How does this automation work?

This playbook automates the process of connecting with a list of LinkedIn profiles and collecting their basic information. In our increasingly digital world, networking and lead generation are crucial for business growth. With this automation, you can scale your reach and build your professional network effortlessly.

Here is how this workflow works:

  1. Find all LinkedIn links: Bardeen extracts all the LinkedIn profile URLs from the list you provide. Make sure the links match the pattern https://www.linkedin.com/in/.
  2. Scrape LinkedIn profiles: Bardeen visits each LinkedIn profile in the background, using a scraper to extract basic information.
  3. Add data to Google Sheets: The scraped data is then added to a Google Sheets spreadsheet of your choice. Google Sheets is a powerful tool for organizing, analyzing, and sharing your data.

How to run the workflow

You want to automatically send a connection request on LinkedIn to a list of LinkedIn links?

Save yourself the trouble of entering every profile, do it automatically with this playbook.

This playbook allows you to connect to each profile on a list of LinkedIn links, and get a Google Sheet with basic information of the connected profiles.

Please be aware that the excessive or abusive use of extensions, bots, or automation tools on some websites can lead to penalties, including temporary or even permanent restrictions on your account. We recommend you read and adhere to the specific terms of the websites you are visiting and using to avoid any disruptions or issues. We do not assume any responsibility for the consequences of abuse.

To run it, you'll need to input a list of LinkedIn links and name the output google sheet, and let Bardeen do the work for you!

You can also customize this it to send the scraped data into Notion, Google Sheets, Airtable, Coda, etc.

Warning

Note that according to LinkedIn "your LinkedIn account may be temporarily restricted from sending invitations to people for the following reasons:

  • You've sent many invitations within a short amount of time.
  • Many of your invitations have been ignored, left pending, or marked as spam by the recipients."

On the first item, this playbook is built so that your invitations are sent in a more "realistical" matter.

To avoid getting restricted, this playbook runs from your own browser (unlike other tools that run on bulk), it opens every page on the background, and has a 5 second delay when opening each link.

On the second item, it highly depends on the profiles that you input, so...

We don't advice using this playbook on large lists of unknown people.

LinkedIn can restrict your profile if you're a spammy person, so run it at your own risk.

That being said, if your list of profiles is properly filtered and your recipients are not total strangers, it's pretty safe to run it.
