|At Sourcing Summit Europe, my session was focused on how email campaigns can be an incredible method of building relationships with new potential candidates – but only if done correctly. So I wanted to share my method of building email lists quickly.
This hack comes with an anti-spam warning – do not abuse it!
This process is going to help you scrape a list of potential candidates that you have found, then generate email addresses automatically for those candidates.
I’m going to use three different tools for this, so make sure you have an account with each before you start.
- Blockspring – free trial for 14 days, $10 / month afterwards.
- At the same time, you will enable Blockspring in your spreadsheet programme of choice – Excel or Google Sheets. Functionality isn’t really affected (although I prefer Google Sheets).
- EmailHippo – free account is sufficient for our needs.
- IMPORT.IO – free account is sufficient for our needs.
Link your Blockspring account to EmailHippo by clicking the connect button thispage.
Use IMPORT.IO to scrape a list of potential candidates that you have found. I created a quick video that tells you how to do this.
