What is a LinkedIn Script?
The script feature allows you to create a sequence of actions similar to transactional email-marketing (workflow), but on LinkedIn: you get much higher open and conversions rates.
Use it for prospecting, automatic follow-ups, content distribution… In short, for all the uses of mailing, but on LinkedIn.
Automation tool for your LinkedIn Scripts
Let’s go into more detail. The scenario mode (or script) includes all the basic features of our tool, i.e. :
- Automatic LinkedIn Invitations,
- Finding clients on LinkedIn,
- Grow your network,
- Send automatic messages,
- Visit the profile of your chosen prospects.
You can decide which actions will be implemented, when and how. This works in the form of rules. For example, you can tell our tool: if my prospect accepts my invitation request, then send a message on D+2, etc. This allows you to automate your LinkedIn prospecting.

LinkedIn sales scripts : example
If you’re a salesperson for example, one of the key steps 🗝️ of the sales process is communication. So you have to be smart and use technique to successfully connect with your prospect.
If you browse our campaigns, we offer 4 sequences dedicated to sales:
- Test a sales message. 💭
- Find the person in charge. 👀
- Open a discussion that can lead to a sale. 😶🌫️
- Book a call-to demo. 📲
For example, if we take campaign number 3, the objective is to open a discussion on a topic by taking the prospect’s need. Its advantage? A qualitative approach that gives good response rates and allows infinite personalization of the contact. 🌌
Be careful, however, to have a good list of prospects per position that is well qualified. Don’t know how to do it? We explain it all in this article. ⬅️
What script to automate LinkedIn messages ?
Yes yes, we also have a LinkedIn contact script to automate your messaging request. To do this, go to your web browser and then to Waalaxy. Once you are in the “Campaign” section, we advise you to use the script which is called “Message Request” level 1, which means it is easy to set up, it is a beginner level.
To save time, we used the search bar and typed the following keyword “message request”.
With this scenario, you will be able to send a message request to members of your groups and events, without having to send an invitation! Of course, this is the simplest scenario. As you can see on the image below, there are other scripts available, such as :
- Visit a profile ➕ send a message request.
- Send a message request ➕ send a message.
- Send a message request ➕ 3 messages with a time limit for each.
Setting up the scenario messages
It is important to take the time to personalize the messages in your script. The more personalized it is, the more special your prospect will feel… After all, we’d rather talk to a human than a robot, right? 🤔
Where can I analyze my LinkedIn script?
Your campaign is up and running, that’s a good point but, I dare imagine you’d like to know the statistics? No problem, to do so, go back to your homepage of our Chrome extension, then to ‘Campaigns’.
Now click on the campaign of your choice, and you will then see a dashboard displayed with the number of invitations, message requests, messages, visits and follows sent. You also have two performance indicators displayed, namely the acceptance rate and the response rate.
