Keep an eye on Inquisix

Here's an interesting new product, just into beta: Inquisix. This is a service for sales people who need a more effective alternative to cold calling to generate leads.

They say: "Now there's no need to waste time on cold calling when contacts are just an Inquisix Trusted Referral Away."

Here is something about their process:

"… [snip] Inquisix reviews those requests and alerts only the members who could make those introductions. Those members review your online profile and reputation to determine if their customers would be interested in an introduction. [snip…]"

I've looked at the product (even though I am not a 'prospect' myself) and it makes a lot of sense. You may want to check it out - they are taking beta applications.
