You should be keeping an organized log of the prospective clients you meet. While periodically reminding the people on this list of your existence may be helpful, you should also be keeping them updated on your latest projects. Every once in a while, you should contact them and bring them up to date on what you have been doing. Perhaps a client who once thought they needed a translator with more experience, will suddenly consider you for a project once they see what you have been up to. A short, simple, personalized email should be enough. Simply state who you are, and list the latest projects you have been working on. Just be sure that your emails are spaced out enough so that they don’t become annoying.
