You can import contacts from LinkedIn / Sales Navigator / Recruiter Search results, Saved lists, Recruiter projects, Groups. LinkedIn Events and Posts.

To import contacts into We-Connect, please copy the search results URL and then paste it on We-Connect and hit the save & import button.

Let me explain the steps below:

Step 1:

On the We-Connect Search menu page, select the Search tab and choose the Search type. There are 4 types:

  • LinkedIn Search URL - You can select this option to import Search results from LinkedIn / Sales Navigator / Recruiter Search results, Saved lists, Recruiter projects

  • LinkedIn Group URL - You can select this option to import contacts from Groups using Group URL or search results URL from SN with group filter.

  • LinkedIn Events - You can select this option to import event attendees from LinkedIn Events.

  • LinkedIn Posts - You can select this option to Import list of contacts engaged in LinkedIn posts.

Step 2:

  • Copy the URL from LinkedIn based on the search type you have selected on Step 1 and paste it in We-Connect.

  • Enter a name for the list you want to import.

  • Select the Connection type - You can either choose 1st connections or 2nd and 3rd+ connections.

  • Hit the Save & Import button.

The list is now saved and the system will start importing the contacts in the background.

Note:

  1. If you are using Sales Navigator, you can also save the search first. Then copy-paste the saved search URL. Checkout this article on how to save a search on Sales Navigator.

  2. The search will display up to 2500 results if you are using Sales Navigator and 1000 if you are using a free LinkedIn account. Unnamed profiles i.e., "LinkedIn members," will not be included since you can not invite unnamed or anonymous contacts. Your search count will also vary in case you are comparing the LinkedIn search count with We-Connect because We-Connect does not count the anonymous profiles.

  3. The search results may take about 10 minutes to display all your results.
