I came across this online scraping tool a few months ago but to be honest I haven’t had a chance to properly trial it out. It definately seems worth exploring – imagine being able to scrape LinkedIn or another online database for names along with employer name, job title and contact details and having it all automatically exported into Excel (formatted) in just a matter of minutes. What a time saver!

Check out their YouTube video ‘Needlebase‘ for a quick tutorial.

**UPDATE: When I first saw this it was in Beta but it looks like they’ve now gone live. You can still try it out with a free account/trial but if you want to use it commercially you’ll need to pay.

If you’ve tried Needlebase or something simliar before, please share it in the comments below.
