What is your goto Linkedin automation tool?

Hi Y'all,


Doing some research in LinkedIn Automation tooling. What is your favourite? We already have sales automation software but it lacks LinkedIn Functionality. Preferably this would be a stand-alone tool and not another sales automation tool that has LinkedIn capabilities.

Thanks for the suggestion. I checked them out yesterday. Sure looks interesting and they offer a 14-day free trial that should allow us to test how effective it is. What did you like about it?ย

It was simple to use for someone like myself who's never used an automation tool. Also the 14 day free trial was a nice hook to get me to test it out. Problem is they don't send out all the LinkedIn messages on the same day so make sure you get set up quickly so you can get the most out of the trial

I used Linkedhelper for a while, but LinkedIn almost banned my account because of it so I stopped. LinkedIn has been cracking down on this so I wouldn't recommend it

Oh shit, I was worried something like that might happen. It seems like MeetAlfred has some pretty aggressive limits. 25 invites per day and 25 messages per day. I assumed that was to avoid getting banned.ย 

Honestly, I have been trying to get MeetAlfred to work, but it just gives random error messages all the time or does not work at all. I contacted their support many times, but I am a little over trying to fix their tool. At some point, it's just quicker to do it by hand, especially if that tool might also get you banned from Linkedin.ย

Yeah it's tough. At this point it's definitely better to skip the automation

I love email cadences, but I never use tools for LinkedIn. If I'm going to send LinkedIn messages I always take the time to personalize.

Agreed, my preference would be to have parts personalized but other parts automated. I use email sequences in the same way.ย

OctopusCRM (octopuscrm.io) is by far the best one I know. Tried both LinkedIn helper in the past, as well as MeetAlfred, both weren't too good.ย 

However, since a few months ago LinkedIn has severely reduced the invite limits, so now I'm seeing myself get a "you're out of invitations for now" message every 50 invites weekly.

I have tried a few - but they just don't sit well with me. With the new limits in place of 100 connection requests a week, you should do a manual cadence imho.ย ย
