Also, you get more details about the emails’ status from the Prospectss Find Email tool. In comparison, Hunter.io’s Email Finder tool shows you emails sometimes having a catch-all status. Emails that have a catch-all status can increase your bounce rate & also may prevent you from sending emails to your leads.

In terms of usage, Prospectss’s Find Email tool can be used for Unlimited once you are subscribed to any paid plan. On the contrary, Hunter.io has a capped limit even on their paid plans.

Comparing the Bulk Email Finding Tools

The time required to use these tools varies depending on the amount of data searched. You can upload a CSV file of 10,000 rows of data on Prospectss. On the other hand, Hunter.io allows you to upload a file of 50,000 rows of data. Prospectss gives you more details about the emails than Hunter.io making it a better alternative.

Both Prospectss’s & Hunter.io’s Author Email Finding tools take approximately about 5 seconds to scrape for emails. The email you get from both Prospectss & Hunter for this tool is 100% accurate. However, Prospectss offers users to find emails associated with the domain if they cannot find the exact author’s email. On the contrary, Hunter.io does not have that option so you cannot find any email associated with the blog. Cherry on top; with Prospectss you can find emails of 5000 authors in the basic plan while with Hunter you can only find 500 emails in their starter plan.

Comparing the Bulk Blog Author Finding Tools

Like the Find Emails tool, both these platforms also offer to find author emails in bulk for a faster rate of data collection.
The time required for both these tools varies depending on the amount of data searched. Users can upload a list of 10,000 blog URLs on both these platforms. With Prospectss you can find emails associated with the domain if it’s unable to find the author’s email. In contrast, Hunter lacks this option making Prospectss a better option in this category.  

Prospectss Blog Author Finder Features:
Author name, author email, author profile link, author image, blog logo, blog name, publisher URL, & downloadable data in a CSV file. 

Hunter.io Author Finder Features:
First name, last name, email score, position, Twitter handle, LinkedIn URL, phone number, position, Twitter handle, LinkedIn URL, source, & downloadable data in a CSV file.

Hunter.io does give you more data about the emails which are of good value. However, Prospectss gives you more author emails due to the found limit not being capped like Hunter. Prospectss also is more affordable making it a winner in my books.
