    Hi Ian,

    Good luck with the web design business.

    We build apps for business, and don't do website design. Maybe worth a direct discussion as we occasionally get asked about a website, which we steer clear of. Equally there maybe some of your clients that want an app AND a website!

    If you haven't done so already, suggest you look at 4Networking.

    Hello Ian,

    Try meeting local businesses and also see business support department in your local council if they can help.

    We, as business consultants, offer an integrated package of services that includes five page web site for the start-ups and small businesses. You may be able to download the Enterprise Booster Package Leaflet to see what is included.

    Contact me or send a PM if you need any more details

    Ian, hi! Remember me, i've helped you on facebook before, e.g. contracts and stuff! Good to see you here!
    If you look at the local networking groups, alot will already have web designers taking the only space available apart from the groups that don't have those rules, like 4networking and more casual networking groups.
    Remember it will take time to build relationships, it won't be a quick process, so be patient.
    AND do not give away your services for free, you have been doing website a long time now.
    I've just realised how old this post is! opps! Oh well this might help someone else.
