7. Social Networking Sites

People use social media in various ways to share information with each other. If someone has their number listed on a social media website, you may be able to reach them.

If you know the person and are trying to reconnect, friend them on Facebook, or make them a connection on LinkedIn. Sometimes, you could also ask one of their mutual friends or connections for their number as well (if they find you legit enough).

  • Facebook 

Using just a name, an email address, or a common connection (like a workplace, college, or organization), you can uncover a surprising amount of information at Facebook, the world’s largest social networking website with hundreds of millions of users. There are many ways to find people on Facebook, and depending on how public people have made their personal information, you can actually be quite successful finding a phone number here as well.

  • LinkedIn

If you just type in the person’s name on LinkedIn, then the possibility of finding the person’s contact number is pretty high. This is mainly if you are planning on searching him/her for growing your business. This is because every person working in a corporate company will definitely have an account on LinkedIn. So, use your connections well, find where the person works as that will get you the apt information.

8. Find Phone Numbers From Google

Before we get into the discussion, let me tell you one thing: while we know that Google index a whole lot of information. That said,  it still doesn’t mean that you will be able to find someone’s phone number if they haven’t shared it in any form of public space. However, the following methods will possibly track down the phone numbers that have been listed at some online platform.

  • Full Name + Zip Code – Just type in the person’s name along with their zip code. Google will return the information that is closest to your query along with a map.
  • Search By Using The Full Name – If the person has entered their phone number onto the internet, especially on various resources, then a simple Google search might turn up their phone number.
  • Search By Domain – Sometimes, people add their personal phone numbers to their business websites as well. So, if you know the domain name of your prospect’s website, then search using the domain name along with the query “contact us”.


So, these were some of the ways using which you can find the phone numbers of your prospects and leads.

Since phone books don’t list cell phones, it’s a bit trickier to reach out to somebody you don’t already know. Hence, hopefully, these methods help you with the process of finding that contact number!
