LeadFerret Curates a Directory of Curated Web Companies

According to Netcraft, as of January 2014 there were over 861 million active websites.  The sheer volume of available contact on the internet is staggering.  Websites like Google and Bing make it easier to wade through all of the noise and find specific content, but the job is still a tedious one.  Enter digital curation.  Curated Web Companies are companies that curate information from the web as a core part of their business.  In addition to providing one location for access to information from a multitude of different sources, curated web companies also tend to vet the sources’ legitimacy, to a degree, allowing the consumer to trust the information, either as accurate, or as safe.  Curated content is almost making its way into the eCommerce arena, most notable with Zappos’ new site, Glance, a social commerce site that acts similar to Pinterest, only for purchasable fashion products, allowing consumers to curate their own personal fashion collection, all parts of which can be purchased through Zappos with ease.  This level of integration opens the doors to a whole new type of profitability for the curated content market, ensuring future growth for the industry.

Digital curation is a booming industry, especially as print media falls out of favor.  While in its infancy, it’s projected to continue growing as more and more people turn to curation as their primary source of content.  As with any quickly growing industry, curated content companies are ripe targets for a vast number of different types of marketing campaigns, with the money to spend on all aspects of their business needs.  While this directory is a good target for people looking specifically at curated media companies, it is also an excellent resource for anyone looking to expand their client roster in a quickly growing field.  LeadFerret’s directory of contacts within Curated Web Companies is an advantageous place to start many different types of marketing campaigns, as LeadFerret has curated a directory of contacts with complete information, including email addresses, social media links and more, making it easier to develop and implement targeted marketing campaigns.

LeadFerret Releases Directory of Mobile Wireless Companies

In 1964, the first pilot episode of Stark Trek: The Original Series began filming.  In the episode, Gene Roddenberry had written in a futuristic device that would allow two people to speak to each other through a small box they held in their hands.  This device, a Communicator, inspired a man named Dr. Marin Cooper, to, years later, invent the first handheld mobile phone.  Did Roddenberry know, 50 years ago, that he would inspire a device that has essentially changed the world?  While it’s doubtful he understood how truly reliant people in first world countries would become on mobile phones, he was a genius in his own right.

LeadFerret, the world’s first 100% free business to business database with complete information including e-mail addresses, announced today the release of a specialized directory of Mobile-Wireless Companies, comprised of companies involved in mobile services and devices – cell phones – cell phone service providers like Sprint, At&T, and everyone that supports these networks and provides related devices. This directory allows users to search through and see full contact information for specific records of people employed by Mobile Wireless Companies, in addition to the millions of records outside that directory.

While it’s still possible to encounter a person who doesn’t own a television or have a Facebook account, making the acquaintance of someone without a cellular phone (outside of an Amish community, that is), is rare indeed.  The technology has changed the way people live and work.  It has required modifications to plotlines in movies.  It has allowed for faster response time in emergencies, with people being able to call for help without first seeking out a phone.  Even something as simple as getting help for a flat tire has become more efficient.  The mobile-wireless industry is powerhouse, both in technological advances and in technology marketshare.  Few new techs are explored without investigating how they could be applied to mobile phones.  From CEOs to CSRs, LeadFerret’s directory of contacts within Mobile-Wireless companies allows easy access to whatever type of marketing campaign a company wants to run within the industry.  New and existing LeadFerret users will be able to make the most of this directory, by having access to the most valuable prospects, with complete information, including email addresses, social media links and more, making it easier to develop marketing campaigns.

LeadFerret Releases Directory of Clean Technology Companies

According to Investopedia, Cleantech is”[a] shortened form of ‘clean technologies’, a term used to describe an investment philosophy used by investors seeking to profit from environmentally friendly companies. Cleantech firms seek to increase performance, productivity and efficiency by minimizing negative effects on the environment.” While there is no standard definition for Cleantech, or Clean Technology, it is generally used to refer to technology that increases performance or efficiency while reducing the pollution or waste typically associated with industrial operations. Cleantech is typically synonymous with renewable energy. From biofuels to solar and wind energy, the renewable energy sector of Cleantech is the largest and most recognizable. The industry definition is not designed exclusively around the end product, though, but also in regard to the means by which production was achieved. Other Cleantech industry categories include (but are not limited to) Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, Agriculture and Nutrition, Air Quality, Consumer Products, Enabling Technologies and Services, Energy Generation, Storage, and Infrastructure, Environmental Information Technology, Manufacturing/Industrial Technologies, Materials Recovering and Recycling, Transportation and Logistics, and Waste Treatment, Water Purification and Management.

According to the National Law Review, “As of mid-year 2014, there have been six clean tech/renewables IPOs, while there were seven in all of 2013… If the first half of this year is any indication, 2014 should prove to be a strong year for clean-tech and renewable energy companies opting to pursue the IPO path.” Since its inception, Cleantech has been a big focus of venture capital, making a directory of Cleantech companies an excellent starting point for marketing campaigns directed not only on green technology companies, but companies who are on the upswing, and ripe for being marketed to. LeadFerret’s directory includes complete contact information, including email addresses for all records and social media links for a large number of records, allowing for easier electronic marketing campaigns, a green alternative to the paper mailings of yesteryear.

LeadFerret Releases Directory of Supermarket Companies

In 1916 a man named Clarence Saunders opened a store he named “Piggly Wiggly” in Memphis, Tennessee.  While the full history is slightly more complex, when traced back it’s clear that on that day, the supermarket was born.  Prior to the Piggly Wiggly, customers would make a variety of different stops at specialized shops to pick up what they needed.  Uncle John’s All-Purpose Extra Strength Bathroom Reader tells an excellent history of the supermarket:  “As chain stores became more powerful, both the media and independent grocers began campaigns against them. Even Time magazine referred to them as ‘cheapies’, assuring the American public that these giant disgraces were only due to bad times and would disappear soon. Independent grocers launched campaigns to boycott supermarkets because they used ‘unfair’ methods to overcome their competition-such as staying open at night and selling items at or near cost. But customers were thrilled to be paying significantly less for food and continued to patronize them. In New Jersey a law making it illegal to sell food at or below cost was passed… and then quickly withdrawn when consumers raged that it was making them pay more for no good reason.”  These days, supermarkets are ubiquitous and unquestioned by the modern consumer.

LeadFerret Releases Directory of Publicly Traded Companies

Public companies are companies whose stock is traded by the public on an exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ, as well as AMEX, OTC BB, ASX, BSE, TORONTO, LSE, and OTC PK. While not all large, successful companies are publically traded, those that are have higher standards, both officially and unofficially, to which they must adhere.  Public companies must adhere to the rules of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which protects their shareholders.  Additionally, they tend to abide to higher standards in general because they have a public reputation to uphold in deference to stock maintaining stock prices.

When looking at how to spend a marketing budget, it’s important to focus on companies that tend to have more money, spend more money, and are companies that likely have staying power.  Publically traded companies tend to be a good bet in these regards.  Additionally, if one is looking for companies to target in their next job search, a directory of publically traded companies would give a good list of companies that are likely more stable places to work, because they are publically traded and that lends to a higher level of staying power.

LeadFerret Unveils a Directory of PHP Experts

“I’ve never thought of PHP as more than a simple tool to solve problems.” This was Tweeted out by Rasmus Lerdorf, the author of the first version of the PHP web programming language. Similar to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, PHP is a language used to write instructions for a webserver. With very few requirements, it is installed on top of web server software and inserted inside the HTML that makes up a website. Like HTML, the code written in PHP is processed on the fly instead of needing to be compiled before it gets used. PHP is invaluable for dynamic website management, allowing one to take a use information from web based forms, track users, create and run threaded discussions (usually in forum form), as well as many other extremely valuable uses. According to Web Technology Surveys, “PHP is used by 82.2% of all the websites whose server-side programming language we know.” Popular sites using PHP include the social media titans Facebook and Twitter, as well as more useful sites such as Wikipedia and WordPress. Since PHP is an open source program, another quote by Lerdorf makes sense: “I did not develop the PHP we know today. Dozens, if not hundreds of people, developed PHP. I was simply the first developer.”

Considering how prevalent PHP is, it only makes sense to compile a list of professionals who know how to use it, many of who have contributed to the language itself, due to its open source nature. LeadFerret–the world’s first 100% free business to business database with complete information including e-mail addresses–announced today the release of a specialized directory of Experts in PHP.

LeadFerret Introduces a Directory of SOA Experts

SOA, also known as service-oriented architecture, is a software design and software architecture design pattern based on distinct pieces of software providing application functionality as services to other applications. SOA defines how two programs interact with each other to enable one entity to perform a unit of work on behalf of the other entity. The area of service oriented computing is large and multifaceted. Expertise in this field requires skill, hard work, and experience. It is really not possible to understand every aspect of service oriented architecture perfectly, so all one can do is specialize on certain parts of it, while maintaining an understanding of the overall picture. The men and women in this database have worked toward doing just that.
