Heeeey lemlister! πŸ‘‹

Here are my secret recipes to master your CSV to lemlist imports like a pro.

Together, we'll see how to:

πŸ‘‰ Format your CSV,

πŸ‘‰ Import a lead from a CSV file,

πŸ‘‰ Solve a CSV import problem.

Let's go for a ride!

1️⃣ Format your CSV

Let's start with basics: your CSV file can include as many columns as you like. Here, you'll find. I made this file to show you how do I do it. Feel free to use it if you'd like to!

2️⃣ Import a lead from a CSV file

Oh boy, here we go: you're officially about to import a lead from a CSV file. 🀩

Once you are in the Leads section of your campaign, choose the option "Import".

Then select the way you want to add your leads. In your case "Upload a CSV".

Then BROWSE YOUR FILES or to simply DRAG & DROP a .CSV file from your desktop or folder.

In your .CSV file, it doesn't matter how you order your columns: lemlist will recognize each variable automatically. (I know, pretty cool, right ?)

If lemlist doesn't recognize the names of your columns - you can map them yourself. 😊

⚠️ Be careful

If you want to have for example a link as a custom variable the column name should not have spaces in it.

lemlister tips

πŸ’‘ Make sure your .CSV's first row is filled with the name of the column/custom variable you want

πŸ’‘ You can have as many custom variables you want

For example, you can put a different URL for each client in a column BLOG and put the URL of their blog there. When you'll use i during your campaign, it will display a matching blog screenshot for each of your leads.

I didn't plan to let you on your own, so I also recorded you a video to show you the process. πŸ€—

3️⃣ My CSV is not uploading

Urgh, I hate it when my CSV takes ages to upload, don't you? But look, here's how you can solve it :

πŸ”ΉAre you using Safari? If yes - switch to Chrome or another browser.

πŸ”Ή Is your browser up to date?

πŸ”Ή Are you sure you have email addresses in your CSV, because we will not do anything without them - emails are lemlist IDs

πŸ”Ή Once you upload CSV - do you match the fields we give you as options to the ones you have? If not - please do - we will not import it otherwise.

πŸ”Ή Be 100% sure this is a pure CSV file. Go to your folder where this file is and check the properties of the file. If it is Excel CSV - we will not import it - please revert it, because seems that your system automatically equals it with Excel.

Now you're an A CSV file manager, you're good to go, or to reach us through the chat if you've questions left!

Enjoy ❀️
