COMMENT FROM OUR AUTHOR

WEDNESDAY MARCH 2nd

Hi, Ross here. Hope you enjoyed yesterday's issue.

In today's newsletter, we feature a really interesting report from the University of Cambridge in the first domain name study of its kind. The article raises some really interesting points on the future of new tlds - (it's very bright according to professors!).

We link to the story of activist investor J Cannell's very frank letter filed at the SEC regarding Rightside.

Plus we link to a short but sweet post from Morgan Linton on choosing a name when .com is taken. I've also listed a couple of pretty useful name search tools.

And continuing our domain name marketing week, we have a look at some tools and services to help find any email address.

And lastly, there is the domains for sale section.

Let's crack on.

FIND ANY EMAIL ADDRESS

We covered yesterday how sending cold emails to sell your domains can be very effective. But what if you don’t know your prospects email address?

Today we’ll have some tools and tips to help get that email address.

First up is a tool called Email Hunter. It displays a list of all the publicly available email addresses associated with a domain name. For example, just type in namecheap.com and it will list all emails using the namecheap.com domain. You can search up to 200 domains for free each month which should be more than enough.

Once you have the email address you need, head over to Voila Norbert and enter the email address. This will then confirm if the email is deliverable or not.

There are some other ways without using services such as the above: Google and Twitter!

Use Google Search Operators To Find Emails

Sometimes it really is that easy. Try these basic queries first: [name] + email (or) email address [name] + contact (or) contact information (or) contact me If that doesn’t work, it’s time to get creative with Google search operators. Try running a search of their company website, like so: site:companywebsite.com + [name] + email site:companywebsite.com + [name] + contact

Use Twitter Advanced Search

People get asked for their email on Twitter all the time. You can use Twitter’s advanced search to find the last time your contact responded to such a request:

Search for the terms (at) (dot) in “All these words” under the ‘Words” section Enter their Twitter handle in “From these accounts” under the “People” section

Don’t waste your time searching for the word “email.” You’ll just end up combing through a long list of tweets on the topic of email, and not their actual email address.

There you go, easy.

Good luck in sending those emails.
