I’m back, sales warriors, and I’ve got a secret for you: Facebook isn't just for scrolling through cat memes and stalking your high school crushes.

With nearly 3 billion users, Facebook can be a goldmine for finding email addresses and reaching out to potential leads. It’s especially powerful if you’re in relevant groups related to your industry.

In this article, I’ll show you 4 ways you can use Facebook to find those elusive email addresses and make those all-important connections.

Let's get started!

How to Find Emails on Facebook

1) Yes, You Can Find Emails on Facebook Manually

Sometimes you just gotta roll up your sleeves and do it yourself.

If you're looking for email addresses on Facebook, the good news is that you don't always need a fancy tool or app. All you need is some patience, persistence, and a dash of good old-fashioned detective work.

Here’s what you need to do to manually find an email address on Facebook:

  • Go to the person’s profile by clicking either their avatar or name. You can also type their name into the search bar.
  • On their profile, go to About and scroll to the Contact and basic info section.
  • There, you will see the email address, along with other info like phone numbers and websites.

4) Just Ask!

Sometimes the best way to get someone's email address is to simply ask for it!

While this may seem like a bold move, it can actually be a very effective way to warm up a lead and start building a relationship.

When you message a lead directly and ask for their email address, you're showing them that you're interested in connecting with them on a deeper level and that you're willing to put in the effort to make that happen.

Of course, this approach is not foolproof, and not everyone is open to sharing their email address right away. But if you approach the conversation with a friendly, non-salesy tone and make it clear that you're genuinely interested in learning more about their needs and challenges, you may be surprised at how receptive some leads can be.

Here’s the best piece of advice I can give with this one– avoid coming across as spammy or pushy. Instead of bombarding them with requests for their contact information, try to build rapport and establish a connection first.

Once you've established familiarity, you can gently ask if they'd be willing to share their email address so you can follow up with them later.

While it may not be the most efficient method for finding email addresses, asking leads directly for their contact information can be a great way to get your foot in the door.
