How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook empowers you to quickly assess a LinkedIn profile's associated company headcount. When researching potential leads or partnerships, understanding the size of an organization is crucial. This workflow automates the process of extracting company size information from LinkedIn profiles, saving you time and providing valuable insights for your sales prospecting or data sourcing research.

Here's how this workflow retrieves company headcount from LinkedIn profiles:

  • Step 1: Scrape LinkedIn Profile - Bardeen's Scraper accesses the LinkedIn profile in the background based on the URL provided. It extracts the current company link without manual intervention.
  • Step 2: Merge Company URL - The URL of the current company is prepared by concatenating strings to form the link to the company's LinkedIn page.
  • Step 3: Scrape Company Page - Using the company's LinkedIn URL, the Scraper obtains details from the company's about page in the background, including headcount.
  • Step 4: Extract Headcount Information - The text containing the headcount is split to isolate the specific data we need.
  • Step 5: Display Headcount - Bardeen selects the relevant item from the array of text, which is the company's headcount on LinkedIn, and displays it on the screen for you.
