I work in a surveyor firm as a salesperson in hong kong. I need to find clients on a daily basis, but my boss company has virtually zero support on lead generation.
I decide to build an excel spreadsheet , based on this Trade Development Council , TDC link : [login to view URL]
If you type in "limited" in search engine of company name in the website, 120929 companies data are available as at yesterday 16/6/2018 across 2016 pages using 60 results per page. one problem is: both the fax and the telephone numbers are stored in a picture in jpeg image. I advise OCR is used to convert the two set of numbers to text .
Second problem is: downloading the first 12 pages is smooth. downloading the 13th pages is blocked by the website.
Third problem: the email address are only found +7000 TDC page reference suppliers and individual companies URLs
Fourth problem(optional): some companies name without "limited" , how to identify them in the search engine?
Time limit: One-week time is expected to finish the project. 23 June 2018 is deadline. please let me know if you need longer period of time to complete the data mining.
My budget is US $80, awarded to project winner.$19 on NDA.
Please let me know if you have any question, thanks.
