Prospecting with Waalaxy: About ProspectIn? Does the tool replace ProspectIn?

We will continue to keep ProspectIn running smoothly but we will not add new features. The future of prospecting is on Waalaxy 😉.

Why Waalaxy? Waalaxy is version 2.0 of ProspectIn. We’ve gathered all the feedback we’ve gathered over a year into the new Waalaxy and turned it into a multi-channel tool.

If you want to be part of the future and expand the way you contact your prospects through different channels, you should migrate to the new Waalaxy.

I only want to prospect on LinkedIn

Who can do more can do less, Waalaxy allows you to do only LinkedIn prospecting if you want to, however be aware that you will get much better results with multi-channel prospecting. 🤓

You are probably wondering why you should use LinkedIn for your prospecting? Well, LinkedIn has millions of members who update their data regularly. A free database that updates itself automatically? Absolutely, and that’s LinkedIn.

You can do it:

  • Increase your visibility (of a product).
  • Find new prospects.
  • Show your level of expertise in a field.
  • Find a job.
  • Make impactful connections in the professional sphere.

If you want to prospect on LinkedIn, go for it.

Questions about how Waalaxy works

We will try to answer the questions that come up most often so that you can have all the answers (or almost) to the questions that are on your mind. Go, go, go.

How do you get around LinkedIn’s weekly limit?

As you may have noticed, LinkedIn recently changed their policy regarding weekly connection request quotas. You are now limited to 100 submissions per week. 😬

The good news? We’ve just implemented a solution on Waalaxy to get around LinkedIn’s weekly limit.

Find out more 🔥

We automatically get the prospect’s email before sending the connection request. This method of sending a connection request is not counted in the weekly quotas.

What if we can’t find the email? 😅 Don’t worry, we have another method, but for that, you will have to send a connection request without a note.

If you’re skeptical, be sure to read this article with our stats that show you can have a better acceptance rate without adding a note to your login requests 😉 If you want to keep the note, you’ll have to wait a week before you can send a login request again.

I paid for a ProspectIn license, it is possible to transfer it to Waalaxy? From when?

Absolutely, it is possible to transfer your ProspectIn license to an equivalent Waalaxy license.

To do so, you need to start exporting your campaigns as .CSV files to import them into Waalaxy. And to switch your subscription, you can do it from Waalaxy Settings => Upgrade => Transfer my subscription.

What is the benefit of having purchased the beta? Is it still possible?

Being a beta tester will give you access to 30% discount for one year on any Waalaxy subscription.

Now the beta has ended so you cannot subscribe to this plan anymore.

What about using both tools in parallel Waalaxy and ProspectIn?

We don’t recommend this, or either, as we can’t measure quotas on both and remember that even though we’ve managed to get around LinkedIn’s new limits, there are still quotas to keep your account safe. ❌

Will the famous triggers still be available on Waalaxy?

Triggers are indeed available on Waalaxy. But its name is a bit different. Indeed, their new name is now “auto-import“. You can find them inside a sequence. Once you have created it, they will be in the “add leads” tab.

There are 4 types of auto-imports on Waalaxy:

  • Sent me a connection request.
  • Visited my profile.
  • New leads in a saved search.
  • Commented on my LinkedIn post.

You can of course find all the explanations concerning the imports in this article.

Prospecting with Waalaxy: How to export leads to Waalaxy?

The same way as in ProspectIn. There are 11 ways to do this, find out here.

If not, we’ll summarize them for you just below 👇. So you can import from :

  • A Sales Navigator list.
  • From a Sales Navigator search.
  • A standard LinkedIn search.
  • From Recruiter Lite.
  • A LinkedIn Group.
  • A CSV file.
  • Sales Navigator spotlights.
  • A Sales Navigator saved search.
  • A single lead.
  • Import attendees to a LinkedIn event.

Prospecting with Waalaxy: Is it possible to modify your campaigns?

It is not possible today to modify the template of a campaign 😭. Only the deadlines and message contents can be changed.

Why ?

Simply for user experience reasons. Automating on Linkedin and even more so on multichannel, requires an underlying understanding of what is possible to do and what is not.

Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to prospect and make your campaigns viable and effective. However, the majority of our users do not master the concepts underlying automation.

This doesn’t mean that there will never be a sequence editor. We are just taking the time to work on a version that is as easy to use as possible and takes into account all possible cases, to ensure that the campaign, once launched, is viable.

If you have a sequence (scenario) in mind, you can propose it in the support chat and if possible we will create it for you!

As always, you can start by visiting a profile or sending a direct invitation on LinkedIn and add triggers to automate sending an email if the person does not accept your invitation on LinkedIn.

And unlike ProspectIn, campaigns can be paused for your actions to stop! 😄

Do you do demos?

No, but we held a demo like webinar, which you can see the replay here, and other than that we have demo like tutorials, and remember we are available in the support chat of the tool. 😄

P.S. By downloading the tool today, you get a one-week free trial.

For the Multi Channel option, how will you get the emails of the prospects?

If you are connected to the person, you will be able to acquire the email linked to their LinkedIn account. If not, don’t worry, thanks to DropContact we will give you access to the person’s professional email.

Which CRM or API link are you sure to integrate with your solution?

In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to do so without going through Zapier for the most common CRMs: SalesForces, PiperDrive, Hubspot and Zoho.

This is already possible with Zapier and Integromat. You can check out our public roadmap to learn more.

Prospecting with Waalaxy: Is it possible to track email engagement lead by lead?

Yes, you will be able to have a history of actions per lead. And specifically for emails, we will set up a system to know if your email went to spam, the open rate among other things.

Any other questions? Feel free to contact us on the support chat 😀

Freemium with Waalaxy

Indeed, we have plans but we have also set up a Freemium version that allows you to prospect quietly between 80 and 100 people for about 0€.

How do you do it? O€ ? Yes, you get almost all the features. Almost. With the Freemium option, you will not benefit from the email finder option, nor from the CRM synchronization, nor from the automatic profile imports.

On the other hand you will be able to :

  • Send invitations.
  • Send messages.
  • Visit profiles.
  • Follow profiles on LinkedIn.
