Connecting with Persons Unknown

September 22nd, 2015

Every now and then, you will need to or want to reach someone whom you’ve never met. Luckily, this is a simple feat to accomplish with the help of the Internet. By being resourceful, you should be able to contact most individuals. Here’s how to reach someone without knowing his/her contact information.

Look at Their LinkedIn Profile.

The first step to contacting someone for whom you don’t have any contact information is to look at his/her LinkedIn profile. This is helpful because it will reveal whether or not you have any mutual connections with them. If you do, you can ask your mutual connection to introduce the two of you via LinkedIn. If you don’t have any mutual connections, you may be able to find out their personal website or e-mail directly from their LinkedIn page.

Google Them.

If you can’t find any information via LinkedIn, you can always Google that person. If they have a common name, try adding their school or a recent job in conjunction with the Google search. This will help pull up results that are only specific to them and their experience. Through this method, you may be able to find more information or websites that could possibly lead to their e-mail address or phone number.

Seek Out Social Media Accounts.

Through the Googling method, you can always seek out their social media accounts. Keep in mind that many people don’t use their full first and last name on social media accounts to promote privacy. If you know details about them, you can enter them into the Facebook or Twitter search bar to make your search much easier. If you find their information, don’t hesitate to send them a Facebook message or a Tweet asking for their e-mail address.

Make an Educated Guess.

If all else fails, you can always make an educated guess. Many people use the major e-mail providers, such as Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail. If you want to try variations of their first and last name, you might just get lucky! Incorrect email will be delivered back to you, and your recipient will never know you tried to send an e-mail to that e-mail address.
