A critical part of any outreach strategy is the prospect, the person you’re actually reaching out to. However, getting hold of the right decision-maker is a real challenge.
People are more protective of their email address than ever, and it’s normal for a company website to only publish generic addresses, such as firstname.lastname@example.org. Unfortunately, that kind of address will rarely get you very far.
Fortunately, there’s a solution. Email finding tools can help you get those all-important email addresses to make your outreach a success. There are a lot of different options out there to choose from, many of which with free plans and all with their different advantages. Often, though, you may need to use more than one to find the address you need. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of the best email finders.
If the email address exists, one of these tools will find it.
