How to send a message to all your LinkedIn contacts?

show table of contents

On LinkedIn, we are mainly there to open up to new opportunities and professional relationships, discover new profiles, set up exchanges… But you also need to know how to chat with your future partners 🤖 or future customers. So that’s what we’re going to see today and you’ll know how to send a message to all your LinkedIn contacts.

We all want to be on LinkedIn, but more importantly we want to take action quickly. Sending personalized messages without it taking us 3 hours, that’s exactly what we’re going to cover today.

LinkedIn Messaging

LinkedIn messaging behaves exactly the same way as the messaging of any social network (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). It will allow you to communicate 👄 with other members of the network finally… With a few exceptions.

 

You will only be able to send messages to members who are already in your network.

These are called first-level relationships. But you can also send messages to people who are in the same group as you.

For example, if you are in the “Digital Marketing” group on LinkedIn, you can send a message to everyone in that group.

On the other hand when you want to send a message to someone who is neither part of your network, nor a group you are also part of, things will get a little bit more complicated (but, easy, we have solutions for everything and we will use the invitation note 😜).

 

How to send a message on LinkedIn?

You don’t need to have gone to Harvard 🤓 to know how to send a message to your contacts on LinkedIn. We’ll explain it to you right now. Very simple, you first log in to LinkedIn and then click on the message icon on the top right of your homepage.

envoyer-un-message-a-tous-ses-contacts-linkedin

 

There, go to the page containing all your old messages if you have sent any before. You can write a new message by clicking on the icon provided.

You will be asked for the person’s name. You can then send the message you want. What if you want to send a message to several people?

The process is the same: you just have to type several names. However, you won’t have the opportunity to personalize your message, which means you won’t be able to name a person or quote the company they work for 😭.

But don’t worry, we have the solution – Waalaxy.

  • Select the list of profiles you are going to use (this only works if you have done an import before. If it’s your first time, you’ll need to do a search on LinkedIn first, then import your leads).
  • You can check ✅ the leads you’re going to use (be aware that you can also check “Name”, which by default will check all the names in the list).
  • Click on “start a campaign”.

  • If you are already logged in with your various leads, you can choose the “message” campaign. (Otherwise, if you are not logged in, choose “Invitation” and leave a note).
  • Name your campaign.
  • Write your message 📩 inserting the variables “name” and “first name” or “company” if you need it”.
  • Launch your campaign.

It’s as simple as that. You’re going to write a message but you’re going to be able to send it to multiple people and that’s pretty cool 😻.

 

LinkedIn Network

If you don’t know what the LinkedIn network is, we’ll explain it to you right now. To put things in context, LinkedIn is the leading professional social network. This means that it will be useful to you for:

  • Find a job.
  • Expand your professional network.
  • Find your next business opportunity.
  • Implement personal branding (hence the importance of having a polished profile).
  • Advertise your offer.

The best thing about this social network is that it will allow you to gain visibility 👀 with a community of professionals. If you gain this visibility, they will start to be more and more interested in you, and therefore trust you.

Because on LinkedIn, it’s all about trust. If you want to sell, your audience has to trust you. And trust starts with having an extremely polished profile. We know, we often talk about the profile( profilepicture, description, summary, experience …), how to set up your profile, to do it carefully etc…

Your profile or LinkedIn page is your professional showcase (we advise you not to create a company page, you will lose visibility).

Taking care of your profile is essential if you start an acquisition strategy on LinkedIn. When to send a message on LinkedIn?

We’ve seen what the LinkedIn network is, how it works as well as its benefits. But what is the right time to send a message?

We have a peak audience on this network between 8am and 10am and then from 6pm to 8pm. If you want your message to be read quickly, you can send them from 7:30/8h.

What you also have to understand is that you are not trying to reach your audience with content, you are not obliged to confine yourself to send a message at a particular time.

On the other hand, if you want to start a content strategy on LinkedIn, it’s best to choose your times well so that your posts get the most visibility so that it reaches the right people.

 

FAQ of the article : Send a message to all your LinkedIn contacts

Send a professional message on LinkedIn

You can send a message to your friends on LinkedIn, no one says you can’t. But if you need to contact a recruiter, for example, it’s best to make your message as professional as possible. So, how do you do it?

We try to avoid familiarities such as: “Hey buddy, how’s it going? You can imagine that the message won’t work… EXCEPT if the person you’re talking to has a sense of humor and so do you (but we avoid it a bit anyway). If possible, if you’re trying to apply for a job offer, find out how the company does things and why not, how the recruiter does things.

Once you have this valuable information with you, use it wisely. Remember, to write a professional message, you must:

  • Be polite (yes, politeness helps?).
  • As far as possible, your profile should be completed from A to Z.
  • That you know your target.

 

Example of a professional message

So you can send a message like this to a recruiter (we point out that you will not be able to send a message if you are not connected ❤️ both, but you can do it in an invitation note):

Hello {firstname}, I’d like to have a conversation about the post you posted on {platform} if it is still open. I invite you to join my network and to show you all the motivation and my ambitions within your company.

 

Send a mass message to all your contacts from LinkedIn

As explained in this article, you can use the basic LinkedIn interface to send your messages. You go directly to messages, then type in the names of the different people you want to send a little message to.

The only small drawback 😿 is that you won’t be able to customize it with the first and last name of each member.

The best thing to do is to use an automation tool such as Waalaxy which will also save you time and allow you to set up sequences according to your position in your marketing funnel.
