How to extract Linkedin Contacts

Your LinkedIn profile is a goldmine. Time to dig for some gold.

I ask a lot of people what they do with their LinkedIn profile and most often the answer is that people look for jobs, read some articles, ‘connect’ with people and that’s largely it. What most people don’t seem to realise is that this most important professional network they are on, can open a lot of new doors for them, only if they realise to use it wisely. This is the first in a series of articles where we try and see what LinkedIn can do for  you.

For all you sales professionals, HR managers, and all the people wanting to get in touch with people, this is how you can extract EMail IDs of all your contacts on LinkedIn.

The email ids you extract here can be used for multiple purposes, right from targeting custom audiences on Facebook, EMail Marketing, direct one on one marketing and so on. Ideally, you must keep taking a download of this data for you never know when LinkedIn stops allowing users to do it. So if you haven’t done it so far, then right now wouldn’t be too bad a time either :)
