Hi everyone

I'm currently in the process of setting up a website directory for recreational clubs... hobby, social, sports etc., etc. and I am looking into the advertising side of the business...

Does anybody know if there is software or online services available to automatically identify potential advertisers? For example my local golf club has a Pro golfer who I am sure would like to find new students, so my service would be ideal for him.

Ideally, this service would go off and thrawl the web, return a list of potential advertisers, that I could then call to introduce the service.

Any advice would be great!

Some advertising networks have their membership categorized for such searches, but I haven't come across anything automated that goes out on the web in general.

I've personally always looked at who was paying for the yellow pages and then saw if they had a website or advertised it then approached them with an understanding of where they and go from there.
