II. The Collector of Email Addresses in the Files Stored on PC
Source: files on user computer
Tool: Atomic Email Logger
Yes. the Internet is not the only way to get necessary contacts. Your computer may be a great source to collect email addresses. Surprised? Don’t be.
For example, real-life situation: I have a friend who runs his own gaming website. He is totally crazy about games, keeps upgrading his computer about once a month, and has over 200 games installed on his machine. He started a small game reviews website as a hobby but the website kept growing more and more popular, so he decided to turn his hobby into the business.
The only way to make money off a gaming website is to sell games or ad space. So, he needed to contact game manufacturers first. It took him about three days to look through every game he had installed to find an appropriate email address. He could have done it in minutes if he had Atomic Email Logger.
How does it help? The program is designed to gather emails from your files. It can do it with virtually any type of file – text, HTML, graphics, even executable files! Atomic Email Logger can be useful as for office managers, HR and marketing departments, editors, journalists, as for other professionals.
III. Emails in the Private Newsgroups. How to Collect?
Newsgroups – are communities of people who are interested in different topics.
For example, the newsgroup devoted to the discussion of mobile games. Now imagine, you are an owner of young IT company, specializing in the development of the mobile apps and games. You have just released a new product and are looking for potential customers. How useful for you would be the contacts of young gamers?
You can spend hours manually searching for this information, or let the specialized program make it all instead of you. One of such programs is Atomic Newsgroup Extractor.
How does it help? Atomic Newsgroup Explorer extracts contacts from UseNet newsgroups: namely, email addresses and usernames. Searching for email addresses in messages on NNTP servers, it can extract the user name if it appears in the source message.
“He who seeks always finds”. Every day we try to make AtomPark Software products better for unlimited contacts search which user needs.
