Business Idea Help

edited December 2014 in Sales
So I have a great business plan that I've worked very hard on. I believe (very strongly) that I can succeed, there's only one thing that I'm not sure how to do. My business requires contacting businesses and giving them my "sales pitch". But I have been looking and most companies only have general emails that make it seem that my sales pitch will just looked over as a scam. I KNOW that if they just heard me out or read what I have to offer that I could make them a client, my only problem is how do I get them to hear me out? Call them, email? What's my best option?
Thanks for any replies in advance!

    Same as others, not sure I understand correctly.
    I'd suggest maybe to use LinkedIn InMail.  You have to pay but then you can find the right contact in the industry you target based on job titles for example. Then, you send message through LinkedIn to connect with this person.  I'd suggest it for B2B and to avoid falling in the SPAM folders if you send it from your email to people who have never heard from you.
