How do you find someone’s email address? Using the symbol @ in searches on Google is useless since it’s ignored along with most of the special characters. We know ways to figure out a company email pattern via clever Google searches using the asterisk * (ask Gary Cozin ).
Unfortunately, our methods may not work in some cases. Besides, some companies, even large ones, don’t have a consistent pattern.
Here’s how to see which one of your guesses about someone’s email address is correct – in case the person is a LinkedIn member.
1. Enter ALL of your guesses into a text or a CSV file.
2. Upload it to LinkedIn as “Imported contacts”. (Don’t invite anybody! This may not be a good idea.)
3. Check out your “Imported contacts”. See which email was the right one?
