Sometimes it happens we are exchanging emails with a person and we don’t know how to quickly find her Linkedin profile.
We search for her name in Google and there are 19 people with the same name:
So there is a super interesting trick to quickly reveal who is the person behind an email address:
First I have to clarify that you don’t need a Linkedin Sales Navigator account, it works with your regular Linkedin account.
1- Install the Google Chrome extension “LinkedIn Sales Navigator” (I repeat: you don’t need a Sales Navigator subscription).
2- Enter to your Linkedin profile to make sure the extension is connected with your account.
3- Go to Gmail and enter to any received email, you can just write an email to yourself
4- Click on “Reply” and copy the emails into the “To:” box.
5- Hover your cursor over the email you want to identify the Linkedin profile:
… and BOOM, in your right screen, you can see his Linkedin details and enter to his profile URL.
This works with any email: personal and business emails:
So now you can engage more with your recipients in seconds and send Linkedin invitations without leaving Gmail.
Finally, if you want to do the opposite: get the email behind a Linkedin profile, you can always use SalesQL for free:
