Linkedin Connection Request Limit

  1. How many connection requests can I send on Linkedin?
  2. How many linkedin connections can you send per day?

1. How many connection requests can I send on Linkedin?

You can send around 100 connections requests per week. That means an average of 20 invitations per business day. This limit is not strict.

It will depend on:

  1. Your daily activity
  2. Your number of connections
  3. The age of your account

This limitation is relatively new. It only exists since June 2021. Before that every Linkedin user was able to sent up to 100 connections request per day (500-700 hundreds per week)

During this summer 2021, many people started to see this message: “You’ve reached the weekly invitation limit”

This change had a huge impact on the way people prospect because the weekly prospecting capacity has been divided by 7.

2. How many linkedin connections can you send per day?

You can send up to 20 connection request per day on average. This is not a fixed number as linkedin impose a weekly limitation, not a daily limitation.

Let’s say you can send up to 100 connection requests in a week. You can send 60 connections request in one day and then 10 per day for the rest of the week. What matters is the number of connection requests you send per week.

3. How to react when you hit the linkedin invitation limit?

If you hit the linkedin invitation limit:

  1. Stop send invitations for 2-3 days
  2. Send a few manual connection requests after a 2-3 days
  3. Relaunch your automation software if the manual connection request worked

Never relaunch your linkedin automation software before making a manual test!

4. How to bypass linkedin connection request limitation?

You can send up to 100 invitations per day if you use tools like LaGrowthMachine.

This tool allows you to easily bypass linkedin weekly limitation. They use the email invite feature to increase your connection request capacity.

The email invite feature allows you to send connection requests to people using their linkedin account email.

To send a connection request through email, go to My Network > More Options below Add Personal contact

Then you’ll be able to choose between different option:

  1. Invite your email address book (Gmail contact for example)
  2. Copy and paste email addresses
  3. Upload a CSV

Once you added the emails, Linkedin will show you all the profile that matched.

You will have to select manually all the people you want to connect with (Linkedin does not allow doing this in bulk to prevent spam)

This process is really painful to do manually if you got a lot of people to invite. Tools like LaGrowthMachine help you automate this process.

They also automatically find the linkedin email addresses of the people so you don’t have to do this job yourself.

5. What are the consequence of the connection request limit?

You only have 100 bullets per week. You better spend some time clearly identifying your targets instead of connecting with random people.

Imagine you are building a 500 lines lead list. If there are 200 unqualified leads in it, you will spend two business week contacting people outside your target.

To improve the accuracy of your lead list, one thing you can do is to use Sales Linkedin Sales Navigator.

It is much more powerful than the basic Linkedin search engine and allow you to build target lead and account list for your prospecting.

Plus, more and more people are doing linkedin outreach so mass messaging people clearly don’t work anymore.

Defining who will receive your message is 70% of the job. If you know you are talking to the right people, finding the words will be easy.

Finding the emails of your prospects is always a great way to reach out to them directly without sending a connection request.
