Clearout

Clearout is the best and easiest email verification tool there is. It is a great tool for any company that does email outreach or needs to validate email lists on a regular basis. It is very easy to use, it's pretty much self explanatory. Clearout can validate both large and small email lists so it is appropriate for any size company that uses email marketing.

Hunter

The scenario we most commonly use Hunter for is to quickly find and retrieve contact email information. Phone numbers are an added bonus, but they tend to only be available for contacts in the US. SDRs have the extension in order to confirm or to help them "guess" as to what a contact's email address might be. This speeds up our prospecting time considerably. Where Hunter falls short is not being flexible where companies have more than one email format.

Pros

Hunter

  • Hunter provides a quick and easy way to look up the email format for any company using the free Google Chrome extension.
  • Hunter allows you to upload a bulk list of emails and verify them easily.
  • Hunter shows where verified emails were found on web pages and PDF documents. This shows that the emails were published by trusted sources.

Cons

Clearout

  • More integrations would be nice, not a fan of Zapier
  • Validating large lists can sometimes take a long time to complete
Gary Shouldis | TrustRadius Reviewer

Hunter

  • Hunter is only as valuable as the information it is able to scrape from the internet. If a company has not listed any email addresses online, then Hunter is not going to be able to find it.
  • Sometimes Hunter is only able to identify non-personal-specific email addresses (ex: info @, support@, etc.). This makes it difficult to identify personnel emails
  • Sometimes companies will have different email domains that Hunter is not able to correlate. For example, when searching for an email address at Lead.com, Hunter is not able to point to ParentCompany.com email addresses that would be more useful.

Alternatives Considered

Clearout

We also use TrueMail to verify our email lists but we find the user interface is a little better with Clearout. Clearout is also more accurate in my experience when validating large email lists and completes the validation process faster than TrueMail. Both tools are good and both have a nice user interface.
Gary Shouldis | TrustRadius Reviewer

Hunter

Hunter is a lot easier and quicker to find an email compared to other products I have used. Although it doesn't have a directory or a list to search through, it's still a useful tool to quickly find someone's email. In terms of pricing, it is cheaper but it has limited functionality.

Return on Investment

Clearout

  • A positive ROI was achieved in the first month, Clearout is well worth the money
  • Clearout helps keep our email sender status squeaky clean with our email service providers
  • We are able to run large scale email outreach campaigns without fear of high bounce rates and poor sender scores

Hunter

  • Definitely Hunter has built lead lists for our clients in a very fast way for our clients.
  • It has managed to cut the times of preparation of lead lists in more than 200% of the time compared to other traditional ways.
  • Our clients can now have tons of leads and deliver contents in a faster way to validate these prospects.
