  • Create your Make account (it's free and quick).
  • Add Make add-on in Google Sheet (📎 Follow the tutorial).

Tutorial : Automate your B2B database enrichment with Make and Dropcontact, without development

But how? Don't panic, we'll explain everything to you, using a concrete example.

Dropcontact is natively integrated into Make for an easier enrichment workflow! 😌

Let’s go ! 🚀

1 - Create a new Make scenario

This scenario will connect your Google Sheet containing your contact data, with Dropcontact, which will clean and enrich it automatically, in a new tab of your file.

Workflow to find email addresses with Make (ex Integromat)
Workflow to enrich and clean your lead, prospect or customer databses directly in Google Sheets

2 - Add first Google Sheet module, "Watch Rows" trigger

  • Connect your Google account
  • Select your Google Sheets file and the worksheet on which you want to retrieve the data to enrich

3 - Add a Dropcontact module "Create a Contact (asynchronous)"

  • Map fields with contact information

💡 Launch a run each time a module is added to test as you go along.

Before starting a run, manually choose the specific line to start with:

Test your email address enrichment workflow as you go

4 - Add a delay "Sleep"

Then add a tool: "Sleep" Action. To maximize Dropcontact success rates, specify a delay of 50 seconds*. 😴

*⚠️ Why this 50 second delay? Dropcontact does not have a stored and nominative database, but enriches your data using algorithms and its own servers. This is why Dropcontact is the only 100% GDPR compliant solution.

5 - Specify a "Get a Contact" Dropcontact module

  • Select the Request ID obtained thanks to the previous Dropcontact module
Get the dropcontact request ID
The {Request-ID} is available in the Dropcontact drop-down menu

💡 launch another run to test your workflow.

6 - Get access to your cleaned and enriched file!

One last step before the success of your prospecting and your success 🤩

Add a last Google Sheet module, action “Add a row”

  • Connexion : Connect you Google account again
  • Spreadsheat : Select the Google Sheet where you want to find your cleaned and enriched data
  • Sheet name : The specific tab
  • Table contains headers : YES

Download the Dropcontact template here (just copy and paste the headers into your own file)

  • Values : For each item, add the corresponding variable available in the “Dropcontact - Get a Contact” submenu

Confirm. And There you go !

You have just created your own workflow in less than 10 minutes (only once), to save 10 hours of tedious tasks every week.

⚠️ Dropcontact modules directly integrated into make may not retrieve all of the company's legal information (turnover, number of employees, siret, siren, VAT number). For full enrichment, follow our tutorial below 👇

Another method: Configure Make with Dropcontact, without development, to find and check B2B emails

1 - Create a new Make scenario

Google Sheet, Integromat and Dropcontact automation

2 - Add first Google Sheet module, “Watch Changes” trigger

At this point, copy-paste the link provided on the Make add-on of your Google Sheet > Add-on > Make > Settings > Webhook URL

💡 Set up the schedule every day to optimize the use of your credits if you regularly work on your file.

‍💡 Share your Google Sheet with “people with the link” and allow editing if you haven't already.

3 - Configure Dropcontact POST

To do this, add an HTTP module in Make to be able to link Dropcontact, and configure the module as follows:

  • URL : https://api.dropcontact.io/batch
  • Method : POST
  • Headers :
  1. Name : Content-Type | Value : application/json
  2. Name : X-Access-Token | Value : The Dropcontact API key, you can find it in the “API & integrations” tab.
  • Body type : RAW
  • Content type : JSON (application/json)
  • Request content : Copy and paste the following code and replace the “data types” with the variables from your Google Sheet suggested in “Row Values”.

"data": [
"first_name": "John",
"last_name": "Smith",
"company": "corporation",

💡 If your file contains French companies, add the siren information, adding the line “siren”: true.

  • Parse response : tick
  • ⚠️ Time out : 45 (Remember to open advanced options)

💡 Launch a run each time a module is added to test as you go along.

4 - Add a delay

Add a Tool: 50 Second "Sleep" Action to maximize Dropcontact success rates.

5 - Set up the Dropcontact "GET"

Add a "Make a request" HTTP module in Make to complete the Dropcontact integration.

  • URL : https://api.dropcontact.io/batch/{your-request-id}

The variable {your-request-id} is available in the drop-down menu: HTTP 1 - Make request > “Data” > “request_id”

  • Method : GET
  • Headers :
  1. Name : Content-Type | Value : application/json
  2. Name : X-Access-Token | Value : your API key (the same as used in the previous POST module)
  • Body type : RAW
  • Content type : JSON (application/JSON)
  • Parse response : YES

6 - Access to the cleaned and enriched file

Add a last Google Sheets module: action “Add a row”

  • Connexion : Connect your Google account
  • Mode : Select Spreadsheet and sheet
  • Spreadsheat : The Google Sheet where you want to find your cleaned and enriched data
  • Sheet : Select the specific tab
  • Table contains headers : YES

Download the Dropcontact template here (just copy-paste the headers into your own file)

  • Values : For each item, add the corresponding variable available in the submenu “HTTP 2 - Make a request” > Data

💡 You may need to create a test line in your base file, then launch a run to access all the data generated by Dropcontact.

Confirm. And… there you go !

💡 A few tips to optimize the treatment and the efficiency of the enrichment:

  • The basic file must include at least: first name, last name and company name of your leads
  • If the company's website is present, the recovery rate increases significantly. Generally speaking, the enrichment rate is between 35% and 65%.
