I have relaunched my music blog and need to let promoters and publicists know so that they can send me their press releases or submit posts for the blog.
I have a mailing list of miusic PR/publicity companies but it is now long outdated. Since the music blog is dance/electronic music focused, the best way to update this list is go through the "Top 1000 DJs" section of the Resident Advisor website: [login to view URL]
This would however be a very long and laborious process for me, and I know it's possible to run a scrape instead.
The twist with this – and I don't know if it's a possible, but I'm sure a freelancer qualified in this department would be able to advise – is that a lot of the artists do not list their press/booking/agent contacts on their Resident Advisor profile page, but on their Facebook "About" page.
So the scrape would have to collect contact emails from the Resident Advisor profile page and also go from there via the Facebook link on that page to the about page on their Facebook profile and collect the emails from there.
So the scrape would have to go: RA Top 1000 > DJ profile page [collect emails] > Facebook link > About page [collect emails]
I need the results to be on a spreadsheet with names in Column A and emails in Column B. Often there will be more than one contact for each DJ. I am mainly looking for press contacts because these are the people who would normally send us press releases, but sometimes their booking agents and managers handle this instead, so I need all emails listed for each DJ.
I have attached a screenshot example of how I would like the results.

This is automated scraping in addition to manual work. I can do this for you today. I will also like to give you a sample scrape. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks Claudia
