We need a program that will collect names, numbers, emails, cities, provinces/states and website links from each of our competitors websites for all current advertisers listed on these websites. We then need the ability to cross reference them to show what advertisers share the same contact info (Email and/or phone) and what sites they advertise on.
We then need to be able to check off the contacts that we have previously contacted so that when the system spiders the sites every 14 days we can tell who we have previously contacted from the list of advertisers and just display a list of “New Contacts” for our sales agents.
Project details & objectives
- Spider 5 competitor’s websites to collect contact information of advertisers (Escort page ads – not banner advertiser’s just escorts advertising photos and contact information).
- Place this information into a database (Flat file, comma separated or MySQL – any would be acceptable for this project).
-Our sales agents will use this information to contact the advertisers who are currently advertising on these sites that have not been previously contacted by us.
-We need a way to check off the advertisers who have been contacted already to prevent duplicate contacts being made.
The output of the script should have
-A list of new advertisers found
-The ability to display all advertisers found
Collecting ad information data from five escort websites
-PM Me for exact site URL's as we do not wish to post this information publicly. They are standard escort photo directories with page advertisments in HTML. You can google "vancouver escorts" on [url removed, login to view] and see a number of these "type" of sites that contain escorts ads with photos and contact information for examples.
Data required to collect from each advertiser found is as follows
-Name of advertiser
-Phone Number (with area code)
-City and State/Province
-Sorting data to remove duplicate entries
-Sorting data to show previously contacted advertisers
-Ability to "Mark" each client when contacted and store this "Marked" info to prevent duplicate contacts so the next time the script is run it can show the "New Contacts Found".
