But I will go through by choosing “Persana Starter List” to show you what the Persana platform can do for you.

As you can see, I have the names of people and their linkedin profiles and company websites.

Click on "Enrich Data" in the top right corner.


Let's say you want to find the work emails of the leads in your list.


Click on "Find Work Email".

You can either use your leads' LinkedIn URL or their full name and company name.

For more accurate results, you can also use name and company name to find work email.

Click on “Increase match rate”.

Select the “LinkedIn URL, Full Name, and Company Website” of your leads.

Click on “save and run for all”.

Here are the results.

Now you have your lead’s work email and email status.

This is where Persana Agent comes into play.

You can use it to find any information about the company.

- What the company's revenue is.

- If this company is SaaS or not.

- If this company is B2B or B2C.

The rest is up to your creativity to ask some questions.


Let’s go back to learn if this company is B2B or B2C.

Click on “Use this preset”.

The prompt you choose is automatically copied to the question section.
