Inbox for Outreach – the Best Tools for Finding Email Addresses

The way we work has changed in a number of ways over the last few weeks as governments around the world try to flatten the coronavirus curve.  However, as we switch from commute to couch and, from power suit to track suit, one thing remains the same – the need to reach out for new leads. 

Now, more than ever, it’s vital to be able to stay in touch with clients and find new ones and, email remains the best option for doing this. 

Studies show that 72% of people still prefer to receive communication by email than any other medium, making it the most effective way of reaching new customers – which is great… if you know where to find them.
