Then they all go to sites like Elance and Odesk to look for work. Start small- building up from there. Once in a while you will find clients who turn out to be long term, repeat business and word of mouth.
Once you have experience you can usually land a couple of well paying clients who can take up most of your available time and you really wont have to market as much.
I have learned through chatting with others and running a web design service- there is no better marketing method than word of mouth.
Here is a VA Guide to starting your own business written by a VA friend of mine: I think it starts out at the last post and goes backward- so you might have to dig through it for the topics that interest you.
She also compiled it into an easy to browse book that includes additional info: http://21daystovabiz.com/
