  • Endless chain: making one thing lead to another, by asking: ‘Do you know anyone else who might be interested ...?’; by analyzing: ‘If this banker is interested, which others can I contact?’Personal observation: keep your eyes open, opportunities are all around; watch the trade press, find out who is moving into those new offices you drive past every day, walk downstairs in office blocks and see who else is on other floorsChance contacts: all sorts of people might be potential customers, eg: on a plane, find out who you are sitting next to (a good opening is to ask how much they paid for their ticket!)Cold canvass: knocking, uninvited, on doors hardly ever has a good rate of strike, but it may be a good way of discovering, from a receptionist, the buyer’s name - making a second contact later more likely to be usefulLists: there are a host of sources of names, everything from ‘Yellow Pages’ to association membership lists or interest groups, and directories of all sortsPast customers: go back to a dormant customer, who may only be not buying out of neglect (a good tactic when you are new to a company; ask who have others given up on?)Extracurricular activities: it is worth analyzing what committees you should sit on, what conferences you should attend, etc; share the list you produce with colleagues to make auctioning it manageable
