LinkedIn Scraper Tool for Post Likers and Commenters

If you were looking for a tool to scrape profiles on LinkedIn, this tutorial is for you. With over 310 million monthly active users, LinkedIn is a powerful source of leads. People who like and comment posts related to your niche or industry could be potentially interested in what you offer. What if you could scrape their contact details, so as to be able to deploy a mass messaging campaign? 

If your company struggles to make a budget for marketing, your only choice would be to publish high-quality content in order to create an audience (or communicate with your current client base).

1. Prepare a List of Popular LinkedIn Posts

You are still in the preparation part. In order to find some posts related to your activity or niche, make a simple search on LinkedIn. Type a keyword linked to your product or service. In this case, let’s say you own a coffee shop. You then look for coffee. Make sure to filter the results, so as to get posts containing your keyword.

Now it’s just a matter of choosing the post with the most likes and comments. It goes without saying that the post should be related to your business (not just someone using the word coffee as a metaphor).

Once you have identified your targeted posts, follow the author of the post. If it’s a group, join it, in order to be able to access its members’ profiles. Then copy the URL of the post and paste it in a Google spreadsheet. Keep this document close to you, as PhoneBot will need it to execute your task.

Once you have downloaded, installed and correctly activated the PhoneBot software on your computer, you need to create a campaign and configure the desired task.

Another way to access the task is by using the left menu. There you will find all the tasks sorted by categories and platforms.

Make sure to choose the right task. If you accidentally click on the wrong one, you can unselect it at any time.

THE TARGETS

Provide PhoneBot the Google spreadsheet containing the targeted posts’ URLs. We have previously seen how to find popular LinkedIn posts using the LinkedIn search tool. All you need to do is copy and paste the URL of your spreadsheet in the corresponding field.

ENABLE TASK AND CAMPAIGN

Once you’ve pasted the Google spreadsheet URL, do not forget to save your configuration and enable your task.
