Common Challenges Faced While Building a Lead List 

Building a lead list for cold email campaigns can be a real headache, especially if you don’t have a pre-existing process. Here’s a list of common challenges faced while building a lead list for cold email campaigns:

Spending Hours Formatting Spreadsheets

Formatting spreadsheets can be a significant time sink for cold email marketers like you. Sometimes, you may even find yourself endlessly adjusting columns, aligning data, and ensuring consistency in your spreadsheet. 

This formatting ordeal is both time-consuming and energy-draining, leaving you with little to no time for the more critical aspects of your campaign.

Manually Building Lead Lists

Manually sourcing and compiling leads can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. You'll need to scour various online platforms, websites, and databases to identify potential leads. This not only consumes a massive amount of time but also carries the risk of missing out on valuable prospects.

Verifying Email Addresses

Verifying the validity of email addresses can be a real headache. Many marketers spend valuable time cross-referencing email addresses to ensure they are accurate and up-to-date. But, overlooking this step can also lead to high bounce rate and damaged sender reputation.

These challenges can be discouraging for anyone trying to make money with cold email campaigns. 

This is why, at Smartlead, we have come up with a solution for all these lead list creating problems—Listkit integration. 

Smartlead & Listkit Integration: One Solution to all List Building Problems

Listkit is a SaaS platform that is known for generating hyper-personalized B2B lead lists and delivering straight to your inbox within 24 hours. Not to forget, Listkit lead lists are totally verified. 

Listkit Smartlead partnership

Earlier, our users created lead lists in separate list building platforms, verified them, formatted those leads in spreadsheets, and later uploaded them to the Smartlead app in CSV format. We agree it was quite exhausting.

To make your cold emailing experience even smoother, Smartlead has partnered with Listkit. 

Now, with Smartlead & Listkit integration, you can do it all from the Smartlead app without going through the hassle of creating spreadsheets and CSV files and manually verifying them.

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
