Deep Dive

In this guide, I'll walk you through the process of exporting a list from Apollo based on the Ideal Client Profile (ICP) we discussed in the previous video. This is part of my ongoing series on end-to-end campaign creation for cold email. Let's dive in!

First, you need to set up your Apollo account. If you don't have one, you can sign up for a free trial which will give you access to the necessary features.

  1. Log into Apollo:

    • Start by logging into your Apollo account. If you're using the free trial, make sure you have access to the necessary search filters.

  2. Navigate to Prospect Enrich:

    • Click on "Prospect Enrich" and select "Search."

  3. Set Search Filters:

    • Switch to the "People" tab to start setting up your filters.

Applying Filters Based on ICP

Let's configure the search filters according to the ICP we defined:

  1. Location:

    • Set the location to "United States" to target prospects within the country.

    • Navigate to the location filter and type "United States."

  2. Employee Count:

    • We are targeting companies with 20 to 200 employees.

    • Select "Employee Count" and input "20 to 200" as a custom range.

  3. Industry:

    • For this example, we'll skip the industry filter and focus on technology and job titles.

  4. Technologies:

    • Add "Shopify" and "Shopify Plus" to target companies using these platforms.

    • Navigate to the technology filter and type "Shopify" and "Shopify Plus."

  5. Job Titles:

    • Target decision-makers by including job titles such as Founder, Owner, and CEO.

    • Add these titles to the job title filter.

  6. Exclude Unwanted Emails:

    • Ensure that you are not including outdated or invalid email addresses.

    • Use Apollo's filtering options to exclude emails that are marked as "Do Not Send."

Exporting Your List

Once you have applied all the necessary filters, it's time to export your list:

  1. Review Search Results:

    • Check the search results to make sure they align with your ICP. Ensure the list looks accurate and relevant.

  2. Select All Results:

    • Select all the prospects that match your criteria.

  3. Export the List:

    • Click on the export button to download your list. Apollo will provide options for exporting in different formats like CSV, which is useful for uploading into your CRM or email marketing tool.

Final Thoughts

By following these steps, you can efficiently create and export a list of targeted prospects from Apollo, aligned with your Ideal Client Profile. This method ensures that your cold email campaigns are directed at the right audience, increasing the likelihood of successful engagement and conversions.
