Small Business Technology Needs

I'd like to extend my computer consulting services to small businesses and find myself overwhelmed with the vast number of potential target markets available. I'd like to narrow my target market down to businesses / organizations that fit the following criterion:

*Small businesses/organizations with an employee base of up to 15 employees
*Has one location, but not more than 3
*Needs IT support / computer repairs, but has no in-house IT support
*Needs IT support /computer repairs, but has no Managed Service Provider (MSP)
*Has no server infrastructure or need for one
*Has an Internet connection
*Who's mission critical software applications include:
*Web based applications (accessed with an Internet connection)
*Proprietary software that includes technical support from software vendor (in the event I have to work with
vendor to trouble proprietary software issues).

My problem is identifying industries of the consultant, entrepreneur, micro business, small business, mom and pop shop, etc. that fit this criteria....is it retail stores, real estate, spa's, salons, dental / doctor's offices....? Before I go door to door, I wanted to post in case there are any that quickly come to mind.
