LinkedIn hides information from you

LinkedIn might be the leader in social networking for the professionals, still it doesn’t always show you some reliable informations about the person you are looking for.

“Get email” will always need some informations such as: first name, last name and the company name. So when you get to a profile that doesn’t contain those informations, for example if you find “LinkedIn Member” the tool will be unable to find the email address for you.

So, the rule is simple:

No name on the Linked In profile, No email found with GetEmail.io!

See below:
linkedin member

The reasons why Linked In shows “Linked In Member” instead of the real name of the person is: you have a connection degree of more than 2 with that person (you’re not directly connected to that person, neither is a person you’re connected with).

To be clear, say you’re visiting profile P and you want his/her name.

You’ll have his/her name if:

You                 -(connected to)->                 Somebody 1                 -(connected to)->                 Profile P

Instead of the name of Profile P, you’ll have “LinkedIn Member”, if:

You                 -(connected to)->                 Somebody 1                 -(connected to)->                 Somebody 2                -(connected to)->                Profile P

Clear enough? I hope so 🙂

If you want to know everyone’s name on Linked In, you might need a paid LinkedIn subscription, which will allow you to see the names of any profile you’re looking for.

Enjoy GetEmail.io & LinkedIn

How do I get the best possible email accuracy with GetEmail.io?

Hello everyone,

Many of our new users test GetEmail.io a bit, get what they think as bad emails, and then draw the conclusion that GetEmail.io is not reliable.

Email validation services are NOT reliable

So first of all, let’s talk about how to find out if an email is good or bad. There are email validation services on the Internet (such as mailtester.com, neverbounce.com, etc … check this article for detailed information : https://www.accuwebhosting.com/blog/2014/09/29/top-10-bulk-email-list-verification-validation-services-compared/ ). However, these services ARE NOT 100% reliable (because of the limits of the technology they use), that is, sometimes a correct email will be analyzed as bad, and other times a bad email will be analyzed as good.

So, if you test the emails GetEmail.io finds against these platforms, this will not prove the emails are good or bad.

GetEmail.io does not turn mud into gold

One of the main reasons why the emails are NOT good is that the data you provide is NOT good. That is, in order to find the right email addresses, our algorithm needs to have good input data: name and company of the people whose emails you’re looking for. If you provide poor quality data, that is, false/incorrect names, outdated information about companies where people work, this will ultimately lead to unreliable emails. We’re able to correct this up to a certain point, but definitely the more accurate the data you provide, the more accurate the emails you’ll get.

We’re  Artificial Intelligence and Big Data experts, we’re not alchemists, we cannot turn mud into gold 🙂

GetEmail.io takes up to 10 minutes to fully find & verify the validity of an email address

However, sometimes, it may happen that GetEmail gives you wrong email addresses. If this is your case, it is BECAUSE YOU DID NOT USE GETEMAIL CORRECTLY.

Please read below how to proceed in order to have up to 97% OF CORRECT EMAILS.

When GetEmail.io searches for a particular email address, it launches lots of processes in parallel, in order to find the email you’re looking for, in real time. After a couple of seconds, most of the time, we’ve already found a possible email address, even if we’re not yet sure this is the good one. Because you want a correct email address, but you also need it quickly, we’ve set up a trade off between speed and reliability. So when you’ve sent a request to GetEmail.io we’ll display the email address we reasonably think is the good one as fast as possible. After we give it to you (by the way, with all sorts of warnings and disclaimers, if you read our comments), we continue to fully test the email we’ve found, until we’re sure it is the correct one.

The complete process of searching an email takes 10 minutes, sometimes more. It’s only after this, that we’re able to give you a reliable email address.

This is why some email addresses we provide are bad: because we’ve displayed them for you before we were able to fully test them.

How to use GetEmail.io in order to GET THE BEST EMAIL ADDRESSES IN THE WORLD

Please proceed as follows :

  1. send as many requests as you want, insert as many prospects as you want into GetEmail.io. You can do this by using the Google Chrome Extension, by our API, by hand one by one, by uploading an CSV, etc …
  2. wait for 10 minutes
  3. extract the prospects you’ve harvested by downloading the CSV file with all your contacts

Now, some of you will say, “deah … wait for 10 minutes for every email is too much”. NO, you don’t have to add a prospect, wait 10 minutes, then add another one, etc … You just add all of them as fast as possible, in parallel, then, when you’re done, wait for 10 minutes (once), and download all of them at once.

Regards,

How many credits do we use on GetEmail.io?

Hello,

Many of you wonder how many credits they will pay when they use GetEmail.io, so here’s a clear explanation of how it works.

If you’re using the Google Chrome Extension

When our algorithm is searching for an email, it will follow 2 steps :

Step 1. SEARCH for the email.

Step 2. VERIFY the email, to make sure it’s the right one.

When using our Google Chrome Extension, the “Step1. SEARCH” will take 1 credit, but “Step 2. VERIFICATION” is free.

So, there are 3 possibilities :

  1. We have not found any email. You don’t use any credit.
  2. We have found an email, and it passed the verification procedure, it’s most likely a good email. You’ll use 1 credit.
  3. We have found a possible email, but it DID NOT pass the verification procedure, son the email is NOT good. You’ll still use 1 credit, because we’ve used a lot of computing ressource to find that out. You’ll use 1 credit.

If you use our “VERIFY” feature

Every email verification will use 1 credit. If you send several times the same request, it will not use any additional credit.

If you use our “COMPANY” feature

Every request will take 1 credit. However, please be aware that the emails are NOT verified. If you want to make sure the emails are correct, you have to pass them through the “VERIFY” feature, and eliminate the bad ones.

Regards,

New GetEmail.io killing feature: list management

Hello all,

I just wanted to let you know that we’ve recently released the most requested feature amongst our users.

From now on, you’ll be able to create lists of prospects, and add the new prospects directly in those lists. This feature will significantly increase your productivity, because you’ll create as many categories of prospects as you want, and you’ll be able to extract only the prospects in the list you’re interested in.

For example, you might create a list of prospects for eacy city, and then extract from our dashboard only the prospects for New York, for a specific outbound campaign.

If this feature is interesting for you, please get back on GetEmail.io and use it. We’d LOVE to have your feedback.

How to successfully use LinkedIn with GetEmail?

Let’s start with a few advices :

  • How to target the right audience? It’s very simple. All you need to do is using the advanced research. A new window will open and you can fill this page with your notes on your ideal client. You can choose who you want to contact depending on the location, the current company, the industry, but also some other criteria available if you upgrade your LinkedIn account : funciton, company size, years of experience, groups,…
  • Don’t forget to look at “People also viewed” sidebar : When you visit the profile of a prospect, the “People Also Viewed” box contains others similar to your contact. As a result, you can turn one interesting prospect into several, and you’ll save your own time.
  • Use Boolean Google Search : If you don’t want to upgrade your LinkedIn account but you can’t load a lot of profiles when you’re typing keywords into the search box, you should use Boolean Google Search which will give you a list of LinkedIn profiles.

How does it work? You have to type “site:linkedin.com/in” and then you can add quotation marks (results containing the exact phrase), OR (results that either contain search term A or search term B), AND ( results that contain both search term A and search term B), or NOT (results that contain search term A without search term B). For example : site:linkedin.com/in “Chief Marketing Officer” OR “Chief Executive Officer”


Should you take a LinkedIn Premium Account?

As you probably already know it, LinkedIn has a Basic Free Version and several paid accounts. I am going to sum up the differences so that you can decide if you should take a subscription.

Basic account : With a free LinkedIn account you get all the basics. That means you get a full profile, messages, groups, and the Pulse news feed.  You can only get a total of 5 introductions. The free version of LinkedIn does not allow for InMail while the upgraded accounts do.

Premium accounts :

Job Seeker ($29.99 / month)

  • 3 InMails messages
  • 300 search results outside your network when you search
  • 15 introductions that you can use to have your connections introduce you to their connections
  • Who’s viewed your profile

Business Plus ($59.99 / month)  :

  • 15 InMail messages
  • View unlimited profiles from search results and suggested profiles
  • Exclusive access to key metrics and trends
  • 5 saved searches
  • Who’s viewed your profile

Sales Navigator ($79.99 / month) :

  • 30 InMail messages
  • Unlimited profile search
  • Create custom lead lists with advanced search filters
  • Who’s viewed your profile

Recruiter Lite ($119.95 / month) :

  • 30 InMail messages
  • Unlimited profile search
  • Track candidates and open roles with Projects
  • Use dynamic suggestions as you search to expand and refine your talent pool
  • Who’s viewed your profile
