How to extract my direct Linkedin connections
- First, you have to click on the SalesQL extension icon, click on the menú and click on "Download Connections":
You will be redirected to the Linkedin page where you can see your connections, before downloading the new contacts, I will create a project called "My Linkedin Connections", so the connections are going to be saved under this project:
- To start the process, you have to click on the button called "Add Connections", this button is only visible when you are in the Linkedin "Connections" page (see step 1):
- After clicking on "Add Connections", you will see a new window where you can set how many connections do you want to download, here you can see I have 148 connections, but I'm downloading 100 today:
- Clicking on "Start" will start the job, and you can see how SalesQL is adding contacts individually:
- After the job finishes, you should see the last page of contacts with their emails and phone numbers:
- If you want to see all your connections downloaded, you have to click on "Contacts" in the extension menú, which is going to open the SalesQL dashboard:
- Here you can see the 100 connections are now extracted to my SalesQL account, under the "My Linkedin Connections" project:
- If the day after, I try to download my connections again, you can see it is starting from page 3:
SalesQL automatically saves each day the last page/block (of 40 contacts) you have downloaded, so you don't have to remember each day, you can just start a new job from the last saved page (in this case, the page 3).
