Exclusion Lists and Net-New Segments
For Net-New segments, LeadGenius will not add any of the companies or contacts present on your exclusion list.
Exclusion Lists and Enrichment
When you submit your data to LeadGenius for enrichment, we will attempt to enrich all records provided by you, regardless of whether they appear on your CRM exclusion list.
If you have submitted a list of companies for enrichment via CSV, and you have an exclusion list for contacts, we will not add any contacts present on your exclusion list. We will add new contacts to your list of companies.
There are a few different ways to add an exclusions list to LeadGenius. There are also 3 different types of exclusions lists, which we will also cover here.
Types of Exclusion Lists
CRM exclusion is when you have connected your CRM (Salesforce) to LeadGenius. LeadGenius syncs your accounts, contacts, and leads every 12 hours. We will not add any data that is present in your CRM.
Company Exclusion (CSV uploads only)
Company exclusion is where you would provide a list of companies, via CSV and we will not add any of those companies, or any of their contacts, to your net-new segments. If you have added these companies to an enrichment segment, we will enrich them and add new contacts.
Contact Exclusion (CSV uploads only)
Contact exclusion is where you would provide a list of leads via CSV. For net-new segments, we may add companies from this type of list, but we will not add the contacts that you have specified. If you have added these companies to an enrichment segment, we will enrich them and add new contacts, but we will not add contacts that you've specified to exclude.
How do I add an exclusion list?
Adding an exclusion list via CSV
- Click on your profile avatar at the top right of the Segment Overview, and click Settings.
- Then, click on the Exclusions tab.
- Click on Upload Exclusion List. You will then be able to select a CSV to upload.
- After choosing a CSV, you will then be able to choose whether to exclude the companies or exclude the contacts.
- After choosing the type of exclusion list, you will go to a screen where you can map the fields in your CSV to LeadGenius fields.
- For a company exclusion list, the company name and website must be included.
- For a contact exclusion list, the company name, website, first name, last name, and email must be included.
- Click on Finish to complete your upload, or if you want to choose a different CSV, click on Pick another CSV and start over.
Exclusion Lists and Salesforce
Once you have connected Salesforce to LeadGenius, we sync your Salesforce data every 12 hours. All of the account, contact, and lead data in your Salesforce becomes part of the exclusion list. You don't need to do anything else.
If you have additional lists that are not already in your Salesforce that you would like to exclude, you can follow the above instructions to upload a CSV. The options listed above to choose company exclusion or contact exclusion do not apply to Salesforce exclusion lists.
Salesforce Accounts & Contacts
All Salesforce accounts are in company exclusion list by default, which means we will never find any contacts at these accounts until they are added to an enrichment segment (at which point, we'll add all contacts with acceptable titles to the enrichment segment as well).
We will never provide the same lead again. Currently, we don't support Salesforce lead enrichment, except via CSV.
Exclusion Lists and Marketo
Once you have connected Marketo to LeadGenius, we sync your Marketo data every 12 hours. The most recent 2 years of lead data in your Marketo becomes part of the exclusion list. You don't need to do anything else.
If you have additional lists that are not already in your Marketo that you would like to exclude, you can follow the above instructions to upload a CSV. The options listed above to choose company exclusion or contact exclusion do not apply to Marketo exclusion lists.
