pic. I eventually found it in the portfolio.

    I like the design but shouldn't have had to hunt it down. :) You'd be doing yourself a favor if you add it to the blog post.

    That needs changed, 50Cent. I would suggest you amend that to say "Thanks for visiting my Online Portfolio. I am currently available for Freelance graphic design work. Please Contact Me for a quote" and link the Contact Me part to your Contact Me page.

    I think the very plain layout is a good idea. You'll want your graphics to be what stands out. :)

    Ok thanks the post was just a test out. What posts and image there are all under testing. I wil do the editing soon. I also cannot link the contact me to my contact page because it is the sub title.

    Join sites like the Envato Marketplace, and sell your work. There is a section where you can place your advertisement and if you can establish a reputation, you could go far with your service.

    The site looks a bit plane so I suggest Get a new Attractive skin.

    Have you tried some of the suggestions already given to you in this thread? If so, which ones? How have they worked out for you?

    Is there a reason as to why you haven't? I've gotten a few responses from when I had my advert up on the Envato Marketplace (Theme Forest). I'm sure if you can make good web designs, people will be interested.

    You may want to search for online directories in your area.

    50Cent you should probably request a review of your portfolio site in our Website & Graphic Reviews, you will get helpful feedback and suggestions from that.

    Yes, you can still build links to your site and you can ensure that there is quality content on your site to help with your search engine ranking. These are the most important elements of SEO.

    The Envato Marketplace is a whole range of inter-connected networks with relation to graphics, design, music, scripts and videos. For you, you can add your site in the graphics portfolio, as well as sell some of your work. As you gain reputation, so will your site and thus advertise your service to people who are searching for those certain things, ie. graphics.

    EasyHits4u members are generally marketers and people who are associated with an affiliate network. They tend to have their own marketing team, graphics team, coding team etc. A small percentage of those members are looking for a graphic designer. Why would someone who is trying to make money spend more money on a service? They wouldn't.

    You need to target your niche.
