How to Automatically Add Leads to a Spreadsheet with Make.com
Make.com offers a range of tools and features that can help you automate lead collection and add them to a spreadsheet. Here’s how to get started:
Step 1: Connect Your Apps
The first step in automating lead collection is to connect the apps that you’re using to collect leads. For example, if you’re using a contact form on your website to collect leads, you’ll need to connect that form to Make.com.
Step 2: Create a Workflow
Once your apps are connected, you can start creating a workflow that will automatically add leads to your spreadsheet. To do this, you’ll need to create a workflow in Make.com that includes the following steps:
- Trigger: This is the event that will start your workflow. For example, you could use a “New Form Submission” trigger to start the workflow when someone fills out your contact form.
- Action: This is the step that will add the lead to your spreadsheet. For example, you could use a “Add Row to Spreadsheet” action to add the lead’s information to a new row in your spreadsheet.
- Connectors: These are the steps that connect your trigger and action together. For example, you could use a “Filter” connector to ensure that only qualified leads are added to your spreadsheet.
Step 3: Test Your Workflow
Before you start using your workflow, it’s important to test it to ensure that it’s working correctly. Make.com offers a range of testing and debugging tools that can help you identify and fix any issues with your workflow.
Step 4: Deploy Your Workflow
Once you’re happy with your workflow, you can deploy it and start using it to automatically add leads to your spreadsheet. Make.com offers a range of deployment options, including scheduled and triggered workflows.
