One thing you might want to consider is which way you want to start marketing. Do you want to approach the larger companies and show them how the small companies will help them increase production? Or do you want to go to the small companies and show them how to approach the big companies for contracts? With that question solved you then want to look at how to best accomplish that. How do you get the attention of a big firm? Well there is the old fashioned way of calling in an appointment with their head of operations. One thing you can also try is to put together a package including material on your company and what it does and sending it to the operations manager or even the C.E.O anyone who handles business to business at the firm.
Now if you want to target the small businesses you need to find a group of them such as this online community or a local chamber of commerce and see about getting your business on it. I know it can cost money up front but trust me it will be worth it from the connections you make. Also try going to trade shows and conventions where businesses have booths set up and people willing to work with other businesses and pitch your idea.
