You’re now limited… 

As of recently, you only get to send around 100 LinkedIn connection requests per week.

For some, that number may still seem like a lot. But as someone using LinkedIn to find and connect with prospects, you know it’s not enough!

Now, when you reach your weekly limit, you’ll receive a notification like this:

You can extend this number by using another type of invites – connections requests by email.

How Sending Connection Requests by Email Works?

Here is how it looks on LinkedIn if you do that manually. 

LinkedIn has a feature that lets you send connection requests to personal connections (i.e. anyone whose email you already have). 

You just need to click “My Network” in the top navigation bar, look on the left-hand side for “Add personal contacts”, and then click more options.

You’ll be taken to a page that looks like this:

Enter your prospects’ email addresses into the text box and press “Continue”. The connection request will then be sent out and appear as a pending sent invitation in your account:

And here is what your prospect will see in their email inbox:

From there, your prospect will simply need to click the “accept” button and confirm your connection request. 

Easy! Right? 

Unfortunately, you can’t personalize these connection requests. But, still, it’s a great way to increase the number of connection requests you can safely send per day and supercharge your outreach.

How to Find a Prospect’s Email Address on LinkedIn

But you may be wondering: how do I find my prospects’ email addresses? Good question! And it’s a problem we at Dripify specialize in helping you solve.

The software uses an advanced email verification algorithm to find and verify corporate email addresses of leads, and does that with a success rate of 50-70%. 

In other words, Dripify will manage to reveal email addresses and eventually connect by email ⅔ of all the leads you’ll add to your campaign. 

Let’s move into the control panel of Dripify so we can show you how to send invitations by email there. 

Step 1 – Create a Dripify Campaign

To get started, just click the “Custom campaign” template:

Step 2 –  Use the “Invite by Email” Button

Once you enter the “sequence builder”, click on the “Invite by email” button:

In this scenario, instead of sending a connection request within LinkedIn, Dripify will shoot the very same connection request to the lead’s email address bypassing the weekly invite limit. Sounds great, right? 🙂

Important! To send connection requests by email you’ll need to know the lead’s email address. Learn how to find corporate email addresses of leads for free with Dripify.
