Automatically search LinkedIn for contact and add contact profile link and image to HubSpot profile

So I'm using a competitors CRM and their CRM automatically searches LinkedIn and adds the persons LinkedIn profile URL link and also pulls their photo from LinkedIn and adds it to their contact card.

 

HubSpot doesn't do this.  Which is a pity.  

 

If HubSpot did this it would be much better.

Similar to the twitter link, a link to their Linkedin profile would be extremely helpful with researching and connecting to leads!

Official response:

We can't comment on other companies and their practices, however, HubSpot strongly discourages you or your end-users from violating the terms or policies of a third party. 

 

Takeaway:

Our lawyers believe that the request above ("automatically search[ing] LinkedIn and add[ing] the persons LinkedIn profile URL link and also pull[ing] their photo from LinkedIn and add[ing] it to their contact card.") violates LinkedIn's terms of service, so we're not going to do it.

This is not currently supported by their official APIs and the existing solutions which do this are frowned upon by LinkedIn (and possibly against their terms of service).

 

We're always looking to deepen our integrations with LinkedIn and are looking for further partnership opportunities, but automatically searching LinkedIn for additional data on a prospect (or auto creating contacts directly from LinkedIn who haven't opted in) is not something that we are planning to do.

Hi All,

 

Thanks for your comments on the idea!  Have you seen the HubSpot Sales Navigator integration? https://www.hubspot.com/product-updates/linkedin-sales-navigator-hubspot-crm-integration 

What do you think about it? Does it solve your concerns? 

 

Would love to understand what we can do to make this most useful for you!

Would it work to add ability to search for contact names within a company based on a given job title?  When we buy lists, data is often 5-10 years out of date.  Company names remain the same, and most phone numbers, but contacts change.  Often the best a list seller can offer is the CEO or other executive, who are difficult to reach.  We need the ability to find other contacts based on title, and LinkedIn would provide a mostly up-to-date list of names.

To add on to this query, Can Linkedin profile  (or the  sales navigotor etc. ) be linked with Hubspot? If yes, how to do that.

@marketingcafe  @RT - Yes, a LinkedIn profile can be linked to HubSpot using a chrome extension: www.linkedhub.io

Here is a video demonstration:

One large piece of this puzzle is now solved. The ability to add someone from LinkedIn into HubSpot. You can accomplish this through a google chrome extension: www.linkedhub.io

To be clear, I am offering a solution specifically to the problem of gathering info from LinkedIn not gmail.

I am the maker of this extension so I welcome any requests for help or questions.

The Rapportive Gmail extenstion performs this task well. Would be nice to see something linke this in Hubspot.
