Small business (50 or fewer emp.)

I discovered Apify less than a month ago and it's already one of the core tools in my stack. I am scraping several websites to power my lead-generation process. Without Apify, I'd have to use virtual assistants, which would be less convenient and more time-consuming. Second, it's easy and quick to get custom solutions built if needed. I got a custom solution made in less than a week.

Frequently asked questions

What is web scraping and how can it help me with market research?

If you were to do market research prices manually, you'd probably have to pay a lot of money (typically more than $15,000) for a custom industry report or collect data online yourself. Then you would need to put it into a structured database or even just an Excel spreadsheet. Web scraping does this job for you and creates datasets of structured data from the web pages that you point it to. Scraping is essential if you want to do market research at scale and it will save you an immense amount of time.

No matter whether that’s finding business leads on LinkedIn or reaching out to businesses on Google Maps, you should be aware that within current legislation, publicly available contact details are considered personal data. Personal data is protected by GDPR in the European Union and by other regulations around the world. You should not scrape personal data unless you have a legitimate reason to do so. If you're unsure whether your reason is legitimate, consult your lawyers.

I couldn’t find a scraper for my specific website. Can I build it?

Knock yourself out! Our platform was built to host and run thousands of scrapers. You can customize a universal Web Scraper or start a new one with some of our ready-made templates in Python, JavaScript, or TypeScript. You can keep the scraper to yourself or make it public by adding it to Apify Store (and even make a little cash out of it). You can also integrate your scraper with other popular data processing services such as Keboola, Airbyte, or Zapier.

I don’t need to download scraped data. Is there a web scraping API I can use instead?

Yes, there is. You can have programmatic access to any scraper on the platform via Apify's web scraping API. It is organized around RESTful HTTP endpoints and can be accessed either by using Python or Node.js clients, or manually. This API will enable you to fetch results directly from any of your datasets. Check out the Apify API reference docs for full details.

I'm not a developer. Can you build a custom lead generation scraper for me?

Sure! You can either sign up for a custom solution on our Enterprise page or, if you're searching for a more affordable solution, get an external developer to create the scraper for you via our Apify freelancer program.

I don’t need scrapers for lead generation, but I know somebody who does. Can I refer them?

Yes. Our affiliate program offers up to 50% recurring commission for its participants. You can check out the terms & conditions and sign up for Apify Affiliate here.
