Top 5 cheap lead generation tools

Email has always been a powerful tool for marketers. You may argue that email marketing is now more complicated than ever due to GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), but the truth is that it’s still by far the best tool for generating leads.

But here comes the hard part. Finding emails of a targeted audience may be a challenging task, but luckily there are tools to help us out. Here is my comprehensive list of a tool list that I’ve been using which offers both excellent quality product and low pricing, but most importantly most of the providers include a free (limited use) plan so you can try them out before committing to a paid plan.

  1. Oxyleads

One of my favorite tools at the moment, It’s a cloud-based lead generation and digital prospecting platform that can help find companies and people based on the industry, revenue and other helpful keywords and metrics. Contact lists can be generated and exported.

Pricing plans:

  • 5 free email credits per week, 100 prospecting searches. Paid plans range from $100 — to a custom plan.
  • Additional features: Chrome Extension, Web App.

2. Hunter.io

What it does is provide online data to create connections between professionals. Its primary purpose is to find targeted email addresses from the first name, last name and company, listing all the email addresses available on the web. There’s one issue though — they took away the integration with LinkedIn. Without it, the resource has limited use and is cumbersome to use.

Pricing plans:

  • The free plan is 100 Search Credits. Paid plans range from $49 — $399 with a maximum of 50,000 Search credits.
  • Additional features: Chrome Extension, Web App.

3. Clearbit

It’s yet another web-enabled marketing software that gathers information about people and companies. It helps you find professional information like company employee email addresses. One thing worth mentioning — sometimes, the information Clearbit returns is inaccurate and outdated, would love if they worked on that.

Pricing plans:

  • The free plan is 50 Search Credits. Paid plans range from $199 — $999 and are categorized as Enrichment, Reveal, Risk, and Prospect.
  • Additional features: Can be integrated into CRMs and other tools.

4. Find That Email

As with any lead generation tool, entering a name or a domain will get the needed email address along with the sources where the email addresses were obtained.

Pricing plans:

  • The free plan has 50 Search Credits and 100 Verify Credits. Paid plans range from $29 — $999, with maximum 100,000 Search Credits and 500,000 Verify Credits.
  • Additional features: Chrome Extension, Web App.

5. Anymail finder

You have the option of searching for a specific individual or searching for emails associated with a domain. If one thing is missing is the information on how to use the application.

Pricing plans:

  • 20 free verified email searches. Paid plan range from $49-$449.
  • Additional features: Has no additional tools.

These tools serve many different purposes: Marketing/SEO outreach, sales, HR. Use them wisely and see your business grow!
