How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook for extracting company headcount from LinkedIn profiles and saving it to Coda is designed to efficiently gather valuable business intelligence. In sales prospecting or data sourcing research, understanding the size of a company can be pivotal. This workflow automates the process of capturing this data, which can be used to tailor your sales strategy or conduct market analysis.

Here is how this workflow operates to save LinkedIn profile's current company headcount to Coda:

  • Step 1: Scrape LinkedIn profile data - Scraper is used to extract company-related data from a LinkedIn profile in the background. This step requires the LinkedIn profile URL as input.
  • Step 2: Merge LinkedIn company link - The scraper’s output is concatenated with the company's LinkedIn page link to prepare for the next scraping action.
  • Step 3: Scrape company headcount - Using the prepared link, Bardeen scrapes company headcount from the about page of the LinkedIn company profile.
  • Step 4: Extract the headcount number - The scraped data containing the headcount is then split to isolate the exact number of employees.
  • Step 5: Select headcount data - This step retrieves the specific piece of data, which is the headcount, from the array created in the previous step.
  • Step 6: Add data to Coda - Finally, Bardeen adds the LinkedIn profile name, company link, and extracted headcount number to a specified Coda table, completing the workflow.
