How does this automation work?

For professionals focused on sales prospecting and data sourcing, understanding the size of a company is crucial for tailoring outreach strategies. Bardeen's playbook leverages automation to streamline the process of fetching a LinkedIn company's headcount directly from an open profile. This workflow is especially beneficial for those who need quick access to company size data without manually searching for it.

Here's how you can automate the retrieval of a company's headcount from LinkedIn:

  • Step 1: Scrape LinkedIn profile - The Scraper integration is used to extract data from the currently opened LinkedIn profile, identifying the company associated with the profile.
  • Step 2: Prepare company URL - Bardeen then takes the company's LinkedIn URL and prepares it for the next scraping action.
  • Step 3: Scrape company page - With the URL ready, the Scraper goes to the LinkedIn company's 'About' page in the background to extract the headcount information.
  • Step 4: Split headcount data - The scraped headcount data is then split into a manageable format.
  • Step 5: Display headcount - Finally, Bardeen extracts the specific headcount number from the data and displays it on the screen for the user.
