Welcome Solta, great thread. I agree with everyone who says that there is a market for quality web design. The key in my opinion is networking, networking, and networking. If you can give a class for the "do it yourself" crowd at your local chamber of commerce, it could be a goldmine of future business/referrals. It sounds like you are already on the right track with referrals from current clients. Little things like a follow-up fruit basket with thank you card make happy customers that think of you first when referring someone.
