How do Advanced Search Filters Work?

    One of Targetron’s most interesting features is its utilization of Advanced Search parameters to provide a more specific list of companies for a particular niche. Using advanced parameters, you can use filters to narrow your search results and search more precisely for businesses from different categories. 

    Before explaining the step-by-step process for using advanced parameters, we must familiarize ourselves with all the terms used.

    1. Business Name: This tool allows you to find businesses with certain words in their names within the listed business categories. 
    2. Business Status: This filter can be used to find businesses based on their status, such as Operational, Temporary Closed, and Permanently Closed Businesses. 
    3. Email: This filter allows you to select whether you want to export businesses with email addresses. You can choose either companies without email or companies with at least one email. 
    4. Preferred Contacts: This filter will allow you to choose either all contacts or you can contact only a particular position in a company, such as Decision Makers, Influencers, Procurement/Purchasing, Technical, Finance, Operations, Marketing, Sales, Maintenance, Legal and Compliance, Supply Chain/Logistics, Education/Training. 
    5. Phone: The phone filter ensures that the businesses in your lead list have phone numbers. You can use options like “At least with one” and “Without phone,” which allow you to see businesses without a phone number. You can also choose to enter a number in the field. 
    6. Website: This filter allows you to search using three different options: “With website,” “Without website“, and “Enter domain“. 
    7. Rating: It is used to export businesses according to ratings. Targetron reminded everybody that Google Maps is the source of the rating data. You can choose ratings from 2.0+ up to 4.5+ and from 1.5—to 4.0-. 
    8. Reviews: It allows you to search and find businesses based on the number of reviews on the business profile page on Google Maps. You can select a wide range of reviews, from No Reviews to 1-10, 10-100, and 100-1000. There is also a selection for 10 and more to 10,000 and more, as well as from up to 10 reviews up to 10,000 reviews. 
    9. Postal Code: A filter that allows searching with ZIP codes, but the postal code format must be determined correctly; otherwise, it won’t work. 
    10. Added From: The data is filtered according to when it was added, as Targetron regularly scans the sources from which it collects data. When Targetron finds the data, it records when the business was added to the directory.
    11. Exclude: This is where you can exclude a specific category when you are searching for a specific business. For example, if you are searching for restaurants and don’t want to include all the fast food restaurants, you can just select the fast food restaurants in the exclude filter. 
    12. Attributes: This field can be used to search for something specific or some business attributes. For example, if you are searching for a restaurant and want to ensure that it offers delivery, various payment methods, and caters to vegetarians, this filter is needed. 
    13. Physical Location: This is the field where you can select whether a business has a physical location or doesn’t have a physical location but has a service area or specific service location.
