I would think this sort of thing would be a no-brainer for a freelancer, especially one's repeat clients (when I was contracting, I used to take my best clients out for lunch, send them holiday cards, etc., all the usual sales call stuff). But there have only been a few contract writers who have recontacted me with any regularity over the years. It should not come as any great surprise that these writers tend to be the first ones who come to my mind if I need contractors.

One of my standard bits of advice to freelancers is to do something I always did as a wage slave: constantly keep in touch with your clients without being obtrusive or annoying about it.
