How to Find ANY Email Address Contact in 2 Minutes




Whether you are an experienced salesman looking for leads or a young kid looking to get in touch with a CEO, finding their email addresses is difficult and time-consuming. But I’ve discovered a neat little trick that can help you find any email address contact you need in 2 minutes tops. It has worked for me 90% of my time selling at Tint to Fortune 500 executives, reaching out to huge press outlets, and even getting in touch with prominent investors!

Here’s what you need to do:

1) Get a Gmail account and download Rapportive on it (

2) “Connect your social networks” on the top right hand corner after installing Rapportive.

3) Click “Compose” on the left hand side.

After installing Rapportive, connect your social networks and click Compose.


Now here comes the fun part. Basically how Rapportive works is if you enter in a person’s valid email address, the side of the email will show the person’s social networks, general location, etc. Rapportive is meant to be a widget to give you supplemental information on a person you’re emailing, but I found out that you can take this one step further: find any person’s email address through trial-and-error until the person’s information appears.

Now start guessing the email address and click out of the To: field after you try. Through many trial and errors I have done myself, I found out that there are 6 combinations you can try to find it and they take < 2 minutes. Let’s say I want to find Ben Gold’s email and he works at .

The 6th one is one I found out works surprisingly well. Go see if they have a Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn username. Copy that username and add,, or to the end of it.
