Here are the first steps:

Once you got credentials, click on “Add new” and connect.
Your freshly created account will appear on your dashboard. You can enjoy 1 month free trial for your first account. Later you will need to buy licenses and assign it to your accounts.
You can now click on “Open” and connect to the LinkedIn Account on your machine.
You can navigate on LinkedIn like you were on your real browser! Congratulation, you create the first account of your fleet.
But this not the end…
If you automate too many LinkedIn accounts on the same computer (IP address) LinkedIn will catch you in seconds. That’s why you need proxies.
2. Add a proxy to your linkedin accounts
To manage multiple linkedin accounts and stay under the radar, you need to use proxies or VPNs. Go to Proxy6.net and buy an IPV6 Proxy
Choose the country you want your LinkedIn account to operate from. As you can see, it’s really cheap.
Once you bought the proxy, go to “My proxies”. You’ll see the information you’ll need to connect the proxy to Linkedin Helper.
Pick your LinkedIn account and enter the information given to your Proxy6.

After you should, the proxy assigned to your LinkedIn account.
You can now open your new LinkedIn account and navigate safely on multiple LinkedIn accounts without being caught by LinkedIn.

Create a “human like” behavior

- Don’t automate on weekends
- 150 actions/day
Go to “Advanced Limits”
Set it up to:
- 100 invitations a week = 5 x 25 invitations/day
- 100 messages/day
You should be safe with this
4. Upload your leads

Go to Upload Profiles URLs > Upload CSV file. You only got 100 invitations/week
Make sure the profile you upload are qualified prospects for your business. You got fewer bullets to aim to the right target… So don’t waste them!
If you want to build a qualified lead lists and avoid contacting people that are not relevant to your business:
- Use Sales Navigator instead of basic Linkedin search: Sales Navigator offers much more filters that will allow creating really curated lead list

Sales Navigator often makes mistakes dues to the way the filter works and Evaboot will help you to automatically detect all the unqualified leads in your search results.
