There are quite a few people on this forum who can help you. Could you provide a little more information about what you have in mind?
Are you looking for a partner to do marketing, sales and business development? Or do you want to simply launch some lead generation campaigns?
If you want a partner, you're probably talking about a percentage of sales and probably some up-front investment. If you want a marketing agency, that's more likely to be on a per-project, hourly or retainer basis.

I am Murthy, business development director of AIT Infotech, an IT company from India. We are looking to hire a business development consulting firm to help us win IT projects in US & Europe. Is this something anybody can help with and if so, what would be the fee structure for such a business development firm? For more information about our company profile and our IT services, please visit our website www.ait-infotech.com.
Looking forward to some replies.
You could use an individual or a consulting firm. It depends on how much money you want to spend and on how quickly you want results.
An individual will probably take longer but be less expensive. A consulting firm will be able to place more resources at your disposal, which should help things move faster.
I think it would be hard to do much for less than $10K a month (and it should probably ramp up to about $50K if you're looking for $3 million in revenue from the U.S.).
You'll get results faster if you have a compelling value proposition and a well-defined target market. Who, exactly, are you trying to sell to? What sets you apart from other offshore outsourcing businesses?
