In the world of social media, Instagram is becoming a popular day-by-day.
And, why not?
Instagram offers you a platform where you can easily share your happy, sad, funny, emotional, and enjoying moments of your life via images and Insta stories.
From celebrities to top industry brands, everyone is a fan of Instagram. Rather, 33% of B2B companies are active on Instagram. This means that many B2B professionals might be present on Instagram and you have a good opportunity to collect your prospect’s email addresses from Instagram.
Today, we are going to see some hacks that will fetch your prospect’s email addresses from their Instagram account.
Let’s get started.
Study your Prospect’s Instagram Profile
The first step is to carefully go through your prospect’s Instagram profile. The majority of marketing professionals and social influencers use business accounts to promote their brand. Hence, there is a pretty chance they might have directly displayed their email address on profile.
Following is the Instagram account of a popular Indian social influencer Ashish Chanchalani.
You can see his profile is verified. He has mentioned, “For contact/business please drop a mail on [email protected]” Thus if any brand wants to collaborate with him, they can easily find his email address mentioned on profile.
Using email finder or email lookup tools is the best way to find emails from Instagram. There are tons of email finder tools available on the internet. These tools will search the required addresses for you and provide you with a list of 100+ genuine email addresses.
Some of the popular email finder tools are AeroLeads, Hunter, FindThatLead, Voila Norbert, etc. Just head to any of these tools and enter your prospect’s name or website and hit “search”.
Among all these tools, AeroLeads is one of the top-ranked email finder tools on the internet to collect emails for email marketing. It is popular among many marketers for its ability to find genuine emails from social media platforms like Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, Xing, etc.

Guess Their Email Ids from Their First and Last Names
Many times Instagram users won’t directly display their email ids. Also, some users won’t display their actual names on Instagram. For example, a person may run his Insta account with the name “mostlysanejohn”.
In such cases, you can directly message the user and establish a professional conversation. Tell them your purpose for messaging them and politely ask for their email address and actual name.
If you don’t get success by the above method, you can search Google to find their actual name. Chances are high that top professionals are present on other social platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Xing, etc. where they use their actual names.
Once you know their real name and company’s name, you can try the following combinations of email addresses. For example, if your prospect named Joseph Gates is working in a company called, “aspiring minds”, his email address is likely to end with @aspiringminds.com.
Though this method cannot guarantee accurate results, you may end up with some lucky guests. Hence, it’s worth a try.
We have thus seen how to find emails from Instagram using three methods. Since Instagram is mostly used for entertainment purposes, your chances of finding B2B prospects are less as compared to professional platforms like LinkedIn and Xing. Hence, it’s recommended to use email finder tools while trying to search for emails from Instagram.
