Business is Booming in South America

We have a BIG update about to come out for YellaBot – vsn 3.0.2.0 with the update comes fixes to France, Australia and South Africa as well as adding email scraping functionality back into YP.com (a much asked for feature).

If you want to play around with some different GEO locations, get ready to dive into the deep south…. South America, that is!

South America, It’s About Time You Give Us Some Love…

We just added the ability to harvest business leads from all of South America, which has been completely unsupported until now by ALL YP Scrapers.

With the update comes coverage of Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru and The Dominican Republic!

In each country you’ll have the ability to scrape the following data:

  • Business Name
  • Full Address
  • Phone Number
  • Street Address
  • City/Suburb
  • Country
  • Map Coordinates
  • User Rating
  • Website Address
  • Business Description
  • Full Keyword Scraping of 6 Categories or Keywords

Insiders Scoop: I have a couple friends in the Nutraceutical & Health supplement business (David & Gary from MarketHealth.com) and they are making a ton of cash by opening up their business to Brazil.

These guys are doing close to $150-Million per year in nutra product sales (that’s $500,000/day, yeah, I know, unfathomable). They said the Brazilian Market is so good that they literally moved down there for awhile to expand their business.

They say the Brazilian market is booming and I believe them!

Don’t think the only money to be made is in the USA, UK, Australia, Canada and South America. You don’t have to speak English to spend money or make money 🙂

There is a lot more money out there and a lot more leads to be scraped, so…

…get ready to have some fun!

Update coming soon…

Business Leads – What Are People Really Doing With Their Data?

As a leader in Web Scraping Software business Since 2009, and with thousands of customers using our software, we’ve come to learn a few things about our customers and what they do with our software.

The main reason for our studies have been to better understand our customers’ needs so we can provide better services and solutions to help extend value to our users.

In the last few months, we’ve been asking our users what they do with our Yellow Pages Scraping software and here’s what we found:

We have two primary versions of our software….

YellaBot PRO & YellaBot GOLD

YellaBot PRO is our main software while YellaBot GOLD is a special version intended for business professionals who want to ramp up their scraping to the next level by automating many of the features PRO users do manually.

Here are the results of our research for each of our software versions:

YellaBot PRO

As you can see, our customers have five primary uses for Yellow Pages and Business Directory data.

  • Build Sites & Online Business Directories – 29% of users
  • Collecting Business Phone Numbers for Cold Calling22% of users
  • Collecting Email Addresses for Email Marketing – 19% of users
  • Collecting Mailing Addresses for Direct Mail Campaigns – 17% of users
  • Offering Professional Scraping Services for Businesses – 11% of users
  • *Other – 1% of users

*Other = URL Scraping, Any purpose not listed above

YellaBot GOLD

Next, we researched our GOLD users to find what they’re up to.

  • Build Sites & Online Business Directories – 40% of users
  • Collecting Business Phone Numbers for Cold Calling33% of users
  • Collecting Email Addresses for Email Marketing – 9% of users
  • Collecting Mailing Addresses for Direct Mail Campaigns – 7% of users
  • Offering Professional Scraping Services for Businesses – 11% of users
  • *Other – 1% of users

What’s interesting is the noticeable differences between what PRO users and GOLD users are doing with their data.

For some reason, more site builders, directory builders and cold callers choose to scale their scraping efforts vs email marketers, direct mail marketers and professional scraping service providers.

For now, I’ll leave it to you to interpret the results of the research.

Sometimes following the trends can clue us in to what’s working better than what we may be doing currently.

Moving Forward – What’s next?

Here at YellaBot.com, we will continue to find out more by asking more questions and continuing to interact with our customers. As we discover new information, we will pass it on to you.

Until next time, take care.
