Phone sellers annoy us all: they call at an inconvenient time, offer unnecessary waste, speak like robots, they have to patiently listen to their memorized presentations because education does not allow them to be sent right away. But what about when we have to make and sell something: a start-up product, a business service, ourselves as a specialist?
If your potential buyer is someone from the digital world, in which, as we know, calls are considered indecent, you need to test the email sales channel.
To be successful, several things will help:
• list of potential customers;
• an understandable and marketable product;
• the ability to present your proposal clearly and without familiarity in two paragraphs;
• good presentation as an attachment;
• the email of the decision maker.
In this article, we will explain how to find an email address with a name.
Find a person’s email address on their business website
Imagine a situation among readers, some people are not at all familiar with the subject, and we will start with the basics. You came to the website of a certain company and realized that it was your potential customer, and you even found a boxed firstname.lastname@example.org on the contact page. Do not rush to write on it: in most cases, it will be a letter nowhere.
Take a closer look at the site: see all the contact pages, on the company, on the team. You may be able to find the name and mail of the manager responsible for the branch you need. Today’s leaders often post private mail in public access, alluding to their availability when problems arise. Therefore, finding an email will be easy.
If you can download a press kit, a presentation or a company report on the site, scroll through them: on the last slide, you will find the contacts of key people. It is also a good idea to study the company blog and consult the profiles of the authors of the articles or the “Press about us” section. Often there are published posts mentioning the first people in the business, from these posts you will find their names, and that is half the battle.
Search someone’s email address in search engines
You can use Google’s advanced search. First, try to create a query using the following formulas:
• [name] + e-mail / e-mail address;
• [name] + contact / contact details / contact me
If that doesn’t help, you need to be more creative with the help of the search operators. Try to find the necessary information on the company website, for example:
• site: siteweb.com + [name] + email;
• site: companywebsite.com + [name] + contact.
All of the above methods are the basics of finding information and allow you to find, if not an email address, at least the name of the right person. And then advanced email search tips and tools are used, known to experienced digital recruiters and sellers, but not to the general public. We will now restore justice a little and talk about these tricks.
Advanced tactical search
The main trick to finding e-mail addresses is that if they are business addresses, then they are all built according to certain models that combine different spellings of first and last name. The most popular examples are:
Knowing the name and surname of the recipient, as well as the company website, you will most likely find the person’s address using these templates.
Find a professional email address with an email search engine
If all of the above methods don’t work for you and you haven’t found the right person – don’t be discouraged. To find a business email address you need, you can use the email search tool, which will confidently find the mailbox you need.
To use this feature, simply go to the email search engine website and fill in all the necessary fields. The system will automatically find the required email address.
