Prospect Linked finds people's work email addresses
We crawl the internet, gather the publicly available email addresses, figure out the patterns used by each company, and organize all of this information into a searchable database. Like all great tools, it's simple and just works. Also like all great tools, it began out of necessity.
While working in a sales position for a small software company, I needed a way to get in front of prospective customers and present the product we had just released. I could easily write an opening email, but I needed to somehow build a list of email addresses of people likely to become customers.
I started doing some searches and found a number of vendors online that would gladly sell me “targeted" prospect lists. I purchased a couple of lists and started reaching out. I quickly learned about half of the emails would bounce back and the telephone numbers were either wrong, disconnected, or the person hadn't been with the company for over 6 months.
I then tried to track each email address down individually — going to a company's website and taking note of the format of an email address provided. Over and over, hundreds of times. This turned out to be much more accurate, but it was time-consuming.
Surely there must be a better way. Why should this be such a tough problem to solve?
I realized this process must be followed by thousands of sales and marketing people daily. All spending countless hours running down email addresses and telephone numbers.
