Table of content

Сold calling is a simple but still efficient strategy that is preferred by more than 50% of C-level & VP buyers.

But in order to find prospects' phone numbers, you need to follow some rules so that the search doesn’t violate the boundaries of individuals' privacy or law.

I’ll tell you more about email phone lookup and show you the simplest ways to get a phone number associated with an email to more advanced methods to use search tools to help grow sales and business, so you can choose the best option.

Why is it even possible to find a phone by email address?

A person's business email address and phone number are usually linked because people leave this info when signing up for various online services and subscribing to newsletters or professional platforms.

This connection allows the system to merge this data and you can search for business mobile phones by email address.

The «must know» rules before you start finding a phone number from an address (email)

  • Choose only reputable sites that respect user privacy
  • Use the information for business purposes only
  • Before you find a phone number by email – use Email Verifier

Find a phone number by email address via reputable sites that respect user privacy

Only use websites with a good reputation that provide access to the services according to the Privacy Policy.

The main thing for search is to use platforms that provide data that can be distributed - public data that has been authorized by the person, not personal ways of contact. That's why I emphasize when I write that we are talking about business email addresses and mobile phone numbers.

Campbell Tourgis, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Wainbee:

«Employ a CRM with a B2B Database. Contact databases are repositories of contact information, including job titles, company names, phone numbers, and email addresses across digital platforms.

At Wainbee, we use CRM software with a B2B contact database, providing us with a legitimate list of prospect phone numbers without violating privacy laws. We save a significant amount of time and effort in lead validation, prospecting, and nurturing because the system automatically updates contact information, especially when integrated with external sources or application programming interfaces (APIs).»

So, yes, you can find a phone number by email, but always be mindful of privacy issues and restrictions.

Not all business cell phone numbers of prospects are public and accessible, and if you can't find them on a reputable search platform like GetProspect, which provides users with data according to privacy policies and rules (only public data), you probably can't find them anywhere. 

Unless you find them on websites that provide non-public data… Those sites that offer you personal contacts, not public data, disseminate information that can not be disseminated according to the rules. Contacting a person on such a phone number will not give a positive response, in addition, it is a direct law violation.

Use the info for business purposes only

When you have received a number of business phone numbers of potential customers, use them for their intended purpose. Segment your target audience, maximize your cold calling script to interest the person, and make a really useful offer.

Don’t find phone numbers by email for personal use, for spamming calls, and so on. Always respect a person's privacy and do not break any laws when searching for their phone number. 

Before you find a phone number by email – use Email Verifier

You won't get any results if you search for prospects' phone numbers from invalid email addresses. That's why it's a good idea to verify email correctness in good time. You can do it both individually and in bulk with the GetProspect Email Verifier.
