Millions of people go onto LinkedIn every day to make new connections. It is the single largest platform for professionals, marketers, and entrepreneurs who are seeking to expand their network. This is mainly done by sending connection requests and by sending messages to prospects.
For those who are actively seeking new connections and messaging leads, you might be curious as to how many messages LinkedIn allows you to send out per day. The truth is that LinkedIn does not actually put a limit on the number of messages its users can send on a daily basis.
The important thing to remember is that just because you can, does not mean you should. There are rules you need to follow in order to keep your LinkedIn account safe. A good rule of thumb is to try and stay within a certain limit, even though there are no hard rules in place.
It is best practice to not make more than 250 actions per day on LinkedIn. LinkedIn has a monitoring system in place that works very well, and it is designed to ensure that users are not “overusing” the platform. This means users should generally try to stay under 250 actions per day, or else LinkedIn might detect some unusual activity.
Excessive activity might lead to your account getting flagged by LinkedIn’s monitoring system and eventually being blocked.
The 250 actions by and large include sending connection requests and sending messages. For example, if you have already sent out 100 messages today, you can still send either 150 connection requests, or 150 more messages. It is also worth noting that you can safely view up to 500 profiles a day.
Messaging on LinkedIn should be about quality and not quantity. There are many automation tools out there that can help you speed up repetitive tasks and complete mundane actions such as sending out connection requests. But even with these tools, you need to make sure you are using them properly so that LinkedIn does not categorize you as a spammer.
It’s not about sending as many messages as you can, but reaching the right people using the right message. Kennected, for example, is an automation tool that lets you send personalized messages automatically so that they don’t come across as spam. This in turn makes recipients more likely to respond to them.
What sets Kennected apart from other LinkedIn automation tools is its use of laser-accurate data to find your ideal clients. By putting your message in front of the right audience, Kennected helps you expand your network without spamming LinkedIn.
LinkedIn messaging is a back and forth way of communicating, similar to other social media messaging apps. It is a great tool that can be used to find and create new connections. But at the core of social marketing is building real relationships. It is not just about reaching as many people as you can. Focus on having real conversations with the connections you already have.
