    I have found resources that will enable me to gather a large number of email addresses of company gm's and maintenance supervisors. Anyone have any luck with sending out emails....kinda like direct mailers to companies?

    your success rate would be significantly higher by either doing in-person visits with those people, or at least physically dropping off info for them with your biz card attached.

    email marketing (especially emails not requested) is always a risky proposition given the views of spam, especially if those companies have anti-spam software to sift out the junk. dependent upon their software, if you put the wrong word in your email, they'll never see it.

    from a professional standpoint, i have many years of internet strategy experience and i can count on 1 hand the times that i've ever recommended sending out such emails.
