How to automatically find the LinkedIn Profiles of a list of names?

You have a prospect list but you only have names and perhaps a company. How to quickly transform it into something valuable?

This automated LinkedIn scraper will help you turn a dry prospect's list into valuable LinkedIn Profile URLs. Starting from a spreadsheet filled with a list of names, Phantombuster will use Web search engines to automatically match names with their LinkedIn profile URLs.

Combine API and set your Prospection process on automatic: Once you'll have this list of Profiles, you'll be able to use other Phantombuster tools to transform these people into valuable leads.

For instance, use LinkedIn Network Booster and automatically connect with them on LinkedIn. Or extract their email addresses with Hunter.io or DropContact.io.
