Social Media helps, create a facebook page if you already haven't done so. Create an online portfolio where your work can be viewed, such as: http://www.behance.net/
Get your work into art shows/ exhibits and start networking with other artists.
Create your own style. Find what can define you as an artist and set you apart from everyone else. Think of all of the artists you look up to, why do you like these artists? Do their use of colors or techniques grab your attention? Why are they so good in your eyes? What makes them different? Make a list of these qualities and try to incorporate some of these techniques into your art, or try something completely different. (:
