I am using Hunter to find, verify email addresses and perform campaigns. Cold emails for finding clients is not an easy task, and Hunter is helping me a lot. Not a perfect match every time for every contact, but I'm not perfect either. If you need an all-in-one solution for cold emailing, don't hesitate and run around looking for something better. Try it for one month. You won't regret it. I know I didn't.
  • Cold emailing
  • Finding emails from website domains
  • Email Verifier
  • Keep up the good work!
  • Maybe price, but that you will hear from everyone for everything
I'm using Hunter for finding clients, cold emailing, finding emails from domains, and verifying emails. I only need this and Ahrefs. Nothing else.

I use Hunter to get names and emails for my lead gen outreach.
  • Provides accurate contact info
  • More phone numbers and titles would be great.
Hunter is easy to use. Pricing is fair. Information is accurate.

I've been using Hunter Starter Plan for email verification, finding and saving new leads, cold email marketing campaigns for ~9 months. Their training, support, newsletters and YouTube channel are very helpful in learning how to use the full power of their services. I very much enjoy their system for making personalized, automated email campaigns as verified, effective and efficient as possible. I completely recommend their free service, but their Starter Plan is what I'm currently using and enjoy.
  • Automated Cold Email Marketing Campaigns
  • Email verification
  • Finding new leads and saving
  • Don't have any
Great for email verification. Great for finding and saving new leads. Excels at cold email marketing campaigns. Not appropriate for cold calling lists. Not appropriate for internal company emailing or chatting.

I use Hunter to get contact information about the companies that I want to get a collaboration with.
  • Get e-mail information
  • Fast, detailed and valid contact information
  • They come up with an immediate solution when I have a problem
  • They may offer more free inquiry quotas.
  • They may include SMEs' information
  • No more for now.
A great place for reaching information of potential customers. Also, the support team immediately responds to your inquiries, and all team members are so kind. Couldn't have asked for more

I've been using Hunter for quite a while now. The product has improved vastly since I picked it up.

It's been a great help but there are definitely points that can be improved. For example, [I feel] email verification is really off. Verified email addresses can usually be non-existent. I usually have to use a second tool to verify the email addresses that Hunter suggests. Other than that, being able to instantly find contact info through the [Google] Chrome extension is a huge time saver despite the inaccuracy of the verification part.
  • Great [Google] Chrome extension
  • Easily finds contact information
  • [I feel the] email verification can be vastly imroved
  • Not clear how credits are used
There isn't a faster tool out there as far as I know. I usually suggest Hunter to new hires and interns but always tell them to be wary of the legitimacy of the results.

Hunter is used by our sales department to verify and search for email addresses of prospects. It's extremely insightful when our research doesn't yield any contacts or emails, and it's used somewhat as a last resort. That being said, it's very much appreciated and beneficial to our team.
  • Pull up emails otherwise unable to be found.
  • Occasionally provides a full name and phone number.
  • Perhaps a feature that allows you to see if only generic emails are found i.e. support@, info@, etc.
  • It could improve not pulling up old emails for companies that aren't utilized anymore.
When our sales team can't find an email for a contact/company with our other software, we utilize Hunter and rely on it fairly heavily.

When trying to find emails for prospectives at target accounts for our cold outreach, we typically turn to Hunter when our other resources do not present us with the data, or we find that our emails have been bouncing at a high rate. It is beneficial to spread the word.
  • Plugin
  • Ease of Use
  • Website
  • Company #'s
Whenever you are trying to get in touch with someone, without prior contact, Hunter is the best way to find their email accurately.

Hunter is used within the sales department only. It hasn't been used in any other departments. It generally addresses the problem of lead generation, bulk mailing ID finding and verification of them. Hunter is widely used by the organisational sales and marketing team to generate and deliver a good amount of data in terms of E-mail ID.
  • E-mail finding.
  • E-Mail verification.
  • Cost must be less.
  • Emailing limitations like only for G-Suits are valid.
The main points where Hunter is well recommended are:
1. Mass mail ID finding of the particular domains.
2. One by one email ID finding.
3. Bulk mailing up to 400 email IDs a day by your G suit account.

The main points where hunter is less recommended:
1. The price of the tool which is much higher than other tools with same features.
2. The limit of the mailing is less, only 400 a day.
3. The accuracy of correct email ids is less.
4. Only G suit is used.

Hunter is used across the sales function at my company. Through extensive searching across various databases and websites, we have found that Hunter provides the simplest and cleanest user experience to search and find for a prospect and/or client's email address. It truly solves the problem of not knowing an organization's email cadence.
  • Providing email cadence across an organization
  • Suggesting contacts within an organization
  • Offering a Chrome extension to find contacts
  • Seamless integration with Salesforce would be great
  • The same type of integration with Google Sheets for an Excel plug-in
  • Suggested alternatives when unable to find/verify a contact's information.
Hunter is best utilized when a salesperson is looking for the direct email address for a contact. This is a common issue for salespeople, and Hunter does a great job of efficiently solving it. Simply knowing the company's website/domain name is all you need to uncover the email cadence for the company, and it's usually very accurate.

I am a top regional seller at a national media vendor. Individual sellers (not on the management level or the support level) use Hunter in order to properly identify and verify email addresses of prospective customers. Hunter significantly facilitates the ability of our sellers to contact prospective clients in order to establish initial contact and relationships.
  • Provides an accurate list of email addresses for users at target domains.
  • It is able to identify e-mail addresses for almost every website. It's rare when a website does not have email addresses associated.
  • Even if an email is not previously identified, Hunter can be used to verify the address as long as you are able to discern the email format (ex: first.last).
  • 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.
Hunter is a great tool for anyone in sales, especially if your job involves hunting accounts. Hunter does a great job of providing the proper email format (ex: first + last name @ website.com) for the vast majority (90%+) of target websites. The verify function is also invaluable as it allows sellers to confirm a lead's email address, which saves time and improves efficiencies.

We utilize this tool mainly in our sales efforts. It used by our business development and account management team. It is resourceful in locating contact information quickly online. It provides us typically with contacts email addresses.
  • Locates contact information.
  • Locates patterns of how many times that contact's name comes up online.
  • Identifies contacts by job title.
  • Sometimes contact information is outdated or incorrect.
  • Job titles and names are mismatched.
  • Sometimes doesn't locate our target contact.
Hunter is well-suited for sales and finding contacts within a company. It's not particularly useful in recruiting efforts.

I used Hunter to track down emails for prospecting and finding the right contact information within target organizations. There are a number of different tools similar to Hunter though this one was used by most of the organization. Finding the right email address is critical in sales so it served an important need.
  • Very good at finding email addresses if you know the domain name
  • Updating contact information within a CRM
  • Very good for sales teams and SDRs
  • Not particularly accurate if you don't have the correct domain main
  • Companies that use unique formats for email addresses often create issues
  • Information is sometimes outdated compared to other tools
Works well if you are looking for a cheap easy to use tool to start prospecting.

We use Hunter at Workable in order to capture contact email and phone information. It is primarily used by the sales team, and associated researchers, to great effect. With Hunter, we are quickly and easily able to find contact information that other tools might have missed. It is great for getting the email domain correct and helping to determine the structure of the first half of the email e.g. first name + last name@...
  • Provides email domains very well. While some companies have a different domain for their "info@xyz.com", Hunter is able to find the domain that is being used by individuals at the company.
  • For American contacts in particular it is very good at finding personal phone numbers.
  • Helps to enrich the contacts that might be in a company by providing a confirmed list of employees.
  • As an extra - I really like how easy it is to use. You can input the contacts name and copy-paste from the chrome extension quickly and easily. This saves a load of time when you are trying to find the right address.
  • Recently I have found the Hunter chrome extension to be a little "buggy". For example I sometimes have to open Hunter in a new tab in order to input a contacts name. This is a recent bug though and something I have never had trouble with in the past.
  • While it is great for finding contacts when all the email formats are the same, it doesn't give options to try additional email formats in their search bar. This is a little frustrating as the tool itself shows the different formats listed in the drop down of suggested contacts.
  • Information isn't always up to date. I'm not sure how they pull their contact information so I don't have a suggestion on how to improve this currently.
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.

The entire sales department uses Hunter to confirm valid email addresses prior to adding them to a cadence. This solves the issue of emails getting bounced and then rectifying the issue, which saves us a step.
  • Pretty accurate - shows the likelihood of that email working due to the number of sources that this email was found
  • It would be nice to see the percentage of this email working
  • Organised by the most likely to work to the least
It is great in sales/marketing for lead generation and for outbound propsecting. Would love to see this implemented/directly connected to LinkedIin and Salesforce.

As an SDR, we are constantly finding ways to prospect new leads for qualified clients and Hunter is a great platform to utilize in achieving our objectives.
  • Narrows search of businesses.
  • Narrows search of emails.
  • Narrows search of potential other business to seek out.
  • If the narrow process was more user friendly would be nice.
  • Provide accurate info for profiles within system.
  • integration with LinkedIn profiles would be nice.
Hunter is great for sending out cold emails to companies that you are targeting.

I was using Hunter to find E-mail addresses of prospects.
  • Hunter was good at finding e-mail addresses based on a database of other users at the same organization.
  • Chrome Extension is handy.
  • Somewhat redundant when using a tool like Zoominfo.
Well-suited in scenarios where you are searching Linkedin for potential prospects but not being able to find an email listed anywhere.

I am in sales, where I am constantly searching for contacts at the companies to utilize our media options to advertise their product or service. Finding the right person and email is extremely important and Hunter will quickly allow me to scrub the internet resources to confirm an email. Since I've been using Hunter, there have been new additions like the "verified" feature which is great. As a Hunter salesperson myself, this is an extremely valuable tool on a daily basis.
  • Verifying email addresses for people at a particular company.
  • Easy to use.
  • The bulk feature is really nice and will help clean up your data to input in your CRM.
  • I say with confidence, this product does everything I need it to do in my role.
Hunter is well suited for outbound emails to prospects in a sales organization.

Hunter is used by both the sales and marketing teams at our company. The sales and marketing teams use Hunter.io to find relevant contacts at key prospective target accounts. The sales team leverages the Google Chrome extension to look up the email format of companies and then searches for key roles within the organization.
  • 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.
  • Hunter.io's UI is a little clunky and it would nice to have a bigger expanded UI view compared to opening up a brand new tab each time a search is expanded.
  • I'd love to see a save feature for Hunter.io. This would save users a ton of time and keep them more organized.
  • It would be great if Hunter.io synced with Salesforce LinkedIn Navigator and my CRM, SharpSpring.
Hunter.io is very well suited for any sales rep who is building out lists of contacts for email outreach, or for marketer's looking to reach out to PR and marketing contacts for link building campaigns. The tool is a great free option if you are doing targeted, 1:1 personalized outreach and you need a few contacts. The tool can be expensive if you are needing to reach thousands of people. A paid version of Hunter.io is not a great fit if you already pay for another list building source such as Data.com or Discover.Org.

We use and have recommended Hunter to create a list of leads for our massive lead generation campaigns for our clients. Usually w,e use it together with a CRM pipeline and it works like a charm in a very efficient way to improve efficacy in the sales department of our clients.

  • Create lists of lead semi-qualified for outreach campaigns using other tools like Typeform or Salestools.
  • Be able to browse leads based on specific web domains.
  • Be able to send the lead internally to our CRM.
  • The tool lacks of importan information of leads. Very limited attributes are presented when searching.
  • The service needs a better self integration process with CRMs.
  • There are no good bulk options to look leads and integrate data into CRMs.
Hunter works perfectly for companies using a CRM or whatever other software involving customer data, to grow the list of leads you may need. Also, Hunter is perfect to add leads massively for your outreach email campaigns. However, it needs some improvement to show more attributes other than the name and email.

Hunter is not sponsored or paid for by my company. However I know through word of mouth many of my colleagues and I use it regularly. Hunter was at its best when it sat on my LinkedIn profile! Boy those were the good ol' days, then LinkedIn gave them a cease and desist order and the service has not been as good or valuable since.
  • Anytime I need an email address from a website Hunter is my first choice.
  • Hunter uses Chrome extension and I love the convenience and speed of the responses I recieve.
  • It's a great tool I use everyday
  • There have been times when I've search Hunter for an address on a website and it came back with no results. Then If I search the site I've often found an email address or two. So I'm curious why it wasn't able to find it with the tool, even when I could on my own?
  • I'm not sure what the reasons were exactly why LinkedIn ordered the cease and desist, but I had hoped they two companies could come to terms or that at the least LinkedIn would acquire Hunter. But alas, it's not been the case.
If you only are going to use one tool to search for emails, perhaps Hunter isn't the best. But I certainly recommend it as one of the tools in each sales pro's tool belt.

I use Hunter in combination with another free platform to perform email research on the qualified prospects. It's especially useful when you do ABM and aim at reaching a number of people within the same company. If that's the case, you can simply place the name of the target company, click Search, and the list of all people's emails available will show up on your screen in just a few seconds.
  • Email research
  • Provides the highest match
  • Provides a guess of a company's name in case you don't know the web address. The email extensions do not always depict a full company's name.
  • Hunter doesn't always result in data you are looking for.
  • It gives a limited number of searches monthly for free.
  • It no longer integrates with LinkedIn.
Hunter is excellent when you have a limited budget, a small marketing team as well as a small pool of people you are trying to reach.

We use Hunter to validate leads email and to uncover the email address of new prospective clients.
  • Email Discovering. Just give Hunter first, last and domain of your prospect and it will give you back their email address.
  • Validation of prospects' email addresses. Hunter helps us reduce the bounce rate to below 8%.
  • Lack of integration with SalesLoft seems like a basic miss.
  • Hunter makes heavy use of former data and it won't do a "great" job uncovering emails for less known domains.
Hunter is great to obtain the email addresses of your prospects, either individually or in bulk. The best use is early in the sales process, where you are typically creating a list of contacts to reach out to.
