So you’ve got a list of companies, neatly lined up.
But then, you noticed some missing information. Where’s the company domain?
If you’re a business owner or a sales professional, there are many reasons why you’d want to know a company’s domain:
- If you’re looking for potential leads, a company’s website is a good place to start reaching out.
- A company website can give you information about their services or how they present themselves. This gives you a quick peek if you’re doing market research.
- Looking for a potential collaboration? Just check a company’s website and see if their goals align with yours.
The best solution is to enrich your list to pull the company website and other relevant information you need.
In this guide, I’ll show you how it’s easily done using Clay.
How to Find Company Domains Using Clay
1) Prepare a List of Companies
Let’s start by creating a new table on Clay. Choose an option on how you want your list to be added. Each option provides you with a starter list to enrich your data.
For this tutorial, let’s start from a blank table.
Then, at the bottom of the page, click ‘Import’ and locate your CSV file. Once you have your data uploaded, you can delete the other default columns you don’t need.
2) Enrich Your List
With Clay, finding the domains from a list of companies is a straightforward process.
So, let’s right-click the table and add enrichment.
On the pop-up, look for an enrichment tool that’ll help you get company domains. You can type keywords like ‘Get Domain’ on the search bar. You should see multiple options to help you enrich your data.
For this example, we’re going to use Clearbit. So, go ahead and click ‘Get Domain from Company Name’ by Clearbit.
3) Set the Inputs
First, we’ll need to choose which API key to use to get the domains. There are two options available - use Clay’s Clearbit API key for free, or use your own Clearbit API key. If you have your own Clearbit account, you can tap the second option. Otherwise, use Clay’s API.
On the inputs, choose the column containing the company name from the drop-down.
Then, click ‘Continue to Add Fields.’
In the next window, choose which data you want to add as a column to your table. Let’s activate the toggle for the Domain option.
Save and run the integration.
Check your table. You should now see a new column added containing the domain of each company.
Tip: For optimal results with the Clearbit app, I strongly recommend you remove terms like ‘Inc.’ or ‘Company’ when adding a company name to your list. Leaving them in might lead to 'no results found.'
Alright, you now have the company domain of your target prospects. Time to level it up a bit by adding company details. Whatever your goal is, I suggest you explore Clay’s other enrichment tools to pull all the relevant information you need.
