We’re getting back to our Prospect List Building Tools series. It’s vol. 9, in which we’re presenting the tool called Find That Email. I’ve had the pleasure to interview Sagi Strauss – the founder of the service, who told me more about himself and the tool he’s been creating. Keep reading to learn how you could use Find That Email in your cold outreach workflow.
About Find That Email
Find That Email is a solution including web application with Chrome extension that allows you to find emails and other contact details while prospecting on LinkedIn or company websites. The tool provides email address verification as well, so you can use it to check if your email list includes only valid records.
The tagline on their home page reads: “The Yellow Pages of Email,” which I think gives a pretty good idea of what the app is all about. The company has been founded by Sagi Strauss in Israel.
‘I worked in the Israel Defense Forces for 3 years in the Cyber Security department before working on a number of startups as head of product and marketing.’ – Sagi recounts. ‘We have a small team and we are bootstrapped at the moment. The company is based out of Israel. We have 1 employee in Israel and a remote employee from India.’

Our experience with Find That Email
THINGS WE LOVED
The Chrome extension
The Chrome extension is well designed and fits nicely into the screen when you’re browsing people on LinkedIn. You can get the people’s email addresses instantly, or add them to your list in the dashboard. The contacts get added there instantly, though you have to refresh the dashboard to have the list updated.
The efficiency of email search
On your list in Find That, you can filter the verified emails from the ones that are still in the verification process. All the emails in my test list were over 70% likely to be valid, most of them over 85% likely. The numbers look amazing. I only wish there was an explanation of the % value directly in the app, or in other words – I’d like to know exactly what it means for an email address to be 85% likely to be valid in comparison to an email that is 100% likely to be valid.
The well-prepared API section
This is something unique for this type of tools, which is why I decided to mention it here. In the Find That Email dashboard, you’ll find a tab called API. In this tab, you’ll find the details required for API integration, divided into available actions you can perform through API. I think it’s much more convenient than a classic API doc.
THINGS THAT STILL CAN BE IMPROVED
The access to all features during the trial period
Unfortunately, during the free trial period, you won’t be able to test out all the plugin functions. With the free trial, I couldn’t add contacts to my list via the plugin. I know the range of the options available during the trial is a matter of business approach, and I respect that. But as a user, I’d like to have a chance to test out all the features before I decide to upgrade my account.
The lack of duplicate detection
I’ve carried out a test in which I’ve tried adding the same people twice to my list of prospects. I’ve tried it both in the plugin search on LinkedIn and in the domain search, and in both cases, the duplicate contact has been added to my list of contacts. As a user, I’d like to get informed when I’m trying to add the same contact for the second time.
The access to the knowledge base
Find That Email has a nicely prepared knowledge base with some instructions and FAQs. You can easily navigate to it from their home page, but I couldn’t seem to find the link to it once being logged in to the dashboard. That would be a nice thing to have. Additionally, an easy jump from the Chrome plugin to the knowledge base would be great as well.
To sum up
- Find That Email is a solution including web app as well as Chrome extension which allows you to find emails and other contact details while prospecting on LinkedIn or on company websites.
- The tool also allows you to verify lists of email addresses, to make sure you reduce your bounce rate. You can upload an email list as a .csv file.
- The address finding efficiency is satisfactory. Most of the addresses you get from Find That are scored 75-100% in terms of likelihood of being valid.
- The price per contact isn’t the lowest in comparison to the prices offered by competitors, but it’s reasonable considering the high efficiency and the option to verify previously collected email addresses.
- There is a free trial, but it doesn’t allow you to try out all the options available within the paid plans. It’s worth taking a shot, though.
- The API section available directly in the dashboard makes things easier for those users who consider API integration.
Hope this post will help you decide in Find That Email would fit into your outbound prospecting process. If you haven’t tried them yet, use the free trial option and take it for a test ride.

6 Resources to Help You Build Contact Base for Cold Emailing
Obviously, any cold email campaign cannot exist without prospects. So as soon as we're ready to get about crafting our cold emails, we also need to find our prospects' adressees. In step one, we define the profile of our ideal prospect. But in step two, it's time to look for some actual contact data. First and foremost, we need our prospect's email address, name and company. Then, we can find some more information to personalize our emails. In this post, I give you 6 resources that we found helpful when building our prospecting process. Hope you will find them helpful as well.
What Does “Ideal” Really Mean in the Ideal Customer Profile?
We treat ICP (ideal customer profile) seriously at Woodpecker. We constantly work on the profile and try to keep it updated. That's not an easy task, because the profile evolves as the company grows and the business situation changes. Our Customer Success Team runs regular meetings concerning ICP. On one of those meetings, we realized that the "ideal" may actually be a set of various traits, depending on the point of view. See what we've figured out in terms of defining our ideal customer profile.
How I wrote a cold email that got a 50% reply rate
Not 50% open rate, mind you. 50% REPLY rate. That means half of the people I wrote to actually replied to me. And 100% of those were kind replies. Not “leave me alone” or “unsubscribe” kind of replies. I started some nice conversations and got a couple of people on Skype – which was the purpose of my email. Here’s my exact copy and some comments on how I constructed it.
