Follow people and brands you admire on Instagram. Look for opportunities to meet up. Hubs will often post this type of info. Also, get an Eventbrite account and pay attention to Facebook for events that are in your area that are open to the public. Choose events that match your interests, and go. Be friendly. Talk to people. Pass out those business cards. Post about the event on your social media channels. Be sure to use the hashtag so people looking back over the event photos see your pics / videos.
