Answers to the normal “challenges” I face when I tell people this: No. Occasionally the email address isn’t the correct address and my email gets sent to the wrong person.This happen’s 1 out of 100. Occasionally it says all email’s I try are wrong - the common reason is that the company has a weird email structure - e.g. simon@uk.company.com. My Launch48 email address shown is not the email address I used to sign up to Linkedin. My Launch48 email address shown is not the email address I used to sign up to Twitter. It still works. Q: What if the person I’m looking for didn’t use their work email address for social media accounts? Q: Does this always work? Q: The person I want to contact doesn’t have a social media account. Try something else.
