Are you missing Rapportive yet? Yes, LinkedIn shocked many users be removing Rapportive and replacing it with LinkedIn Sales Navigator. For while Rapportive was the hottest tool for verifying and cross-referencing email addresses to user profiles on LinkedIn. I was using this tool every single day and I certainly at a loss for words when they decided to remove it from the chrome store.
Thankfully, there are many alternatives ways to replace all of Rapportives features. For example: verifying email addresses, cross referencing LinkedIn, and CRM capabilities. Unfortunately, from my experience none of these examples can completely replace rapportive altogether but at least we have some options moving forward. Good to point out – only download one extension at a time. Individually test them out and if one works fine then stick with it.
Below are 20 tools to replace Rapportive features:
