Instantly save LinkedIn profiles straight to your Close database

LinkMatch enables you to add any LinkedIn profile as a Close lead with a single click.

With LinkMatch you can see which people/organizations from LinkedIn are already in Close, view/edit Close leads without leaving LinkedIn, save LinkedIn profiles as leads into Close, and it will even keep track of LinkedIn profile changes and offer you to update those changes into Close.

What you'll need

  • A Close account and your API key
  • A LinkMatch license for Close integration (they offer 30-day free trial)

How the integration works

Instead of manually search through LinkedIn profiles, creating a lead in Close one-by-one, and copy/pasting information such as names, phone numbers, websites, etc. - you can just click the new Add to Close button on LinkedIn profile to do all that in a single click.

Download and install a Chrome extension

Because LinkMatch works solely as a Chrome extension, you will need to install it first. Go to LinkMatch Chrome store link > Add to Chrome > Add extension.
