Welcome to the Week 4 recap of our 30 Days of Enrichment campaign. We have had a blast profiling the different kinds of data enrichment APIs. Gigasheet's Custom Enrichment feature allows anyone to perform no code execution of data enrichment APIs. Just find an API online and run it using Gigasheet, no coding skills necessary. That means you can run APIs!
Before we begin Week 4, here is a quick recap of what we have learned so far:
And you can always find the full list of enrichments on our No Code APIs page. The fun continues in Week 4 with APIs ranging from saying hello to technical information about websites. Read on to learn more!
API Ninjas maintains 78 APIs that cover subjects from airlines to vocabulary words. We tried the Dictionary API and were able to enrich our sheet with definitions of vocabulary words. We followed up with the Thesaurus API on the same list. They offer lots of options and guarantee quality data, so go check out the list for yourself.
SecurityTrails, a leading data security company, offers a host of security-related API's including the Domain Details API which allows you to look up current data about hostnames. The response includes statistics associated with a particular domain, such as the number of other hostnames that have the same IP. We also tried the Domain SSL Certificates API.
Ever wonder what websites are built with? The BuiltWith Domain API provides an endpoint that can accept a domain name and return the technology used to create the website, and all available metadata. Time to start poking around.
Need to say hello in the appropriate language based on someone's location? The Hello, Salut! API provides an endpoint that returns how to say Hello in the language local to the IP Address. Sounds silly, but you never get a second chance to make a first impression!
Use the Apollo People Enrichment API to look up millions of records from your lead list, searching the world's largest, most accurate B2B database. In our example we pass in first name, last name, and company, and are provided plenty of contact information that could help land a deal.
The Magic: The Gathering Developers offer Magic: The Gathering API endpoints, that return different information about a card, including the set, name, and artist, and materials used. Very useful when you are trying to inventory your collection!
Spoonacular, a food management system, offers the Spoonacular API that provides information about individual ingredients or recipes. We use Gigasheet and the Spoonacular ingredient search to find some candidates for getting rid of leftover green beans.
That wraps up Week 4 of our 30 Days of Enrichments. Come back next week for the exciting conclusion of the campaign, profiling 5 more data enrichment APIs. By now it should be clear that the data enrichment possibilities are endless!
If somehow you haven't seen Custom Enrichments in action by now, stop what you are doing and watch this video!
