LinkedIn is a powerhouse tool for finding and connecting with potential customers - where else can you see what your target audience are doing, saying, and working on right now? 

However, extracting actionable contact information on the platform isn't always straightforward, and manually trawling through LinkedIn profiles becomes time-consuming, diverting precious time away from selling and nurturing leads. 

We've got you covered with the best practices for finding email addresses on LinkedIn quickly and efficiently and uncover their contact details in less than 5 minutes!

How to find someone’s contact information on LinkedIn: 3 quick manual methods

When prospecting on LinkedIn, there are two primary approaches to find the contact data you need: manual search and utilizing tools. 

Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages in helping you uncover elusive email addresses.

Manual methods might be more time-consuming, but they’re more likely to yield accurate and reliable information because it’s data your prospect has added first-hand.

Here are 3 quick manual methods to start your search:

1. "Contact Info" section

One of the first places to check for contact information is the "Contact info" section located just below the user's headline on their profile. While often overlooked, this section can provide valuable details such as email addresses, phone numbers, and social media links. Unfortunately, not all users choose to populate this section, so it’s not always as useful as it could be!

2. Banner picture

If the "Contact Info" section yields no results, take a glance at the user's profile banner. Many users personalize their banners to include additional information about themselves, including contact details. While not as common as other methods, it's worth investigating before moving on.

3. LinkedIn bio:

Scrolling down to the user's bio section might also unveil their contact details. It's not uncommon for individuals to include their email addresses at the end of their "About" section as a call to action. 

The easiest way to find someone’s email from LinkedIn: use an email enrichment tool

While manual methods can be effective for finding individual emails, they lack scalability and efficiency. You’re also dependent on whether or not your prospects have voluntarily disclosed their contact information on their profile - and for understandable reasons, many people don’t.

The alternative to these manual methods is to find yourself a robust email extractor tool! This is a piece of software that cross-references your prospect’s LinkedIn profile with an extensive business database to fetch their email address automatically.

Tools like Amplemarket’s LinkedIn extension slot straight into your browser so you can pull prospect emails (and phone numbers) without leaving LinkedIn.

The best part about Amplemarket’s email extraction feature is that it incorporates automatic email validation so you obtain the most reliable and up-to-date contact information out there. You get fast access to accurate personal business details rather than company-level, “info@” addresses or central switchboards.

  1. Install the Amplemarket Chrome extension and log into LinkedIn.
  2. Navigate to your prospect’s profile page
  3. Click “Reveal email” in the extension

…and that’s it!
