    I was hired this spring as the office manager and now I need to find Potential Commercial Customers for snow plowing. I keep calling places and they all give me the same response that they "use National Companies" is there a way to go around that so we could place our bid in for snow plowing? Any suggestions?

    Ask them which nationals they are using, then contact those nationals. Also you can try convince them that you well be easier then dealing with the nationals they are using. If they like you they can ask that you provide the service for them through the national company
