Alore CRM gives you the option to search as well as validate business email address of people in bulk and add them to your prospect database. All you need to do is have following three details saved in a .CSV format on your computer.
a) First Name
b) Last Name of the person (optional)
c) Email Domain name of the company at which he works (in case of searching the email address)
OR Email ID of the person (in case you want to validate the email ID)
(Note: While most of the time email domain name might be same as the website address of the company, sometimes companies might use different domain name for its website address and email address)
Before starting this process we recommend that you should have the list of people with whom you want to search email address be ready. If you have already done it, you can skip this section. Alternatively, you can also do it later.
Preparing the CSV file
You can download a sample CSV file here.
Fill in the following details under each of the columns respectively. Ensure to match each column's header with the contact property.
a) First name of the person
b) Last name of the person (optional)
c) Email Domain name of the company at which he works.
d) Email ID of the person
Note: the email domain name can be in any format
Ensure you do not change the header row of any of the column. If you're already managing your contacts in .CSV or .XLS, copy the above three properties into the downloaded sample CSV file. Ensure to match each column's header with the contact property.
Save the file in .CSV format on any location on your computer. Choose a suitable name for the .CSV file. (Example: CEO_ITES_COMPANIES_SINGAPORE). This will help you later while creating drip campaigns.
Uploading the file to find email address in bulk
Hover mouse over "Prospects" and Click “View all prospects”.
Click on “Add a new Prospect”.
Click on “Bulk Upload”.
If you have the .CSV file ready, you can skip this step and go to Step 5.
If you do not have the .CSV file ready, click on “Download Sample CSV” and follow the section"Preparing the CSV file" above
Click “Upload” to add your CSV.
Choose the location on the computer where you have to save the .CSV file
Map the data fields to that of Alore data fields. Alore maps as many of your data fields as possible to standard Alore data fields. But if it can’t map fields, you must do it manually. Unmapped fields are not imported into Alore.
Alore keeps on updating you with the status of bulk upload via emails:
List being uploaded: On completion of bulk upload, Alore will update you with an email “Your email list [list_name.csv] has been uploaded”.
Validation of email list: Alore will notify you with the number of email ids validated and the number of email ids found invalid.
