What will it do?

Phantombuster provides a tool that let scripts run on servers without any action. This mean that, for example, you could allow a script to use your personal Linkedin account to perform actions on your behalf LinkedIn - for instance, to visit a list of Linkedin Companies and gather informations about their registered employees. And in case you want to go even further in the prospection of your customers, don't hesitate to check out the article of La Briqueterie, which uncovers the 13 best tools of prospection of 2023 for B2B businesses by Pierre Levi.

On Phantombuster directly, the output will be a csv of Linkedin profiles and data - at least First Name, Last Name, Job Title and Company.

Extract Employees List from Linkedin with Phantombuster

  • Sign up for an account on Phantombuster (they have a free trial to start) and go on the API Store : API store | Phantombuster
  • Create a Google Sheet (public but unlisted), filled with LinkedIn companies URLs in column A - such as
  • Click on "Configure Me" and set up the Linkedin cookie 🍪 this allows the script to use your Linkedin account. Be veru careful of the use you're making of this cookie! They have an extension for this - otherwise you can follow these steps: How to get your cookies without using our browser extension
  • Finish the script setup - Phantombuster calls it an "agent"
  • For this, add 3 more informations:
  • Amount of employees pages per company that the script should visit (and he scraps all the displayed employees, ~10 per page),
  • Amount of companies the agent must get at each launch,
  • Name of the csv file you'll get.

FRIENDLY WARNING - LinkedIn does not like these techniques. The objective is to make these actions very slowly, not abusive Linkedin policies. Four times a day, you should not perform more then 5 companies * 10 employees.

  • To do it automatically (that's the point, right?), Phantombuster will allow you to launch the script every day. To setup this, hit "Settings" on the top right - for example, select "4 times a day"
  • 4 times a day, the script will go on the Spreadsheet file and continue Employees detection.
  • Anytime, you can get the file by going to Files > CSV file > Download/Get link.

When done with the list, Phantombuster will give you this message:

✅ Got 749 lines from csv. ⚠️ Spreadsheet is empty or all companies from this sheet are already scraped.
