As you may have noticed (and if not, don’t worry, your turn will come 🙂 ), LinkedIN has been deploying a new release of their user interface, which limits the number of connection invitations to merely around 100 / week, which means 14 / day. If you’re an intensive LinkedIN user, be it for sales, recruiting, partnership, event planning purposes, you are certainly aware of the fact that in order to send a message to a new prospect, you first need to send him a connection invite, and then wait until he/she accepts you as a 1st degree connection. Only then can you finally contact him/her. Well, before, you could theoretically get in touch with 100 of your prospects / day, now only with 100 / week!
If you haven’t noticed this yet, this is only because as with all their new releases, LinkedIN will deploy them progressively over all their user database, just to make sure there’s no major glitch along the way. So you’ll be able to benefit from the old conditions a couple of days, maybe weeks, and then you’ll be switched to the new LinkedIN version, just like anyone else.
Are you going to divide your prospecting pipeline by 7? Earn 7 times less bonuses at the end of the month because you’ll sell 7 times less? Hire 7 times less people? Grow your business 7 times slower than you used to?!?
Well, the great news is that here at GetEmail.io, we have the solution to this problem. In fact, this has never been a problem for people who use GetEmail.io. Here’s the thing: our tool GetEmail.io will “guess” the email address of any prospect on LinkedIN based on their sole name & company. So there’s no need for you to be connected to that prospect on LinkedIN to use GetEmail.io and get his/her email address. You’ll then be able to send him/her a regulare email message.
This is, and has always been, a way more efficient solution than the “traditional” reaching out process through LinkedIN :
The traditional LinkedIN invitation process: it has always been limited (before to 100 / day, today to 100 / week). Not everybody answers positively to your invitations to connect, so your real success rate is much lower in fact. It is a heavy manual process, with lots of steps, a total waste of time and loss of productivity (invite people to connect, verify they’re connected, send them a message). If you wanted to follow up in case of lack of response, you had to add yet another layer of complexity, and verify if people answered in first place after say 1 week, and follow up accordinly.
The “new, trendy GetEmail.io + LinkedIN prospecting process”: you visit the LinkedIN profiles you want to prospect, and then with one click you find out their email address thanks to GetEmail.io. The prospect email is automatically stored in your GetEmail.io account, and you have them all in 1 place. You can then completely automate your process, that is download that database under the form of a CSV, and inject in wherever you need, in your CRM, in your Marketing Automation Tool, in your Newsletter Service, you name it. No more hurdles and never-ending manual processing for your leads!
So, what are you waiting for, log in to test.getemail.io and start using our service, it’s free for basic use!

Nous espérons que ce “petit coup de pouce” de notre part aidera les TPE/PME concernées à s’adapter un peu mieux à la situation actuelle.
Trop occupés pour faire des relations presse, un grand merci à Capterra & Gartner pour avoir identifié notre potentiel, un grand merci pour leur article sur les 10 logiciels française à suivre, dont GetEmail.io fait partie :
Some potential users feel threatened by GetEmail.io, because we “help marketers SPAM” people, so they say. While these fears are totally understandable, this could not be further from the truth. Let’s look a bit closer into this.
First, let’s see the definition of SPAM: “Spamming is the use of messaging systems to send an unsolicited message (spam) to large numbers of recipients for the purpose of commercial advertising” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spamming). This definition implies 2 notions: 1. unsolicited message 2. large numbers of recipients.
Now, let’s look at how GetEmail.io works, by who it is used, and how the pricing works. Our service can only be used to find professional email addresses, never consumer ones. It is used by Marketing, Sales & Recruiting Agencies, for business purposes. We offer a free service for basic use, up to 10 email requests / month, and then paid plans, which span from $49 to $399 / month for intensive users.
Finally, here’s why GetEmail.io cannot be used for SPAM:
-because our service is only used in B2B, and not B2C, there aren’t that many prospects by market (for example, you have billions of consumers to be sold iPhones for example, but only a thousands of hospitals worldwide for a pharmaceutical company). So by definition, you can’t send “large numbers” of emails.
-because almost all the time, B2B markets have so few prospects, that they need to highly personalize their approach, and target them wisely, to protect their reputation
-suppose a “crazy dude” would decide to use GetEmail.io for SPAM purposes. Because it would be SPAM, he would first have to purchase large numbers of emails, which would cost a lot of money (remember, GetEmail.io is free for 10 credits / month, but is a paid service for intensive use). Because it would be untargeted SPAM, the conversion rates would be very low, so those SPAM emails would generate a small revenue. So, at the then of the day, he would spend a lot of money on purchasing emails, but he would generate a small revenue. His business would never be profitable.
GetEmail.io is structurally built to avoid SPAM. It’s more than a question of morality or legality, it’s just too costly to use GetEmail.io for SPAM, it’s not profitable.
As a matter of fact, GetEmail.io is used by B2B companies, to get in touch with small and hightly targeted B2B leads. This is why it works, this is the only way to make it efficient and profitable.

The larger the company’s development is, the more difficult it is to innovate and act rapidly in terms of growth. However, this rule does not apply to the team of Marc Benioff and Salesforce.com. They are still ranked as the top 3 in Forbes’ list of the world’s most innovative companies, with a 24.88% of sales growth in 12 months(2017). For these few years, it has secured its position.
In terms of scale, it is almost impossible to imagine that Salesforce.com was a company that had only been listed for 14 years. The number of their employees increased from 500 to 29,000. There is no doubt that they have a different point of view when building their business model and methods when they contact new prospects.
The most important thing to a successful sales process: innovative prospecting without cold calling.
Some tips for email marketing:
Check your email response rates
Do not except an instant response, it generally takes 2-4 weeks to develop new leads
Make sure the timing to contact/ talk is correct
Find out what kind of emails are responded and why
If people are not interested, find out the reason
Do not give up easily, unless you were refused by the decision maker
Always follow up a next step
Cold calling 2.0 :Nowadays people are more resistance to the kind of traditional cold prospecting, therefore, the Cold calling 2.0 framework was introduced in the book of Aaron Ross, “Predictable Revenue”. How this new framework differs from the traditional prospecting is, instead of cold calls, doing researches before contacting people,making referral calls will gain you more leads. Besides, sending short and sweet emails instead of long letters and emails will give the potential customers a better impression.
In addition, having more salesperson in the team will not definitely help growing the revenue. In fact, the training program a company provided to the sales reps is relatively more important. When the sales are highly committed to the values and culture of the company, they could present the products in a more natural way during the business selling processes.
Salesforce.com’s business development strategy
Some tips for the sales managers:
Treat your team members like your customers
Train the sales reps and give them time and opportunities to practice their presentation skills
The quality is more important than the quantity
Learn to listen and give the right support to your team members
One of the key to the success of Salesforce.com is the ability to win customers from large organizations. To win over customers, companies must provide strong incentives and a reliable image.
In the beginning of the business, Benioff insisted on setting up a foundation for charity activities. He setted up a 1:1:1 principle, that is donating 1 percent of the company’s shares, one percent of the annual profits and one percent of the employees’ time to do charitable activities to give back to society. With these activities, it gained good reputation for his company and also earned more support.
Benioff created his own strategic management method, with “V-2-Mom”, this tool created by Benioff, can show the road map of each of the Salesforce products.This is a combination of operational concepts and products. For Benioff, “trust” from the customers is more than anything, even though you have a nice product, without the trust, customers do not stay long, the key to gain trust, is to first have employees who trusts themselves and the organization commitment that they are being an important part of the firm.

Chatting robots, a computer program designed to simulate conversation with human users, especially over the internet. In fact, what they can do, by all means, is not just chatting with the user. Chatbots can develop tools with different functions according to the builder’s different purposes. This also shows that in addition to chat, chatbots also have greater potential waiting to be developed.
Grand View Research. n.d. Size of the chatbot market worldwide, in 2016 and 2025 (in million U.S. dollars). Statista.
For example, for companies, chatbot is a gracious and intelligent brand spokesperson who can introduce visitors to the company’s top technology, data mining and supporting the human resource. From the merchants’ aspect, chatbot is a caring and efficient shopkeeper, it can recommend the most suitable journey and investment project for visitors. Chatbots which can directly and intuitively start interaction without additional installation, can of course be an assistant who integrates physical location information, providing exhibition guides, on-site promotions.
Chatbots & Artificial Intelligence
In short, because of the popularity of chatbot technology, for the first time, people can easily apply “artificial intelligence” to the community and business. Therefore, the marketing staff of the operating community can obtain technical support, technical person can also get a community of practical skills.
For the chatbot to have enough wisdom to talk with the customers, there must still be technical support such as machine learning and deep learning. However, the recent attention of these two technologies and the many open source communities that have emerged in succession have made machine learning possible. The development of such fields as deep learning has made great progress in recent years.
As a result, artificial intelligence has long been a distant dream. Now when you want to build a chatbot, you no longer have to grope, construct, or train an artificial intelligence engine from scratch. You can establish the goal of a chat robot and devote its energy to a deeper level.
Some of the best intelligent Chatbots online you may like to chat with :
Poncho: A messenger designed bot, it is very friendly and helpful for daily life, it can even send alerts about the condition of the weather. https://poncho.is
Andy: Andy chatbot was customized for learning English, except the chatting function, it also gives out grammar lessons and vocabulary every day. https://andychatbot.com/
Examples of companies that have adapted chatbots
JPMorgan Chase: Their bot, COIN, is able to analyse the legal contracts more efficiently than human lawyers, this bot has helped them saved more than 360,000 hours of manpower! As for the future, they are aiming to use the bots to establish some new sources of revenue.
Asos: By using the messenger chatbot, Asos has increased their annual orders by 300%, at the same time they managed to reach 35% more potential customers.
KLM: By implementing the messenger chatbot, KLM has increased 40% of their interactions with customers, 15% of the customers download their boarding pass on the chatbot. The chatbot integration did not only increased their revenue, but also increased the brand loyalty.
How will chatbots be impacting the human workforce?
While chatbots becomes more and more useful, companies started to implement this tool into different departments with different usages. At the same time, it impacts the workforce in different levels.
Customer services:In terms of customer services, Drift’s chatbot report has stated that, most of the customers now prefer to communicate with a chatbot in several circumstances. When they wanted to get a quick response, when they are searching an answer for a simple question or the ability to get a 24-hour service.However, shown in the survey, in some of the situations, people still prefer to communicate with a human. For instance, while dealing with complex problems, the customers would rather talk to an expert such as an engineer. Besides, people feel more ease while communicating with people in the phone, email or live chat.Indeed, it is efficient to use chatbots as a supplement to the human workforce, however, it doesn’t mean to replace all of them. As while chatbots cannot replace emails and phone, businesses will still need human when it comes to answering the technical and complex questions.
Human Resource department:For the HR department, nowadays, chatbots are already performing some basic HR roles. The most common feature will be the FAQs, when employees are asking questions such as “How many holidays do I have left?” or “When is the next pay day?”.Except of the chat function, chatbots can also be used in assisting the recruiting process, on boarding and training, schedule meetings and company policies questions.The change doesn’t mean that the jobs that are related to HR is under a threat, however, it means that humans have to change their roles in some ways and work on more important strategic tasks.
Chatbots: The future of training?
While chatbots are normally being seen as a standardized service with regular conversations. In fact, chatbots are now developing into a wider scope of application:
New employee on boarding and training
New manager training
Diversity and inclusion training
It has been proved that, nowadays, people expect the online service to be instant, their questions and their requests can ideally be handled immediately. That’s why chatbots now have an important role. Not only providing the instant reply, a 24-hour service and also giving the answers to simple questions consumers might have. Indeed, technology improves the speed, automation and efficiency in the workforce. Which means that people have to re-position their roles given the more time and chance to focus on the more value-based tasks.
