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 : http://www.hktdc.com/tc-supplier/
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 accessible TDC pages with supplier reference . logo .with double ticks.
3-day time is expected to finish the project. 21 June 2018 is deadline.
Language in english.
Total budget is US $50 is offered to project. $19 for NDA fee. remaining dollars on currency conversion / handling fee.
