When I started my technical writing business 3 years ago, I prepared a
marketing pamphlet. It has proven to be wasted effort. I have yet to send it
to anyone. For the entire 3 years, I have had about as much work as I can
handle and have gotten it all by networking with fellow writers, word of
mouth, and being in the right place at the right time.
