How to find out which of these tools is best?

It’s great when you see a tool providing you with a free email of that LinkedIn profile, right? A slight shot of dopamine’s hits you when you see that green light, indicating that the email for that person was found. You are an email away from closing that deal you are chasing for. Well, hold your horses. Not all emails are accurate. Some tools even camouflage the accuracy, luring you into using the tool.

None of the tools is actually able to vouch for 100% for the email accuracy. You will have to learn about that for your self by

  1. Check online reviews – make sure it’s based on sufficient number of reviewers
  2. Pick the top 3 tools and run a test for yourself
    The best way to do that is to gather 100 emails with each tool from a very similar target audience and run the campaign with the same email provider. You will see how many of those emails bounced back and in which group has the highest open rate. You can tolerate the bounce rates between 0-5%, anything above that – is a no go.

Conclusion

As much as we respect the solutions of competitive tools, there is a reason why we decided to develop Prospect Role. A tool like that should be affordable and most of all accurate. Of course, we have pretty subjective opinions but Prospect Role is serving us good and we tend to improve it continuously. Some of its functionality we even share for free with you, our audience.

In the end aim to choose a solution that goes well with your company policies and use cases. If those two conditions are checked, select the one that provides the best user experience for you.
