In a survey, 72% of B2B marketers reveal they achieve “good to excellent” ROI on cold email prospecting. This is why it has to be an integral part of your lead generation strategy. However, getting the emails of your prospects can be a back-breaking task especially if you plan to do it manually. 

So to effectively build an email list, you need to invest in an email scraper tool. This post will outline why you need one and the best email scraping tools available in the market. 

What is an email scraper?

An email scraper tool is software that is designed to identify and extract email addresses from popular websites, business listings, and other online sources. It’s particularly useful for lead generation as you can use these tools to acquire the email addresses of potential leads.  

So if you don’t have a reliable contact list for your sales team, you can use this option. It’s great because it’s a way to get more accurate data faster. You have to ensure you do get these details legally though. 

Is it legal to scrape emails online?

The answer is yes. Since scraping emails is getting information that is already publicly available, it is legal to do so even with a scraping tool. However, you have to comply with legal restrictions on how you can use these details.  

So, you have to respect the owners of these email addresses. Start by verifying the emails to be sure the information isn’t outdated or inactive. It’ll also ensure that you’re messaging the right person and protect your deliverability rates. 

Finally, give them the option to opt out of your emails especially if they aren’t engaging with it. You can do this by including an unsubscribe button on every email. 

10 best email scrappers to use

Not sure about where to start from? Here are the top ten email finding and scraping tools to use as a B2B business.

1. lemlist

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Product Hunt - 4.6/5 (420 reviews), Capterra - 4.6/5 (376 reviews)

lemlist is an all-in-one outreach tool that has an in-built email finder and verifier. Through its waterfall list enrichment method, lemlist ensures you get at least 80% verified emails in your contacts compared to other email scrappers benchmarked at 60%. 

The best part about this email scraping tool is that you get additional information like their company name, industry, and even LinkedIn profiles, if available. You can choose to find them by uploading bulk contacts via a CSV file or using the Chrome extension.

In addition to finding these emails, you can push them directly into your multi-channel campaigns and automate your outreach process. Get free workflow templates and even personalized email content to get started.

With the lemlist Chrome Extension you can scrap your leads' emails. How many emails can you get? 

  • Freemium plan: 100 emails/month
  • Email Starter plan: 150 emails/month
  • Email Pro plan: 200 emails/month
  • Multichanel Expert: 300 emails/month
  • Outreach Scale: 500 emails/month

Additionally, you can also use this email extractor to easily scrap emails from websites or long format texts!

Pricing

14 days free trial, $39/month for email starter, $69/month for email pro, $99/month for multichannel expert and $159/month for outreach scale. 

2. LinkedIn Sales Navigator

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐

G2 - 4.3/5 (1,869 reviews), Gartner - 4.5/5 (683 reviews)

While primarily used for LinkedIn prospecting, this tool can be used to find email addresses. However, the catch is that if there are no emails listed on their LinkedIn profile, you wouldn’t get any for those specific contacts. 

What stands out though, is its recommendation feature on the app that allows you to find leads that fit into your ideal customer profile. It also removes any irrelevant contacts based on the Advanced Lead and company search filters. 

Similar to lemlist, you can also integrate it with your CRM to easily filter and reach out to the contacts acquired. 

Pricing

Free trial, $69.99/month for core, $114.99/month for advanced, custom pricing for advanced pro

3. Hunter.io

Ratings ⭐⭐⭐⭐

G2 - 4.4/5 (540 reviews)

Hunter has an email finder that scrapes email addresses found on the web. The data is compiled in email formats along with verification status so you know which ones are reliable. It also has a bulk finder that allows you to find contacts for a larger database. 

To do this, simply add the domain name of the company or the name of the contact you’re trying to find. A great add-on is that it comes with a Chrome extension making it easy to search when you’re on the website itself. 

Pricing

Free, $49/month for starter, $149/month for growth, $499/month for business.

4. Get Prospect

Ratings ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Capterra - 4.4/5 (91 reviews)

Get Prospect integrates easily with other platforms which is why it can be used to scrape data from Linkedin. After finding your leads using advanced search filters, you can export up to 2,500 leads from the app. 

It also has a Chrome extension you can run on any website to find email addresses and phone numbers associated with a LinkedIn profile or lead. Save these search results and organize them into lists and folders. 

Pricing

Free, $49/month for starters, $99/month for Growth

5. Snov.io

Ratings ⭐⭐⭐⭐

G2 - 4.6/5 (390 reviews)

The Snov Chrome extension and finder web app allow you to upload a list of domains and upload those domains using the bulk domain search feature. You’ll then get a list that you can filter by company, name, industry size, and more. 

There’s also a social URL search function where you can find social profiles and get any email associated with their account. The bulk email search feature is the most popular option because, like most tools on this list, you just upload a file with the name and domain of contacts. 

Pricing

Free trial, $30/month for starter, $75/month for pro, and $3,999/month for managed service

6. Rocket Reach

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

G2 - 4.5/5 (703 reviews)

Designed specifically for finding professional contacts, this is an option for enterprise-scale businesses. Like other options, it offers data like company name, industry, size, location and more in addition to the email addresses. 

However, it has been noted that it can be quite complex to use. This is because of advanced features like filtering based on professional or personal emails, as well as logic for showing emails or phone numbers. It can also get expensive - even more than a Linkedin sales navigator. 

Pricing

Individual plans: $31/month for essentials, $78/month for pro, $197/month for ultimate

Team plans: $66/user/month for Team Pro, $164/user/month for Team Ultimate, custom pricing for others. 

7. Skrapp.io

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐

G2 - 3.9/5 (101 reviews)

This is another service that has a LinkedIn, website and domain search. It scours the internet through a database updated daily, looking for business email addresses associated with a company. 

There’s also a Chrome extension for making it easier to collate leads from Linkedin and Sales Navigator. Most importantly, it has an email verifier tool so after using the lookup function, you can be sure you have a clean database before migrating it to your CRM.

Pricing

Free, $30/month for starter, $75/month for seeker, and $255/month for global. 

8. Clearout

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

G2 - 4.7/5 (182 reviews)

This email finder, extractor, and verifier is a great way to get email addresses from LinkedIn searches and profiles online. Get B2B email addresses by either uploading a CSV or xlsx. file. 

For more manual searches, you can find a contact by just their first name, last name and company name. You can use the LinkedIn Chrome extension to find leads even when you’re not thinking about getting them.

It also comes with an API for developers. The only downside to this service is that it costs 2 credits for an email and 1 credit to verify said email so it can get expensive.

Pricing

$21 for 3,000 credits, $58 for 10,000 credits, $350 for 100,000 credits

9. Aero Leads

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐

G2 - 4/5 (61 reviews), Capterra - 4.5/5 (38 reviews)

Aero Leads uses a database of 500 million business contacts to find and verify email addresses. You can use several filters from location to company, industry and more. The emails are also validated in real-time so you get updated data. 

You can directly scan through the web app’s database to find contacts that match your ideal customer profile or use the  Chrome extension specifically for finding email addresses on LinkedIn. 

Pricing

Free trial, $19/month for takeoff, $49/month for climb, $79/month for cruise, $199/month for enterprise. 

10. Orbitly

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Capterra - 4.8/5 (12 reviews)

This software, like others, allows you to upload a list of contacts or look up a single record to find email addresses, social profiles, phone numbers, and other contact information. 

The spreadsheet you upload can include social media profiles like Linkedin URLs or even Twitter URLs and your spreadsheet will be populated with the rest of the data. After this, you can download the CSV or send emails directly using the built-in CRM. 

Each lookup costs 1 credit and the first one is free. However, for enterprise businesses, it might be more sustainable to have a payment plan. 

Pricing

15 cents per credit

Conclusion

Email scrapers are a valuable and productive tool for B2B lead generation and research. But it’s important to use them ethically and responsibly. Always prioritize data privacy when you do collate them and avoid practices that’ll lead to email spam. 

This is why we recommend using an email warm-up and deliverability tool like lemwarm to help you keep your deliverability score high and land in the primary inboxes.
