    I want a program that finds all of the reviews good and bad like Place Scout and that scrapes the businesses address and that can export all of the addresses and names.

    I would go with place scout and I may have too, but I would like to not because it is $197 for just 3 months. If anybody knows of a cheaper alternative then please let me know.

    Thanks

    I use Places Scout and localscraper. Places Scout has a lot of great features I haven't been able to find else where. However, it is really SLOW!, even with proxies. The reputation report it generates is really good for marketing to prospects. Yes its a bit costly, but to me it saves me a lot of time, so its worth it to me.

    Localscraper, is great because its fast. I can scrape a google map in a matter of minutes. Its also cheap. However, it doesn't provide the in depth analysis I need for marketing purposes.

    So to speed things up. If I am prospecting for ORM clients I do the following:
    I use localscraper to scrap google maps to find prospective clients. It pulls the number of google reviews and rating (if 5 or more reviews), plus it pulls the google plus url for that business. I then sort the scrape in excel to find prospects which meet my criteria. I then dump those prospects into Places Scout to do a reputation report on.

    Saves a bunch of time and I can find 20-50 prospects in a couple of hours.
