    that to me is considered a type of "cold calling" .. . sorry i guess i should have been more clear

    As far as just leaving the business card and walking away . . i never do that. . .(well i mean unless you have to) but i like call first and just set up an appointment that way YOU KNOW you get to talk to the man in charge
