LinkedIn is a very powerful tool for identifying opportunities. Many of you who have been using LinkedIn for years or even months will have hundreds of connections. You most likely have spent a lot of valuable time connecting with these contacts and now you would love to add them into OnePageCRM in bulk.
LinkedIn don’t make a song and dance about their feature allowing you to export your connections to a .CSV file but I am going to do that for them here now.
Here are the simple steps involved:
After getting your connections into a .CSV file you can import these contacts into OnePageCRM in bulk using our Import contact from .CSV process. Unleash the potential, continue the engagement and fully exploit the great resource that is LinkedIn from within OnePageCRM.
To unleash the potential even further, you could export all your OnePageCRM contacts and then import them into LinkedIn. You can also export your contacts from other systems like your email marketing software or accounting system. The beauty here is that LinkedIn will automatically check if your contacts are users and if they are and you are not already connected, they will automatically send them an invite to connect with you!
Note: This will import your contacts into LinkedIn and sent them an invite to connect.
Warning: If you don’t want to connect with them, choose ‘Skip step’.
Warning: If you don’t want to send them invites to join, choose ‘Skip step’.
