LinkedIn is an amazing tool for finding exciting jobs and building your personal brand. But beyond that, it’s an invaluable tool for doing 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 an Airtable base of your choice with one click, saving you from the time-consuming copy-paste dance.
This playbook is helpful if you are prospecting leads for your company, want to be prepared for your job interview, or are creating a database of companies you are interested in.
To make the playbook work, create the Airtable base with all the fields you want to capture. You can also duplicate our template that we created just for this use case. We will map all the fields to the correct data in Step #2.
Click the “Try it” button at the top of this page to get this Autobook saved.
You will be redirected to the Airtable integration page.
Bardeen will ask for the Airtable base you want to use. After you choose the database, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in your Airtable database.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Airtable 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!
Make sure the automation is activated (toggled on).
To save a company’s information, right-click on the company link and run this automation. Bardeen’s scraper tool will get information like company name, the number of employees, description, LinkedIn profile link, and much more. Then, it will save it to the correct fields in Airtable.
