You got a list of LinkedIn event attendees

Now, it’s time for outreach

Let me show you how to do it properly

How To Reach Out To LinkedIn Event Attendees?

3 ways to reach out to LinkedIn event attendees:

  1. Message requests
  2. Connections Requests or InMails
  3. Emails

1. Send Messages Requests

LinkedIn is the best social media platform for prospecting and closing leads directly.

You can send direct messages to all LinkedIn event attendees without sending a connection request.

That is one of the technique use to bypass the LinkedIn connection request limit.

If you go to the “Networking” tab, you will notice a “Message” button.

These are called “Messages Requests”.

They appear will appear in the “Other” tab of the inbox.

The name of the event you both participate in can be used as your InMail message subject line: “Via <name of the event>”

This method is convenient because you don’t need to send a connection request.

However, the reply rate will be lower as the messages don’t appear in your prospects’ main inboxes.

2. Connection Requests or InMails

You can send connection requests to LinkedIn event attendees if you prefer to use the regular path.

Here are some guidelines to follow to increase your acceptance rate:

If you want your message to land in your prospect’s main inbox, you can send InMail messages.

That way, you don’t need your connection request to be accepted to start a conversation with them.

This is what InMails look like in your inbox:

3. Find their emails

If the attendees you’ve contacted don’t reply to your message requests or LinkedIn messages, you can still try to find their emails.

There are 2 steps for that:

  1. Find their company name or website
  2. Upload your list into an email finder tool

To achieve these 2 steps, you can use the LinkedIn Profile Scraper Phantom

This tool will extract the company name from the LinkedIn profiles of LinkedIn event attendees.

With this company name, you’ll be able to get the data email finder needs to find emails:

  1. First name
  2. Last name
  3. Company name or domain

The email finder step is included in Phantombuster. You must select your favorite tool, which will automatically add the emails to your Excel file.

Now it’s time to write your messages.

Let’s dive in.

LinkedIn Message Templates For Event Attendees Outreach

Here are 3 InMail message templates to contact LinkedIn event attendees:

  1. After your event
  2. Before an event
  3. After an event

1. After your own event

If you are the person who organized the event, this is simple.

Send a message the day after the event asking for feedback.

Hello <first name>,

Thanks for attending to our webinar ?

I want to make sure we delivered the value that you expected.

I’d appreciate your feedback on the event.

Best, JB

Event attendees love it when people take the time to care for the experience.

Think about the chef at the restaurant who comes to you to ask for feedback: nice, right?

2. Before an event

You can still contact the attendees if you are not organizing the event.

The best strategy is to keep it simple:

Message template

Hello <first name>,

I noticed that you are going to participate in <event name> next week.

What are you expecting from this event?

Best, JB

Note that this is a great way to steal your competitors’ audiences on LinkedIn.

3. After an event

Reaching out to event attendees after the event is even easier.

Same thing.

You need to ask for feedback:

Message template

Hey <first name>

Did you attend our recent webinar {{webinar_name}}?

I’m gathering feedback and would love to hear your thoughts.

Best, JB

It’s essential to ensure they attend to it because many people click the “Attend” button but never appear.

This is a great way to contact people who are potentially disappointed by your competitors.

If they love your competitors, you will know why, which will help you improve your sales and marketing efforts.


These 3 techniques are a great way to use LinkedIn events to contact your target audience without sending pushy sales messages.
