Email marketing is no longer what it used to be. It has a low conversion rate, which means that we need to have a huge email list to make up for the small percentage and drive sales.
Finding prospects is also incredibly tedious. Before I created my tool, there were generally 3 ways to find prospects:
- Networking events
- Email lists
- Manual search on Google
To build our network, we go to conferences, trade shows, networking lunches, business networking events and seminars. There, we hope to find people who are interested in our product. And usually we do. These events tend to give us a higher chance to close a deal, but they are very expensive and time-consuming.
The alternative to networking events is to buy email lists. However, email lists also come with their own problems.
- They are ridiculously overpriced
- They are obsolete or completely incorrect (Out of 10,000 emails, at least 6,000 bounce because they are no longer in use.)
- These emails are so flooded with emails from hundreds if not thousands of people that the receivers are either stop bothering with unknown emails or have implemented strong filters that auto-junk emails
THE BIGGEST HEADACHE
The biggest headache in email marketing is COST. For anyone who has tried to find email leads without burning cash, you probably tried to manually search for emails on Google. You search for your industry and click on every single search result and scroll through the chunk of text to find an email address. But that is not effective.
I used to source for emails manually from Google, which took me 4 hours to get 50 emails. But now, I take 4 minutes to get 50 emails.
Now that I have eliminated the entire process, I save over 100 hours to focus on important tasks like meeting prospects and clients.
To explain without the technical details, I built a tool that extracts every single email within a single Google Search.
So here is how it works. For example, if I search “Property Agency Singapore”, I will do this:
If I want to manually select results to add, I click:
We originally built this tool to recruit >40,000 vendors for our e-procurement marketplace. But now we are making it available for everyone. If you do sales or merchant acquisition, this tool is for you. Seeing is believing. Experience the difference HERE.
