I have been working as freelancer for more than 5 years. But I don't know any marketing tips to promote my services. How can I get direct clients or clients abroad.

To short-cut the process, perhaps you could share some of the ways you've been marketing your services, what type of clients you target, and where they are. I imagine you've been marketing yourself fairly successfully or you wouldn't still be in business after five years.

Do you know any Azerbaijani to English or Azerbaijani to Russian translators, or can you find them? If they are employed by direct clients they may be able to introduce you to people in their organization that need the other direction. At least that's worked for me.

WWA and About me Jan 30

I guess you already know about WWA and about me of Proz, but I found that you haven't collected any WWA. How about asking clients to give translation feedback? It can be your marketing resource, like professional references. Also, it would be better to add some information to the "About me" section of your Proz profile in order to promote yourself.
