⚠️ Warning : Don't overuse this tool. It's using your personnal API token binding your Outlook and LinkedIn account. If you're spamming the LinkedIn API servers, your LinkedIn account may be restricted. So I recommend about a hundred uses per day maximum. Or do it with a second LinkedIn account.

ℹ️ Fact : You should have more matchs with personnal email than profesionnal email since people are registering on LinkedIn with their personnal email.


1) You can direclty use the Visum API with our Zap !

To achieve our goal, you'll need to get your Outlook token with our extension and by following the different step of our previous tutorial :

2) How to setup the Zap

Before all, add into your CRM a new contact with the following informations :
- lastname : Keraval
- firstname : Julien
- email : keraval.julien@gmail.com

This way we are sure that you will be able to follow the tutorial without any problems.

ℹ️ We used Hubspot for this tutorial, but you can use any CRM which is compatible with Zapier.

To setup this Zap, you have to connect your Hubspot (or other CRM) account :

If this is the first time, a window will open to ask to login for giving the permissions :

Then you have to setup the most important part of this Zap : the LinkedIn Finder with the Visum API.

You can leave all the inputs values by default except :
- URL : https://api.visum.run/enrichment/v1/linkedin-finder
- Payload Type : json
Add theses attributes in the Data section :
- mail : select the Hubspot contact mail
- token : you can retrieve it with our extension
Add this attribute in the Headers section :
- Content-Type : application/json

This step is pretty simple. The process will continue by checking if the LinkedIn User Id is found and exist.

You're almost done ! From here you can do whatever you want 🔥

In this tutorial we simply show you how to update your CRM's contact informations.
Be sure to select the Hubpost Object ID of your contact in order to update it :

Select the attributes you want to update such the LinkedIn profile, firstname, lastname, job position, company etc...


3) Bonus : a full resume of our contact on Discord

Since Outlook and our API returns a lot of useful informations, we like to have a notification on discord with a resume of the new customer or user.

We achieved this with the Discord Zapier integration and this configuration :

And this is the result on Discord each time a new contact is registered 🚀 :


And that's it for today ! 🔥
