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.

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!

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

1) I'd like to be able to create an Autofill by LinkedIn button

2) I'd like to map the fields on my Hubspot form to standard LinkedIn fields; 3) I'd like to add the code for an "Autofill with LinkedIn" button to my HubSpot landing pages;

4) When a visitor clicks this Autofill button, I want to auto-populate the HubSpot form with mapped LinkedIn data

5) I'd like the visitor to simply click OK to add their contact details as a new HubSpot contact

Yes, I totally agree. This will be very usefull to add LinkedIn profile of each contact automatically.

Absolutely essential. We need a slick (automatic?) way to link data from Linkedin to Hubspot (when the indivual is a connection and the email matches). Linkedin URL and photo, company and role are essential plus phone if given. Also Linkedin messages should be synched.

This would be a game changer for us. Totally useful. I used to work for a company called Colleague Softwaare who had actually built a parser that extracted lots of data from the Linkedin prfile and entered it into the CRM. Like forename, surename, email, phone, company name, job title, city, country. Obviously you would only get email and phone if you were connected.

@MarcoBarata Hi Marco, if I am understanding your question you are asking me which tools solves the LinkedIn to HubSpot problem?

If so, I don't mind sharing it is: www.linkedhub.io

Zoominfo has an extension that exports LinkedIn contacts > Salesforce which works extremely well. I'm back in a startup so I'm using HubSpot but if there was a way for HubSpot to be able to export just he basic information from LinkedIn into it's CRM this would be a HUGE value add that I'd pay for.
