How Hunter.io can hold back your email prospecting and what is the best Hunter alternative?

 

For any of you who are familiar with Hunter.io, it is a good reliable tool when it comes to email finding. However, for many of us, this is just one small part of our outbound email process which may result in you looking for a Hunter  alternative. A full outbound email campaign process may look as follows:

  • Identify your prospects (you will do internally)
  • Find and verify your prospects email address (you will use a tool)
  • Organize your prospects and data (you will use a tool)
  • Create your email personalized email templates for your prospects (you will use a tool)
  • Automate your email sending (you will use a tool)
  • Understand the results and reporting of your prospecting (you will use a tool)

This can look like a lengthy process, but this is only the case if you do not have the right solution in place to make this as effortless, efficient and cost-effective as possible.

What can Hunter.io help with?

Hunter.io will support you in:

  • Finding prospects email addresses based on domain searches
  • Create 1 email and apply this to your prospects
  • Use Zapier to integrate with third-party tools
  • Export all data out of your Hunter.io dashboard and use as wished
  • Verify your existing data via the Hunter.io import feature

What pain-points might you face when using Hunter.io?

  • Cannot perform a quick custom prospect search.
  • Have to use a third-party tool to create and send an automated email campaign.
  • Have to have a Zapier subscription to take advantage of sending through a third-party tool, otherwise, it will be a very manual process.
  • You are now buying into multiple tools and subscriptions and not just one, which becomes very costly $$$$.
  • Email validation is solely restricted to public search basis. This will limit who you can prospect and the number of contacts available.

How do I know if I should be looking for an alternative?

Here are a few simple questions to help you understand if you should be looking for a Hunter alternative:

  • Do you need email finding and email sending in one place?
  • Are you using too many sales tools to facilitate your email prospecting efforts?
  • Are you spending too much $$$ on your sales tool stack?
