How does this automation work?

Bardeen's automation playbook offers a seamless way to capture valuable data from LinkedIn profiles and organize it systematically in an Airtable base. For businesses looking to streamline their lead generation and data sourcing research, this workflow automates the collection of a company's headcount information directly from LinkedIn—saving you time and ensuring accuracy. This playbook is particularly useful for sales prospecting and competitive analysis, as it allows you to keep track of potential clients or competitor growth.

Here's how this workflow captures LinkedIn company headcount and saves it to Airtable:

  • Step 1: Scrape LinkedIn Profile - The Scraper is set to run in the background to extract the current company and its LinkedIn page link from a LinkedIn profile you specify.
  • Step 2: Prepare LinkedIn Company Link - Bardeen merges the company name with the LinkedIn page link to create a URL that can be used to scrape additional data.
  • Step 3: Scrape LinkedIn Company Page - The Scraper then uses the newly created link to visit the company's LinkedIn 'About' page and scrape the headcount data.
  • Step 4: Extract Headcount Number - A string containing the headcount is split to isolate the number of employees.
  • Step 5: Prepare Data for Airtable - The headcount number is selected from the array and prepared along with the company name and LinkedIn link for Airtable.
  • Step 6: Save to Airtable - Finally, the company's name, LinkedIn link, and headcount number are added as a new row to your Airtable base.

Step 1: Create an Airtable

The first step is to create an Airtable with the information you want to save.

Bardeen will find the current company of the profile link that you enter. It will then get the company’s headcount from LinkedIn and save the information to you Airtable, once your setup is complete.

You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Airtable.

You will be asked to enter a LinkedIn profile link and the Airtable that will contain the information. After you choose the database, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Airtable.

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!

Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Airtable. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
