Can cold calling ever be used for a small business. Or stopping in to drop off a flyer. I am not talking about mass flyers or telemarketing I am talking about selective targeted businesses. If your service is something they could use is there a way to directly contact them without getting the cold shoulder? I have been calling related business' who I think could benefit from my services but I get the feeling I am just an annoyance to them and have not gotten any feedback. I have stopped in and spoken to managers, and left a flyer or business card but have not yet received any work through this method. how would you react if someone called your business out of the blue or showed up at your work place with a flyer? would it make a difference if it was something you were interested in?
