    Anyone can point me in the right direction so I can scrape websites for things like company name, email, phone number, address. I know I can pay someone 50 bucks or whatever to do on Odesk but I'm here to save some coin.

    Any awesome and easy to use software out there?

    Love to be able to scrape Yell at will...

    I understand that you want to find as many addresses and business in as little time as possible. Yet this is offline marketing: a niche where you actually take your time to find good customers, research them, etc. This way you can provide them the best service. The whole bulk-mailing and such doesn't give the same results as sending out a good report via e-mail or mail. Try to take your time for a business to research a lot of it, and then send an e-mail, and you'll see your CTR will be alot higher, you'll close more deals percentagewise, etc.

    Scrapping is still necessary to build a database
