Getting around the weekly invite limitation on LinkedIn (3 hacks of 2023)

If you're reading this, it's likely that you sent a connection request on LinkedIn and received the message "You've reached the weekly invitation limit."

In order to prevent seeing this notice again, I'll teach you three ways to get around LinkedIn's weekly invitation restriction in this tutorial.

you've reached the weekly invitation limit.

The Weekly Invitation Limit On LinkedIn: Everything You Need To Know

3 key things to understand about the weekly invitation restriction on LinkedIn:

1. What is the LinkedIn weekly invitation limit?

2. When does the weekly limit on LinkedIn reset?

3. What should you do if you've over the weekly invitation limit?

What is LinkedIn's weekly invitation limit?

Around 100 invitations are allowed per week, according to a limit established by LinkedIn. The weekly limit for invitations to join LinkedIn was roughly 700 prior to this modification (100 per day). Clearly, this modification significantly affected how people prospect.

You can still utilize a few tricks, though, to get around or exceed this limit. On LinkedIn, you can still make weekly contacts with between 300 and 500 people.

When does the weekly limit on LinkedIn reset?

The weekly reset of LinkedIn invitation limitations takes place on Monday. Each week, you can send out about 100 invitations. For two to three days, you won't be able to send connection requests if you get the message "You've reached the weekly invitation limit on LinkedIn."

How should you respond now that your weekly invitation limit has been reached?

When you receive the notification "You've reached the weekly invitation limit":

1. Delay sending invitations for 2-3 days

2. Following two to three days, make a few manual connection requests

3. In case the manual connection request was successful, restart your automated program

Never restart your LinkedIn automation program without performing a manual test first!

How Can I Get Around LinkedIn's Weekly Invite Limit?

3 ways to get around the weekly invite restriction on LinkedIn:

1. Use email to seek a connection

2. Contact Open Accounts

3. Interact with the group's members and event participants

1. Use email to seek a connection

You may send as many invitations via email as you'd like because they are not counted toward the weekly limit.

Go to My Network > Add Personal Contacts and select More options to do that.

Adding personal contacts on LinkedIn

Once there, you have the option of sending invitations to every email contact or uploading email lists or CSV files.

The problem is that you must tick each item in order to send the invitation. This is a really difficult process.

Hopefully, programs like LaGrowthMachine and Waalaxy are successful in automating this procedure. When the email addresses of the LinkedIn profiles you offer them are stored in their database, these programs will issue email invitations rather than the usual connection requests.

2. Contact Open Accounts

Detecting and messaging open profiles is another method for getting around the LinkedIn invitation restriction. To send a DM, you don't have to be linked to an Open Profile. You can truly write an unlimited number of InMails if your profile is open. You don't need to send a connection request before you can communicate with them.

To utilize this function, you must have access to Inmails, which requires a Premium Linkedin Subscription (Linkedin Sales Navigator, Linkedin Recruiter or LinkedIn Premium). When you want to message an open profile, a different type of chat box opens. LinkedIn informs you that you can write a free InMail to that contact.

Contacting open account

Free InMails display precisely the same as normal InMails in your prospect's LinkedIn inbox. But how can you quickly determine which of your prospects have an open profile? If you export your leads from Sales Navigator for that, you can do it using Scrupp. You can determine if a prospect has an open profile or not by exporting your leads using Scrupp. After gathering this data, you can divide your prospecting operation into two parts:

  1. Open profile campaigns without the connection request step
  2. Closed profile campaigns with the connection request step

This allows you to store a large number of invitations for your outbound efforts.

3. Interact with the group's members and event participants

Group members and participants in events are exempt from the weekly connection limits on LinkedIn.

Members of the group on LinkedIn

If you are a participant of a LinkedIn group, you can communicate other group members directly without being connected. As a result, you can message 2nd and 3rd degree connections without first making a connection request. When you reach to the members list of the LinkedIn group, you can message them personally by selecting message. The same holds true for LinkedIn events. After signing up for the events, you will have access to a list of all participants and will be able to send personal messages to them. Just choose the Networking tab.

Then you will be able to message any event attendees.

The sole disadvantage of this method is that your messages will be routed to the Message Request area rather than the main Inbox part.
