As a recruiter, your clients rely on you to help them source some of the most talented individuals out there. With your impressive set of headhunting skills, you know how to track them down.

Top talent may not actively apply to online job posts anymore, but most still keep an account on LinkedIn, giving you a gateway to reach those passive candidates.

However, what stuns many recruiters new to the world of LinkedIn is how hard it is to get a response.

The big, shiny blue Message button makes it seem all too easy. But if you’ve ever tried reaching out to passive candidates on there, you know it’s a sea of uncertainty, with no way of knowing when or if someone will ever get back to you.

That’s what makes Easy Leadz such a game-changer for recruiters.

Whether you’re trying to reach out to potential clients or sourcing top talent for the clients you have, this straightforward plugin lets you jump over the hoops and land directly onto the phone screens of your target audience.

How it works:

All you need is to load up a profile in your browser and click the “Click to get contact” button on the right side. Doing so will instantly bring up the cell phone number of that person, at a cost of one credit.

Speaking of credits, you get 5 for free every month. If you need more, which you obviously will, you’ll have to pay a monthly subscription of $29 for 40 credits or $139 for 300 credits.

While their data is usually accurate, it misses the mark sometimes and you end up with a contact number that’s either incorrect or long dead. But the good news is that you can get your credits back if the data turns out to be wrong.

This way you’ll only pay for the correct phone numbers.

Furthermore, the credits work on a roll-over basis, which means any credits left unused will be added to next month’s quota.

All in all, Easy Leadz is a no-nonsense extension that does what it claims with zero frills that might bloat up the interface. You can check it for yourself with the 5 free monthly credits before opting for the premium subscription.
