Thousands of marketers use LinkedIn to get data.
They know this.
And recently, they put in stricter limits.
Profiles left and right are getting banned.
What if I told you there’s a better source than LinkedIn for data?
It’s called Angellist.
It’s not the company or job search.
It’s using their new feature: Source.
You can get it up and running in a few minutes.
This is how it works:
Register your company on Angellist with less than ten employees.
Now click on Recruit.
Upload a relevant job to the profiles you want to search for:
You can now view relevant people using the Source search:
Angellist returns relevant results:
You can also pay to filter by more criteria (hence why it’s important to put less than ten employees):
Here’s where the fun begins.
Look at the data you have available:
- Social profile links
- Job title
- Company name
- School name
All this data is yours.
Unlike on LinkedIn where you need to click through to a profile to retrieve data (same process that gets you banned), you can grab it here without ever clicking through.
Before you know it, you might have a thousand LinkedIn profiles of software founders.
Even Facebook profiles, too.
Talk about powerful.
Now you have the power back in your hands.
Want to build a sales machine?
You have the data to do it.
Time to rock’n’roll.
