How to scrape social media profiles from websites at scale

Nowadays, increasing sales and acquiring new customers require more than just cold calling. 

Recent LinkedIn research has shown that more than 80% of decision-makers prefer not to respond to cold calls, but 76% are open to social media conversations.  

To foster strong customer relationships, marketers and sales professionals need to use social networking platforms in addition to cold calling and emailing. 

However, gathering social media profiles at scale is almost impossible to do manually, and your team probably has more important tasks in their schedule than doing data entry. 

With this short tutorial, you will learn how to effortlessly get social media profiles, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more from web pages on autopilot using Hexomatic.

Step 1: Create a new workflow

From your dashboard, create a new workflow by choosing the “blank” option. Then, select Data automation as a starting point.

Step 2: Add website URLs

 Next, add the website URLs you want to scrape social media profiles. 

Step 3: Add the social links scraper automation

Add the social links scraper automation, selecting data input as the source. Choose which social media platforms you want to detect and scrape. Then, select your proxy mode (Data center/ Residential/ Residential GEO).  This automation enables you to choose between Fast and Standard modes. Please, note that the Fast mode loads the pages faster but may have lower success rate. 

Step 4: Run or schedule your workflow

Now you can easily run your workflow. 

Step 5: View and save the results 

Once your workflow has finished running, you can then review your data in the Results Preview and export it in CSV or Google Sheets.

We recommend you to export the results to Google Sheets, so you can easily contact your potential customers.
