So I tried looking on my cities website and yes I was able to find the info I needed but I was only able to find NEW businesses that just listed in the past year or so. (Great resource that I will continue to use for marketing to new businesses)
That's not what I wanted... I wanted to be able to type in the business name and get the owners name in return. So did a search on infousa and they wanted $99 for 50 business listings...ummm no thank you!
Next I went to infofree and they wanted like $100 to get started so that was out...don't understand why they call it info:FREE: if it's not free.
Next I checked salesgenie and they are offering a free account for 3 days and 150 free leads... GREAT! So I signed up and started looking for the businesses that I needed owner info for, but what I found was the ability to search unlimited businesses for free that included business name, address, and business owners name.
That was exactly what I needed for my direct mail marketing
So if you need owner names sign up for salesgenie and go to town getting the info you need for FREE!!
I hope this helps someone as much as it has helped me
