Going bulk with Linkedin search

So what can we do at this point? go to Linkedin?

Well, you can use the Linkedin sales navigator. but of course, besides this a paid tool, you can download contacts in bulk.

The issue is, you’re not going to get any direct links for those searched profiles. so you’ll have to visit them one by one – and still the same problem is there. A waste of precious time.

So what can you do about it?

There are a few tools out there that can help you, but some of them requires you to connect to your Linkedin account – which might be risky if you’re overusing it.
