Why Scraping Emails from Linkedin Sales Navigator is not Always a Good Idea

If you want an efficient linkedin lead generation process, you should use an email finder rather than a scraper to get emails from linkedin sales navigator.

Reason #1: emails are outdated

The email added in the contact details section are often given when you create your linkedin profile.

As the linkedin profile gets older, there are more chances that the email provided is outdated or not from the right company

On this example when it can see the real email address is given in the about section, and it’s different from the ones given in the contact details.

Reason #2: there is a majority of personal emails

Prospecting using personal email addresses is not GDPR-compliant.

If you prospect EU citizens using personal emails, you expose your business to a fine that can go up to 4% of your annual global turnover.

Plus your prospect won’t appreciate that you used their personal email addresses for business prospecting.

It’s an infringement in their personal life.

Reason #3: Emails are not verified

Most email finder will instantly check if the email really exists by sending request to emails servers

The verification step is really important, because if you shoot too many email addresses that don’t exist, email providers will think you’re a spammer.

You will not land in the main inbox of your prospects anymore.

If you still want to use emails scraped from linkedin sales navigator, make sure to upload them on a tool like Zerobounce that will check the validity of the email addresses.

To protect your email deliverability, you must ensure that every email addresses you shoot is valid or catch-all

But what is a catch-all exactly?

A catch-all email is an email server that collects all the emails sent to your domain name. Even if the email address does not exist.

So any emails sent to misspelled recipients at your domain will be “caught” by the catchall account.

That way it’s impossible to check if the email really exists.
