Why have I reached the weekly invitation limit on LinkedIn?
LinkedIn wants to improve the quality of relationships built on the social network. That’s why they recently made an update to limit weekly invitation sends.
After having closely studied the evolution of this update and its propagation within our user base, we are now able to say that this update:
- Applies to all users,
- Does not depend on the number of pending requests sent,
- Does not depend on your performance (acceptance rate, responses to messages),
- Does not depend on the size of your network,
- Applies to both standard and premium users as well as Sales Navigator. No LinkedIn subscription will allow you to send more invitations,
- Reduces the number of connection requests that users can send to around 100 per week.
How to lift the weekly invitation limit?
Once you get this message, unfortunately there is nothing you can do immediately. You have to wait until the following week to send new invitations.
If you’re using an automation tool like Dux-Soup, or another tool on the market, you’ll need to pause your campaigns while this restriction is lifted. 👌🏻
On the other hand, tools like Waalaxy allow you to exceed the weekly quota for sending a connection.
Indeed, the tool automatically retrieves the email of the people with whom you want to connect and therefore makes it possible to send the request via the email (which is not subject to weekly quotas) and not via the classic connection request.
So you can send up to 100 connection requests per day without any worries, even if you are restricted by LinkedIn on sending manual requests, not bad isn’t it? 😉
How does Waalaxy handle when you’ve reached your weekly invite limit?
Here’s how it works:
Invitation requests are sent to your prospects using your regular LinkedIn invitations. When you reach that limit, we automatically use our bypass system, which replicates the old “invitation with email” feature on LinkedIn and allow you to continue sending invitations!
You can also bypass the weekly invitation request limitation by sending message requests to people from the same group or event. Here’s a video that shows you how it works 😊
