2. Professional email addresses

Extracting email addresses or phone numbers from LinkedIn Sales Navigator can be tricky for a few reasons:

  • Only about 10% of them are available.
  • Many of these emails tend to be outdated, which means you might not get much of a response. (or worse, hurt your sender reputation)

That’s where exporting searches with Prospeo comes in handy! It doesn’t just extract emails from Linkedin Sales Navigator; it actively finds professional email addresses.

By using all the information available on the LinkedIn profile, Prospeo manages to find around 45% of updated email addresses, making it one of the best email finders out there.

According to an independent study conducted by Eric Nowoslawski and, Prospeo finds, on average, 20% more emails than its competitors!

How many leads can I export?

LinkedIn, including LinkedIn Sales Navigator, does have some limitations. Here are two key limitations to keep in mind when exporting on Sales Navigator:

  1. LinkedIn Search Limit: You can’t see more than 2500 leads per search. (Keep reading to understand how to export bigger lists 😉)
  2. Daily Sales Navigator Export Limit: You can’t export more than 5000 leads per days.

These high limitation makes using your Sales Navigator account for lead generation is ideal.

1. LinkedIn Search Limit

When you’re searching for leads on LinkedIn Sales Navigator, if your results exceed 2500, you won’t be able to access any beyond that number.

This is because LinkedIn displays only the first 100 pages of the search, with 25 leads per page, allowing you to view and extract a maximum of 2500 leads.

For company searches, the limit is 1,000 companies because LinkedIn allows access to only the first 40 pages of this type of search

But don’t worry, there’s a workaround! To extract more emails and leads from Sales Navigator, you can split your search into smaller ones using filters. Here’s a helpful video tutorial to guide you:

2. Daily Sales Navigator export limit

LinkedIn does tolerate automation tools since many salespeople rely on them, but it’s well-known that using these tools goes against LinkedIn’s regulations.

Therefore, it’s crucial to avoid excessive use of any automation tools, including Prospeo, to stay safe.

Prospeo doesn’t use your LinkedIn account to open profiles: its extraction system operates entirely in the cloud. This allows you to export your LinkedIn Sales Navigator searches and lists using external accounts. This approach ensures that your account remains in a completely safe zone.

For this reason, you can export up to 5000 LinkedIn leads daily, compared to the 1000-lead limit often imposed by other providers.

This makes LinkedIn data ideal for lead generation and cold emailing.
