Looking to do a b2b email campaign and am trying to think of good ways to get mass local emails.
Does anyone have experience with an online yellow pages scraper (specifically for the Australian version)? What software works well, etc..?
Or any other ways to get lots of local business emails in one big list?
Buying the list gives you access to more information like the size of the business, number of staff, names of the owner and manager etc
You can also be specific, for example you could ask for a list of 100 offices in Melbourne with 5-10 employees
But if you literally just want business names go with the scraper i guess
Also you can specify the exact person within the business you want to reach, instead of just using the general contact email (eg accounts manager)
Like you would get firstname.lastname@example.org instead of just email@example.com
1) For the purposes of this Act, an electronic message is a message sent:
(i) an internet carriage service; or
(ii) any other listed carriage service; and
(b) to an electronic address in connection with:
(i) an email account; or
(ii) an instant messaging account; or
(iii) a telephone account; or
(iv) a similar account.
I believe carriage service is a phone line so I would assume spam faxes also breach the act.
The letter would be unsolicited mail which is why you see those signs on mailboxes, I am not sure if there is any law against those or if it's common courtesy. I would assume there is rules for flyers and brochures.
(5) If a message is sent by way of a voice call made using a standard telephone service, the message is not an electronic message for the purposes of this Act.
So a phone call isn't included, but then you'd probably have to look at the do not call register if you want to spam their phone too.
Really why not do business like regular people and not spam poor helpless small businesses with your shitty emails?
