Retrieval Augmented Generation For LinkedIn: Unlocking the Power of NLP and Generative AI
LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional networking platform, has over 740 million members in more than 200 countries and territories, making it a treasure trove of valuable data. As a researcher, marketer, or organization, analyzing this data can provide valuable insights and opportunities for growth. However, with such a vast amount of data, it can be overwhelming and time-consuming to manually analyze and extract meaningful information. This is where retrieval augmented generation (RAG) comes in – a powerful combination of natural language processing (NLP) and generative AI that can revolutionize the way we analyze and utilize LinkedIn data.
What is LinkedIn and Why is it Valuable for Researchers, Marketers, and Organizations?
LinkedIn is a social media platform specifically designed for professional networking and career development. It allows individuals to create a profile, connect with other professionals, join groups, and share content related to their industry or interests. With its robust features and wide reach, LinkedIn has become an essential tool for job seekers, recruiters, and businesses looking to build their professional network and brand.
For researchers, LinkedIn provides a wealth of data on career trajectories, job trends, and industry insights. Marketers can leverage LinkedIn to reach a highly targeted audience and promote their brand and products. Organizations can use LinkedIn to recruit top talent, network with industry leaders, and showcase their company culture. In short, LinkedIn is a goldmine of valuable information that can benefit researchers, marketers, and organizations in various ways.
Introducing Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG)
Retrieval augmented generation (RAG) is a state-of-the-art technology that combines the power of NLP and generative AI to improve the efficiency and accuracy of data analysis. It uses a pre-trained language model, such as OpenAI’s GPT-3, to generate text based on a given prompt or query. This generated text is then matched against a large dataset, such as LinkedIn profiles, to find the most relevant and informative results. RAG essentially augments the traditional retrieval process with a generative component, allowing for more comprehensive and nuanced analysis.
The Benefits of Using RAG for LinkedIn Analysis
Now that we understand what RAG is, let’s explore how it can benefit researchers, marketers, and organizations when analyzing LinkedIn data.
1. Efficient and Accurate Data Extraction
One of the main challenges of manually analyzing LinkedIn data is the vast amount of information available. It can be time-consuming and error-prone to sift through profiles and extract relevant data. RAG automates this process, significantly reducing the time and effort required. It also improves accuracy by generating text based on the query, ensuring that no relevant information is missed.
2. Enhanced Data Visualization
RAG can generate not only text but also visualizations, such as charts and graphs, based on the data it extracts from LinkedIn. This provides a more comprehensive and visually appealing representation of the data, making it easier to identify trends and patterns.
3. Personalized and Targeted Insights
RAG can be customized to generate personalized insights based on specific queries or prompts. For example, a researcher can ask for career trajectory data for professionals in a particular industry, while a marketer can request audience demographics for a specific job title or skill. This level of personalization and targeting can provide valuable insights that are tailored to the user’s needs.
4. Competitive Advantage
In today’s fast-paced and competitive business landscape, having access to the latest data and insights can give organizations a significant advantage. By using RAG for LinkedIn analysis, businesses can stay ahead of industry trends and make informed decisions that can drive growth and success.

To sign up for Speak and start using Speak Magic Prompts with retrieval augmented generation, just visit the Speak app register page here.
Step 2: Upload Your LinkedIn
We typically recommend MP4s for video or MP3s for audio.
However, we accept a range of audio, video and text file types.
You can upload your file for transcription in several ways using Speak:
Accepted Audio File Types
Accepted Video File Types
Accepted Text File Types
- Word Doc
You can also upload CSVs of text files or audio and video files. You can learn more about CSV uploads and download Speak-compatible CSVs here.
With the CSVs, you can upload anything from dozens of YouTube videos to thousands of LinkedIn files.
Publicly Available URLs
You can also upload media to Speak through a publicly available URL.
As long as the file type extension is available at the end of the URL you will have no problem importing your recording for automatic transcription and analysis.
Speak is compatible with YouTube videos. All you have to do is copy the URL of the YouTube video (for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKfcLcHeivc).
Speak will automatically find the file, calculate the length, and import the video.
If using YouTube videos, please make sure you use the full link and not the shortened YouTube snippet. Additionally, make sure you remove the channel name from the URL.
This library of integrations continues to grow! Have a request? Feel encouraged to send us a message.
Step 3: Calculate and Pay the Total Automatically
Once you have your file(s) ready and load it into Speak, it will automatically calculate the total cost (you get 30 minutes of audio and video free in the 14-day trial – take advantage of it!).
If you are uploading text data into Speak, you do not currently have to pay any cost. Only the Speak Magic Prompts analysis would create a fee which will be detailed below.
Once you go over your 30 minutes or need to use Speak Magic Prompts, you can pay by subscribing to a personalized plan using our real-time calculator.
Step 4: Wait for Speak to Analyze Your LinkedIn
If you are uploading audio and video, our automated transcription software will prepare your transcript quickly. Once completed, you will get an email notification that your transcript is complete.
That email will contain a link back to the file so you can access the interactive media player with the transcript, analysis, and export formats ready for you.
If you are importing CSVs or uploading text files Speak will generally analyze the information much more quickly.
Speak will automatically embed your data in a well-architected vector database which allows you to use retrieval augmented generation for LinkedIn.
Step 5: Visit Your File Or Folder
Speak is capable of analyzing both individual files and entire folders of data.
When you are viewing any individual file in Speak, all you have to do is click on the “Prompts” button.
If you want to analyze many files, all you have to do is add the files you want to analyze into a folder within Speak.
You can do that by adding new files into Speak or you can organize your current files into your desired folder with the software’s easy editing functionality.
Step 6: Select Speak Magic Prompts To Analyze Your LinkedIn
What Are Magic Prompts?
Speak Magic Prompts leverage innovation in artificial intelligence models often referred to as “generative AI”.
These models have analyzed huge amounts of data from across the internet to gain an understanding of language.
With that understanding, these “large language models” are capable of performing mind-bending tasks!
With Speak Magic Prompts, you can now perform those tasks on the audio, video and text data in your Speak account.
Retrieval augmented generation is what makes these Magic Prompts work so well.
Step 7: Select or Create Your Assistant Type
To help you get better results from Speak Magic Prompts, Speak has introduced “Assistant Type”.
These assistant types pre-set and provide context to the prompt engine for more concise, meaningful outputs based on your needs.
To begin, we have included:
Choose the most relevant assistant type from the dropdown.
You can also create your own custom Assistant Template Type.
If you visit the new page Account Preferences, you can see there is now an area where you can create your own custom Assistant.
This allows you to set the context of the engine for higher quality and more consistent outputs.
For example, you could say:
“We are [COMPANY NAME]. We are analyzing [DATA] to understand how to improve [GOAL]. We want all responses to be concise and in table format.”.
This becomes a reusable template in any of your manual or automated Magic Prompts.
You can create multiple templates for different use cases.
As an example, the analysis you run on a focus group may be different than a one-on-one interview.
Step 8: Create Or Select Your Desired Prompt
Here are some examples prompts that you can apply to any file right now:
- Create a SWOT Analysis
- Give me the top action items
- Create a bullet point list summary
- Tell me the key issues that were left unresolved
- Tell me what questions were asked
A modal will pop up so you can use the suggested prompts we shared above to instantly and magically get your answers.
If you have your own prompts you want to create, select “Custom Prompt” from the dropdown and another text box will open where you can ask anything you want of your data!
Step 9: Review & Share Responses
Speak will generate a concise response for you in a text box below the prompt selection dropdown. With Chat enabled, you can also continue to query that data to reveal more insights and reformat the information to your needs.
In this example, we ask to analyze all the LinkedIn in the folder at once for the top product dissatisfiers.
You can easily copy that response for your presentations, content, emails, team members and more!
