Likelihood to Recommend

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.

If you live on LinkedIn like my marketing and sales teams do, it is invaluable for a growing business. Without it we would not have a decent percentage of our current customer base. However, I feel it is better suited for B2B businesses as searching for a work email and utilizing that information is much better in a business professional contact. If you work in P2P it may seem a little uncouth to suddenly receive emails from someone you have never spoken to before or know that you haven't divulged that information to. Lusha should be used to grow an existing relationship.

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.

Lusha

  • Really fast and really easy to use. It works simply through my Chrome browser and is really easy to set up and start using.
  • I can often find multiple contact points. Sometimes even multiple phone numbers for a specific person.
  • Integrates well with my CRM.
  • It also integrates and works great with Linkedin.

Cons

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.

  • The cost is too much, but since the tool gives accurate information it can be ignored.
  • Support should be a bit faster. They take a day to reply back.
  • There should be a button where we can give feedback if the data is inaccurate.

Alternatives Considered

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.

LinkedIn Sales Navigator and DiscoverOrg are both in the sales/marketing intelligence market, but they all have their own niche. DiscoverOrg is excellent for list building, Sales Navigator is great for social connections, and Lusha is excellent for hard to find contact information. In our case, we use all three platforms, so Lusha was not selected over another vendor.

Lusha

  • It has helped me get information on key contacts that I otherwise wouldn't be able to find
  • It has a free tier which is easy to use and often enough for the few troublesome contacts you need to find
  • It saves me a lot of time since I'm already in LinkedIn
