    This is not an offer for service. (Yet) I can scrape for anyone a city a profession (ie: Dentist - Boston) and the local business information from Google Maps, Yahoo Local, Bing Local, Citysearch and Yelp based on your keyword and create csv file for you. It will contain the following information:

    • Business Name
    • Business Address
    • Business Phone
    • Business Email
    I am willing to offer this to BHW members. It could be huge and save a ton of time. I want to gauge interest. Please let me know if you have interest and if there is a good response I will offer this in services.

    that would be a good idea for getting leads to develop a local internet business. But, anyone can do it. Anyone can find the name, address, phone, e-mail. Why would i pay for your services? :)

    You are right. Anyone could do it, but going through multiple sites with dozens of pages and all the listings would take a long time without the scrape program I have set and dialed in for local listings.

    Hello, Is this a current service offered? I'd be interested in finding out what you can do. Specifically I'm looking for an Excel doc of Yelp or Google listings for a specific business type in a few Bay Area cities. Would like to have business name, phone, address, web site. Thanks.

    You can go to Manta.com and make an account. They have 90% of registered businesses on their and the bonus is they have the business owners names and sometimes a list of current employees and their titles. I would throw that into the scraper so you can provide a contact name. That will make it easier to get past gatekeepers. Instead of asking for "The Person in charge or marketing" or the "Owner" you have a name.

    Sounds like a good idea especially for someone who does telemarketing

    Hi there. I am currently struggling to complete a similar project via odesk, but folks there don't like to follow instructions very well.

    What would you charge to put together a lead list of 1000 restaurants?

    Look for a bot called yellowbot scraper it will get you all the information requested. ie. City, niche, and add them all to a spreadsheet for you. You can do it yourself and save tons of time.
