Hi Keith;

Puzzleman made two very good points. Visiting people shows an aggressive desire to work with the people you are visiting. While that’s not one of my strong points, I’ll do it.

Also, the car analagy is spot on.

Maybe you could yourself build a website. There are a number of ways you can do it for free.

I know you have great pictures of your work. I have gotten a lot of work by visiting a business, say a Architectural Hardware Supplier, and showing them a picture in my portfolio. I’ll do this under the guise of asking about what hardware they would recommend for a similar cabinet or piece of furniture. Invariebly, they’ll look through the entire portfolio, then ask for some cards. And they do reccommmend clients to me.

Also, more often than not, a customer of theirs, that happens to be close by will ask if they can look at the pictures, too. I found this quite by accident, but

Good luck,
