"I am bad at BD" is a bad way to look at things. If you want to start your business, you got to be the first salesman for it - no two ways about it. If you can't sell what you make/do, no one else will be able to do it.
Just get down and get your hands dirty.

Every successful business was a beginner in the market at some time. If you see any of the biggest company,when they started they were out of resources. But the common thing among them was never say NO attitude.
I am also trying to establish a new staffing solution company and I dont have any resources as of now and on the top I dnt have much of finances. But I am still optimistic about my targets and goals.
I suggest you to keep on trying. Tell your friends, colleagues and who so ever you know about your work. Read news papers, jobs sections and call to them who have posted job there. Even if you dont get the contract you will get the contacts. This way you will also come to know what not to do while talking to the prospective clients.
Do it once, Do it right.

Our seniors are sharing valuable points to you , In addition before started sourcing kindly get vendors apt job description ,preferred years of experience ,preferred region of candidates ,primary skills , salary package , other skills ,after clarifying these things , you can start your sourcing as well as before given the profiles to vendors , kindly screen the candidates with vendors requirements
kindly compare the both side requirements and send the profiles , It will really works for you
some consultancies are just sent the profiles without this requirement comparison .
All the best

I appreciate your decision,
Now my suggestion:: First short list few industries where attrition is very high.
2nd: Going by the sites sounds good,as suggested to you already,but only for the out station firms.
3rd: For near and around its better to go yourself to firms and meet the HR guyz personally after proper appontment
once they are in for a game,it's for a long term for sure.
I also persued my management studies in HR and Marketing(infact I am a fresher of batch 2011-13),so I kind of have that faith on you that
you would be able to talk direct yet be felt like smoothies.
And yes,if you happen to come across an opening with a good sized and reputed advertisement agency,specifically in ATL section
in the location of Gurgaon/New Delhi,Attached is my resume,in case required.

My suggestions are:
Since the company is at initial stage, focus on BPO, customer support, marketing, construction jobs. Approach middle level companies & build relationships. They require man power at regular intervals. These sectors are best suitable for the consultancies to sustain at the initial stages.
After gathering few clients from these sectors, you can expand your network to Manufacturing,Pharma & Biotech companies. Work on providing jobs to graduates. Then concentrate on software, build network with 2 or 3 major software organizations. Focus on freshers rather than experience. Don't go for naukri, monster accounts at this stage. Tie up with major B.Tech & B.Sc colleges in your area.
Hope this is helpful to some extent. Correct me, if I am wrong.
