Other recommended ways
If you think you don’t really need any of the lead generation or email finder tools, there are still some ways you can find emails of people. These tips are especially useful if you only have an occasional need of finding other people’s email or contact details. You can also use these tips to find someone’s email address when you cannot find it using your email finder tool.
1. Google it
This has worked for me many times. If I could not find a specific person or department’s email address on their company website, I try my luck with google.
You can do the following query formats:
- [name]+email/email address
- [name]+contact/contact me/contact details
If you know the company name or website of the person or department you are looking for, you can also input it on the search box.
2. Use Twitter
There are two ways to use Twitter to find someone’s email address. First is to simply reach out to the person or company and ask for their email address. The second way is to do advanced search. While the first one is self-explanatory, let us talk about doing the advanced search.
Simply go to “advanced search” or if you are in the Twitter home page, just go the search box found on the upper right corner, type in any word or character, and press enter.
Once you are in the results page, click on “advanced search” on the right.
In the advanced search, type “at” and “dot” on “all of these words” under “words”. Under “accounts”, type in the twitter account on “from these accounts”. Press “search”.
3. Reach out through the website’s contact form or generic company email
Another convenient way to find someone’s email address on the web is to directly ask the company through their contact form found on their website. You may also email the generic company email and ask for the specific email address of the person you wish to keep in touch with.
4. Subscribe to their mailing list
If the above tips don’t work, you can try subscribing to a website or person’s mailing list. Pretty soon, they will be sending you an email. You can then reach out to them using that email address they used to email you.
5. Make a guess
Making guesses can actually lead to some results. While this can be time-consuming, you can give it a shot. Compose a message in your email and type in your guesses in the “to” field. Move the cursor over each email address. The one that pops up with an associated Google profile should be a valid email address.
You can make guesses using the following formats shared by ahrefs.com:
Finding someone’s email address on the web instantly is possible using email finders and lead generation tools. If you are not into using these software, you can always know someone’s email address using Google, Twitter, the company’s contact form or mailing list, as well as simply making guesses.
