Top 5 LinkedIn automation Chrome extensions [for Outreach]
Imagine LinkedIn automation Chrome extensions as robots that click and write for you on LinkedIn. They
- View profiles,
- Send personalized messages and
- Follow-up on autopilot
Freeing up your time and helping you achieve more than you could ever do solo.
Now, as you probably know, LinkedIn lets you reach only 100 potential customers per week.
This means you have just 100 shots a week. So, you need to have a very neatly targeted list of people who are your exact dream customers.
And it would help if you wrote sharp, pointed messages to grab their attention.
So if you’re on the hunt for the perfect LinkedIn extension that will view profiles, auto-connect, personalize the messages, and safely bypass LinkedIn limits for effective Outreach then you must meet -

Best 5 LinkedIn Lead Extractor Chrome Extensions
We saw how LinkedIn Chrome extensions can help you Outreach without breaking into a sweat.
Yet, one of the biggest challenges marketers face remains: discovering quality leads.
Good leads are the lifeblood of any growing business.
But then how do you get these?
Imagine being able to search for:
- Specific types of professionals
- Within a certain industry with
- Particular job titles?
The good news is, you can achieve all of this seamlessly with a Sales Navigator plan.
Sales Nav is loaded with cool features like
💥Advanced search filters: crucial for picking the right leads for your business.
💥Real-time updates about your leads: know when they change jobs, and add a skill to start conversations with them.
💥InMail credits: to directly message prospects even if you're not connected, and more.
But as great as Sales Nav may be, to transform your lead gen and boost sales you’ll probably need to support it with a LinkedIn Chrome extension.
Sales Nav is a lead database.
This means you’ll need help from other Chrome extensions to smoothly export all your leads and their contact details into a spreadsheet/CRM and then reach out to them.
That’s why I’ve put together my top 5 LinkedIn lead extractor Chrome extensions that can help you find the right leads for your business!
With Salesrobot on your side you’ll be able:
- Pull prospects from anywhere, be it LinkedIn events, groups, CSV Imports, etc.

Awesome. Just follow these steps:
1. Login to Salesrobot
2. Click “Campaigns” and “Create Campaign”
3. Select “I’m an advanced user”
4. Select “Add from Sales Nav Search”
5. Now, open LinkedIn sales navigator - use filters and create a list of your ideal clients. (Remember to keep the search result to less than 2500).
6. Now copy the Sales nav URL and paste it into Salesrobot
7. Follow the next steps and create a sequence of messages to be sent to these leads.
8. Save and Start the campaign
That’s it. It’s that easy.
There’s another cool add-on that I can’t wait to tell you about -
Salesrobot on its own, has a very nifty Data enrichment feature that lets you collect
📧Email IDs and
📱Phone numbers of your prospects
These are automatically enriched when you are running a campaign. So, when Salesrobot visits a profile to send connection requests, it also grabs their phone number.
To enable this super cool feature just head over to the Salesrobot app and go to
Setting -> Configuration -> Data enrichment -> and enable the toggle button
Once enabled the Data Enrichment feature will send you email IDs and phone numbers of your prospects from the Salesrobot database on autopilot.
And when your campaign wraps up, you can download all the verified leads in a neat sheet and save it for future reference.
All this and more without you lifting a finger. 🙌
