What is the LinkedIn Prospect Tracker?

The LinkedIn Prospect Tracker allows you to send LinkedIn messages with tracked links. This means that for prospects who click through to your website;

  • You’ll see every action they take in real time
  • You’ll know every time they return to your site in the future

In short, you get the power of our Email Marketing, Outlook, and Gmail integrations… but for your LinkedIn outreach!
