Are you someone who thinks that scraping LinkedIn profile data is difficult and requires coding and tech knowledge? You are not alone, I was thinking the same until I took one of my client’s projects where he wanted me to scrape 100k profile data from over 20 Investment banking firms.
It was a huge task in itself and a big challenge for me. I did not have any coding knowledge or know how to install python. I had to rely on the automated tools that were available on the Internet.
My clients had certain requirements and thus it made this task even more difficult. He wanted not just the current data from the LinkedIn profile, For Example, Current Education and Experience details. He wanted Past and Present Education and Experience details of the person.
I tried many software and chrome extensions Including Phantombuster but none of them gave results that satisfied my clients expectations.
After a lot of frustration and Internet research, I landed with a tool that solved my problem and I was able to scrape 100k of data in a span of 30 Days that makes it around 3400 LinkedIn profile data per day.
1) LinkedIn Sales Navigator account:
It is one of the Important tools for scraping LinkedIn profile data, If you do not know much about what is a LinkedIn sales Navigator account and how to operate it, I would recommend watching some youtube videos but It is not that difficult for a person who can read and understand this article.
