Tips to avoid getting account restriction or suspension warning from Linkedin

These days automation and cold outreach on LinkedIn are skyrocketing.

It has become just another medium for cold outreach just like cold email marketing.

So it’s common for a LinkedIn member to get at least one cold outreach message every day.

This also includes beginners that don’t know or follow best practices of cold outreach. Because of this LinkedIn members are getting frustrated and they learned the best practices to stay away from spammers!!

Linkedin is also getting smarter day by day. If you use basic LinkedIn automation tools that don’t come with features to safeguard your LinkedIn account you might end up losing your account after receiving multiple warnings.

On the other hand, Linkedin has unlimited opportunities to find leads to our business. So, not choosing to automate Linkedin is also not a good idea. If you can’t take the risk you don’t deserve the reward.
You can completely avoid warnings if you use the right tools and take the necessary precautions.

Unlike almost every other LinkedIn automation tool being detected by LinkedIn nowadays, the Linkedautomate tool is 100% undetectable.
But there are some chances that you might get an “Unusual activity” warning from LinkedIn or an account restriction if you don’t take necessary precautions which are explained in this post.

What happens when you get a warning?

You get logged out of Linkedin automatically. When you re-login to your LinkedIn next time, a warning similar to the image will be shown:

If you get this warning first time, don’t panic. Take the necessary precautions and slow down as much as possible. Follow tips from this post to avoid this situation in the future

If you see this warning more than once, it’s time to get panic, your account might get suspended any time soon after 2-3 warnings.

What happens when your account gets restricted?

Account restriction is slightly different than warning and suspension.

In the case of account restriction, you won’t be able to send connection requests to anyone without entering their LinkedIn email address.

What is the reason for the account restriction?

As per the screenshot shown above, the reason for the restriction is: Too many people mark your invitations as spam or “I don’t know”

Luckily at least we now know what is the reason to get your account restricted. Based on this reason, we can think about how to avoid that situation. We have found a few ideas that can help you avoid this kind of situations:

Here are some tips to avoid getting a warning from LinkedIn:

1) If possible don’t let multiple users use or manage the same LinkedIn account as simultaneous access can trigger an activity spike
2) Change the password of your LinkedIn account frequently or once you are switching from one LinkedIn automation software to another
3) Don’t use two or more different LinkedIn automation tools simultaneously. Disable any other LinkedIn automation software when using our software
4) Use a limit per day. Don’t keep sending unlimited connection requests, at least at the beginning. Start from lower and slowly increase day by day

5) Use maximum possible delay between actions in campaign settings.

Think about optimizing your campaign to eliminate the chances of getting reported as spam:

6) Use strong filters to narrow down prospects so that you reach out to only those who are mostly interested in what you have to offer. Not who might get frustrated. You can use the exclude keywords feature within the software or You can also use “boolean search” to narrow your search results

Tips to avoid people reporting your invitations as “I don’t know” which results in your account getting restricted:

7) Use your best writing/psychology skills to create an invitation intro message. Think like this: Once the user reads my message, he/she should either reply to it or ignore it but shouldn’t report it as spam. Avoid sending lengthy formal messages with links and emails in it as they will trigger an instant spam alert in the user’s mind. Give it some twist. With LinkedAutomate you can see how many people read your message, how many replied etc

8) Manually review and make necessary changes to the personalization fields used in your message template for all prospects’ profiles before sending automated connection requests to them. The practice of including some “traps” in the first name is increasingly being adopted by Linkedin outreach haters. Beware of profiles that have all caps names, emojis in names, or special characters in the name. Either avoid them or make necessary changes from the LinkedAutomate campaign queue.

Linkedautomate has all the necessary features to control your automation activity, monitoring and alerting activity spikes, performance reports, etc to help you with safe automation.
