Email Verification Services

SOLVE
Community Superstar

Hello HubSpot Community,

 

A nice HubSpot client who generates leads mainly by phone is struggling with typos in email addresses while on the phone and needs help. Is this a good use case for an email verification service?

 

Was wondering if anyone's worked with an email address verification service like Kickbox and if your experience with their service or similar services was good, bad, ugly, whatever ...

 

Appreciate all comments &/or PMs. Thanks in advance.

 

Best,

Frank

Hope that helps.

 

Best,
Frank

Hi @MFrankJohnson,

 

Great question! 

 

Is the issue specifically that she is having difficulty typing the email addresses while she is on the phone with them? Email validation services would only confirm she didn't email invalid email addresses, however if these are valid leads that she is already in communication with (through phone calls), then (in my opinion) the issue is with ensuring that she is getting the email address while she is on the phone. 

 

In this case, I would recommend either confirming their email address through a form submission, or confirming the email is valid by sending a follow up email right away. Additional workarounds could include sending a meetings link, or looking up their company domain first, and then all the client needs to confirm is the pattern of their email address within the Company (first initial and last name, full name, etc.). 

 

Again, this just my opinion. Want to pull in some other subject matter experts to see what they think as well. 

 

@ajwiggins85@dan_sitton@Brandsensations do you have any thoughts on this? 

 

Thanks,
Jenny

So, for single e-mail verification, I like to use this free tool: https://verify-email.org. However, depending on how the call goes the only way to ensure that the e-mail is 100% correct is to have the rep send an e-mail on the phone and verbally verify delivery. Some might find this a little overbearing, but if you have an introduction e-mail template that can be ready to be sent that process from creating the account to sending the intro e-mail is very quick.

 

My concern with just using an e-mail verification tool is that it only verifies that the e-mail address is a correct one, not that the e-mail is correct for the person. Tools like Datanyze have some of this information stored for contacts, but I like that tool much better for prospecting than verifying since the e-mails on file for them might have a low confidence score.

 

I know this doesn't really answer your question, but I hope it helps.
