I'm fairly new to the writing business. I was told to network a lot in order to attract new clients but I'm having a lot of trouble with that since I am introverted by nature and speaking about myself to people I don't know doesn't come naturally to me. I've tried, but it really is very hard for me to ''sell myself and my services.'' Are there any other ways to attract new clients? Also, how important is it to have an online presence when you're starting out? I've heard several conflicting opinions on that one.
