    You're saying that you mailed them once; you didn't get a reply; you mailed them again; you still didn't get a reply; and now you a thinking of contacting them a third time?

    And these are people who have never previously contacted you, or who have expressed an interest in purchasing whatever service you are offering?

    The conclusion seems inescapable: they are not interested. So, why waste your time with them?

    Contacting one or two people at a time, and continuing to press them even though you get no response, doesn't seem like a very efficient form of marketing.

    That's an oxymoron.

    Would you want them emailing you about their services, and ringing you after you ignored all of their emails? I doubt it. You may get a few hits eventually, but I don't think it's a good way to get business, as it means you are annoying a lot of people along the way.
