Thank you for your question, In the past I have found that the best way to Import my contacts from Data.com Connect is to export them from here to excel and then have my SalesForce admin bulk upload them.
IF your company is using data.com and not the free connect version this might be intergraded and i would speak with your salesforce admin for help.
I hope this helped,

@NeatTray53 unfortunately, there is no direct integration of Data.com and Salesforce to allow what you are requesting.
The most common suggestion is export the list of Data.com contacts you would like to use in Salesforce, download them to a .csv file and work from there. However, there are some importation tools that you can make use of, if you work with your Salesforce administrator. I have not worked on it, but I understand these have been developed.
In addition, you may want to reach out to tech support : http://www.data.com/connect/support/
As well, for your further questions, you can use the search function in the upper right-hand part of the screen and type in some key words..For example if you search on import contacts to Salesforce, you can see there are several who have already asked on this topic.

I'm so beyond confused by how Salesforce and Dat.com work together. They advertise EVERYWHERE that you can have direct integrations, I mean look at these videos of the super sexy Data.com and Salesforce integration:
But if you ask any rep from SF they have no idea what you are talking about.
I would LOVE to have the capability in those videos. If anyone, has any info on this I am all ears.

@RaspyYouth90, this platform is 'Data.com Connect". it is a different product offered by Data.com. The products in the youtube videos you posted, Data.com Clean and Data.com Prospector are separate and not integrated into Connect. Likewise, Salesforce.com is a separate product. there is not direct integration between Data.com Connect and either Data.com Prospector, Data.com Clean or Salesforce. The only way to export from one platform to another is to export from Connect to a CSV and then import that CSV file to Salesforce or the other platforms. Direct export to Salesforce has been requested by many users. Unfortunately, only the workaround referenced above, while cumbersome, is the only way to export/import to Salesforce.
