Learn how to save your leads in Hunter or import them

Updated over a week ago

There are several ways to add leads to Hunter:

Add a new lead manually from the Leads page

Leads can be added manually, one by one, directly from the Leads page.

  1. Go to the Leads section of your account, select the list of leads to which you wish to add your new lead, from the left panel and click the + New Lead button;

  2. A popup page will come up to complete the fields with the lead’s information;

You can also add custom attributes by clicking the + New custom attribute button.

A popup will appear to add the name of the attribute. You can add up to 50 custom attributes;

💡 If you only have the email address and the full name, Hunter will automatically enrich the lead with additional public information at no cost.

Save leads while finding emails on Hunter's website

Leads can also be directly saved from the Domain Search or the Email Finder, by simply clicking on the "Save as lead" button next to each contact.

If you want to add the new lead to a specific Leads list, click the arrow next to the "Save as lead" button to open a drop-down menu. From there, you can choose an existing Leads list to save the lead or create a new one.

Save leads while using the Chrome Extension or Firefox Add-on

You can also save leads while surfing the web using Hunter's Chrome Extension or Hunter's Firefox Add-on by simply clicking the Save button next to each contact you would like to save in your list of leads.

At the bottom of the extension, you can also select the Leads list to which you wish to add this contact.

Import leads from a file

If you already have a list of leads you want to import to Hunter, the Leads Import feature will allow you to upload it.

💡Should you import the same lead twice, Hunter will not create a duplicate but will update the existing lead with any new information or attributes, allowing easily integration of data across different products.

There are two ways to access the Leads import:

  • At the bottom left of the Leads page, select Import Leads and then +New Import;

  • At the top right of the Leads page, click on the + Import leads button.

    👉 To import a list to your leads, follow these steps:

  1. Select a destination list. This can be a pre-existing list, or you can create and name a new list;

  2. Upload the CSV or TXT file that contains your leads. Each lead will need to have at least an email address;

  3. If you want to verify the leads as you import them, check the "Verify the email addresses" box. This option will use verification credits to provide a verification status to each lead you import;

  4. On the next page, match each column of your file to the appropriate attribute. You can also create custom attributes by clicking on the Create a new attribute option at the bottom of the dropdown menu.

After you start the import, the leads will be added to your selected list. If you have thousands of leads, this process can take a few minutes.
