Getting emails, phone numbers and important information from different networks like Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more is a challenge for most entrepreneurs, but in this step-by-step tutorial we will show you how to achieve this in record time.
First you need to understand that every website is crawled by different Search Engine spiders such as Google, Bing and others. So for instance, the search engines know things that we might take advantage from. You won’t be needing to crawl the entire internet tool, you will have to use the search engines for this.
But… how to use them properly?
There are plenty of tricks that might be unknown for you, like Google Commands or conditional booleans. Lets go and see one by one how they work.
This command will allow you to specify the search only for a website, for example:
site:instagram.com + Marketing with this query, you will find only profiles or posts that have the Marketing keyword on the About sections or in the post copy.
Now lets try adding a pattern between quotes “example” , along with conditions such as AND, OR which can be used between keywords that have these double quotes. Example:
site:instagram.com + “Marketing” AND “@gmail.com”
If we visit each of those profiles, you will find that they have their contact email on the About me section:
Now that you understand this concept, you can play with any website and with any email pattern, but there are more tricks that you can use to keep finding juicy information.
Now lets try finding contact with different patterns of keywords that might give business emails. Let’s review this trick adding different types or keywords that are most commonly used before sharing an email, such as:
site:linkedin.com/in + “Email me at”
You will find many kinds of emails not just from @gmail.com, for example email@example.com
So now you know you can use this commands to get as many contacts you want, now lets try adding a niche keyword into that search so we see results:
site:linkedin.com/in + “Email me at” + “Real Estate”
There you are, it’s just a matter to enter the profiles and copy them directly into a spreadsheet and not manually all you need.
You can also try this trick to all the following networks to get professional people, or people you can contact in many ways that we will explain.
