    What are some of the techniques you are using to get your foot in the door on new business?

    Cold calling, walk in, direct mail???

    Any ideas would be great!

    It is just that simple... Make the phone call and ask. For me it seems to help that when I meet with the site contact I state that I am a member of SIMA and explain what it is. I often get a great response. Every little connection with a customer helps! IMO
