    Wherever I want
    Home Page:
    Either the biz owner him/herself or their marketing director or director of operations etc.

    I would rather get myself in the position of people coming to me instead of the other way around. For seo services, and for renting/buying various sites I have.

    Online sites that specialize in this or offline events are all of interest to me.

    Chamber of commerce and other local biz type meetings come to mind

    Leads Groups are great. Le Tip, Toastmasters, etc etc. You can go once free, collect biz cards from everybody, give your elevator speech. Always good for a couple sales. Also, trade shows are outstanding, to meet owners etc. If wanted, you could spend 52 out of 52 weeks either going or coming from one. I will tell you what has worked if you dont get caught. I have kids go to the local Country Club and slip Biz Cards on the driver side window, had solid success with that....(not really what you are looking for)

    Get those $100 bill looking business cards and every time you go to the gas station leave one in the credit card slot.

    Look for a local BNA group

    Really any type of special interest or club.

    I keep mentioning this site like it were my own but it's not I swear.

    Use Meetup.com and you can find groups to meet up with around your area. I like to join the startup groups or business owner groups and check them out. For startups, some of them have financial backing of some sort so they have the cash at hand to pay a good fee for a website/SEO.
