Find the email addresses behind any website with Hunter.
Hunter is a set of platform offering a set of email tools that helps you to find, verify and utilise, or reach out to, email addresses and contacts in any organisation that has a current website.
Cold outreach is, and always has been, tough. My first task, in my first sales job, many years ago, was to start calling people from a Rolodex card index, starting from the A’s and working through to the Z’s and, once that was done, going through them all again, and again. those people were not expecting a call from me and the success rate was not so good BUT, after hundreds of calls I did make some real progress. It was time-consuming, boring and hard work but ultimately worthwhile as you gradually identified those contacts that were likely to become customers in the future.
It still is, except nowadays the initial contact with a new prospect is more likely to be made by email and finding, and verifying, email addresses for a business is, like the above example, time-consuming and likely to be fraught with problems. This package is designed to help with all that.
That’s why products like Hunter were created and Hunter is a superb product, well worth its subscription cost to any business that needs to find prospects and reach out to them. Many smaller businesses may be able to get by with the free account – see details below.
Hunter contains 4 main tools:
There are four main tools contained within the platform plus a number of other utilities that are designed to make the email marketer’s job much easier.
Domain Search – finds email addresses from any website domain. The Domain Search function is perfect for quickly finding who to contact in a business. In just half a second it lists the email addresses publicly available on the web, with confidence scores, department filters and detailed sources.
Email Finder – all you need to connect with any professional. It puts all Hunter’s data together : email formats, email addresses found on the web, verifications and other signals – to find the right contact information in seconds.
Author Finder – is the bridge between online authors and you. All you need is an article URL. The Hunter Author Finder will find the author and use Hunter’s unique database to enrich it with contact details for the author in question.
Email Verifier – Don’t get email bounces anymore. The Hunter Email Verifier is as complete as possible, with validations made at multiple levels: format, domain information, response of the mail servers and comparison with our unique base of 100+ million professional email addresses. this tool alone could save many wasted hours marketing to tired old databases.
