If you’re reading this, you’ve probably seen the “you’ve reached the weekly invitation limit” message from LinkedIn after making a connection request.
Amid generating prospects and developing your network, you may run out of LinkedIn connection requests and seem to be lost. Believe us, this is a problem that all marketers and professionals attempting to extend their network encounter, and here are a few effective solutions.
What is the LinkedIn Weekly Invitation Limit?
The weekly invitation restriction enforced by LinkedIn is around 100 invitations per week.
Before this modification, the weekly invite limit on LinkedIn was roughly 700 invitations each week (100 per day).
LinkedIn Implements New Weekly Invitation Limit to Combat Spammers
Even LinkedIn’s website states, under Types of Restrictions for Sending Invitations,:
“We have invitation limits in place to protect our overall member experience and to ensure that our members only receive relevant requests. Your LinkedIn account may be temporarily restricted from sending invitations to people for the following reasons:
1. You’ve sent many invitations within a short amount of time.
2. Many of your invitations have been ignored, left pending, or marked as spam by the recipients.”
How to Avoid the LinkedIn Invites Limitation and What to Do Next?
Users may simply decrease their outreach volume to prevent these momentary interruptions. LinkedIn tracks how much and how quickly you use your account. Although Linked Helper is safe, if they identify excessive activity, they may limit your account, even if you did it on purpose. They may, for example, limit your LinkedIn account’s invite capabilities. In this scenario, we advise spreading the enticing activity over the day using Advanced restrictions.
You might also these:
- Wait a few hours before attempting again.
- If you got multiple limits each day – Try again in a few days. Please keep in mind that most limitations will be automatically lifted after a few days.
- If you have a large number of outstanding invitations, retract all except the most recent 500 and try again.
What Are the LinkedIn Alternatives for Lead Generation?
Everyone is wondering how to create leads on LinkedIn now that the invitation limit has been decreased to 100 per week.
Unfortunately, you will have to abandon your twentieth-century sales strategies. On LinkedIn, “cold emailing” is no longer an option. You must go from a “transactional” to a “relational” technique. In summary, you will need to commit time in order to build a connection.
Forget about purchasing likes and pods. You may get more views in the short run, but your reach will be contaminated by “false” profiles who liked you in the medium term. Rather, invest in quality. Would you rather send 1000 automated invites and get one lead, or have 10 qualitative discussions and get two leads?
In conclusion, LinkedIn compels you to transition from an outbound marketing approach (you go to others) to an inbound marketing strategy (prospects come to you). You will need to expand your reach by increasing the number of people that follow you. And to do so, you’ll need to develop ENGAGING CONTENT.
