    How to find good business contacts? I'm not the club type, nor the bar type, nor do I think I'd find somebody responsible and/or very logical at those places anyway (no offense anyone, talking about the majority).

    I'm out of ideas on how to find business contacts...

    List yourself on escort services.

    Great way to meet a lot of travelling businessmen and an easy way to get access to them when their guard is down.

    That way you can only find contacts at your workplace, which means it has to be a big company in the first place, and you have to get to the management. There's few big companies and I work for a small one, so doesn't work.


    I'm looking for serious answers...

    Going to bars(popular upscale lounges) and being social is the best way to get business contacts.

    These people are men(and women) too, and many times people with money like to go out and enjoy themselves regularly.

    It's not always true with family men, but still. You can get to those by golfing, social clubs, parties hosted by friends, etc.

    The basic principle is to get yourself in places where meeting strangers is common and preferably a place where wealthier/business people or your target demographic might be.

    But bars/lounges are great for me. I get plenty of business from it. In fact, one of my largest accounts is through a woman I met randomly at a bar. She happens to be an executive and decided I should get their business. It's that easy and happens ALL the time.

    That's right. You may get lucky at any old bar, but it does have to be a somewhat classy/upscale joint for wealthy or other business people to go there.
