Upgraded account a few minutes into free trial

5.0 4 years ago

Pros:

This app is amazing and underpriced. I've seen companies small and large pay ALOT more - piecing together multiple isolated products - and still getting less functionality. And Zapier integration sealed the deal.

Cons:

honestly none yet - a mobile application would make for better accessibility/notifications but it's far from a must-have.

A Must Have Sales Tool

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: I have used Hunter as a secondary tool for prospecting for the past 5 years, I'm loyal and I'm ROI positive so it's a no brainer to continue using the software.

Pros:

If you or your sales team does any prospecting by visiting a website, this extension will be a game changer especially if you're looking to acquire emails associated to the domain in just a simple click. The emails are much more accurate than buying a list and it's much more affordable to seek out and build your own list using hunter. I suggest using a combination of LinkedIn and Hunter to make sure you find the decision maker or contact to maximize your monthly limits.

Cons:

Sometimes it take a little bit of time to load and if you click off the site while it's loading emails you have to start over. This is a minor issue but it can get frustrating if you are heavily prospecting a large list which leads me to my next con, quantity of emails you can acquire with their packages. If you prospect a lot of companies every month you may need to switch to a higher tier for membership which could get pricey.

Review on use

5.0 last month New

Pros:

Quickness, ease of use, ability to use without purchasing a plan.

Cons:

Some emails are not found for those who work for a certain company. This may be a software related drawback or the people do not have an email at all.

Good for finding emails

3.0 last month New

Pros:

You can find almost 100% accurate emails; if not, they are telling you the truth.

Cons:

You can only find 25 emails a month; that's way too low for consumers to consider buying their services.

Hi Douglas, Laura here from Hunter, I just wanted to quickly reach out and thank you for sharing your feedback with us! It makes us very happy to see that you can find the contacts you're looking for. I think it's important to mention that Hunter can only find what is publicly available on the web, therefore, the results depend on the web presence of the companies you research but it might also happen that, for smaller or recently established domains, we may not always have results yet. At present, we list over 107M professional emails and this number is constantly growing: https://hunter.io/our-data We're always working hard to expand our dataset and improve our customers' experiences. Thanks again and all the best! Laura - Customer Success @ Hunter.io
