How to find first customer?

Description: I am experienced software developer and I am looking for idea for new business. Because I do not have any product to sell yet, I am willing to work for free to develop this product for a customer who will be willing to share his business needs with me. I plan to start small and develop a product that can be expanded in the future. The product I am talking about can be e-commerce application, a wireless application or anything in between. After first project is complete, I want to expand the knowledge acquired from first project to develop similar products for new customers.
 
Need from others:
Need Customers Need Customers
My question is how do I start on the path of finding first customer? I was going to go out and talk to small businesses in my area to see if they are interested in a free product. Does it make sense to look for the customer this way? Have anybody done this kind of search? Is there any literature on this topic I can read? Can you share your experience finding business idea and a customer?
