It would be great if Hunter.io synced with Salesforce LinkedIn Navigator and my CRM, SharpSpring.,8,We only use the free version of Hunter, so any leads we get results in an immediate positive ROI. This tool saves our sales team an incredible amount of time and thus saves us several hours, and the associated opportunity cost, as we build out lists to get new prospects in the funnel. Hunter verifies emails, helping us save our domain rating and ensures we aren't getting into more spam inboxes.,Data.com,Hunter.io as a tool does not provide any large, customized reports for all the leads you are interested in.

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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

Hunter Review: "Find your right contact fast!"

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.

"Hunter helps reduce email research time and bounce rates."

Score 8 out of 10

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.
