Often, you won't find small businesses on LinkedIn.
It'll be even harder if you're targeting specific locations.
This is where applications like Google Maps and TripAdvisor become handy.
With Google Maps, you can use the Find local companies from Google Maps workflow.
This search is particularly good as it mimics a regular Google Maps Search (e.g: restaurants in Paris).
You can also restrict the search per proximity if you specify a detailed address in the "Inputs" section.
For example, you can map all the restaurants in Paris, easily, by building a search on Google Sheets based on specific Zip Codes. Your input would look like this:
Please be aware that this search does not display emails, only website information and phone numbers.
How to Extract Information from TripAdvisor Using Captain Data
You can also use TripAdvisor in order to find and qualify leads, using the Search and enrich TripAdvisor template.
Furthermore, you will be able to obtain email, phone, and website information 🎉
You'll be able to retrieve the restaurant's name, address, rating, etc. from both Google Maps and TripAdvisor. However, TripAdvisor's data is much more qualitative since it includes the restaurant's price range, cuisines, and whether they work with Deliveroo, Uber Eats, etc.
Indeed, in the realm of hospitality and dining, TripAdvisor stands out as a treasure trove of information, offering vast amounts of data and insights on restaurants worldwide. Extracting this data can significantly enhance your outreach campaigns, allowing for personalization that can truly resonate with your target audience. Here's a guide, inspired by a tutorial from Captain Data, on how to automate the extraction of restaurant information from TripAdvisor for your marketing needs.
The Value of TripAdvisor Data
TripAdvisor provides detailed information on restaurants, including addresses, phone numbers, websites, ratings, the number of reviews, email addresses, price ranges, and more. Such data is invaluable for personalizing outreach campaigns, allowing businesses to target specific segments with tailored messages.
Extracting Data with Captain Data
Captain Data automates the extraction of detailed information from TripAdvisor, not just for a single restaurant but across any number of listings. This process involves running a Captain Data job to search for and extract comprehensive details about restaurants in any given location, such as New York City.
Step-by-Step Guide to Extract TripAdvisor Data
1. Identify Your Target: Start with a specific search on TripAdvisor, focusing on your area of interest, like the best restaurants in New York City.
2. Utilize Captain Data's Workflow: Navigate to Captain Data and select the "Search and Enrich TripAdvisor Pages" workflow. This tool is designed to search and extract profile information from TripAdvisor listings.
3. Set Up Your Job:
- Input: Use the TripAdvisor search URL. Keep in mind that TripAdvisor’s URL does not change with filters applied via the website interface. To circumvent this, you can craft your search through Google, ensuring you capture the desired criteria in your search.
- Customize Your Search: Adjust the search parameters according to your needs, such as setting the number of results you wish to extract.
- Launch: With the URL and parameters set, launch the job on Captain Data.
4. Review and Use Your Data: Once the job is complete, you’ll have access to a dataset that includes restaurant categories, cuisine types, contact information, average grades, number of reviews, rankings, price ranges, awards won, and websites. This data is crucial for segmenting your audience and personalizing your outreach campaigns effectively.
Leveraging Your Extracted Data
With the information gathered, you can:
- Personalize Your Campaigns: Use specific details like cuisine type, price range, or awards won to tailor your outreach messages.
- Segment Your Audience: Divide the extracted data into different campaigns based on various criteria, ensuring that your messaging is relevant to each segment.
