This guide will show you step by step how to leave an SMS campaign working.

1.- You will grab data from different networks.
2.- We will select the most proper leads that fits on our super targeted campaign.

We first need to understand that the way we are doing this on a purpose that wont be like the cold calls. The action will be different and you might be persistent to get CTR or calls.

We won’t be getting into detail on the methods which will be found inside our membership. Right now it is the technical part.

Let’s start doing scrapers, you will have to clear your data in order to work better, so make sure you rename your database.db file located inside /LinkGrow folder when unzipping anywhere.

Renaming will help you keeping a record of all your database. So you can save those and later paste again on project and rename campaign_name.db to database.db.

Follow this steps to get the leads from the Keyword you want. Remember the Keyword can be also with locations or other experiments.

Here you will get great results:

You might get phones without complete information, please eliminate those since they probably won’t work. And if you see strange formats, also reconsider verifying the country the person is and also visit the URL to manually see who you are going to talk to.

You need to go to Twilio and make a serious of Steps:

1.- Open account (of course).
2.- Get a number.
3.- Verify your account with payment details.
4.- Authorize sending to other countries.

TWILIO PART

You now have completed the configuration part. Let’s proceed to create a campaign to start sending SMS right away.

REMEMBER AGAIN… STRATEGY IS KEY.

Finally your campaign will created.

IMPORTANT!!
If your Twilio account and Phone is not verified, the system will crash and you will need to rename database.db to any other number to reopen and fix. We will add a workaround on that from the system

Getting Airbnb property owners contact data for business
Category: Airbnb,Data Extraction,Link & Grow,Networks,Tutorial Author: dreadpixel Date: 7 months ago Comments: 0

Airbnb has been affected by the pandemic, many owners have stopped getting customers and visitors and this might be a great opportunity for many real estate agents or investors. That’s a fact, from every crisis, many big corporations have born along with history.

Having contact data such as Listing URL, Email, Phone and Description from property owners or people listing their homes is something ideal for doing some cold calling or approach to them for different kind of offers.

Here you have an example on how you can get the data that I offer you for testing:

The download link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZSofev6pWMrXsiByK_ISJn8dn2NL-i01gUL2UtB7ZXk

But like an old proverb says ” if you give a man a fish he is hungry again in an hour. If you teach him to catch a fish you do him a good turn.” So I am going to teach you how to get this data:

1.- Identify the important keywords to scan. If you are looking for houses just remain with that keyword plus other details like: 2 floors house, entire house, house + 2 floors, house + bedroom, etc. Try thinking all alternations to get plenty of data.
NOTE: they wont repeat since if it is the same URL it wont get stored in the database.

2.- Identify the locations for them, for example: New York + United States. Make sure to add the country since if you search only for New York, remember there are streets in other countries named after New York.

3.- Now, mix the keyword and the places such as:
2 floors house + New York + United States
entire house + New York + United States
house + 2 floors + New York + United States
house + bedroom + New York + United States

4.- Finally, make sure to set a custom domain and type:
airbnb.com/rooms
Then just click RUN and see the magic happen 🙂


Scrape business Emails and Phones from LinkedIn Profiles
Category: Data Extraction,Link & Grow,LinkedIn,Tutorial Author: dreadpixel Date: 10 months ago Comments: 0

Many have requested about getting business emails instead of free email patterns such as @gmail.com, @hotmail.co.uk, @yahoo.com, etc. So they want emails from business domains like alan.tu@turingtech.com or such, where you dont have all those anti-SPAM filters, or where you can get more information about that lead visiting their business domain.

This is totally doable using Google commands and booleans properly, we will cover step by step how to do this in this video:

So, remember you have to use the:
custom_pattern option in order to activate option contact_patterns on the Config tab.

This is the boolean as you have to put it:
site:linkedin.com/in + “Email me at:” OR “Email me” OR “Send me an email” OR “Contact me at”

So the important thing here is that you know you will be adding Keywords on the Leads tab, so you can input line by line several keyword combinations that will combine with the contact_patterns option, which if you put a comma and input another pattern, you will be multiplying all search x2. And if you input a third pattern separated by a comma, you will be multiplying by 3x. This means you will find more patterns using Google search commands.

You can do the experiment adding this instead of the first contact pattern that uses OR boolean:
site:linkedin.com/in + “Email me at:”, site:linkedin.com/in + “Email me”, site:linkedin.com/in + “Send me an email”, site:linkedin.com/in + “Contact me at”

This means you are setting Four(4) different searches, which if you input 4 Keywords on your leads tab, you will create 8 different combinations that will result in a possible 16 x 500 = 8,000 possible leads.

Go ahead an experiment using ScraperAPI, you will get about 80 requests on that experiment if you have google_deepness = 5, but don’t worry, ScraperAPI offers you 5,000 free requests.
