Classified Ads: these are the classic (pun intended) way to advertise anything from a room-for-rent to services-for-sale. They worked well in the newspapers and they still function just as well online. Tons of forums have threads of classifieds so hard- working and talented people like you can have a decent and highly visible area for you to be seen by people who are looking for help.
Why, though, would you bother with joining forums and posting on classifieds when you can just hunt around freelance sites for people who would be interested in your services? The great thing about forums and classifieds is that you're putting yourself in an environment of like- minded people. This means that there's a greater probability that people will actually be interested and hire you. Isn't that better than putting yourself on display and hoping somebody will actually stop and take a look?
