How to send mass LinkedIn messages
Feel like learning more about the professional network LinkedIn? Stick with us, today we’re going to teach you how to send mass LinkedIn messages.
Unless you live in a cave, Linkedin is no longer in the news. It is THE social network for professionals by excellence. We won’t teach you (or maybe we will and in those cases, it makes us happy to be useful 😉 ), it serves to network, meet new professionals (let’s get that term right, we’re not on Tinder 🍑 !) and potentially serve you to acquire new leads for your business.
Besides, once you have your future targets in mind 🎯, you’re going to have to talk to them and that’s where a great tool comes in: the LinkedIn messaging. And to make your life easier, did you know that you can send mass messages very quickly on LinkedIn?
But first, let’s start at the beginning. What is mass messaging ✉️? How do you contact multiple people on LinkedIn?
One can contact multiple potential customers without the need for any software or program or any wizardry 🧙. With the basic LinkedIn messaging function, one can send a message (not personalized but we’ll come back to that later) to several people in your connections, groups or even colleagues.
On the other hand, with automation tools, you will be able to send messages without worrying about spam and especially personalize them by naming your different connections.
And that’s it! You’ve finally decided to go on LinkedIn regularly and start building your lead base. Congratulations ✨! One might ask: “exchanging by messaging on this network, what does it bring us concretely?”. Glad you asked the question because we’re going to answer it.
Like any messaging system we are used to use, LinkedIn’s messaging system is not really different or almost. This one will allow you to:
- To share with your connections / to the same members of your groups or your colleagues.
- Exchange on topics that speak to you or that interest you.
- To enrich your customer database.
The design aside, it could be likened to Facebook Messenger.
We’ll show you what it looks like right away.
To access this interface, you just have to click on the messaging tab when you are connected to your LinkedIn account. Here you can send and reveive several messages.
Once you’re there, in order to send a message to multiple people, all you have to do is click on the little pencil ✏️. This is what will allow you to open a “new conversation”.
And from there, you’re going to enter the names of your customers or prospects and you’re going to be able to text-message them and explain 📗 why you’re contacting them.
Using LinkedIn’s classic messaging feature has a real advantage when you only have a few customers. Indeed, you are going to be able to send messages on small volumes of prospects. We emphasize “small volume” because this function is limited to only 50 recipients.
We would like to specify that you can only send messages to your relations, your colleagues or to members who are in the same groups as you.
In order to send mass LinkedIn messages to users outside of your network, you can use InMail. However, this means having a premium account.
Even if sending emails remains an excellent way to prospect, you will have to add some steps before that. Mass emailing on LinkedIn can have a very positive effect on your business and your prospecting in general because you will be able to :
- Benefit from a considerable time saving ⏲️ (we know, prospecting is a tedious job and who wants to spend hours writing a message per person especially when you have a colossal database 🦛?).
- Send a single message to multiple people on LinkedIn.
- Get your message/advertisement/offer across.
And all of this with the goal :
- To increase your traffic on your site (you present your activity and BOUM 💣 small link of the families towards your site).
- To recruit a new person according to your targeting criteria to join your team.
- To get your product seen and potentially have a transactional action 🚀.
Well, you’ve seen that you can do a lot of things with the classic messaging version of LinkedIn, but did you know that there are some really nice tools to make your life easier? Thanks to these, you’ll know how to contact people en masse on LinkedIn. We want to tell you about them objectively 😈 to help you make the right choice.
Maybe you already knew this, but there are tools ⛏️ that make your life easier on social networks, especially LinkedIn.
These tools are called automation tools and we’ll quickly explain what they are. In the jargon,automation is the use of some technology 🔑 in order to reduce the volume of repetitive tasks you have to do.
You can use computer software to set up your instructions for it to run when you’re not around or simply when you’re doing something else. Some time ago, you were introduced to solutions resembling Waalaxy 💖. This topic is still relevant today. We leave you with the small comparison.

To do things right on LinkedIn, you need to know some rules. First of all when sending messages on LinkedIn, you have to choose your target well 🎯. Absolutely, you’re not going to send a message to someone who doesn’t fit your segmentation at all. Just imagine the scenario: you work in human resources and you offer your services to a butcher 🌭… Hard to project yourself no?
Well when you send prospecting messages, it’s the same thing, think about your interlocutor, the one who is listening to you (here he is reading you but you understood what I veud 👺), the one who is likely to buy your product or your services and meet a need. In fact the first rule 📏, is above all not to become a spammer.
This involves, as I told you earlier, finding the right contact in order to gain commercial efficiency 🤑 but not only. You also can’t continuously send a message to hundreds of thousands of people. Finally…
