Nimble Enrichment Feature Overview

We developed Nimble enrichment credits to help you prospect smarter for complete contact information. Now sales, marketing, and business development professionals have an easy way to discover contact information for qualified prospects in seconds. 

With that said, the basic workflow for using the enrichment credits feature is to find the email address for a contact, send a message to them in Nimble via Group Messages, measure the effectiveness of that message, use Nimble to schedule follow-ups, and then turn that connection into a sales opportunity managed via Deals. 

How do I activate enrichment credits and where do I use them? 

Since enrichment credits are a feature of Nimble, all accounts already have them. Access enrichment credits via the Nimble Prospector browser extension or while viewing a contact record in Nimble.

How are enrichment credits used?
Enrichment credits are used when an email is found and verified. 

How are emails verified and what is the confidence score? 

Nimble runs several checks for email verification on the back end: 

  • Valid format: We verify that the format of the email address is correct and looks like "". 

  • Check for random formatting: We check that the address doesn't look like a random junk email like "".

  • Disposable Email Address: We check to make sure the email doesn't exist at a temporary disposable email domain such as 

  • Webmail Email Address: We verify if the email address is from a commercial webmail provider like Gmail, Yahoo, or 

  • MX Record Verification: We check if there are MX records on the company domain, otherwise, the email address can't receive messages. 

  • Presence of SMTP Server: MX records indicate whether or not the SMTP server can be reached. 

  • SMTP Verification: We test the email address to make sure it doesn't bounce. 

  • Accept-all Domain: We test if the server accepts all email addresses via a catch-all policy. 

The Confidence Score on a discovered email is an estimation of the probability that the email address returned is correct, between 0 and 100. Anything over 75% is likely to be delivered. 

Prospecting emails that are "Not Verified" will not cost any credits to your account to add to Nimble. 

Prospecting emails that show "% Confidence Level" use a credit when the search is performed, as these emails have been verified to work at some point in time. 

Sample Workflows for Nimble Enrichment

When you hover over a contact name anywhere on social media or the web, Nimble will surface broad social profiles as well as any contact history, if they’re already in your database.  For new prospects, enter their first name, last name, and company domain URL (Nimble will suggest alternatives, or you can enter one), and Nimble will return search results for their email, phone number, social profile, locations, additional URLs, and etc. 

Finding Emails for Twitter Contacts 

Twitter is a powerful network for information and making initial connections, but every conversation eventually makes it to email. Here's an example of how to discover the email address for a Twitter contact. 

Go to Twitter and select your notifications to check out recent followers and mentions. Open the Nimble extension and hover your cursor over any Twitter profile. 

Select "Search for Contact Info" on a contact record to launch the enrichment credits. 

In Nimble Prospector, plug in the contact's name and company domain. Type in the company name to pull up a suggestion from Nimble. Nimble Enrichment will search to locate multiple data points including email, phone number, website URL, and location. 

The Prospector will show contact details, which you can then select “Save Data” to store on Nimble. 

Fill In Missing Contact Details on a Nimble Record

You can also use enrichment credits to add data to incomplete records in your Nimble CRM. 

Here’s how:

Go to a Nimble record, and select "Search Contact Info" to discover their email. This will pull up a pop-up with all of the data fields we have found.
