We are releasing this special quick tip so that you are in-the-know about all of the updates in Sales Navigator. I know, it seems like LinkedIn has been putting a major focus on updating Sales Navigator lately! Their newest update is the ability to exclude geographic locations in a search. Our team is really excited about this update because it will allow you to filter out surrounding areas or cities that you do not want to be featured in your search results! Here’s how you do it:
First, start an advanced search in Sales Navigator and enter your criteria or go to one that you have already saved. Once you have your results, use the toolbar to the left of your screen to narrow your results further.
Specifically for the new geography update, you will want to click on the geography section. Once you have a line to type, enter the location that you wish to exclude. You will add it just like you would if you were adding a location you wanted to include.
To exclude this location, you will hover over the blue oval until you see the circle with a line through it. Click on that symbol to exclude the location.
Once you have clicked, the location should move to its own separate section, and the blue oval will now be red.
That’s it! Now you know how to exclude locations in LinkedIn Sales Navigator searches!
