All you need to do is to follow these simple ways to find Business Emails using Google.
1. Google It Out Using Basic Queries
We’ll start off with the simplest, cheapest and the most accessible option.
Wait… Already did it? Still got no proper results? Then it seems that you missed some important steps.
Change your search operations and try typing these queries in search engine:
- [name] + contact
- [name] + other contact information
If this doesn’t work out, then experiment a bit more. Include their company’s website in your Google Search, like this:
- Site:companywebsite.com + [name] + contact
- Site:companywebsite.com + [name] + other contact info.
If even this doesn’t work out then continue reading further. Treat this tip as a warm-up, we’re just getting started.
2. Modify Your Queries By Adding Personal Modifiers
If you are not able to get relevant search results using basic queries, then add a little something extra to your queries. Narrow it down a bit and add some personal information in the query – hometown, company name and anything else you can get your hand on.
It should look something like this:
- [name] + “hometown”
- [name] + “company they work for”
Have you got the results with this method? Then mission accomplished.
But this method is known to generate results somewhere around 10% of the time, sometimes even less.
Not so reliable, is it?
Now, we’ll have to go corporate.
3. Add Business Networks To Your Search Queries
Adding business networks to your search optimisation is one of the best resources for finding business emails. Everyone working for an enterprise is bound to have in-house business emails. But the point is how to reach that email?
This is where professional networks like ZoomInfo and LinkedIn comes in.
Either you can go to these sites and then search. But if you are not willing to do that, go to Google search and type in these queries:
- [name] + LinkedIn
- [name] + ZoomInfo
This is what came up when I typed in [name] + ZoomInfo,
