Cold PhoneAnyone who’s ever made cold calls for a living knows it’s the most tedious and demoralizing experience known to the business world.

    • If #1 fails, join LinkedIn groups that they are a member of, and post discussions that are relevant to their business challenges or needs

 

    • Create a LinkedIn group which contains discussions which are highly salient to their business needs and invite them to join

 

    • If #3 fails, create a LinkedIn group which contains discussions which are highly salient to their business needs and invite their competitors to join

 

    • Follow them on Twitter and retweet their content until they follow you back
