Sales Navigator is fantastic at sourcing top-quality leads for your business. However, the platform does have a few drawbacks. For example, these leads stay on the platform unless you manually copy and paste their details.
Luckily, there is a simpler solution, so today, we’ll show you how to export leads from Sales Navigator!
How to Export Sales Navigator Leads with Findymail
Findymail allows you to export the leads you find on Sales Navigator to CSV files. From there, you can use them with other tools.
Step 1: Create a Findymail Account
The first step is to create a Findymail account. Once you log in, click on Scrape Sales Navigator in the sidebar.
On the screen that opens, you’ll see a short guide on how to export leads from Sales Navigator.
Step 2: Install the Findymail Chrome Extension
The first step in the guide is to install the Findymail Chrome extension. Here, you have two options.
The first is to go to the Chrome Web Store, type Findymail in the search box, and click on Findymail in the list of results.
The other, easier option is to simply click on the link in the guide that will take you to the Findymail Chrome extension’s page.
Either way, on the Web Store page that opens, you can then add the Findymail Chrome extension by clicking Add to Chrome. A dialog box will appear where you can just click OK.
Once you’ve added the extension to Chrome, it will appear in your taskbar.
If it doesn’t, you can click the puzzle symbol and then on the pin to add it to the taskbar.
Step 3: Activate the Findymail Chrome Extension
When you’ve added the Findymail extension to your Chrome browser, the next step is to activate it.
To do this, you’ll head back to the Findymail website and click on API in the sidebar.
(You can also go to the guide we mentioned earlier and click on the link in step 2 of the guide.)
You’ll land on the API screen, where you’ll be able to create an API token for the Chrome Extension. Here, you’ll give your token a name, in this case, Chrome extension, and then click on CREATE.
Once you’ve clicked on CREATE, a dialog box will open and display the API token to activate the extension.
To activate the extension, you’ll copy this API token and paste it into the dialog box that opens the first time when you open the extension.
With the API token pasted in the box, you can click on Sign in. A confirmation box will then appear to confirm that you’ve been logged into the extension.
At this stage, it’s important to remember that if you don’t intend to activate the extension right away, you should save the API key in a text file or note. Once you close the window, it won’t be shown again.
How to Export Leads From Sales Navigator
Once you’ve created a Findymail account and installed and logged into the Findymail Chrome extension, you’re ready to start exporting leads from Sales Navigator.
However, before you continue, you should ensure that you have Email Finder credits available. You can always get more by subscribing to one of Findymail’s plans. You can see how many credits you have in the top-right corner of your Findymail dashboard.
You’ll only pay for verified email addresses because Findymail verifies and ensures every lead’s email address works and doesn’t result in a bounce.
Head over to Sales Navigator.
On the home page, search for the leads you would like.
In this example, we’ll search for Chief Executive Officer. We’ll also filter the results to include only CEOs of companies in North America with less than 50 employees in the retail industry.
(If you’re a Sales Navigator power user, you can use more advanced features like the Boolean search.)
If we look at the results like they would usually appear, you’ll see a list of CEOs, from which you can then select the leads to save to your list. You can also check the Select all box to save all of them.
However, with Findymail activated, you’ll notice that there’s now an Export to CSV button.
When you click on this button, a dialog box will open. Here, you can choose how many leads you’d like to export (to a maximum of 2,500).
You can also select the list you want to add the leads to.
In addition, you can speed up the process by selecting Fast mode. Generally, the scraping process is slow in order to avoid getting flagged by LinkedIn for using abusive automation. The fast mode might speed up this process a bit, but you’ll get fewer email addresses.
Once you’ve selected your preferences, you can click on Export CSV. When the process is completed, you’ll be able to save your CSV file on your computer.

That same process is also applicable to your saved lead lists on Sales Navigator! Follow the above tutorial to install Findymail and the "export to csv" will also appear in your saved lists.
