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:

  1. City
  2. Bio
  3. Social profile links
  4. Job title
  5. Company name
  6. 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?

A community?

You have the data to do it.

Time to rock’n’roll.
