LinkedIn’s great for sales prospecting. It’s easy to get super-enthusiastic and start connecting with all the potential prospects you can find in their 250-million+ network… until LinkedIn asks you for an email address for every new connection request!

Linkedin Connection Request asking for email address

Why do you see this? That’s because you’ve violated LinkedIn’s user agreement. You have sent invitations previously to people who you don’t know. And those people have marked your invitation as SPAM or IDK (I-Dont-Know).

At this point, won’t see the other connection options you “used to” see.

“But I met him at the conference last year, I just don’t have his email address”, you say… All right, I hear you. Let’s solve this. We have to find his email address. Let’s use the Internet. 3 Steps.

Lets use these 3 samples for our learning:

Name Company Email
Hassaan Sophie eGrabber ?
Taylor Custer OrgSync ?
Laurie Robison Winshuttle ?

The 3 Steps to finding anyone’s email address

  1. Search google for his Name + Company + the “email” keyword ( this Google search solves Hassaan’s email )
  2. If that does not work,
    Search google for her Name + WebDomain ( this Google search solves Taylor’s email )
  3. and if that does not work,
    Search google for her colleagues’ email addresses, and guess her email address.
    ( search shows dominant email format in the Winshuttle company is FirstName.LastName )

Here are the results of our exercise:

Name Company Email
Hassaan Sophie eGrabber hassaan.sophie@egrabber.com
Taylor Custer OrgSync tcuster@orgsync.com
Laurie Robison Winshuttle laurie.robison@winshuttle.com

By most chances, they would have linked their business email address with their LinkedIn accounts. Be-warned, this works most-of-the time, especially for those who are active on LinkedIn. But there is no other better way.
