How convenient would a seamless LinkedIn Salesforce integration be? You want an app or a chrome extension that lets you work with LinkedIn, then export your contacts (with email addresses and phone numbers) into Salesforce as you do.
This means a sync between your LinkedIn profile into Salesforce so they integrate and work together.
Can you sync your LinkedIn into Salesforce?
Yes, but only using a third-party LinkedIn integration CRM extension. The extension needs to be safe – so it cannot use automation. Fill out the form below and we can get you integrated.
Which CRM do you want to integrate into?
Do you use Sales Navigator?
LinkedIn Sales Navigator Integration with Salesforce is equally possible using the same chrome extension. If you use the free, public version of LinkedIn, it works just as well.
Is a LinkedIn Salesforce Integration Expensive?
No. For a few dollars a month per user, you can sync data between LinkedIn and CRM. Unless you want something very fancy, little technical development (if any is required).
The cost of the data sync can be prohibitive if your needs are complex. However, the data coming from Linkedin is finite, and therefore straightforward, containing mainly:
- Job title
- LinkedIn profile URL
- Mobile / Work number
- Email address
CRM integration complexity (and therefore cost) is complicated by tags and triggers and what the CRM has to offer. If you want to import tags into the CRM, then it’s more complicated. If you want to trigger events in your CRM when an event occurs (such as triggering an email), then this is also possible.
Fill out the form above and we will assist you to get Salesforce in sync with LinkedIn.
Two LinkedIn Salesforce Integration Options:
There are two ways of integrating. You can either:
- Use a Chrome Extension to scrape your entire LinkedIn database and give you one huge database (be careful, this will land you in hot water).
- Use a Chrome Extension that watches you as you work on LinkedIn, importing and updating your CRM as you go along. (Recommended!)
Chrome extensions that export LinkedIn email addresses are dangerous. The secret is to use a tool that manually lets you add the right quality LinkedIn contacts, with email addresses and phone numbers, to connect and import them automatically one by one into your CRM.
This also works for past, first-degree LinkedIn connections. As the salesperson works on LinkedIn, the fields they work with are synced CRM.
You can use a Chrome Extension to do it, but you’ll need 30 minutes of training on how to integrate.
Common CRMs that Integrate with LinkedIn
The most common CRMs that we are asked to integrate LinkedIn with our chrome extension are:
- Zoho CRM
- Sugar CRM
- Work, etc.
- Insightly CRM
- Keep / Infusionsoft
- Creatio / BPM
- Capsule CRM
- Sage CRM
- Microsoft Dynamics
In some cases, the integration can get technical. The secret is to keep it really simple and know upfront what you want to do with the data once it’s triggered in your CRM.
For example, with certain CRMs the integration is mostly already “done for you” – simply plug and play. However, in other circumstances, we need to customise it.
Again, we ask the question: do you know what data you need from LinkedIn? If so, please fill out the form above, and let’s get talking.
Is there a LinkedIn API that allows me to pull LinkedIn data into Salesforce?
Yes and no: ie. indirectly. LinkedIn doesn’t have an API, but we do.
Developers can pull their data from our RESTful LinkedIn / CRM API. Request an API key and start consuming the API right away! Use our interactive API documentation (available via https://api.mymosttrusted.net/) to view the API specification and use the Swagger UI to try out API calls directly in the browser.
The CRM / Linkedin API has predictable resource-oriented URLs, accepts JSON-encoded request bodies and path and query parameters, returns JSON-encoded responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes, authentication, and verbs.
From LinkedIn Lead Generation to Salesforce in 0 clicks
Yes, 0 clicks. This is because the extension needs to “watch you” as you work with your LinkedIn leads and, behind the scenes, automatically import them into your CRM.
We need to know your specific integration requirements and workshop. For example, do you need to integrate Sales Navigator or the free, public version of LinkedIn? Or both? Tell us above, and we’ll help.
Example / Case Study of a LinkedIn / CRM Integration
Can you automatically or manually move data from a LinkedIn profile into the CRM?
Yes and yes.
Automatic LinkedIn Salesforce integration occurs by default. As the user works with LinkedIn and pulls data into the chrome extension, the extension watches what you are doing and pushes the data collected into the CRM.
Manual integration occurs when you need to create a specific tag. When the tag is created, this activates the webhooks and sync’s the LinkedIn data with CRM.
Naturally, there is a chrome extension that is required to accomplish this. Fill out the form above, so we can get your specific details to get in touch and make it work for you.
There are some very useful additional features that you can use over and above merely LinkedIn Salesforce Integration:
- Tag the contacts in our tool and pass the tags through to your CRM
- Any messages or notes you have kept can be pushed into CRM
- Provide quick LinkedIn message templates so you don’t have to keep typing the same message over and over
- Track link clicks in your LinkedIn messages and notifies your CRM that a tracking link has been clicked
- Trigger an email from your CRM to the LinkedIn contact that you have just added
- Select what content from LinkedIn you want to be pushed.
