Is there any differences between these sentences:
- I get contacted by clients all the time
- I am contacted by clients all the time
I heard people using both before. For me, I always use 2. If both are wrong, how do I change the sentence?

In formal writing, the “be” form is used almost exclusively.
In short, you can use either informally in the U.S.
