    Figure out which businesses are the most apt to use your service or products and concentrate on them from most likely to least likely. Concentrate on ten per week. Send a personal letter or note card... not a form letter, a handwritten introduction. Ask for an appointment. Tell them what you do and how you can help them. Be sincere. If you get an appointment but no sale, ask for referrals of others who may be in need of your business. Network with other business owners. Contact and join the Chamber of Commerce. In order to sell your product or service, you start by selling yourself.

    Putting up your own website would be much easier for your future prospects to see your business. Most of the time, businessmen/buyers resort online to look for B2B products and services locally. There are now cheap or even free website offers online. But if putting up a website is too overwhelming for you to handle, you could still advertise online by registering your business to several B2B directories and websites. It's is easy and free. You just have to search for these directories on Google and Yahoo. Just type in B2B directories in (local country/place).

    You could also resort to offline promotion by relatives and friends referrals. Give them your sample product with your business card. A little favor from your loved ones won't hurt much, right?

    Well join the local industry associations which are a great place to get relevant market contacts fast and cheap and you can send out mailers or organise a "get-to-know-us" party for the members. Always network and ensure that there is positive word-of-mouth at any given opportunity without seeming like a pile-on.

    Promotional products are very effective for this type of marketing effort. Small gifts with the name and number of the company you want to promote. Mugs are somewhat of a standard. In the US there was 18 billion spent on this form of marketing last year. Thats more than spent on cable TV.

    Hi, perhaps you can try Google adwords to market your service/product.

    Google adwords is a text-based system for advertising on its site and its partner sites. The service allows you to create your own ads, choose keywords to help match your ads to your audience, and control the cost of your advertising—you pay only when people click on your ad (a cost per click plan). Anyone wishing to promote a product on Google can enroll in this program.

    you can get a 5 detail pages information about Google adwords at :

    Good Luck && Best Wishes!

    Nobody can answer this question really. It depends 100% on what your target is. If its candy store owners that would be different than construction equipment manufacturers or plumbing supply companies. So the one answer is: know your target and find out where they tend to get their (credible) information. Get in front of them in that venue.
