Alternative Way to Contact Someone


Getting in touch with a person can be a challenge. First, you need to find their correct business email address. If you have luck with that, you will need to break through the clutter of their inbox or perhaps get through a person’s administrative assistant who may not be inclined to connect you. I want to share an alternative way of contacting someone when you aren’t getting anywhere.

Many executives, founders, and other people have their own personal websites. I think this is especially true for founders and executives at Internet startups who have operated a number of businesses. Some update  their personal websites regularly, and others use them simply as a means of sharing their biographies.

What I have regularly found is that the Whois information can be helpful in finding someone’s personal contact information. Additionally, the contact form may also be helpful. By not emailing a corporate email address, it may be easier to get in touch directly with the person I am trying to reach.

One word of caution though. Some people may be annoyed that you contacted them using their personal email address. In addition, sending unsolicited email can also pose an issue depending on where you are located.

It can be tough to get in touch with someone that you don’t know. Using the information from their personal website may be an effective way to reach someone.

  1. It is true and complicated but if your interest to get you to seek financial person more range to reach your destination you email in my case was the CEO of a major company US the email I write in 2005 Mr. Bill Gates, through email was the CFO of Microsoft.

    Spend days and give up on themselves and receive email from Mr. Bill Gates from his @ three-page write in their response expatiated.

    The matter did not hide was more research development and innovation of fashionable clothes, having studied and read a lot artificial intelligence, robotics and virtual reality of the writers of the US and published in US to my 16 years old when I started to get interested science I start buying second hand books late 40s and early 50s, the project that I have created in 1996 (Internet came to Spain) at the end could not be because Mr. Bill Gates to have work until his retirement I think it was in 2008

    It’s good to prove nothing is lost and the whois is also interesting if you must write more lightly like you’re in summer in stifling heat, who receives it passes quickly if you do not suffocate the person you send email ( this choking is a form of expression holds a scare to see who it is for the email.
