A Secret LinkedIn Hack That Will Save You Countless Hours

I’ve talked before about my favorite LinkedIn browser plugin called Dux-Soup.

And while I’m not here to rehash why I love the LinkedIn lead generation automation Dux-Soup provides, I am here to give you even MORE reasons to grab this plugin if you haven’t already:

In case you’re not familiar, Dux-Soup is an extension or add-on that works with the Google Chrome browser. In essence, Dux-Soup follows you around on LinkedIn like a virtual assistant, keeping track of every single profile you visit, even saving notes you jot down about each profile you look at.

Once you’re ready, you can export a .CSV file (which opens in Microsoft Excel or a similar program) of every LinkedIn profile you’ve visited in that given timeframe. The .CSV file includes the name of the person whose profile you visited, his or her job title, company name, location, email, phone number and more depending on a few different factors.

The reason I love Dux-Soup is that I might have spent an hour going in and visiting the profiles of people in my target audience, sending them invites to connect or messages about something, and now I can remember and track all my activity automatically with one simple export.

Even better, I can now take and save notes on each person I come across, which is critical for helping me remember what actions I took with each profile on a given day. For instance, did I send an invite? Reply to a message? Notice that the person is a big soccer fan?

Dux-Soup will save you hours of manual data entry when it comes to tracking all the leads you come across and interact with on LinkedIn. As of this posting, it costs $14.99 per month, and it also includes the ability to auto-visit profiles of LinkedIn users based on Google or LinkedIn searches. (I cover that specific feature and the debate that accompanies it in the video that goes with this post.)

Regardless of whether you want to use the automated features of Dux-Soup, trust me when I tell you this little LinkedIn browser plugin is worth it’s weight in gold when it comes to the time and energy it saves with tracking your leads.

If you want even more insight into the story of how (and why) Dux-Soup was created and what lies ahead, check out my recent LinkedIn Riches Podcast interview with Will vd Sanden, the creator of the plugin.
