Are you a search fund entrepreneur looking for the right tools and processes for effective cold outreach?

Here's what I use and recommend for the past several years, and I'd love to hear your thoughts too!

1.) Finding businesses: Use LinkedIn Sales Navigator for well-structured companies, and Google search for local businesses.

2.) Identifying key contacts: Check company websites, LinkedIn profiles, or Google search for finding key contacts in local directories.

3.) Finding email addresses: Use, Hunter, Google search for email patterns, and NeverBounce for verification. For local businesses, check their Facebook pages.

4.) Sending emails: You can send emails one by one, use Mail Merge, or leverage email campaign software.

5.) Tracking deals: Use a spreadsheet for low deal flow or a CRM for higher deal flow management.

⭐ BONUS: Personalize your email campaigns with the help of ChatGPT, which can generate tailored content to make your messages stand out and resonate with recipients.
