Marketing, promoting, getting traffic, followers etc.
None of these things are easy and cannot be realistically achieved through a couple of gigs.
Imagine going to comicon looking for clients. With all the professional, attractive, well planned exhibitors, you run into the middle and start shouting that you are the best. You will get a few confused looks as people walk past you but you won’t get any clients/sales.
That’s what your current marketing is doing, if even that.
If you want to be successful with marketing you have to spend either a lot of money or a lot of time or a combination. You need to be focused on who your audience is and what you offer them. Trying to fake it JUST WONT WORK. I see it every week, people coming to me saying “but I spent $xxx on …” but when I ask them why they did that specific thing, they have no real idea. It seemed like a good idea is the general thing they say.

Who is your ideal client? Remember, when describing an ideal client, you need to almost picture someone in your mind, not say something like “everyone”.
