GoPinLeads offers fast and reliable information about any type of leads within your industry, with the freedom and flexibility that you require. If you are new to GoPinLeads, or if you are still figuring out how to get the best out of your account, here is a quick crash-course on how to go about using the various tools that we offer.
How to Use the GoPinLeads Chrome Extension
The Google Chrome extension for GoPinLeads is a fairly straightforward tool that can be used to find leads in a specific area. This tool works alongside Google Maps, and when you open the extension, you will be given instructions on how to proceed. These instructions are as follows:
- Conduct a Google Search
- Search Results Exported into GoPinLeads Extension
- Navigate Google Map Searches to Import Results
In the search, you should choose a business category and location. This will, of course, depend upon what you are looking for in terms of leads. You can be rather general, for example, by searching for ‘lawyers in South America’, or you can be more specific with your search, such as ‘antique porcelain doll makers in Mount Vernon, Illinois. ’ Whichever you may choose, the search should be done in the Google Maps search bar.
Once you have conducted your search and received your results, you should go back to the extension, which will then give you the GoPinLeads system. This system will be your guide through the other steps.
One of the things that GoPinLeads offers is a report with the leads’ contact details. You must then choose how you want to receive these details. You have the option to select “all contact details,” which includes email, social media, and phone numbers. Should you select this option, you will only be charged for one email per lead, while the rest of the information is free (which is an excellent price). However, you do have the option of choosing “just email,” in which case you will be charged for all of the email addresses for each lead, should they have more than one. We recommend the first option, as the information provided about their social media and phone contacts can be vital for modern business.
After making your decision, click “Capture My Google Maps Results, ” which will allow GoPinLeads to sift through the search results and display them for you. The system allows you to bulk select the number of leads you want, which can either be chosen from the categories provided, or by manually inputting the number you want. Once you have selected the number of leads that you want, click “continue” to proceed to the next section.
The next section is the “employees” box, which allows you to refine your search to better match your needs. For example, if you are only looking for managers, you will type this into the “refine search” box. This will then remove any leads that do not match your refined search, making your choices more suitable. You also have the option to manually deselect any leads that you have either contacted before, or you feel you do not wish to contact. Once the tool has finished refining your search, you can select the “finish” button.
You will be given a summary of the report that you are about to receive, and if you are happy, click “create report”. Should you wish to change anything, you can click “back to review” in order to make the necessary changes. Otherwise, if you are really not happy with the search at all, you can click on “cancel and start a new search”. The report will be emailed to you, and you will be able to view it in your GoPinLeads web app profile. Furthermore, you are able to download the report in an Excel file, or view it as a Google Sheet, for all your glorious spreadsheet needs.
How to Use the GoPinLeads Web App to Search Leads
If you want to search for leads using the GoPinLeads web app, make sure that you choose the “search leads” tab in the menu of options. You can then use this option to select a business sector and location, much like before. And again, you will have to choose between “all contact details” and “just email”. The cost is the same as before, which makes the choice much easier. Once you have made your choice, click on “search”.
The web app will load all search results for you, and you can control your search by using the control options provided on the app. For example, the “autoload” toggle will allow the app to continue loading results while you work with the “bulk selection” box in the same way mentioned above. The freedom of choice here is completely yours, and the bigger the number you choose, the more information will be captured.
Once again, you can manually deselect any of the leads, should you decide they are not what you are looking for. Once the tool has completed its process, click on the “continue” button, which will take you to the “employees” tab. Here, you have the same option to refine your search according to job titles, or other keywords that better suit your needs. You can refine your search in any way that you choose, even if it is the most finite of details. Once the results are finalised, click on the “finish” button.
You will then be taken to your report summary, where you will have the same options as in the Chrome extension. If you are happy with the information provided, you can click on “generate report”. Again, you can download the report as an Excel file, or use Google Sheets. You will always be able to access the original reports in the “Reports” tab in the menu on the app. However, you can make any changes to the report by making a copy in Google. You can make as many notes in your copy as you like, without changing the original.
How to Use GoPinLeads to Search Employees
The “Search Employees” function is available in the web app, and is currently in beta-mode. We encourage you to try it and provide us with feedback on how we can make it better, to suit all your needs. This function revolves around the use of tags to operate. The function provides a “Tags” box, which allows you to type whichever tags you wish to include in your search into the search bar. Once you click “add”, the app will offer various tag suggestions, which you are free to choose if you so wish. Add as many tags as you like, to better increase your chances of search results. The more specific your tags, the more specific your searches. The suggested tags may provide you options that you did not think of, so make sure to go through them before you continue.
Next, you have a search bar that gives you the option to exclude specific tags from your search. This is optional, but may be useful in really refining your search. However, be very careful of what you exclude, as you might run the risk of limiting your results. Once you’ve added and excluded tags, you have the option to choose “basic information” or ‘‘add email’’. Once you’ve decided, click on ‘‘search’’, and allow the tool to do its thing.
Your list will be made according to the tags you’ve chosen and excluded. Once again, as with the previous two search methods, you have the ‘‘autoload’’ option, and the ‘’bulk select’’ option, both of which function in the same way as previously mentioned. However, this tool offers the ‘’filter’’ function, that allows you to further refine your search in terms of job titles, company names, and number of employees. Of course, you can still deselect any leads that you choose, as you can with the other tools.
Once the tool has finished the search, you can select ‘’finish and get report’’ to move on to the report summary. After confirming that all the information is correct, you can download the report and either open it in Excel, or in Google Sheets. Once again, if you want to make changes, you should make a copy of the report.
The GoPinLeads Dashboard is the hub of information for anything you may need related to GoPinLeads. It’s a good idea to bookmark it for ease of access. The Dashboard provides an overview of your recent reports and recent activity. It also provides options for where to go within the app itself, along with the business tools. There is a menu bar that gives you direct access to the various tools and locations, and a credit count at the top of the page, that shows you how many credits you have in order to use the tools.
Buying new credits is easy, and you can buy packs of 100 credits, the number of which you can control each time you buy. It is important to remember that your credits are only valid until the beginning of the next month, so you should use them before they expire. Furthermore, once they are purchased, they cannot be refunded. Thankfully, you can make good use of your credits by generating reports through any of the above mentioned tools.
The Dashboard also gives you access to your account, which provides you with all your vital information, such as the plan that you are on and the chance to enter a promotion or discount code. Your billing and shipping information is stored under the ‘‘my account’’ section, and can be changed if and when it is needed. The ‘’pricing and plans’’ section gives you information about the various plans offered by GoPinLeads, and what they entail. You can contact the sales team with just a click, should you require any information or assistance. Developer enthusiasts are given information on the API through the ‘’developers’’ section.
GoPinLeads offers a ‘’refer and earn’’ program that gives you the chance to earn extra credits for referrals. When you refer us to a friend, they can use your code for free credits, which will then give you extra credits when they sign up.
When to Use Each Tool
So when should you use the “search leads’’ function, and when should you use the “search employees’’ function? In short, if your primary interest is in business details, you should use the “search leads” function. However, if you want to find someone with a certain job role, then you should use the “search employees” function.
So should I use the Google extension, or should I use the app? Using the app can sometimes offer more information, such as addresses for hotels and resorts, that Google Maps has removed due to policy issues. However, in other instances, the choice is yours as to whether you want to use the app or the extension.
