How does this automation work?

Bardeen's workflow automation allows users to easily transfer valuable data, such as LinkedIn company headcount, directly into Airtable. For businesses focused on sales prospecting and data sourcing research, having up-to-date information on potential clients is crucial. This particular workflow efficiently captures the headcount of companies from LinkedIn profiles and saves it in Airtable, enabling dynamic sales strategies and informed decision-making.

Here's how the workflow automates saving LinkedIn company headcount into Airtable:

  • Step 1: Capture current LinkedIn page URL - This command grabs the URL of the LinkedIn company profile that is currently open in your browser.
  • Step 2: Prepare the URL for scraping - The URL is formatted correctly to ensure the data can be scraped effectively from the LinkedIn company profile page.
  • Step 3: Scrape LinkedIn company headcount - Using the Scraper tool, the workflow extracts the headcount data from the LinkedIn company profile in the background.
  • Step 4: Split headcount data - The scraped headcount information is then split into a format that can be easily transferred to Airtable.
  • Step 5: Select headcount number - From the split data, the specific number representing the company headcount is selected for inclusion in your Airtable base.
  • Step 6: Add headcount to Airtable - Finally, the headcount data is added to a new row in your specified Airtable base, completing the workflow.

Let’s set it up!

Please be aware that the excessive or abusive use of extensions, bots, or automation tools on some websites can lead to penalties, including temporary or even permanent restrictions on your account. We recommend you read and adhere to the specific terms of the websites you are visiting and using to avoid any disruptions or issues. We do not assume any responsibility for the consequences of abuse.

Step 1: Create an Airtable

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

Bardeen will find the currently opened company’s headcount. It will then get the company’s headcount and save the information to your Airtable, once your setup is complete.

Step 2: Install the extension and map the data to Airtable

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.

Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbooks.

Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start. 

You will be asked to specify 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. 

Step 3: Run the playbook and save LinkedIn company headcount to Airtable

When you want to get the current company and that company’s headcount from a LinkedIn company profile, activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard).

It will get the currently opened LinkedIn company profile’s headcount. It will then save the information to your Airtable.

You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
