How web scraping and web automation are redefining the marketing industry

Social media tracking

Gather insights on your brand and other companies from popular social media sites like Twitter, TikTok, Reddit, or Instagram to evaluate growth potential and develop new marketing strategies. Automatically extract mentions, track follows, download images or scrape comments.

Lead generation

Find potential customers and collect relevant and accurate contact information at scale. Send the data you extract directly to your CRM or other tools to kick off marketing campaigns.

Content development

Build new online services that collect a large amount of data from selected websites and synthesize it in a digestible format. Send instant notifications to users about high-value updates. Stay ahead of emerging trends and aggregate useful content at scale.

Web automation for marketing

Automate your web workflows and any other work you usually do on the web manually. Let robots do the repetitive work of following social media accounts, filling out online forms or copy-pasting data. Connect your existing tools via ready-made integrations or APIs to make the web work for you.

Price monitoring

Monitor price changes for competitors, customers, or your suppliers on any website at scale. Streamline price tracking and adjust your own pricing strategy to optimize the performance of your marketing campaigns.

Product research

Track listings, products, keywords, and sales data from different directories and platforms to see how these products and categories are performing for you and your competitors. Automatically collect data in your preferred format and use it to decide what your new marketing campaign should be and when to launch it.
