Get meaningful data about targeted companies

Once with a list of companies, you don't always have the time to find info for each one of them. Let our agent do the work and collect a CSV with all the data you need.

Our Solution

Gather companies LinkedIn page URLs or Linkedin companies ID and fill a Google Spreadsheet with those. Once done, our agent will browse this spreadsheet and collect meaningfull data from the targeted businesses.

What will you need?

For this API you will just need two arguments:

  • "sessionCookie": Your session Cookie from Linkedin.
  • "spreadsheetUrl": Link to a Google Spreadsheet with Linkedin companies IDs or Linkedin companies URLs.

Which steps to follow?

1. Create an account on Phantombuster.com 💻

If you haven't already, create a FREE account on Phantombuster. Our service will browse the web for you. It’s a website automator which runs in the cloud. Once done we'll follow up.

2. Use this API on your account.👌

Now that you're connected to Phantombuster, Click on the following button (it will open a new tab).

3. Click on Configure me!

4. Linkedin authentication 🔑

(You already know how to get your sessionCookie? skip this part)
Because the script will manipulate LinkedIn for you, it needs to be logged in to your LinkedIn account. For that you just need to copy paste your session cookie in the script argument:

  • Using Chrome, go to your LinkedIn homepage and open the inspector
    → Right click anywhere on the page and select “Inspect”
    CMD+OPT+i on macOS
    or
    F12 or CTRL+MAJ+i on Windows

  • Locate the “Application” tab

  • Select “Cookies” > “http://www.linkedin.com” on the left menu.

  • Locate the “li_at” cookie.

  • Copy what’s under “Value” (Double click on it then Ctrl+C) and paste it into your script Argument)
