If you’re looking to generate website design leads for your company, then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve put together a free software lead generation tool that will allow you to find up to 5,000 free website design leads a month.

Website Design Lead Generation Tools
There are two great tools out there for anyone looking to generate software leads, website design leads, or anything else in the digital realm.
Find Potential Customers with BuiltWith
The first piece of the puzzle is the website profiler BuiltWith. BuiltWith allows you to search for domain names that use relevant tools. For example, if you design WordPress sites, you can find domains that use WordPress. Then you can reach out to them via email or a phone call (preferably both).
But what if you can’t find their email?
Find Emails with Hunter
Hunter is a great tool that allows you to enter a domain and get a list of emails associated with those addresses. So you’d pop in one of the domains you found on BuiltWith, and then see how many emails you can find.
Unfortunately, with the free plan you can’t export to CSV, so you’ll have to copy and paste the email addresses.
This can be a time consuming process, going through all the domain names you find and copying and pasting the emails one by one.
That’s where the handy little tool I mentioned earlier comes in.
BuiltWith/Hunter Lead Gen Accelerator
Enter your email below to get the tool, then I’ll show you how to use it.
How to Use the Lead Gen Accelerator
As you can see, Lead Gen Accelerator is just a fancy name I’ve given to a Google Sheets script I wrote. The sheet pulls data through Hunter’s free API. You get 50 free requests each month, but that doesn’t mean 50 emails. That means as many emails as come through for each domain you look up.
You can’t download the leads to a CSV with Hunter’s free plan, but this tool takes care of that for you.
First, choose a technology and run a search on BuiltWith. Let’s stick with WordPress.
Then, you’ll be presented with some search results. Go to the first entry and click “Download List of All Websites Using WordPress.”
They’ll show you a few, but you’ll need to click the big red button in the bottom right and create a free account to get a bigger list.
Download the list, and then cut and paste all the domains into the “Domains” tab of the Lead Gen Accelerator. Then go sign up for a free Hunter account and get your API key at https://hunter.io/api_keys.
Enter your API key in the cell indicated on the “Domains” tab. After that, just click the Advertoscope logo, and let the tool work its magic.
When it’s finished, you’ll have a list of personal emails (because generic emails like “[email protected]” aren’t any good for lead gen). When Hunter can find it, the list will also include the contact’s name, department, and seniority.
Two Things to Remembering When Generating Website Design Leads
Now you’ve got a powerful tool to generate up to 5,000 website design leads a month. All you have to do is make sure that:
- You don’t make this email marketing mistake.
- You follow the laws for cold emailing in your country.
Do those two things, and you should be golden. And if you need even more free leads, check out this post on how to get over 1,450 free leads in one day without opening your wallet.
