The 14 Best Personal Email Finder Tools Of 2022

Email remains the best method of outreach and is certainly one of the most efficient communication tools, but that doesn’t always mean that it’s the easiest to use. Put yourself in the situation of a hardworking team member who needs to email a new prospect. They’ve spent time and effort pulling together a pitch, and they’ve tailored your offering to the potential client, all they need to do now is make sure it lands in the right person’s inbox.

But they’re missing that all-important email. The decision maker’s email. It’s not on any contact form, it’s not on LinkedIn or any other social. Sadly, this looks like another dead end.

That is unless you’re using an email finder tool.

Why Use A Personal Email Finder Tool?

The above scenario is just one example of why you might choose to use a personal email finding tool. There are myriad more reasons why you might use one:

  • You want to send a cold outreach email
  • You want to grow your personal network through an introduction
  • You need to have a professional conversation with someone
  • You want to save the embarrassment of having lost their email…

Whatever the reason is, email is here to stay. In fact, many people still check in on their email inbox more than they do on their social media accounts. Email is still king when it comes to business communication.

Years ago you might have been able to simply Google someone and their email would pop up, or you could dig into social media, but that’s no longer the case. Privacy has become a mainstream expectation and people are worried about what is easily available online. That’s not to say that personal email finding tools are an invasion of privacy since they still use publicly accessible information, but collate it in a far more easily accessible way.

Top 14 Personal Email Finder Tools

What follows is our list of the best 14 personal email finder tools. These are the tried and tested, and are the tools that are most likely to deliver the addresses that you seek.

Skrapp

Skrapp is a little unusual in the way it works. Rather than accessing a database or freely accessible data, it uses algorithms to, essentially, guess what a correct email will look like. It looks at typical email patterns and then suggests what the email could be. This works fine if you’re willing to try a few variations.

It’s straightforward to install, being a chrome extension, and you can get started very quickly indeed. When you’re ready to get started you’re able to search for individual emails, search in bulk or search for all related to a specific domain. Then you can simply download the data as an Excel or .csv file.

Price: You can grab your first 150 email addresses for free, so it’s worth a try. Beyond that, Skrapp starts at $34 a month per 1000 emails a month.

LeadGibbon

Another Chrome extension, LeadGibbon allows you to scrape LinkedIn data for email addresses, filter as your wish, and then automatically import it into your choice of CRM. The extension also adds buttons to LinkedIn which means integrated, quick searching. Once addresses are collated, some are verified automatically, and those that don’t give you the option to verify before launching an email campaign.

Alongside the information, you’ll also be presented with a column outlining the email address's source, which allows you to make a call on how accurate you feel it is.

Price: After the initial 7 day trial, LeadGibbon will cost $99 a month.

Wiza

Wiza is a Chrome extension that focuses exclusively on LinkedIn. Similar to LeadGibbon, Wiza adds a new button to your LinkedIn searches with a “Get Email” button. Clicking this reveals the prospect’s email address and adds it to a central bank. If you’re looking for a bigger haul of email addresses, simply paste a LinkedIn search URL into Wiza, run the system and you’ll be presented with a plethora of email addresses.

Once a search is complete, Wiza handily emails you the spreadsheet so that you can easily forward it on to other team members.
