    Hello.

    For the last few months, I managed to build a YellowPage like database which contains more than 10 millions of US local business. Yes, more than 10 millions records. All the records are well verified and contain business of all industries, like store, salon, car repair, contractor, health, etc.

    I can easily build a Yellow Page site, but it is not the way I want to go since it is too slow to get PPC success.

    As near 40% of the business in my database contain websites and I can easily scrape their emails in their sites, I am planning to sell products to those business owners through mass mailing, or by contact form submission.

    My problem is: I don't have idea on what product or service I can sell to those local business owners. Do you have any idea for me?

    Or do you have any suggestion for me to make some money with my database?

    Sorry for my English as English is obviously not my native language.

    Not yet, but it's really easy for me to scrape their email addresses in their websites. It;s not a problem for me to get their email, but I am thinking if I can make money by mass mailing them.

    Why not sell them a service? anything that is common amongst every business.
    How to up their client reach or how to sell more of their best value products maybe.

    Thanks for your suggestion, but I really don;t have any idea on what to sell to them. I think any product or service that accepts affiliate would be the best since I don't have resource to create my own product to sell them.

    For generic local emails like that your response will be low as you probably know. Typically when I start working with a client that wants some benefit from my local services, I'll offer them:
    • FB posting in local groups for them.
    • Same for Craigslist.
    • Web 2.0s that laud and applaud their business.
    • Google reviews.
    • SEO on a local basis.
    What does a small business owner want?

    More people walking through the doors.

    Those things I mentioned as well as others you can think of along those lines will do that for him/her and they cost very little if you outsource it.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Just re-read what you 1st post.

    Why not offer websites and SEO, even to those with websites, then farm the work out.

    If you have a list that broad, figure out the pain points to Business' around the world. I already gave you 2 major points. Customers and repeat sales, kind of the life blood of revenue.

    I would say PM me, but I'm still to fresh on this site to be offering advice especially when the answers are on this site, if you dare to keep reading.
