If you’re interested in a specific company, you can view leads for saved brands by viewing their Account Details page. If you haven’t saved a company as an account, you can still search for the company and view lead recommendations. These recommendations will be displayed at the top of the Account Details page.
You can also view lead recommendations on individual profiles. These recommendations are displayed at the top of the lead’s profile.
Lead recommendations from LinkedIn are more targeted, so you can focus on the right people at the right time.
