Trying to Find a Market

Following up on a comment from Dick Hoppe, I expanded upon the data compilation I wrote about earlier concerning the Manatee County 2010 Tax Certificate Auction. Now I’m pulling in data from three additional pages and have it all tidily summarized in the resulting comma-delimited CSV file. I made a short demo CSV file with three of the entries so people could pull it into a spreadsheet and see how it works. I made a page to explain what I had and why an investor ought to want to have it here, and that includes PayPal links for people to pick either the MS-DOS/Windows or the Unix/Mac OS X version.

My biggest problem is there is a small market for this, and I don’t really have a good way to make them aware that there is an alternative to them doing all their information look-ups manually themselves. I tried making a posting to Craigslist, but all the responses I’ve gotten so far are spam.

Anybody else have experience with time-limited, targeted market information compilation marketing?

    You might look at It’s for open-source software but I think you can license your products.
