It's also just a bad idea. Legitimate professionals will chalk you up as a
spammer, and not want to do business with you. How many folks here with
budgets for such things explicitly avoid spammers? I know I do.

If you want to gain a positive reputation, the best way to do so is to
actually work for it. It can't be purchased and it certainly can't be
obtained by email blasting a bunch of random addresses you purchased - but
a negative reputation certainly can be obtained in those ways and very
quickly, to boot.

What you can do is put yourself out there effectively. If you own a data
center facility, make sure it's listed on the data center map website. If
you provide connectivity, make sure your network has correct information on
peeringdb and other sites where folks like us go for information on
connectivity providers. If you are providing off-site backups, make sure
your website clearly and effectively communicates your pricing model along
with the technology used to do so and your testing methodology and
frequency, for example, as well. That's the sort of information that
legitimate professionals want to see, will search for, and will hence get
you good placement within google results (there's no SEO black magic that
works, either.)

You can of course also purchase advertising space within contexts that your
potential customers are likely to visit.

Good luck!
