Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

01 How do I use the app?
  • Installation: After installing the LinkedIn Lookup App, it will appear in the right sidebar when viewing a contact record in HubSpot.
  • Automatic Enrichment: For Plus plan users, the app automatically enriches all new contacts in HubSpot with LinkedIn profile URLs every night. This means there may be a slight delay before the data is visible in HubSpot.
  • Manual Retrieval: Free plan users receive 10 credits to manually retrieve LinkedIn profile URLs via the HubSpot Cards on the right side of a contact record.
  • Further Instructions: For step-by-step instructions on using the app, please refer to the installation guide at the top of the page.
02 Where will the data be stored?
  • Once the LinkedIn Lookup App is installed, specific fields are created in your HubSpot contact records.
  • The key field, "LinkedIn Profile Page," will store the LinkedIn profile URLs.
  • To make these fields directly visible in your HubSpot environment, follow the instructions in step 4 of the installation guide.
  • This guide provides detailed steps to display the fields at both the individual user level and across the entire organization.

03 Which users can use the app?

The app is available to all HubSpot users within your organization.

04 Why can't LinkedIn data be found for a contact in HubSpot?

If the contact information in HubSpot (first name, last name, and company name) does not closely match LinkedIn data, the LinkedIn Lookup App may not find a match. In such cases, ensure that the contact details in HubSpot are accurate and complete. The app relies on precise information to identify the correct LinkedIn profiles. If multiple options are available, you may need to manually verify and select the appropriate profile.

05 Why don't I see the enriched data immediately in HubSpot?
When manually retrieving data using the HubSpot card on the right side of a contact record, the data is immediately integrated into HubSpot. For Plus plan users, the LinkedIn Lookup App also offers automatic data enrichment, which adds LinkedIn profile URLs for all new contacts in HubSpot. This data enrichment process occurs nightly, so there may be a slight delay before the data becomes visible in HubSpot.

06 Can I retroactively enrich contacts in HubSpot with LinkedIn data?

Yes, it is possible to retroactively enrich existing contacts in HubSpot with LinkedIn profile URLs for a fee of €250 for the first 10,000 contacts. Fill out the form on this page, select 'one-time enrichment,' and specify the number of contacts in your HubSpot environment. This service is only available as an add-on to a subscription to the full version of the LinkedIn Lookup App.
