Acquiring your potential customers e-mail addresses is a cornerstone of successful e-marketing. This innovative software allows extracting e-mail addresses from your target-audience relevant web sites.
Pros: Marketing through the internet, specifically via the e-mails is a very low cost option yet the benefits could be high. Thus it is a high ROI option for marketing. Targeted e-mailing could be more effective than any other direct mail processes. So the next step is to collect relevant e-mail addresses. One could buy such lists from mailing list vendors but they are not specific enough most often and could be outdated. This package helps extract e-mail addresses from websites of specific areas one wants to target. Besides specifying the URL of a specific site, one could specify keywords too. Then the application would go though a set of sites relevant to the keywords. You can type in the desired keywords and Hunter will gather the top ranked pages directly from Google (or other search engines you choose) and then will be searching through those pages for emails. Additionally you could specify URL skipping filter, URL limiting filter and a page content filter.
The hunting process starts after a hunt URL or keywords are specified in the text field provided. Filters can be set through options. You can specify if only the current site be checked or all links should be pursued or current and subfolders also to be checked through. Depth level also can be specified. You then specify the criterion when a URL is to be skipped or limited to, page content filters are defined on this options page too. Atomic Email Hunter is capable of using proxies and identifying itself to web servers as a specified user agent. The address list can be saved in a disk, exported to clipboard, Excel or Word files for verification, editing etc. If the list is ready for work to start you could simply pass the list to the e-mail sender built in or to the email verifier or the filter that filters emails by country. Being threads based the application can be speeded up depending on processor power available.
Cons: One should be absolutely clear about if one should be sending emails to each one of his list and remember that CAN-SPAM regulations apply.
Overall: An easy to use e-mail extraction tool addressing a vital need. This is easily a 3 star package.
