Default Conducting Information Interviews

Does anyone have ideas on how to get an audience with people to conduct information interviews about my product? Besides making cold calls and trying to get to the decision-maker, are there any other ideas that can be recommended to assist me in this effort?

What type of product do you have? That might help trying to determine how to help.

I am thinking that before you can have an interview you may need to make your product available to these people? To me it seems that it something that you're planning to sell to large companies and you have to keep in mind that these business have supervisors and managers that are very busy so a good way of getting a sit down would be to get intouch with them first.

One free way would be linkedIn, check there to see if your target companies are registered. You can usually get a list of the managers, CEOs etc that work there and connect with them.

Do some research to find influencers in your intended market. Woo those people and provide a sample product. More voices sharing the same message will be an advantage for you.
