At the beginning of this year, NamePros published an article entitled “Five Of The Best Google Chrome Extensions For Domainers” in which we listed five Chrome extensions that could ameliorate your daily domaining routine. The fifth and final extension featured on that list was Hunter, a simple but effective way of finding email addresses. The service is an excellent option for anyone regularly performing outbound sales on their domain names. The Hunter extension is free to install on Google’s Chrome browser and free to use up to one hundred and fifty times per month. There are, of course, options to upgrade to premium plans that range for €49 to €399 per month. It’s likely that the free service will be sufficient, but if you’re planning on using the service heavily, upgrading may be worthwhile. If you perform outbound sales regularly or even intermittently to bring cash flow into your domaining business, then Hunter could be a perfect addition to your outbound sales toolbox. It’s not something that you may use for researching every lead, but it is a handy tool to have at your disposal nonetheless. The problem that many domain investors have when it comes to outbound sales is finding the right person to contact. Typically, emails sent to generic “[email protected]“ or “[email protected]“ email addresses may not be read by the decision makers you’re trying to reach. This is where a combination of your research and Hunter’s services come into play. Let’s say that you want to sell a certain domain name, and you have identified travel company Expedia as a possible buyer. To find the right email address, you can visit Hunter’s website and type in “expedia.com” in the search box. From there, you’ll get a list of email addresses using the “@expedia.com” domain. These email addresses by themselves are not overly useful. However, they very often come with extra information about each person’s role within the company. If you can’t find a suitable person to contact from the list provided, you will at least have an idea of the email address format used by the company, making it far easier to guess a person’s email address when you do find the right contact. After you’ve identified the person you want to contact along with their email address, you can use Hunter to verify their email address to ensure that you’re sending targeted emails to the right email addresses. There are likely to be several other services out there that do something similar to this, but for ease of use and their vast database, Hunter must be added to your outbound sales arsenal. It should be noted that to register with Hunter, you’ll need a “professional” email address, which means you likely will not be able to use an “@gmail.com” or an “@yahoo.com” address, for example.
