    Hello!

    I am desperate, I wanted to build a list of leads by their social media accounts. I have here the basic information, the names and email address. I want a software (maybe they call it a crawler) that could generate the Social Media Accounts such as facebook, twitter, linkedin, instagram etc. by just entering the names or email addresses IN BULK. Does this sound possible? I need your suggestions!

    Thank you!

    For every website you need a custom scraper! There are plenty of cheap bot makers here on BHW.

    Whats your goal? Theres a lot of moving parts for managing social profiles, most of which arent cheap. Dedicated private ips, for example, cost anywhere from $.75 to $2.50 per ip, which youd be beeeest served using for a single profile. You can get away withbmultiples, but the safe bet is one ip per one account.

    I am looking for some kind of a data mining/ web crawler (whatever they say it is :D) tool. The one that could generate the social media accounts of my prospect clients. I have here the list, name, email addresses etc. I want a tool that if ever I enter this list in bulk, it would generate all of their social media accounts. I hope you could help me. Thank you!

    I have a software to do that for Instagram and Twitter. It's currently in approval process in the Marketplace. You can check my signature if you are in a hurry :)

    For now, it's only those two services. I have just recently finished the Twitter Scraper. I don't have any plans to make a scraper for other networks, for now. Maybe in the future, I will, but no guarantees.

    So you are or aren't going to be spamming with them?

    It's whatev, I'm just trying to understand your goal better to maybe help offer better advice.

    It seems odd that you would have a 'bulk' list of clients that want you to create social profiles, that you would need to scrape info from. Is this the set up for a 'mange your social profile' type fiverr gig?

    If it's legit creation of social profiles meant to be passed on to a client for management later, there's probably some less-grey area type approaches like facebooks graph api, as opposed to funky 'bots'. I get you want a bot for control, but if you have a specific goal in mind, you could probably get a script custom-coded that would be very straight forward, and not cost too much.

    So sad to hear that. But if ever you have plans on adding other networks please let me know. I've already searched the deepest corners of the web to look for that software but to no avail.

    The main goal is to find the social media profiles of the prospect clients for the marketing purposes. I won't create their social media profiles but rather "find" their social media profiles because the company where I am working spends a lot in manpower for the research purposes. They wanted to search for software that could help them in this kind of work.

    Really? I actually don't have any idea about the pricing of that kind of software. I also asked my boss if he is willing to pay and he said yes. I just hope I could find the perfect software for them.

    Ah, that makes sense.

    It's hard to find social profiles by email, since it's hit or miss which one is public (if any). For businesses, I'd imagine you'd have more luck, since they'd want to make it view-able.

    I've had great success in social scraping approaches for targeting and qualifying people, but it's an effort which involves a lot of constant adjustment. You need lots of dummy profiles to scrape with (in most cases), and lots of IP addresses to pair to dummy accounts. That's after you've actually found the profiles of course.

    Good luck.

    I agree with you. In our case, yes luckily our target clients are mostly companies. And if I were to decide I would rather find these social media accounts manually. I already spent almost 3 days researching for this software :(. Thanks for the tips though.
