If you have ever dabbled in sales and networking, you must be aware of the tediousness of finding contacts of people at your targeted companies. Even if you do get the contact from somewhere, ensuring that it is verified is another uphill climb.
With ColdCRM’s B2B email and phone databases, you can find anybody’s professional contacts in just a few minutes. ColdCRM allows you to search for target companies/people through multiple media, including social media URLs or even occupational details like company name and designation.
One of ColdCRM’s most powerful search engines allows you to find contacts of people with just their names and country (for better results).
Input the name of the company and country and click on ‘Search’. It shows you the list of people in the organisation.
Select the names you want the numbers for and then click on ‘Get phone for selected’.
It shows the numbers in its database and an option to get numbers from Cerebro for the ones that are not available with it.
While the web app allows you to search for email addresses and contact numbers from just the names, what if you want to search directly from LinkedIn, by using their premium filters?
In this case, we recommend using ColdCRM’s Chrome extension, if you’re using the Chrome browser.
The Chrome extension allows you to plug-in the software and let it do the rest of the work for you. It works just as well with:
- LinkedIn Recruiter
- LinkedIn Sales Navigator
- Regular LinkedIn
- LinkedIn Profile
- Sales Navigator Leads list
In this article, we’ll show you how to use the ColdCRM Chrome extension with regular LinkedIn, but the functionality remains similar for other LinkedIn products too. With the ColdCRM Chrome extension, you can find mass emails, a user’s phone number, and check if a Linkedin profile already exists in your CRM.
Step 1 : Install the ColdCRM extension from Chrome web store.
Step 2: After installation, go to LinkedIn and open a person’s profile or a search page.
Once you have your search results, open the extension by clicking on the ColdCRM logo on the top right of your browser window. It displays the results in the ColdCRM window.
Step 3 : Click on ’Search all’ and then the email and phone icons on the right of each profile to get the contact details available (emails and phone numbers) of all profiles visible on that page.
For the email addresses that are not available in the tool’s database, it gives you the option to ‘Try with Cerebro’ database.
Normally, a LinkedIn search page shows only 10 results in one while the Sales Navigator shows you 25.
All email addresses that ColdCRM’s extension extracts for you are cent percent verified by professionals. Therefore, there is no need to pay for another email verification tool or a vendor.
Next to each email address, there are green, orange or gray dots (screenshot below shows green dot only).
The dots represent the bounce rates on the given email IDs. A green dot means that the email address has a bounce rate of less than 3%. Orange dot means the bounce rate is between 3% to 7% and gray dot implies that the bounce rate can be as high as 10% to 25%.
After getting the search results, you also have an option to add all LinkedIn contacts in a ColdCRM list. It allows you to add all contact or only those whose contact information was found by the extension.
Adding all contacts to a list means that even if you don’t find their contact information in the first go, you can always come back to them later and try again since the databases used by ColdCRM are updated every 8 hours.
Adding to that, even if you can’t find an email address using the Chrome extension, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is no contact information available. Since the technology used by the tool finds email addresses and phone numbers independent of each other, there is always a chance of getting either of the two, even if not both.
Step 4 : Act massively
If you are using the LinkedIn Sales Navigator platform, you can also mention the number of contacts you want and then click on ‘Get All Prospects’ to receive up to 1500 contacts in one go. The CRM bot then extracts and retrieves all contacts without even visiting the LinkedIn profiles and shares the consolidated CSV of the contact information acquired on your email address.
This CSV file can then be uploaded on the ColdCRM website using bulk tools to enhance it with more contact information like emails, direct telephone lines and other coordinates.
The results shared by ColdCRM have been analysed and confirmed by multiple third-party reviewers and their findings claim that the deliverability of emails through this extension is highest among all email finder tools in the market.
If you are struggling with keeping a track of your leads and extracting verified contact information among hoards of hoax platforms in the market, give ColdCRM a try and let us know how you found it!
