🤝 Let's see together, step by step, how to enrich the emails of its prospects directly from Google Sheet thanks to a workflow in a few simple steps.

Tuto : Integrate Dropcontact in Zapier and automate your Growth Hacking tools

Proof by example: How to enrich your contacts directly in Google Sheet.

  • Before starting, a few pre-requisites are necessary :
  1. Create a Google Sheet document :
  2. with a header line
  3. with at least one line with surname, first name, website, and company name
  • shared to "all persons with the link" with modification accesses
  • Have an account Dropcontact if you don't already have one. Registration is free (we don't even ask for your bank details) and it is possible to test the solution free of charge and without obligation.

Create a Zapier account. Registration is also free.

🔐 Here we go, you have all the keys in hand to automate the cleaning of your contact databases.

1. Create a Zap

Logo Station F
This Zap, or worflow, will allow Dropcontact to be connected to a Google Sheet to regularly update the latter with enriched, clean, standardized and above all guaranteed valid data.

2. Add a Google Sheet trigger

  • Set up :
  • App: Google Sheet
  • Trigger Event: "New Spreadsheet Row" or "New or updated Spreadsheet Row"
  • Account and Spreadsheet Row: Choose the file containing your contact database

Find data: Choose the better sample to test your future zap

💡 Share your Google Sheet with "the people who have the link" and allow editing if you haven't already done so.

3. Add Webhook POST Dropcontact

  • Configure the Dropcontact POST with :
  • App : Webhooks by Zapier
  • Action event : Custom request
  • Method : Post
  • URL: https://api.dropcontact.io/batch
  • Data Pass-Through: No
Data: Copy and paste the code below ✂️ and replace each "data-type" by the variables proposed by Zapier

{
"data": [
{
"first_name": "John",
"last_name": "Smith",
"email":"contact@bigcorp.com",
"company": "corporation",
"website":"corporation.com"
}
],
"siren":true
}

  • 💡 If your file contains French companies, add the "siren" information: true.
  • Unflatten: Yes

Header:

- Content-type: application/json

- X-Access-Token: Find the API key in the tab "My account", top

4. Delay treatment

Then, be patient. 🎶

Finally, above all, give time for the Dropcontact algorithm to operate.

It is therefore absolutely necessary to add a "Delay for" of 1 minute between the POST and the GET of Dropcontact.

⚠️ One minute?! And yes, because Dropcontact will not retrieve its contact data from existing databases (more or less legal by the way) but launches its proprietary algorithm to find, test and verify all the data.

This is what makes the solution 100% GDPR compliant and each provided data is legal.

5. Add the Dropcontact GET

  • Configure the Dropcontact POST with :
  • Configure the Webhook as follows:
  • Event: GET

URL : https://api.dropcontact.io/batch/{{your_request_id}}

- replace {{your-resques-id}} with "2.Custom request > Request ID".

  • 💡 Remember to display all options if all variables do not appear.
  • Send as JSON Yes
  • 💡 If your file contains French companies, add the "siren" information: true.
  • JSON Key : Yes

Header:

Headers:

- X-Access-Token: The Dropcontact API key, to be found in the "My Account"

💡 Test and verify your zap step by step

6. Retrieve your file of processed and validated prospects

Last step: Make the data returned by Dropcontact usable, in its Google Sheet.

  • Set up :
  • Finalize your zap by configuring :
  • Action Event: Create Spreadsheet Row
  • Account: Choose account, folder, file and sheet where your clean data will be sent by Dropcontact

- replace {{your-resques-id}} with "2.Custom request > Request ID".

Customize Spreadsheet row : For each item, add the variable

💡 For easy integration, you can download the Dropcontact template here (just copy and paste the headers into your own file)

One last data test, and bang!

You have just created your automation workflow to update the emails of your new prospects.
