SEO, paid advertising, networking, word of mouth, leaving flyers/business cards in places people can find them, basically just get your name out there and make it easy for people who are likely to need your services to find you.

Usually your work would talk for itself, but it even needs to be supported with the right kind of marketing strategies. Rightly suggested by Paul Murray, you got to be visible to people where there are better chances of people who would be interested in the services you offer. Now, at what places can you make your existence be felt, forums such as this one, web hosting forums, freelance forums can be the best places in my opinion.
Since social networks are booming, you can go viral using this medium. A nice out-of-the box thinking can take you ahead in the competition.

But honestly, it is much easier to build a reputation, the true challenge is to maintain it :icon_wink:
