How to Find Email Addresses from LinkedIn Search Results

Let’s learn with a case study! 

Imagine that you just launched a marketing Saas and want to offer a special free trial to top decision-makers with large networks.

But you have a few challenges…

  • Who to contact? 🤔
  • How to contact them? 😥
  • How to truly speak to them so they feel connected to your email??? 😱

With the Spylead Chrome extension, you can within minutes: 

  • Scrape a list of prospects from Linkedin Search results
  • Find the verified email addresses of your prospects 
  • Get all their profile information to personalise your emails 

That’s all you need to set up a super-targeted emailing campaign with Spylead. Chances are that your prospects will be more engaged if you truly speak to them!

The big plus with Spylead is that the scraping will run in the background, so you can do several bulks at the same time and leave the LinkedIn tab while your data is loading! 

And before you ask, no there are 0 risks of getting your account restricted by LinkedIn if you use Spylead. 

All right? Let’s learn how to do that. 🤓

To summarise, we will:

1. Set up a LinkedIn Search

2. Set up the Spylead LinkedIn Search results scraper

Option 1. Scrape LinkedIn search results manually

Option 2. Scrape LinkedIn search results in bulk 

3. Use your freshly scraped data  

Before starting: 

1. Set up a LinkedIn Search

First, let’s set up the LinkedIn Search.

Go to LinkedIn Search Page 

Open Linkedin & go to the search page. 

You can directly use our shortcut: open the Spylead Chrome extension in your tool bar and click on the button “Search results”.

Open spylead chrome extension

Search for prospects 🎯

It’s time to decide who’s emails you’re looking for? Maybe CEO’s of marketing agencies in NYC? Or senior HR from Tesla? Or even French speaking UI/UX designers who work for your competitors? 

There’s an infinite number of possibilities with all the Search filters available on Linkedin, so just play with them to find exactly the profiles you’re targeting. 

In our case study, we’re looking for top decision makers with a large network, who could be interested about a new Saas tool. We can apply LinkedIn filters like: "CEO" as position + 2nd & 3rd connections + living in Paris + studied at HEC Paris + Work in Computer software & internet industries.

Note that LinkedIn gives you a maximum of 1000 results per search (100 pages, 10 results per page). So if you got 1000 results here, you might be missing out on some profiles. Just add more filters to refine your search and make sure you don’t miss out anyone in your scraping campaign.

Now that you’ve set up your search, let’s take care of the scraping.

There are 2 options to find the emails, choose the one which suits you best! 

  • Option 1: Manual. Find emails by targeting profiles.
  • Option 2: Bulk. Find thousands of emails in minutes. 

Option 1. Manual email search from LinkedIn search results 

Before finding out the emails, choose where you’d like to save those leads in your Spylead lead management dashboard. 

Click on “select a list” on the bottom left corner of the extension, and choose a list or create a new one. 

If you don’t select any list, your leads will still be saved on your lead management dashboard under your “All leads” list.

  • Select one, many, or all the profiles by clicking on the checkbox on the left of each name, and then click on “reveal and save”.

That’s all it takes! The list of prospects with associated emails has been sent to the selected list. To access it later, go to Spylead > “Leads” > “View all lists” > Click on the selected list. Now check your results, download them as CSV or add more leads.

Option 2. Scrape LinkedIn search results in bulk 

Out of the 104 CEOs found on this LinkedIn Search, only 10 profiles have been scraped with the Manual mode. This happened as LinkedIn shows only 10 profiles per page. 

To scrape more profiles, let’s use the bulk mode!

First, click on the “bulk” blue button and let’s set up your bulk. 

bulk email finder

👉 Name your campaign: type something like “LinkedIn Search” + the list of filters applied. 

👉 Choose a start page: from which page do you want to start the bulk? Type “1” to start from the 1rst lead of page 1. 

👉 Choose a page count: how many pages do you want to scrape?  Just scroll down on the search results to see how many pages of results you have. Type this number to scrape all the results of this search.

set up bulk scraping

Now you’re ready! Click on the “Start bulk” blue button to launch the scraping. 

A new tab will open with your scraping campaign details in the Spylead website. Just wait a few minutes to see the results.

3. Use your freshly scraped data 

Bravo, your email search went wonderfully well!! 🎉 You just got a list of hundreds of prospects, with their verified emails and a lot of useful data for your emailing campaign. Why not launch a cold email campaign to convert those prospects? 

lead management Spylead

Access your campaign, and move the leads to your favourite list!

You got many leads with emails, and maybe a few without emails! 👉 Save only the relevant ones. 

To filter this bulk email finder campaign and save only the profiles with emails found, add them to the lead list of your choice. Select all connections by clicking on the top checkbox on the header of the table, and click on the "Move leads" button. Just select the list of your choice and click on "save".  

Only connections with emails will be sent to the selected list.

Download LinkedIn prospects information as CSV

Bravo ! 🎉 You saved all the prospects with emails in the dedicated list of your lead management dashboard. Now you probably want to download the results?

Well that's easy, click on the "Download as CSV" blue button directly from your bulk campaign page. Choose if you want to import only your LinkedIn 1rst connections that have a 100% deliverable email, or your full connections list, even the few ones without 100% deliverable emails.

What's next? Use your LinkedIn Search CSV file in a targeted emailing campaign. 

Now that you have used Spylead to download all the emails and profiles data in a CSV file, you can import this contact list into your favourite emailing tool (like Lemlist, or Instantly.ai). 

Use all the information associated with each profile (gender, age, position, school...) to create ultra personalised emails.The more personalised your emails are, the more likely you are to get a reply from your prospect!
