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 200 per week.
How to lift the weekly invitation limit?
Once you have received this message, unfortunately there is nothing you can do immediately. You’ll have to wait until the following week to send out new invitations on LinkedIn.
