Selling scripts/bots/macros ?

12 replies
Hi all,

I am doing scripts in JavaScript and iMacros. iMacros is FireFox addon (supported for IE, Chrome) and JavaScript is used to enhance iMacros code.

So far I've made great number of scripts that do all kinds of jobs. Scraping, filling, submitting forms on websites... even getting offers. I would like to offer my services here too. Also offer some of the projects that I've made.

The advantage of what I do is you don't have to pay $$$$ to get a working software to mine some data. You can pay $$ to $$$ and get the simple (yet effective) tool.

Would people here be interested in such software?

    Regards

    Thanks for the reply.

    Well let's say you want to gather list of dentists from Yellow Pages.

    Dentists in Los Angeles, California with Reviews & Ratings - YP.com

    I can make a macro/script (or as I call it a tool) that will go over this list and scrape the data. Then it would save data in .csv file or .txt . Depends what you want. I can make a tool that is more customized to match clients request.

    Or let's say you have a website where offers are being posted at a random time in a day. The offer is there for couple of seconds/minutes until someone takes it. I can make a script that would refresh the offers page and get that offer for you.

    Another good thing about the tools I make is social media automation. I can make a tool that posts on multiple pages, gets profile links/names from fan page(s), gets peoples names and profiles from groups etc.

    And why not make a tool that would gather usernames of someone's Twitter profile? Or search for SEO experts on LinkedIn and save their contact data into a file?

    In short I can make every type of tool that one marketer would want.

    Yes, but I think you would need to embed the product, PM me if your interested in a different approach to selling the product.

      Now that you've written your movie, it's time to talk about sales.
      Thanks but I am not making a movie. I do automation and make scripts/bots/macros. You can find out more with googling macros or iMacros.

    I create similar scripts but using php and mysql. Is there an advantage in using imacro's?

    Maybe less time in creating code. iMacros has a list of commands that are handy and easy to use. So it takes less time to develop a script.

    I haven't worked with PHP so I can't tell for sure.

    I also do most of my scraping scripts in PHP (some in c#) , however I can see the advantages of running something in the browser. Just installed iMacros ... looks interesting. Thanks!

    downside is that you can't schedule the script and keep updating. You need to have your browser open at all times. Don't think there isn't anything you can't do with good old curl! well captchas can be a bit of a pain but imacros can't solve that problem either.

    But then correct me if I am wrong.

    The future is bright... I love the power of JavaScript. You can implement your own functionality...
    play with blobs and such

    HTML Code:
    <div id="display"></div>
    <script>
    Image.prototype.load = function(url){
            var img = this;
            var xmlHTTP = new XMLHttpRequest();
            xmlHTTP.open('GET', url,true);
            xmlHTTP.responseType = 'arraybuffer';
            xmlHTTP.onload = function(e) {
                //document.getElementById("bytes").innerHTML = this.response.byteLength;
                var blob = new Blob([this.response]);
                img.src = window.URL.createObjectURL(blob);
            };  
            xmlHTTP.send();
        };
        
    var img = new Image();
    img.load("someimage.jpg");
    document.getElementById("display").appendChild(img);
    </script>
