How to Get Emails of your prospectus in SMMA?
So, there are many strategies that are used by SMMA agency owners like buying emails, collecting them from websites etc. The one I like is by going to google maps and searching for them. Here’s how it’s done…
- Let’s assume your agency specialises in working with dentists. If you do not know why selecting a niche is important then CLICK HERE.
- Ok now, go to google maps and search for dentists in your targeted area like AMERICA, CANADA or any country.
3. Now you have list of all the dentists in ohio who are their in ohio.
4. Now you can scrape all these dentists and get their E-mails. There are many scrappers in the market but most preferred are hunter.io and data miner.
5. Make a list of all these emails. BUT DONOT START THEM SENDING MESSAGES.
TIP : You should take a list of 1000 top cities of a country and after scraping all of them you should go to smaller cities.
Verify the Emails
If you have done scraping all the email, it is very important to verify them all by using software like neverbounce (its paid) or you can also use free one they also provide decent support.
Why should you verify all the E-mails? If you donot verify the emails there’s a high chance that you get banned on all the platforms like google, yahoo and outlook.

What to send /Type to get Client Fast
f you are also confused that what to send them, what to write ? Here’s the thing!
You can say:

Reply with a Quick “Yes” with your best phone number if you can handle (service name).

How many E-mails should you send?
I cannot stress enough but when it comes to E-mails QUANTITY is te KEY to get your first client. Send at least 1000 of E-mail per day. Donot expect to get client by sending 10 emails and waitng for their reply. To make this all automatic you should hire a VA. If you donot know what a VA do CLICK HERE.
