Let’s see how to extract company details from the sales navigator
Here we will see the step-by-step execution of the automation to scrape the company details from the sales navigator.
The whole execution will play around these 5 input points & the total time to execute this will be around 1-2 minutes, depending on the number of profiles. Here’s what each of the input points means:
- Linkedin Session Cookie: Linkedin uses this piece of information to ensure it’s really you who’s using the LinkedIn profile.
- Company/Sales Navigator URL: Input the company URL here if you want to scrape data from just one company. If you have more than one company, upload the CSV or link a Google Sheet.
- Extract Company Details: Clicking on this button will immediately start the execution.
- Schedule this spice: You can schedule running this spice if you have too big of a list to finish in one day. You can schedule the execution every day, on specific days of the week or month. You can even schedule the execution multiple times a day.
Note: The execution happens on the cloud so you don’t have to keep the browser open for scheduled executions.
Now that you know about input points, let’s take a look at the individual steps of the execution.
How to scrape details of companies from the sales navigator using TexAu?
Step 1: Create a TexAu account & authenticate the LinkedIn Session cookie
Once your account is set up and you have completed the onboarding, visit the automation page. TexAu acts on your behalf on LinkedIn to run this automation. TexAu is the safest automation platform on the web, it uses your LinkedIn session cookie to authenticate as you to run this automation. We never ask for your login credentials. To make filling session cookies easier, you can use the TexAu Chrome extension. This process only requires 2 clicks.
- Download TexAu Extension for Chrome here: TexAu Chrome Extension [Used and loved by over 4000+ customers]
- Refresh your automation page and click on the Get Cookie button, as shown in the image above.
In case you are not using Chrome, check this guide on how to get cookies manually from your browser. We are working hard to bring our extension to all the major browsers very soon.
Step 2: Upload the CSV or paste Google sheet URL
If you have a CSV, simply upload it from your PC. If you have a Google Sheet, there are some extra steps.
- First, paste the Google sheet’s URL.
- Either get the Linkedin session cookie manually or use our chrome extension to do it by the click of a button.
- Input the column containing the profile URLs. Make sure you choose the right one for successful execution.
- Check if you want to find email & have a premium account
As a final touch, make sure you have set the sheet as public (as shown below) so the TexAu can access it.
Step 3: Start execution or schedule the automation
Clicking on “Extract company details” will immediately start the execution. It usually takes 1-2 minutes for the automation to finish, but depending on the number of company URLs it might take longer.
Scheduling the automation will give you additional points to control the execution. You can choose specific days of the week or month, specific times daily. You can even set specific start & end times for the execution.
The advantage of automating the whole process is that you don’t have to actively sit in front of your PC while TexAu does its job.
Step 4: Download execution results to your local PC
Once you click on “Extract company details” & after the execution is completed, you will see an execution window at the bottom of your screen:
Lastly, click on the ‘Result’ button where you can view your results & download the result as a CSV file as shown below.
Note: Alternatively you can download results from the results menu on the left-hand navigation, just hover over the menu & click on Results as shown below:
