By the way,we are quarry owner and also stone factory,supplying all kinds of marble and granite products. what's your job and your products?

I think you have to find the companies abroad and approach them with you products. I am a housewife as of now but i am opening a restaurant at home by the end of this month. very busy setting up the place now. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

Most people do not open email from people they don't know and some emails are blocked..I would say the best why for you to make contact is to Mail your information with samples..this will at least get it into there hands...From my experience most company's come closer to buying when they have it in hand with contact information..Try mailing a few sample boxes and see what comes from it...I am a graphic designer for a Beauty Supply Company..and I also take orders over the phone..we supply to 7 states and I have no problem up-selling a customer when I send out samples and tell them what the products does...More then once I have turned a $80.00 order into $200.00 orders..But you also have to introduce your self as a person...No one likes to be strong armed....as the saying goes ...(you attract more with honey)

Personally, I think this will continue to always be an issue for people trying to be in Business for themselves. Finding the right market who will buy your product and if you are looking for stores or other sellers quite a challenge as well. Knowing the price you need to market it at, and your mark up, etc. At first it is always a challenge, but worth it when you succeed.
