I'm wondering if there is a free or very low cost resource online that would provide me with a list of businesses in that particular city (lets say Los Angeles) where I could get the data about that business and possibly even search by particular industry (lets say mechanics in Los Angeles).
So ideally I would like as much info about the business as possible such as:
1. Owner or CEO Name
2. Number of Employee Ranch (1-5, 6-25, Etc.)
3. Phone Number
4. Address (City at the very least)
5. Type of Business
Not that much really. I don't even need sales although it would be nice.
I know of a few different updated software memberships you can buy each year but it's $1,500 per year per city. So as you can see this gets expensive. I don't need as much info that is provided on this companies product so I really don't need it that extensive. All I need really is the name of the business, the type of business, the phone number and the owners or CEO name.
After I get started and rolling on this venture I wouldn't mind buying the membership for $1,500 per year per city as that extra info they provide would likely come in handy.
Or would you just hire your telemarketer to prospect using the YellowPages online or other business listings? I guess it comes down to which is the most detailed free business listing website then. I would need it for the USA and CANADA. Anyone have any ideas?
