People buy from people, and they investigate solutions recommended, or even pointed out by, people they trust.
If you sell a suite of services to Fortune 500 CFOs and their deputies, why wouldn’t you also want to send your offers to people in an operational role – like the VP of Ops or Field level folks?

Certainly you don’t want to go bananas and email everyone in a company from the CEO to the Janitor, but don’t ignore the eco-system around your end buyer. You never know what the chatter is at the water cooler, in meetings or over drinks after work. Make sure you are in front of everyone that makes sense – and give yourself artificially high awareness inside the account. Best of all, it doesn’t cost you any more to send 10,000 emails than it does to send 1. Good selling.
