    Hi

    As part of my outbound for my domain names I need to get in touch with some people at a big company, but a tool I just came across (RocketReach.co) also lists their personal emails as well as their company ones.

    I'm wondering whether - in particular for marketing executives based in the UK - sending my outbound mail to a personal email would be a good idea to rise above the noise, or considered too intrusive. What are others' thoughts and experiences on this?

    Some background: I saw this article yesterday, which made some good points and made me wonder whether sending to the personal address would make you stand out more to those working in high level positions in marketing. In the article he argues that personal emails and even DMing on LinkedIn and Twitter are more preferable when you have to send a generic business emails:

    It seems a convincing argument and I was wondering what other's thoughts were on it

    You would need to consider where the personal email was scrapped from, otherwise you could literally be spamming them.
