When you need to learn more about your industry, explore companies of interest or find a potential business partner for a big deal, LinkedIn gives you some great tools to do research. The only issue is that it takes a lot of time to copy and paste all the information into a database.
That’s precisely where this automation comes to play. It will scrape any LinkedIn company profile, get all the information on the page and save it to a Coda table of your choice with one click, saving you from the time-consuming copy-paste dance.
Let’s set it up!
To make the playbook work, create a Coda database with all the fields you want to capture. You can also duplicate our template that we created just for this use case.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this Playbook saved to your Playbooks.
Bardeen will redirect you to install the Chrome extension if it's your first time using Bardeen. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Coda from there.
Now, navigate to a company page on LinkedIn, open Bardeen, and click on the automation card.
Bardeen’s scraper tool will get information like the company name, the number of employees, description, LinkedIn profile link, and much more. You will get a prompt to map the information to your Coda database.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Coda that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Airtable. You can Edit Inputs later by covering over the playbook.
Navigate to another company's about page, click "Run playbook" and watch the magic happen!
