Some of the data enrichment tools let you validate your emails right away. It’s done to ensure that the emails you’ve got are all relevant (ready to receive emails). Data cleaning lets you maintain a high open rate, which directly affects your email sender reputation.

How to Find Someone’s Email on LinkedIn: Find Emails in Email Finders

If you have someone’s LinkedIn profile, then you know this person’s name, surname and company name. You can turn to a simple email finder tool in this case (especially if you’ve already paid for it).

Here are some of the tools you may consider using to find people’s emails:

  • Lusha
  • Closelyhq.com
  • Snov.io
  • RocketReach
  • FindThatLead

If you know your lead’s company name, just apply the respective filters and pull out the emails.

You can scroll down and find that very email of the person you were looking for if you’re, for example, interested in sending them details of your job offer.

In this case, it’s better to reach out to their direct (personal) emails. Email finders will indicate which email is work and which one is direct — this info will be displayed in your CSV file.

By incorporating an email finder, you may consider eliminating LinkedIn at all as an intermediary. You can directly find the email and phone number of anybody you want by just applying needed filters in an email finder.

In this article, we’ve listed the most common ways of finding someone’s email if you know their LinkedIn profile. The need to get an email from LinkedIn can arise in many scenarios: salespeople need them to do prospecting, head hunters — to contact job candidates.

If you’re looking for an email of a particular person, you can install a Chrome extension that will scrape data for you. Most popular options for this are Closely Surfer, Lusha and GetProspect. In case you need to reach out to people in bulk (for example, for prospecting), there is an option to use data enrichment tools. In this case, you’ll have to use 1) data scraper (like Closely Surfer) to be able to download LinkedIn and Sales Navigator search results in bulk 2) data enrichment tools like LeadRocks — to enrich your CSV file with LinkedIn URLs.

The most convenient option, in our opinion, though, is to eliminate LinkedIn at all and use a simple email finder to find anybody’s email. You’ll only need to know a person’s company name and job title. For salespeople, email finders are a very valuable asset.

Oh! You can also have just one tool at your disposal that will do everything for you – both data scraping and bulk email finding. For example, Closely and Lusha are email finders but they also offer LinkedIn data scrapers (Chrome extensions). You can pay for such a tool (you’ll be charged a certain amount per month for its usage) and take advantage of all their functionalities — both the emails finder feature and LinkedIn data scraping.
