Connect Salesforce to LinkedIn’s Lead Gen Forms

Speed Up Your Responses to New Leads with New Automated Features

Tim Dusek—Chief Sales and Marketing Officer:
If somebody fills out a lead generation form for your LinkedIn Campaign, you know these are hot leads and should be followed up with immediately. Today, only a few people may get notified on a new form submission and must manually enter that information into Salesforce.

Spring ’18 introduces a connection to automate the creation of leads in Salesforce from these submissions. This will allow your inside sales rep to be quickly notified so they can reach out while your company is still on the leads’ mind. Any feature that helps reps get more connection excites us and we look forward to helping our clients boost connections with this feature.
