Linked Helper 2 integration with Zapier webhooks

Linked Helper 2 integration with Zapier webhooksGo to Zapier using this link https://zapier.com/developer/public-invite/104983/f86b86cb906bff3cb2e1c3b8f4a7dbe4/ and create a new Zap2. Find Linked Helper 2 application, select it and press ‘Continue’3. Click the 'Sign in' button and login with your Linked Helper account. Then press continue. If you have 401 error, then probably the user with this email does not exist in Linked Helper or the password is wrong.4. Then you can set an initial name for this Zapier trigger and select a LinkedIn account if you want to use this Zapier integration only with that account. It’s better to set a meaningful name for identifying it later, but you can change that field later in Linked Helper app.5. Press ‘Test trigger’ button and then ‘Continue’Note: check Tip #1: Sending Custom Fields / Variables to Zapier at the bottom fo this article if you want to send custom fields as well.6. Finish your Zap configuration and publish it. Only when your Zap is published, it sends data to Linked Helper server.7. Now you should see your Zapier webhook in Zapier tab of Linked Helper launcher. You can change its name, assign it to another LinkedIn account, or make it unassigned (can be used by all LinkedIn accounts). You can filter only subscribed or unsubscribed triggers (trigger is marked as ‘unsubscribed’ when your Zap’s trigger is off).8. Then you can add new action ‘SendPersonToZapier’ and select previously created Zapier webhook from the dropdown list. Press ‘Save’Tip #1: Sending Custom Fields / Variables to ZapierAs Linked Helper 2 allows you to upload or set custom fields to profiles to use them in your message templates, you may want to send them through Zapier as well.The problem is that Zapier doesn’t show them in the data sample when you set up your Zap:The workaround is simple: you just need double curly brackets.{{cs_hubspot_crm_id}}Zapier will change it to:Don’t worry that Zapier shows “No data” for such variables. When you send data via LH2, you will receive custom variables at your target destination (CRM, Google Spreadsheet, …).Linked Helper 2 integration with Zapier webhooks was originally published in Linked Helper on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Why is my campaign shown as sleeping? When will it start?

The general rule goes “A campaign goes to sleep when there is nothing to execute at the moment according to the settings”If you hover over the pause sign, a pop-up will show when it is due to resume.Please check the following:Have you reached Maximum Daily Actions limit?Settings => Limits => Max actions per 24 hoursThis setting guards your LinkedIn account security. It prevents you from doing too much activity on your LinkedIn account.You have a choice to wait until the next daily limit opens. Or you can raise this number — all campaigns will kick off immediately or after you click “Start campaigns runner”. We don’t recommend exceeding daily limits too often, but occasionally, if you need to send just 5 more invites and you can’t do it because of the daily actions cap — why not?Active campaigns will go to sleep mode after hitting the Maximum actions per 24 hours limit2. Are you out of working hours?All running campaigns, when they reach the range of hours marked as non-working, will go to sleep mode. To change that, go to Settings => Limits => find the restriction and hit ‘Trash bin’ to remove it or change ‘Do not work’ to ‘24 hours’ mode.If none of the above is the reason, check your Campaign’s time-outs.3. Are all your Actions paused due to time-out?All your current campaign’s actions are paused due to time-out between iterations or because you manually changed ‘Start at’ date to postpone the action.If your Workflow has a sequence of three actions, and Action 3, let’s say, goes to sleep due to time-out, other action(s) with profiles in queue will take on. This will not yet put the whole Campaign to sleep. However, if Action 1, Action 2 and Action 3 are all in time-out state, the Campaign goes to sleep as there’s no action to execute for the time being.Perhaps, at some point in the past you postponed the ‘Start at’ date.In either cases, check actions with non-empty queue(s). They will have a future ‘Start at’ date. If you must start the campaign immediately, you need to manually change “Start at” date.Why is my campaign shown as sleeping?

How to limit inviting by 50 profiles per day?

Let’s assume your goal is to send no more than 50 invitations via LinkedIn no matter how many campaigns you use for this in Linked Helper.At the same time, you want to limit invitations only, without stopping any other actions.If, on a given day, you plan to run one campaign which involves inviting, you need to tune ‘Process per iteration’ and ‘Timeout between iteration’ settings on the ‘Invite 2nd and 3rd level contacts’ Action in the Workflow of that Campaign.Linked Helper performs in batches. On the screenshot below, Inviting action is configured in a way to invite 10 profiles followed by a 5-hour timeout. In other words, it will take 25 hours to invite 50 profiles.Invite 10 profiles every 5 hoursGiven that the next iteration is to start at 08:00 am, here’s the workflow:Same effect can be achieved with a different breakdown: invite 16 profiles followed by an 8-hour timeout. This will get us 48 sent invitations in 24 hours (1440 mins):Invite 16 profiles every 8 hoursOr simply invite 25 profiles followed by a 12-hour timeout:Invite 25 profiles every 12 hoursThe idea is to spread your desired limit over 24 hours evenly.In case you want to run several campaigns on a given day, you would need to split your 50 profiles among 2 campaigns first, and then apply the above logic on the Action level.Campaign #1 (20 invitations in 24 hours)· Process per iteration — 10· Timeout between iterations — 12 hours (720 mins)Campaign #2 (30 invitations in 24 hours)· Process per iteration — 10· Timeout between iterations — 8 hours (480 mins)Above we’ve outlined the general principle of breaking your workload into equal parts and using timeouts to spread it onto the 24-hour day.A few things to consider:First, ‘Maximum Daily Actions’ limit always overrides any lower level limits. For the above described case, it must be at least 50 for this scheme to work.Go to Settings => Limits => Max actions per 24 hoursSecond, don’t forget to leave your computer on and Campaigns runner active to avoid unnecessary interruptions of Linked Helper. Do not turn your computer off. This is important because ‘Process per iteration’ counter does not expire at the end of the day. An iteration counts as ‘complete’ when your have sent 25 invitations (successfull or failed). In theory (and in practice, too) you may face the situation when it takes 3 days to complete one small iteration of 25 profiles because your constantly switch off your computer.How to limit inviting by 50 profiles per day? was originally published in Linked Helper on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Top 10 automation tools for LinkedIn 2019

Top 15 automation tools for LinkedIn 2020In more than 4 years on the market, Linked Helper 2 helped thousands of people solve sales and marketing tasks. What started as a simple tool to auto-connect with people from LinkedIn search, has quickly won the leading position among the best automation tools for LinkedIn. In this article we will look at how to use Linked Helper tools for lead generation in LinkedIn.Follow profilesInvite 2nd & 3rd level contactsMessage Template Editor ProInvite & Follow-up CampaignMessage to 1st connections | Group membersVisit and Extract ToolExtract companies/organizationsEndorse my contactsGroup InviterCollect post likers or commentatorsSent invites cancellerInmail to 2nd and 3rd levelUpload profile URLsDrip CampaignsInvite person to eventFollow ProfilesThis tool allows you to start following your 2nd and 3rd level connections in bulk. It’s a proven technique to increase the acceptance rate of your sent invitations and grow your network fast. Practice shows that by following your leads prior to inviting them — you will likely start receiving more incoming connection requests, or that they will more willingly ‘make friends’ with you later when you invite them. Naturally, this also helps you get more profile views on LinkedIn. Next, by following certain people and unfollowing others, you control what posts you see in your feed. By interacting with your prospect’s content, putting likes and comments, you increase the chance to add them to your network.Invite 2nd and 3rd level contactsAuto-inviting is indispensable from lead generation on LinkedIn. With this tool you can send hundreds of connections requests automatically. This allows you to significantly scale up your business and saves you hours of manual work.The tool has several interesting features worth mentioning. These include random timeouts that create a real-human effect behind the account and are part of what we call “safe LinkedIn automation”.Random time-outsThe built-in name checker will recognize unusual, misspelled names, names that include symbols and plain words, which otherwise could ruin your message — and will replace it with the right value. What can be worse that wasting your sales opportunity because you’ve given away that you were using automation? Besides, all names are editable if you do not fully trust the name checker and want to change something by yourself.Finally, the tool supports several platforms: Sales Navigator, LinkedIn, Recruiter, Talent. Collecting contacts from one platform, while inviting them from another is no longer a problem: you can choose to switch it using the ‘Change platform’ setting.Message Template Editor ProLinkedIn automation tools have gone a long way recently, and today a good piece of software must allow for personalization. Can you use LinkedIn automation at scale and still sound personal? Can you vary your message depending, let’s say, on the industry, a skill, or location, or whether I and the recipient have or don’t have mutual contacts automatically?Yes. With the powerful Message template editor tool from Linked Helper 2 you can customize your message using names, company and current position data, number of mutual contacts, and even custom fields that you can add yourself! If you want to address, let’s say, a group of restaurant managers, you may need to refer to restaurant awards or ratings or other industry-specific data. That’s where custom fields come in. The less “robot-like” your message looks, the better.Invite and Follow-up CampaignThis tool goes beyond just inviting and has 2 more steps — filtering out newly added connections to send them a follow-up message. This makes a perfect Invite & Follow up workflow for your initial sales outreach on LinkedIn. You will quickly expand your network with people who fit your target audience, and then qualify leads by sending them a follow-up with a few questions and/or your sales pitch.It’s made as a fully autonomous sequence of three actions that you can “set and forget”:· action 1 will invite contacts who you select to upload in the queue;· action 2 works as a gateway: it will analyze at even intervals of time newly added contacts and move them further for the follow-up;· action 3 will send a follow-up message to newly added contacts;Postpone your follow-up by adding a desired delay that could be set in days or hours:Message to 1st connections | group membersAuto-message your first connections on LinkedIn using Message to 1st connections. Unlike connection requests, you can send unlimited messages to your 1st connections, which opens a lot of sales opportunities. You can plan your outreach over a sequence of messages, therefore creating message chains.Message to 1st connections allows you to set up message sequences (chains)The Linked Helper’s ‘Message to 1st connections’ tool has everything to make your messaging strategy smart.First and foremost, it has a built-in message history analyzer to capture replies and put them in a separate list. You can also skip contacts with whom you might have interacted manually in between messages. Give a custom name to every message in a sequence, i.e. “sales pitch”, “offering discount”, “registration link”, so you can see where you stand with each contact.Include ‘Check for replies’ step to your messaging sequence, so you can jump in to respond to warm leads who replied, but continue your sales sequence for those who didn’t.Visit and Extract ToolA great LinkedIn automation tool for extracting profile data. It scrapes information available on profile pages and accumulates it into a csv file. This tool extracts names, workplaces, data about education, skills, interests, industry, mutual connections, and email or phone (for 1st level connections only).Here are just some of the popular tasks that Visit and Extract tool can be used for:Send a message only to people who have Java Script skill listed;Send a message to people with 1000+ followers;3. Split profiles by geographical area, if you collected them as ‘commentators’ under a post and want to send a different message to each area;4. Filter out people who became your 1st connections before February, 2020.Extract companies (organizations / schools)This tool’s name speaks for itself: it helps you extract information from company pages in LinkedIn. For example, you type in a keyword in the search field, go to Companies and see a lot of results.Use Companies Extractor to obtain data such as: Company name, company url in LinkedIn, website, domain, industry and specialties, headquarters, number of followers and other.You may further filter that list to address only companies that are located in a certain geographical area or have this or that number of followers.Even better than that, the csv will contain domain field, which can be used to get emails of your 2nd and 3rd level contacts. Here is the tutorial how to do it.Endorse My ContactsShortly after adding people to your network, you may want to build better relationship by endorsing their skills. Endorse My Contacts tool automatically visits each profile in queue and endorses skills as specified in the settings:· All skills listed· First 2, 3, 4…skills· Specific skills like “Interior design”, for exampleSome of the benefits are getting endorsements in return and warming up your network before contacting them with your sales offer.Group InviterIn LinkedIn you may invite your 1st connections to join a group provided that you are a member of that group.Group Inviter tool helps you automate sending invitations to your 1st connections. Consider using this tool if you build a group page as a way to promote your business or industry. Many people use LinkedIn Groups for lead generation, so why ignore this tool?Just collect your 1st connections, then proceed to a group page and click “Invite”Collect from all sourcesLinked Helper 2 automates various actions on LinkedIn for you, such as viewing profiles, adding and removing people from your network, sending messages, etc. When it comes to targeting a specific audience, finding the right people and attracting leads, most people would rely on the LinkedIn search tool: playing with keywords and filters.To make your lead generation and sales more effective, you have other sources to turn to: you audience sits in LinkedIn groups, they promote themselves under user posts by leaving comments and likes, or perhaps you know what schools they went to and it’s just what you need.‘Collect Post Likers and Commentators’ tool allows you to pull a list of people who engaged with your post instantly. Once you click on ‘View post’ as a separate page in Linked Helper 2, you will see ‘collect’ button on the left of your screen.Other LinkedIn sources include: Recruiter Project page, School Alumni page, Who viewed your profile page, Sales Navigator search page and many more.Sent Invites CancellerIf you find yourself sending a lot of connection requests that do not get accepted, you will have to clear your pending invitations queue from time to time. Practice shows that having over 1000 pending connection requests affects your deliverability rates. Actually, your new invites do not get delivered. Clicking “Withdraw” button 500 times can be quite overwhelming! Use Sent Invites Canceller to automatically withdraw a lot of pending connections requests. This tool does it almost in an instant, freeing up your time for more important things on LinkedIn. Select the date and the tool will cancel all invites that were sent before that day in a few clicks.InMail to 2nd and 3rd levelLinkedIn Premium subscriptions include InMail credits — messages that can be sent to people you are not connected to. If you are using this feature of LinkedIn regularly, you may want to automate this as well. InMail to 2nd and 3rd level works if you have active InMail credits. Just build a list of people you need to send InMails to, set Message Template and click “Start”.Upload Profile URLsThe feature of uploading external links is a must for a good LinkedIn automation tool.Very often the filters on LinkedIn search page are not enough to build a list for a specific marketing purpose. What if your target audience is scattered across different locations, industries and profiles? Or what if you source your list not from LinkedIn at all, but from an agency or an external person who supplies you the data? Apparently, you will need a way to somehow upload a list of profiles externally. ‘Upload Profile URLs’ solves this task. Just paste a csv file or profile URLs themselves into the pop-up window. The tool will recognize them and you will be able to proceed with inviting, messaging or doing other things. See how to use Upload Profile URLs to tailor your outreach to the people you need.Drip CampaignsThere will be little value in even the safest and best LinkedIn automation software, if it still involves lots of human control and is no more than a collection of fragmented features that do not link with each other. In sales efforts, it is important to be persistent and follow a plan or a strategy.Drip Campaigns are custom-created chains of actions that you build according to your lead generation needs and your strategy. An example would be:following a group of profiles — then inviting them immediately — wait for 3 days — endorse 3 skills — wait 7 days — send a sales pitchOr perhaps, you want to send a series of messages to your existing network? In that case, the campaign would be:Message 1 — wait 3 days — message 2 — wait 2 days — message 3 — wait 10 hours — message 4…You get the idea. When you build a campaign, you define in what order you do things on LinkedIn. Next, you need to decide:…how to put people on the stop-list to never contact them accidentally;…what kind of delays must be added between actions;…what tags to add to processed profiles;…should this campaign start immediately or on a specific day…how many invitations must be sent during the dayWhen you’ve made your choices, you hit the ‘Start campaigns runner’ button and tune in only when replies arrive to your inbox. Drip campaigns are so flexible that you can implement almost any lead generation strategy on LinkedIn, building it from scratch with your own messages, delays, in the order you prefer.Campaigns panel in Linked Helper 2Invite person to eventLinkedIn has recently added a terrific feature that allows you to host an event and invite your network to participate. This is good to spice up your network on LinkedIn, and a lot of marketers use events feature to share content or research customers’ needs before sending their sales pitch. If your network is quite big, consider using LinkedIn automation to send invites to your event in bulk. With the ‘Invite person to event tool’, you only need to paste the link to event, select your recipients and click the “Start” button.Top 10 automation tools for LinkedIn 2019 was originally published in Linked Helper on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

How to tailor your message by gender of the recipient?

This article is for Linked Helper 1.Linked Helper 1 is outdated and was replaced by Linked Helper 2. You can find it here https://www.linkedhelper.com/Linked Helper 2 knowledge base is available here https://linkedhelper.zendesk.com/hc/en-usSome languages require gender-specific greetings for men and women. Like Madame and Monsieur in French. Although LinkedIn doesn’t show gender on the page, we can work around this using just 3 things:Name Index — a spreadsheet consisting of 2 columns: name and gender-relevant prefix. This table, once created, can be saved and used for all your campaigns where you need to customize the message based on the gender;Custom fields — this Linked Helper functionality allows you to create and add your own custom field besides most commonly used first_name, last_name, company, position. Using this tutorial, we will create a “gender” variableThe power of Excel and a little bit of time 🙂Ideally, what we want to achieve in our list is having each message with Madame or Monsieur prefix based on the gender or the recipient:Off we go!Name Index. You can try to find one on the web or build your own. By googling “prénoms français csv” we get a full list of French names in csv. This file needs to build matches between a name and a relevant prefix2. Custom fields. Let’s proceed to creating a “gender” custom field.2.1. Collect contacts from the LinkedIn Search Page to Linked Helper:2.2. Download all your recipients into a csv file: go to View Collected, then click Select all and Download selected.2.3. After downloading a CSV file, open it in Excel using the tutorial below:How to Import CSV file into MS ExcelKeep only C, D, E columnsOf all these data we will keep only Profile url, First name and Last name(columns C, D, E) and delete other columns.2.4. Add the 4th column “cs_greeting”. Make sure this column’s heading begins with cs_, as this will allow Linked Helper to recognize it as a new variable.2.4. In a separate sheet of this csv file paste your Name Index table.2.5. Now let’s start filling in our cs_greeting field using VLOOKUP, an Excel function to lookup and retrieve data from a specific column in table. It will help us to insert the correct greeting automatically:By dragging down the formula you will copy it into the whole cell range and see that the correct greetings have been pasted for each name. Go through your list carefully to check any errors or incorrect matches. You can manually correct them.2.6.1. Save your Excel file with “cs_greeting” variable as CSV and upload it to Linked Helper by clicking “Upload Custom Fields” button in the “View collected” list:After clicking “Save” button you will see what greeting will be used in the message for each contact:3. Now we can close “View collected” list and go to the “Message” tab to set up a message with the newly created variable:As you would see in the preview by clicking Show Message, the message that goes out contains the correct greetingYou can find the Name Index (Prenoms) csv and the Custom variable Excel files here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Sgi-LmUiLfiIAuTbUCEMLlzOG7lPWHByDownload Linked Helper — LinkedIn Automation tool from our websiteWrite me your questions & ideas : info@linkedhelper.comCheck our web-site : http://linkedhelper.com/How to tailor your message by gender of the recipient? was originally published in Linked Helper on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
