Heeeey lemlister! 👋
We optimize your workflow by enriching your prospects directly from the app, so you save a huge amount of time when preparing your campaigns!
To get as much information as possible, you can combine both our LinkedIn scan with our Dropcontact integration.
Let me explain it to you 😊
Activate the scans
To activate your scanners, select them in your campaign's Settings section.
⚠️ What you must do!
It is absolutely necessary for the scanner option to be checked before importing your leads to your campaign.
The LinkedIn scan
Thanks to our LinkedIn scan you can get all sorts of information about your prospects depending on their profiles, such as:
LinkedIn profile URL
💡 lemlister tip
The Linkedin URL is only pulled while using our chrome extension. If you import a CSV file, the LinkedIn URL must be filled in the CSV otherwise, we cannot contact the lead on LinkedIn.
Company profile URL
Use lemlist LinkedIn Chrome extension
To get this information in just a few clicks, you'll need to use the lemlist LinkedIn extension.
Do your LinkedIn search using the filters of your choice
Click on the lemlist LinkedIn extension to add the contacts to your campaign
If you activated the LinkedIn scan in the app, the leads will automatically be enriched.
Once it's done you'll see the little LinkedIn icon on the lead's line, as below.
☝️ Even though we are visiting your lead's profile to scrap the information, your leads won't be able to see that you visited their profile.
However, each visit is taken into account by LinkedIn and will be subject to LinkedIn limits. So, please check the limit in your Settings Section and adapt your campaign accordingly (max 100 LinkedIn total actions per day).
☝️ Be aware of the scan daily limit: by default only 30 per day. So if you have hundreds of profiles to enrich it can take several days.
When your daily LinkedIn scan limit is reached you can see an orange LinkedIn icon, as below. That means the scan will start again the day after.
The Dropcontact integration
The integration allows you to get data about your leads, including email addresses, directly from the lemlist app.
This means you can enrich your prospects' list and launch your campaign without leaving the app!
For you to do so, you need a Dropcontact account and you need to activate it from the app:
1️⃣ Go to your Settings section, Integrations tab
2️⃣ Enter your API key (find it in your Dropcontact account)
3️⃣ Select the language in which you want your data to be scraped. e.g. Mister (EN) vs. Monsieur (FR)
For your LinkedIn imports to be automatically chained with Dropcontact, you need to meet the following conditions:
You have activated the Dropcontact scan and Linkedin Scan in the campaign options before importing your leads.
You have your leads' company domain
Your leads have a custom variable firstName, lastName, email, and CompanyDomain, otherwise we won't scan. Without this variable, Dropcontact can return very random data, and since it costs credit, we don't take that risk.
Your sequence is not exclusively LinkedIn-based ( email step is must)
Have Dropcontact credits before importing leads (refresh them!)
Have registered your API key in integration before importing leads
Your campaign is running (not on pause).
When Dropcontact is enriching your lead, you see the little green icon going round.
If you don't want to use the LinkedIn extension to import your leads, no worries you can also use the Dropcontact scan on leads imported via a CSV file.
✅ Information Dropcontact can get depending on the lead:
Company LinkedIn URL
Number of employees
If there is an error with a lead enrichment, the scan automatically pauses to protect you from wasting your Dropcontact credits with more errors.
How would I know?
You'll see the little Dropcontact icon turn red. Plus, if an error occurred the team owner is notified in the app so he can manually restart the scan.
☝️ For lemlist to enrich your contacts, you must have the company name, the company LinkedIn, the company's website, or the company domain (in the email address) of your lead.
☝️For Dropcontact scan to work, you need a valid API key and Dropcontact credits. If you're running out of credits, the scan won't work until you get new ones.
☝️ There shouldn't be another batch in progress within the team. Leads enrichment batches are done one by one on a team level.
☝️Dropcontact scanner doesn't work on leads imported from your CRM as lemlist wouldn't update your leads in your CRM after they've been enriched.
☝️ Fields that are retrieved overwrite existing ones. So for instance firstName and lastName can be modified after the scan, changing the case. Except for email, which will stay the same (unless it's a @fake-linkedin.com).
☝️ If you just added new credits to your Dropcontact account, hit the refresh button in lemlist so everything is sync and ready to use.
⚠️ Did you know?
We have integrated tooltips in the app to indicate when there is no more credits. It shows which lead could not be scanned and appears at the top of the campaign.
