LinkedIn is one of the best social media platforms for B2B lead generation

Not only do you have 900 million users to tap into for prospecting lists, but people use LinkedIn to expand their careers. 

It’s the perfect place for finding the right prospects who are interested in what you have to sell. 

The thing is if you have a long list of prospects (hopefully ultra-refined), using LinkedIn email scrapers can be incredibly helpful.

The reason? 

LinkedIn has restrictions in place for the amount of connections or InMails you can send per day. If you’re able to gather prospects’ email addresses as well, then you can supplement your prospecting campaigns with effective email outreach

This article will discuss how LinkedIn email scraping works, some of the best tools to use, and a step-by-step guide on how to do it for effective B2B outreach.

Understanding LinkedIn Email Scraping

What email scraping entails

LinkedIn email scrapers basically extract email addresses from LinkedIn profiles. In some cases, these emails are extracted by using bots or crawlers to compile a list of people to send emails to.

As you can imagine, there might be a ton of spammers who use this exact process to blast their dodgy marketing emails to prospects. You don’t want to fall into this category. 

But if you’re serious about B2B lead generation and you want actual results, you won’t use these tools in the wrong way. 

There are other tools on the market which are safer to use, which we will get into a bit later.

What are the benefits of using scraped emails for B2B lead generation?

Email scrapers can enhance lead-generation campaigns because if you can’t reach a prospect on Linkedin directly, you could send them a well-written personalized email instead. 

Besides this, it’s incredibly time-consuming trying to save email addresses off Linkedin manually.

Therefore using a tool to extract emails can save you a ton of time.

Ethical Considerations and LinkedIn’s Policies on Data Scraping

So as you can see above, LinkedIn doesn’t permit the use of any third-party software.

This includes crawlers or bots. 

If LinkedIn picks up that you are using these kinds of tools, the chances of having your account restricted or blocked will be pretty high. This is why we always suggest using these tools responsibly for low-volume, high-quality cold outreach.

In this way, you won’t get your account restricted and can make use of the best LinkedIn email extractor tools without stressing.

Step 4: Extract email addresses from LinkedIn profiles and connections

Note: Below is an example of how to use Apollo for extracting email addresses. Depending on which tool you have chosen, you might need to watch the tutorial to see how it’s done for email finding.

Depending on which tool you have decided to you, you can do the following:

1.)Launch your LinkedIn email finder of choice and click “search”

Remember to apply filters to help you narrow down your list. 

2.) You can then begin to extract email addresses to a CSV file.

Click export.

3.) Click confirm

Voila… You have your list of extracted verified email addresses, or Linkedin contacts.

Why it’s important to have verified email addresses

When email addresses aren’t verified it can lead to higher bounce rates.

Besides wasting time and resources, you could also end up with a bad sender reputation, which means that your emails could end up in the spam folder.

Most people don’t check their spam folder. This means that, even if you have crafted the perfect message, your prospect won’t see it. 

So make sure that you validate your email addresses before adding them to your CRM or email list

Some of the above tools that we mentioned verify email addresses automatically.

This might be something that you want to consider before choosing a specific email scraping tool, and one of its features is email verification

In conclusion

Whether you’re looking for business email or personal email addresses off Linkedin, these tools will make your prospecting work so much easier. 

Instead of having to manually find email addresses, simply choose a scraper of choice and let it do the heavy lifting for you.
