LinkedIn – How to remove Non-Decision-Makers from your search

LinkedIn – How to remove Non-Decision-Makers from your search

As a regular user of LinkedIn Sales Navigator, many times I’ve been overwhelmed with the search results from LinkedIn. For instance, the other day I was looking for people who were responsible for marketing and revenue in my target demography; I was expecting to find CEO’s and CMO’s. However, LinkedIn also offered me Board Members, Chief Happiness Officers, and other “Chief”tains.

Not only did the wrong results clutter my search, they also distracted me. I found myself clicking to find out what the “Chief Happiness Officer” did – not exactly the right thing to do when working on a deadline!

Get to the Right people by removing the Wrong people

Part of my problem – and I’ve found this is true for a lot of people – I don’t want to lose out on anybody in my potential market. There are times when I have found the Co-Founders to be responsible for revenue, and at other times, there are rare job titles that I want to catch, like “Chief of Revenue”, or “Chief Sales Officer”.

So I find myself using the “Seniority” filter in the LinkedIn search very often. This way, I can specify “CXO” and get a list of the top executives. I don’t lose anybody – but I also get a lot of people I don’t want to talk to.

I DON’T want to speak to Board Members, …

Introducing the “Exclude” filter of LinkedIn

Lucky for us, LinkedIn has introduced the “Exclude” filter recently. It’s a great tool so that you can zoom out to a larger audience, and then hand-pick the sub-categories you don’t want and remove them from the search results. This is a Search Expert’s dream come true. YOU DON’T LOSE ANYBODY.

LinkedIn has support for the “NOT” boolean command, but that was previously restricted to the keyword filter alone. I’ve never been happy with the results of the “NOT” keyword. You can’t use the “NOT” keyword without supporting parenthesis and the other tools of the advanced boolean searcher. But that argument is for another day.

Here’s how to use the new “Exclude” filter of LinkedIn

Here’s how I used the Exclude filter to remove the “Board members” from my search. I want to remove “Board member”, “Board advisers”, “Board Advisory”, “Board Chair”, “Board whatever“,… so I just type in “Board” first.

Step 1: Type in the title you want to remove and hit Return on your keyboard

Once you press Enter on your keyboard, the title gets added with a blue color. You will get MORE Board members on your search result… but bear with me for a moment.

Hover your mouse cursor over the blue “pill” with the word “board” inside it. It will now see a “stop” icon. CLICK THE STOP ICON.

Step 2: Hover your mouse over the word and click the STOP icon

Magic! All the Board Members Gone! in a SNAP! 😉

Moving ahead, as I went through the various pages of search results, I added in titles that I didn’t want to see. Here’s the complete list, and here is the link to the search result, in case you want to copy it and save it as a search template

How to build telemarketing contact lists from Google Maps

How to build telemarketing contact lists from Google Maps

Telemarketing contact lists – Google Maps has become one of the most favorite tools for sales & marketing professionals these days.

Sales & marketing pros? Yes, you read that right.

Google Maps is no longer a tool that helps you to only navigate routes. It also helps you drive sales for your business. Google Maps helps you to build telemarketing contact lists based on the location and industry.

Location-Based Telemarketing Contact Lists

Let’s say you search for “Plumbers in California” in Google Maps.

Google Maps displays the list of plumbers in California. The company names are listed on the left hand side and their corresponding locations are displayed on the map.

Build Plumbers Contact List from Google Maps
Search for plumbers in California

The company names listed on the left hand side also includes their consumer rating, location and working hours details. The list runs to multiple pages. When you click on the desired company name, it displays more details about the company.

Information such as company address, plus code, company website URL, business phone numbers, etc. You can also see if the firm is open, closed or open 24 hours, etc. In addition, driving directions, nearby locations and options to share the location are also displayed.

So Google Maps helps you to find the list of plumbers in California.

The next step is to get those companies and their business contact information into an Excel sheet or your database.

How would you go about it?

You have to manually click each company name and copy-paste the company information into your database.

Your search result runs to multiple pages and you have to do it manually for all the companies in the search result if you want to build a telemarketing contact list which is very tiresome and time consuming. Also, manual data entry is prone for typos that will affect the quality of the list. This is where a Google Maps extractor software such as ListGrabber can be handy.

One-Click Solution to build Telemarketing Contact Lists

ListGrabber helps you to build telemarketing contact lists in a single click. All you have to do is just select the search results and click on the Grab button.

Where can I find Tradeshow lists?

Where can I find Tradeshow lists?

Tradeshows are perfect for finding new prospects because they attract audiences based on Interests and Intent. For instance if you go to a Blockchain trade show, you are bound to find prospects of the following types:

  • Companies looking for solutions – these are the ones at the trade-show because they are interested in the main subject at the tradeshow
  • Companies selling the solutions – these companies need tools and services to build their solutions, AND attendees to sell them to
  • Exhibitors – these are companies which have put up stalls – they need to attract more visitors to their booth
  • Companies providing Exhibitor services – they need to find new exhibitors at other conferences
  • The Conference Venue – they need to find more conference organizers, so that they can host more conferences
  • The Conference Organizers – they need to get more attendees and more exhibitors
  • Speakers & Trainers – these experts are usually looking for their next speaking or training opportunity at the tradeshow

All these people, together, that’s something you can’t find in a Hoovers or a DiscoverOrg list.

In this day and age of search engines, you’d think they’d have a search engine for all the tradeshows out there. Well, unfortunately not. Instead, there are dedicated websites and a few interesting ways to find trade-shows by using advanced Google commands (sometimes referred to as X-Ray’ing Google).

This post shows you different ways to find trade-shows so you can generate a list of leads from them.

MapYourShow (Google X-Ray)

MapYourShow provides web hosting services for conference providers. When conference providers feed in the details of their trade-show into MapYourShow, the website takes care of sending their trade-show details to Google. This means we can easily search Google for any trade-show which is listed on MayYourShow. Just for reference, CES – the largest consumer electronics show at Las Vegas – is hosted on MapYourShow for the past several years.

Try out this link . It gives you all trade-shows relating to blockchain, and specifically, it points you to the Exhibitors Directory.

The Google search has some advanced Google keywords in there. So if you are looking for some other topic other than blockchain, remove the ‘blockchain’ keyword replace it with your own keyword.


This website is very popular among early adopters of any technology. So if you are trying to break into a new market, or you want beta testers or early customers for your start-up then these events are your lead-generation go-to.

You can access the events page via this direct link . Consider registering on ProductHunt before trying out those conferences for lead-generation – you get a few promotional offers.


EventBrite is another company which has been in the business of providing software to conference providers. Like MayYourShow, they also showcase those conferences in an easy to use Search engine.

EventBrite events search:–san-francisco/business–events/?page=1 . This search gives you shows in SFO, but there are enough filters for you to try and drill down to the shows that you are interested in.

You can also X-Ray Google for events in EventBrite. . You will always find a different result set than searching on EventBrite website. That’s because Google will give you the events that are socially popular. While EventBrite will give you the events that are more recent or highly promoted inside the EventBrite platform. Ideally, you should look at both sources

Are you looking for non-technology conferences? Perhaps some classic industries? is a good source for non-tech conferences. . This website has trade-shows which have their own dedicated website, so you will find conferences here that are not on any of the previous platforms lists, like EventBrite and MapYourShow.

Plain Ol’ Google Search

If you are starting off your search, then you can consider starting with a very broad and wide search. I’ve found using the keywords “Exhibitor Directory” is great at cutting out all the noise from Google Searches and giving you only conferences (and not blogs to conferences)


Using the Twitter search is a great way to get to the conferences which are taking place right now, or those that will take place in a few days to come. The “recency” factor is what differentiates this search from all the other sources of conferences.

To search Twitter for the events you want, use the #conference and the #tradeshow HashTags.

Need the list of Decision Makers from these Exhibitors? Or the Attendee-Companies?

Very often, those who attend these trade-shows are not the ones with the budgets. If you are trying to sell your product or service, you can get a demo or an appointment with them, but you will find a champion for your product or a service. Not the decision maker who makes the buy decision.

You should give eGrabber Management-Finder a try. All you have to do is paste the list of companies which are attending this trade-show into the Management-Finder software. You get the list of attendee companies for free or for very low cost from the conference organizers. Import that list of companies into the Management-Finder and then tell it the decision maker Job Titles you want. The Management-Finder automatically researches for the decision makers at those companies, on the Internet, the company website and social media and gives you Name, Job Title, Verified Business Email address, phone and LinkedIn Id.

Download a Free Copy of Management Finder. Or ask us for an online demo.

Do you have any other websites from where you find conference leads? Put them in the comments below. I will review and add them.

How to get a list of recently funded startups

Recently funded startup companies
Do you want to reach companies that recently secured their Series A or Series B funding?

Curated the following list of places to get a list of companies which have got funding.

  • – this is our favorite. It’s got very good search filters and you can browse as many as you want for free. Try this search – it has the recently funded Series A and Series B companies. After the page loads, you should click on the “Joined” column header so that you get the recent-most additions first.
Series A & Series B companies list from angelist
  • CrunchBase – this has the most advanced search filtering we could find out there. For instance, besides the typical who got funded recently search, you can also look for who got a private round of funding with just 1 investor? The first 5 results in every search are free – but you will have to pay for more. So if you are researching 5 a day, this is a good source.

  • Job Postings – Another free source, where not many people are searching in. Think about it – if they got funding and they are hiring… then they are expanding and they need YOUR services or products! Try this indeed search. in this example, you get companies with a “Series A” funding who are hiring someone in sales. You can adjust the search text and find “Series B”, “Series C”… and you should adjust the keywords to look for the type of people who use your product or service.

  • Google Search – If it’s hit Google, then it’s probably a little late already – but it’s never too late to try. This Google Search does an X-Ray of a popular news and press-release site PR NewsWire and gives you the latest press releases of Series A funding in the last week. Feel free to adjust your keywords and find “Series B”, “Series C”. And if the list is too generic, you can add your industry keywords at the end of the search query – try adding blockchain for instance, and you get all the blockchain related companies who got a Series A funding.
Searching Series A funding companies in google
  • Twitter Search – If Google is too late, then try Twitter… you could get tweets from the founders earlier than you see the news in press releases and other sources. The downside – you see data from across the globe and you will have to filter it down to the geography you are interested in… unless you are targeting globally.

How to use LinkedIn to find new clients for my Recruiting Agency

How to use LinkedIn to find new clients for my Recruiting Agency

There’s a ton of advice telling you that you SHOULD use LinkedIn to get New clients for your Recruiting Agency. That’s great advice, but how do you actually do it?

This post shows you how to find the companies who are probably hurting right now, because their top talent just left them.

Let’s say I am placing DEVOPS talent. You could be placing any talent, that’s fine – this tip will work just as well. Here is our recipe:

  1. Track down the people who moved recently
  2. Find the company they moved from (who are probably hurting right now)
  3. Get to the Hiring Managers in those companies (using another nifty trick)
  4. Reach out…! (with a high-response template)

This tip works with a LinkedIn Sales Navigator account.

Step 1: Track down the people who moved recently

People who moved recently are easily visible on LinkedIn. We will use them as a clue to get to those companies who are hurting because of their absence.

Go to your LinkedIn Sales Navigator and do your normal search which brings up the type of candidates you usually place. In my case, I am searching for DEVOPS managers.

How to search in LinkedIn Sales Navigator

Once the search results come up, click the Tab on top of the results which says “Moved in the last 90 days”. You will get a smaller set of people, but these are gold.

How to find people who recently moved jobs in sales navigator

Step 2: Find the company they moved from

Open each profile and look for the company that they moved out from – these are the companies who are hurting right now. These are the companies who are going to hire your recruiting agency now.

Here is the old company that needs a new employee

Write those companies down in a spreadsheet, one below the other – this is important as we need this for the next step.

Step 3: Get to the Hiring Managers in those companies (using another nifty trick)

Once you have all those companies down in a spreadsheet, this step is going to show you how to get a single, big list of all their Hiring Managers in one go.

In your spreadsheet, type the word ” OR” in the column to the right of the companies (without the double-quotes). Remember to put a space before the word OR – this is important.

Type in ” OR” without the double-quotes

Copy the two columns – the companies and the ” OR” column – using Ctrl+C or the Copy command.

Copy to Clipboard

Go to your Sales Navigator, to a new Leads Search and in the “Company” section, you click Paste, or Ctrl+V. You will see all your companies appearing in there, separated with an OR keyword. Hit Return or Enter on your keyboard.

Paste into “Company” field

Now you have everybody from those companies appearing in your Sales Navigator. All you have to do next is type in the names of the Decision Makers, or Hiring Managers in the Title field of your Sales Navigator search.

Type target Hiring Manager Titles

Done! You have a list of all your Hiring Managers.. Now to reach out to them.

Step 4: Reach out…! (with a high-response template)

Now reach out to each of those Hiring Managers with this high-response template…

Reference: Adam, your Ex-DevOps Manager

How to get clients for my IT Services & Outsourcing business

How to get clients for my IT Services & Outsourcing business

Did you know there’s a PUBLIC and FREE way to Find People and Companies who WANT to hire your IT or Outsourcing services?

It’s right there, in public view. For Free. And almost no one is tapping that resource! This post shows you how to get it…

People are raising their hands in THIS public source…

Where do people go when they need New Expertise?

1. First they try their personal network

2. Second they try hiring.

If both fails, they are now ready for Outsourcing. They are now ready to hire YOU.

So how do you find such people who have tried and failed??

The Answer: Job Postings which are 90+ days old!

Look at old Job Postings to find companies who may be open to hiring Outsourcing / Business Services

In this post, I am going to show you an easy way of finding such people & companies who have tried to hire people and have probably failed.

I am going to show you how to get to job postings which are 90+ days old.

And then I’m going to show you how to find the decision makers in those companies. Using tools you already have.

At the end of this post, You will have a list of prospects who are looking for Your Expertise.

But wait, how do I see Job Postings which are 90+ days old??

If you are familiar with Job Postings websites, you will be wondering how to see job postings from over 90 days ago.

Most job posting websites show job postings from a few hours to go, to a few days ago.

They have time filters, but none of those time filters give you a way of seeing past 90 days.

This post is going to show you an advanced / power-user way of getting to those 90-day old job postings.

The Method

We are going to use a specific job posting portal for this =>

This method works best with

Step 1: Copy this link and paste it in your browser

This link shows you Indeed Job posts for companies hiring DEVOPS.

Or, click this link. All the results you see will be between 90 and 120 days old. You will be seeing companies who have a need for DEVOPS.

The job posting itself might say “30+ days old”, but if you know how to check the underlying HTML source code, you will be able to find the actual date of posting!

Here’s the breakdown of the link, for the expert reader…

The secret is in the &fromage=120&toage=90 part of the link. This part has a hidden command to to give back all job postings which are from 90 to 120 days old. If you like to increase that number upwards, you can do that too. Just change the 90 or the 120 part of the link.

The sr=directhire part of the link removes all recruiting agencies from the results, so that you only get the actual companies who have a need.

The q=DEVOPS part of the link is where you put in your specialty. So if you are not selling DEVOPS outsourcing, type in the keywords of your specialty in place of the word DEVOPS.

Step 2: Edit the link – put in your specialty

The link gives you results for those hiring DEVOPS. But you can edit that and put in your own specialty.

For example,"Appointment Setting"&fromage=120&toage=90&sr=directhire

Or, click this link. Just make sure you edit the link in the browser address bar – DO NOT edit the text in the web page.

Great, now I have Companies who can hire me, how do I get the decision makers in them?

I’m going to take you one step further.

Now that you have the list of companies, you need to separate those companies with a  ” OR ” and then paste the list of companies into a Sales Navigator or a Recruiter search.
