When you’re prospecting, the first thing you do is look for a valid email. But the hard part is trying to find the right
one! It can be frustrating when you spend hours upon hours at a time trying to look for a person’s email only for it to bounce back. Instead of spending hours at a time hunting down emails online, you can utilize various tools that will cut down the time spent on searching. Plus, these tools will find the right
email address! Using these tools make connecting with someone a lot easier than by having to go on LinkedIn for an informal introduction.
Here are a few email finding tools you’ll want to start using:
Formally known as “Email Hunter,” is a handy Chrome extension that uses the email naming convention of business to figure out the right address for a person that works there. So if a person’s email address using the first initial and last time then the company’s name as the email address, it’s pretty easy to figure out the correct address if you know the first and last name. Hunter only finds work-related email address and gives you 150 searches a month free of charge. Hunter uses the most recent employer based on a person’s LinkedIn page, so if they don’t work there anymore, the email won’t work.
Chrome is great at having tons of useful extension and Prophet is another great one to use, too! The extension will search the Internet for any contact information in addition to other sites the person may be on. If it can’t find any email addresses linked to the person you’re searching for, it’ll take some guesses of the email based on where they work. It’ll use the most recent work-related information on LinkedIn if they have an account. But if the person has any blogs or social media accounts, it’ll list all that information, too!
Yet another Chrome extension that’s useful for finding emails is called Lusha, which will also provide you with phone numbers, too. It’ll search the net to pick up someone’s email address and number, allowing you 10 free searches a month. You can upgrade if you need more for a small fee.
