    Hi,

    I'm looking for UK Businesses Database for reasonable price. I google it and the cheapest are starting from 199.
    I would be happy to start with London and East Sussex businesses.

    If you know about good one, please let me know.

    or If you are looking for the same thing, mabe we could share the cost

    Thanks a lot
    Regards

    Do you mean you're looking to join a database of UK businesses or you would like a database developing by someone in the UK? I'm a bit confused - sorry

    I would say he is looking for a database of business contact details (i.e..phone, email address, postal address).

    for say marketing purposes...some would call it a different name though..

    Something like what a local business directory would hold.

    Oh, is it not possible to go to the local library/town hall and recieve what he's looking for but get it for free? Or do the only store local information? Surely they'd be able to contact for national information on request?

    Hello Dean and Driver,

    excuse me for not being more specific. Driver is right, I need database of businesses with Name, phone, email address, postal address and ideally description. Why? We build business directory website and we wish to add those data to it... so the library or yellow pages are not the best option, since it would take months to fill up.

    Hope it's more clear now
    Thanks for any ideas.
    Regards
    H.

    Where businesses are concerned, you'd be better off receiving permission from each company to add them to your directory. You'd also gain their respect for asking them in the first place.

    There's alot of guides and information on the best ways to setup and manage business directories. Google is your friend there.

    Thank you for your reply brym,

    I understand what you are saying, but my experience is that people/companies don't reply to those requests most of the time.

    Will try to find the right way around.
    Thanks a lot

    Provide them with an incentive. They might be more inclined to accept your offer then. Say, for example, you create a private B2B forum where the listed businesses can conduct B2B away from the public.

    Hi again,

    the idea is to have simple listing as a core, when they take care of it they could add more information. The forum is very nice idea too!
    Thanks a lot!

    Are you working on something similar? Maybe we could brainstorm over the email!?

    Regards
