Yes! you read correctly! If you’re reading this post it’s highly likely you have been hit with LinkedIn’s new invite restriction, “You’ve reached the weekly invitation limit” (Sound familiar?) if not, let me explain what it is and why you have got it.
The new 2021 LinkedIn invitation limit has hit home and affected many professionals that actively leverage LinkedIn tools such as Sales Navigator to generate interest in their products.
The full message reads as:
“Connections benefit you more when you know them personally, so we have weekly limits to encourage better networks.
“For people you don’t know, you can follow them to see their posts or send an InMail instead. If you’d still like to send an invitation, please try again next week.” and looks like below:
The limits in place are limiting the majority of LinkedIn users to around 100-120 invites per week, not great when you have plans to dominate on LinkedIn and be a network superstar!
The good news is you are not alone, at ThreeSixty we also leverage LinkedIn to broaden our user base and in response to the invite restriction we decided to create a solution called “Email Scout”. Email Scout allows ThreeSixty users to upload a list of email addresses (Professional and Free), we then resolve those email addresses to their LinkedIn profile by syncing your LinkedIn account via your cookie session, uploading the emails as contacts and sending an invite to every resolved profile.
The great thing about this is you can send up to 2500 connection requests in bulk in less than 5 minutes and carry on engaging with your audience and expanding your network.
