- Read a blog - email usually listed.
- Visit a website with a valuable resource - visit contact page
- Go through old collection of business cards from people you have met once, but do not have a close relationship with.
- If you read about someone in the paper, call their company and ask for their email address.
The best way to approach someone you do not know via email is to make it about them. "I read your blog post and I thought it was brilliant. It tied in so well with what we do here at the Red Monkey Inn where I work. I think my tips will go up once I put your advice into action. Keep up the great blogging."
