On LinkedIn, the professional social network, when you connect, you will try to make connections 💗. It’s normal, it’s the basic principle of social networks.
Your first question would probably be: “Okay, but how do we create the perfect message?”
It’s a lot of work beforehand because you have to know your target, reader, prospect. If you send a non-personalized message, you will certainly have less chance of getting what you want.
If you are not sure of your copywriting, we can advise you to send your invitation without a note at first and then send your first message when you have been accepted.

Waalaxy, what is it for?
Waalaxy allows you to automate the sending of connection requests
and messages on LinkedIn. It also allows you to visit and follow profiles automatically. The strength of Waalaxy is its sequence feature that allows you to automate action sequences (visit/tracking/connection request/message) between them.
This allows you to create real follow-up sequences
like you could do by email, but using LinkedIn profiles instead of email addresses, with a much higher open and response rate (x10 or so).
Waalaxy takes the form of a mini CRM.
from which you can perform all your actions. You organize your leads into campaigns, and you can use a large number of filters and a tagging system to better organize your prospecting.
Waalaxy offers an advanced prospecting feature: sequences. Sequences allow you to perform an action according to an event and certain conditions, all in a fully automated way.
This feature will allow you to automatically accept invitation requests while sending a welcome message on LinkedIn.
The first step is to create a campaign that you will call “Sequences Campaign” (for example).
Once the campaign is created, you go to the message tab and write the message you want to send to people who send you a connection request on LinkedIn. You can name your message “welcome message” (this title will only be visible to you).
Go to the “Campaign” tab and then choose your scenario! 😁
Here you can start on the sequence “Mercury”. This sequence will allow you to connect with your prospects and send them a message, with a follow-up if they haven’t responded.
