LinkedIn has emerged in the online space as a networking platform, but lately, LinkedIn has become an essential platform to generate warm B2B leads. Business decision-makers should utilize LinkedIn to promote their products or services by networking with prospects via LinkedIn.
Since 2016 we are exposed to many LinkedIn browser-based automation tools such as Meet Leonard, Doux-Soup and cloud-based tools such as Expandi, Sky lead, etc. There were many complaints about these automation tools. When these tools are attached to LinkedIn, your accounts may get blocked or banned permanently. Also, the bots used in these automation tools do not function properly. Some of the common complaints we see are bots sending unnecessary messages like sending follow-up messages within an existing communication. Besides, these automation tools don’t pick up the custom variables such as the first or business name right all the time. Another common issue is LinkedIn account freezes and requires rebooting to continue operations.
We manage LinkedIn accounts manually to avoid all sorts of problems. We also research prospect profiles for connecting, gather them into a worksheet for client review and send out client approved scripted messages to prospects. All of our client accounts are running safely without any issues.
