Hunter reason 2

Reason 3

All link building tools, brought together.

Hunter does not include a content search feature, requiring you to devise alternative methods for prospecting. This is not an issue with Respona. When setting up your campaign, Respona helps with:

  • Identifying relevant websites for collaboration
  • Discovering contacts across an entire domain
  • Real-time email verification

Of course, if you already have a list of prospects you may just import it, or run additional manual searches.
