How to Create a List of LinkedIn Connections with New Jobs
Harness the capabilities of Clay to monitor your first-degree LinkedIn connections who have recently secured new jobs. With Clay, Sales Navigator, and PhantomBuster, this can be an engaging process.
Step 1: Prerequisites
Before you start, make sure you have an account with Clay, Sales Navigator, and PhantomBuster. The integration of these three tools will give you the resources needed to execute this plan.
Step 2: Set Up Your Sales Navigator Search
Navigate to Sales Navigator and initiate your search. Firstly, add your first-degree connections to the search criteria. In the 'Spotlight' section, select 'Activities and shared experiences,' then choose 'Changed jobs in the last 90 days.' This will generate a list of your connections who fit these criteria.
Step 3: Prepare PhantomBuster Run
Now that your Sales Navigator search is set up, configure PhantomBuster's Sales Navigator Search Export. Connect your LinkedIn cookies, then input the Sales Navigator search URL. Set the number of results to scrape per launch at 2,500 and enable 'Watcher mode' in the advanced settings. This mode will avoid reprocessing profiles already listed. Save your settings.
Step 4: Launch Phantom Buster
Before setting up a recurring schedule, launch PhantomBuster manually once to scrape the entire result. After the manual run, set Phantom Buster to run automatically once per week. This will keep your list updated with newly changed jobs.
Step 5: Pull Phantom Buster Records into Clay
After running Phantom Buster, import the records into a Clay table. By adding Phantom Buster as your source and connecting your account, you can import all relevant information. This includes the person's name, job title, tenure at role and company, and LinkedIn profile URL.
Step 6: Enrich Data
Using the 'Enrich Person from Search' function in Clay, input the person's name and company name to connect all profiles. You can then get the company URL from the Phantom Buster search, allowing you to find their work email and LinkedIn URL.
Step 7: Update Your Contacts
With the person's email, you can automatically create new contacts in your CRM like HubSpot. Alternatively, you can set up Phantom Buster to send automated messages to your contacts when they switch jobs.
By following these steps, you can effectively monitor your LinkedIn network's career transitions, enabling opportunities for engagement and outreach. Enjoy this streamlined way of tracking your network's job changes!
