In general in ProspectSafari if we store a website url we are interested in the domain (eg Acme.com) as this is a company website. Web scraping starts at this top level and drills down to other website pages.
With a Listing Website however we are interested in the precise url that holds the company or contact profile that interests us. Examples of Listing Websites include Linkedin, Facebook, Tripadvisor, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
The following domains are automatically recognised as Listing Websites:
- Google Maps
- Google+ (Google Chat)
You can paste in a url from any Listing Website in the Company URLs section of the Update Prospect popup when you click the prospect edit icon;
Click the + button in the company urls section to add a new listing website url;
ProspectSafari will recognise if it is a known listing website and add the label accordingly.
Similarly if you add a contact or click on a contact name to edit it, you can add contact urls in the Update Contact popup:
When stored in a prospect or contact profile the respective icons will be displayed in Prospect View. Clicking on these icons will open the link in the social window on the left.
You can add another Listing Website by clicking the + icon in the Listing Websites section in Settings:
The Listing Website icon will be added automatically.
Now you can upload a list of prospects or customers which includes a Listing Website url. Map this header to the ProspectSafari field Company Social. During the upload process, ProspectSafari will recognise the Listing Website url and the relevant icon will be displayed in the Prospect View.
By sizing the ProspectSafari window such that an appropriate space is available to the left of it you are thus able to view the company and contact details and CRM activities and timeline on the right and view the Listing Website profile on the left.
This will also work for most cloud-based CRM, ERP, Accounting, Customer Support etc systems where the company page url can be stored.
In some cases you will have the unique identifying number (UID) from the internal cloud-based system (used for ERP, CRM, Accounts, Support, etc). For example this UID might be a column in a customer list file you wish to upload. In this case, Prospect Safari can create the appropriate Dynamic URL when the relevant icon is clicked.
The Hubspot integration is an example of this type of dynamic url. The Hubspot UID is stored as a result of the API connection and the dynamic url is created when the Hubspot icon is clicked.
