    Are you in the US? You say you are not from the US....

    If you are in the US I would recommend that you pick companies that are advertising in the paper, and local magazines. Also, I go after companies that are advertising on Yellowpages.com. This has worked well for me.

    Yellow pages, local business directories, job sites, local government bodies where they have a list of businesses under their charge, newspapers, magazines, you get the idea....

    The list can go on and on. Look for things around you. My last job is related to the f&b industry. I find leads in supermarkets where labels of local food importers or manaufactueres are sticked to their products. I started off finding new leads this way in my old job.

    Yelp, the paper, yellowpages... there are just so many places to look. Billboards even. Anyone who is already spending money on advertising should be a potential prospect.

    business directories for each city are a goldmine

    plus always talk about your business as word of mouth soon builds up contacts
