Most LinkedIn Automation Tools Aren't Safe to Use

While the tools on this list can help you save a lot of time and effort, they do come at a possible price: account suspension.

The LinkedIn algorithm will find a high volume of messaging from your account suspicious — be careful to set daily limits.

Of course, it's always better to invest in tools that are SOC-2 compliant to avoid getting flagged as spam.


Don't Just Automate Messages — Make Them Defensible

If you use them responsibly, LinkedIn automation tools can save a lot of time and help you reach more prospects.

But your prospects aren't fools — they can smell a pitch from a mile away. You want to make sure your messages are of genuine value to people.

Letterdrop can help you automate social selling and engagement using insights rooted in sales calls. Reach out to us if you want to become seen as an expert in your field (and ultimately, book more meetings.)
