Hi Dylan, Marketing practices depend on your business model and your customers. If you can only reach a few entities, it's usually best to go directly to them with your pitch. If you want widespread publicity, more traditional channels are usually most efficient: Radio, TV, billboards, etc. If you're creative you can probably come up with ways to get into this type of media very inexpensively. Others have been successful with door-knob hangers.
Obviously, your ILEC has the all the voice/data circuit information you could ever want, but I have a feeling that they will sell you their fiber routes before they sell you their customer list. You can get business records from infousa.com. Most libraries have a subscription. Check with them before using it for commercial purposes. One of the columns the data has is number of computers. It's probably not that accurate, but it may be better than nothing. The IRS does not collect property taxes, local municipalities do. Check your city's assessor's office. It looks like Spring Green farmed it out to: Krueger Appraisals, LLC/Greg Grandprey 608-837-6005. They may be able to give you the data on CD. Note that the building owner is not necessarily the business owner. - Tony On 11/30/2005 7:53 PM, Dylan Oliver created: > Hi, > > Just wondering how you all approach marketing.
