How to Get Emails From Linkedin Sales Navigator?

Here is how to get emails from Linkedin Sales Navigator:

  1. Launch an extract with Evaboot
  2. Click on the “Find Emails” button

1. Export data with Evaboot

To optimize the efficiency of any email finder, you need to provide the right data points. All the email finder will ask you 4 things to do their job correctly:

  1. First Name
  2. Last Name
  3. Company Name
  4. Company Domain

Most people don’t always provide company domain, but this is a huge mistake.

Providing the domain will increase verified email discovery by 10-20%!

how emails finders work

When you don’t give a website directly to an email finder, the email finder will go on Google and try to find the website for you.

If the company name you provide is really specific (like Welcome To the Jungle for example), the email finder will not struggle to find the correct website, because not so many companies are named like that.

On the other hand, if the company name is something really generic like ABC Digital Consulting, there is a chance many companies are name like that and dozens of websites exist for this name (.co, .com, .ai, .io, etc…)

The email finder won’t find the correct domain name you are looking for every time…

And you will end-up contacting the wrong prospects.

So, remember to always provide the websites to email finders.

2. Click on the “Find Emails” button

After your extraction is over, you can use the Evaboot email finder to add emails to your file.

Simply click on the “Find Emails” button.

Linkedin Sales Navigator Extraction Limitations

There are two limitations to know when you export from linkedin sales navigator lead lists:

  1. The search results limitation
  2. The daily extraction limitation

1. The search results limitation

This limit exists because LinkedIn only shows 100 pages of 25 results on Sales Navigator, and there are 25 prospects per page (25*100=2500).

sales navigator export leads limits

LinkedIn imposes this limit to protect it database from abusive extractors that want to extract all data available on LinkedIn.

So if there is more than 2500 prospects in your search, you’ll need to split it into several chunks to be able to extract all your leads from Sales Navigator.

For the account search, the results are limited to 1000 accounts (40 pages of 25 accounts each)

account search page limitation sales navigator

2. The daily extraction limitation

LinkedIn has built technical systems to protect it database from abusive extractors.

Among them, the limitation of page visits.

Evaboot limits Sales Navigator lead export to 2500 per day to guarantee the safety of your account.

We will automatically block you if you try to go beyond that limit.

Notes 

Be careful if you use Evaboot + another tool. You will be able to export more than 2.5K leads, but this will really endanger your Linkedin account.
