Sourcing and Research
There are many sites online dedicated to finding phone numbers and email addresses. Click the following link for a variety of the most popular available, and most are free. Finding Contact Information .
Almost all companies use one to three different email patterns for the ENTIRE COMPANY. Know the company email pattern/patterns, and you can email to ANYONE in the company – very simple.
For example, if a company uses the employee’s first initial, then the last name, it is easy to plug in other names. If firstname.lastname@example.org is John Smith’s email address, it is logical to assume email@example.com is the correct email address for Harry Jones. The trick is finding the pattern.
Plaxo is another business type social networking site. Much smaller than LinkedIn, BUT, a large percentage of the profiles in Plaxo include the business email address. So this is a logical place to start your search.
First you must join Plaxo - www.plaxo.com. I did upgrade my account to view more profiles, but it was very reasonable. Try it first before you buy.
The company we want to find the email for is Pilgrim’s Pride. Open Google and enter the following into the Google search box. This is using Site:Search – which taps into the person’s public profile. Include –intitle:directory if there are too many Directory profiles.
There are 392 results.
Clicking on the first one, Cindy Brown, reveals: Cindy.Brown@pilgrimspride.com. Thomas Loving is firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep opening profiles till you have the pattern established. Then send to all variations using your mailbox Bcc:
You will find some, but not all company patterns in Plaxo. So I took this one step further. I forced my family into labor – using 6-8 internet resources we are in the process of putting together Company Email Pattern Directories(ebooks) by industry. In seconds(using the Adobe FIND feature) a company’s name, address, website, phone number, products manufactured and the email pattern/patterns can be found – allowing the building of a call list with contact information extremely fast. And we all know – time is money and I’ll also add, beating your competition to the candidate is also money – IN YOUR POCKET..
