In today’s competitive business environment, lead generation is crucial to the success of any company.
But did you know that your generic inboxes, such as info@, sales@, and billing@, hold a treasure trove of untapped potential? These inboxes often receive inbound emails from prospective clients or partners, making them low-hanging fruit for lead generation efforts.

How to Generate Leads Using Evercontact
As a marketer, you know that lead generation is a critical part of your job. Without leads, you can’t make sales, and without sales, you can’t keep your business running. One of the most effective ways to generate leads is by collecting contacts from inbound emails landing on generic inboxes such as info@, sales@, billing@, and others. These are low-hanging fruits in terms of reach and create an easy basis for lead generation.
The problem with generic inboxes is that they are often neglected or overlooked. Emails may sit there for weeks or even months before anyone checks them, and even when they are checked, they may not be properly managed. That’s where Evercontact comes in. With Evercontact, you can automatically extract and organize all the contacts from your inbound emails and turn them into valuable leads.

Step 3: Create filters for generic inboxes
Next, create filters in your email service that automatically forward emails from your generic inboxes (like info@, sales@, and billing@) to a designated email address. This will ensure that all inbound emails landing on these inboxes will be automatically collected by Evercontact.
Step 4: Configure Evercontact to extract contacts from forwarded emails
In Evercontact, configure your settings to extract contact information from forwarded emails. Evercontact will automatically detect that the emails were forwarded from a generic inbox and will extract the contact information from the email signature.
