Linkedin automation tools can make outreach, social media marketing, and management so much easier.

Basically, these tools send out connection requests, follow-ups, and even content for your feed automatically. 

You might want to automate everything or only certain things, depending on your business needs. 

For example, if you are running outreach campaigns, you could automate connection requests but have a person follow up in real-time.

Or if you have a Linkedin content schedule, these automation tools can really come in handy to streamline your workflow

So if you’re looking for a comparison guide on some of the best Linkedin automation tools out there, be sure to read this article. 

In it, we will discuss features, pricing, and reviews.

1. Expandi

We use Expandi at SalesBread.

Why?

Because we have found it to be the safest Linkedin automation tool. We have been using it for about 3 years now, and have never once had a client’s account blocked by Linkedin. 

We love this tool because it mimics human behavior, making it really hard for Linkedin to detect if it’s a bot.

Besides this Expandi has a dedicated IP address and isn’t a Chrome extension. 

Expandi also withdraws pending invites on autopilot which is a great feature. 

How does Expandi work?

Expandi basically sends Linkedin messages to your connections through an automated sequence. You can send connection requests, InMail messages, and skill endorsements. Expandi can also “like” posts and follow any Linkedin profile or company page automatically.

Expandi also allows you to only send 100 Linkedin connection requests per day, which is great because it means that Linkedin won’t restrict your account. You can also send up to 200 follow-up messages per day too. 

We suggest sending between 30-50 automated personalized messages per day with Linkedin lead generation because this kind of “human-like” behavior will ensure that Linkedin doesn’t pick up that you’re using automation tools.

How much does it cost?

Expandi starts at $99 per month, per seat. The good news is that they also offer a 7-day free trial to test whether you like the tool or not. 

Best Features

  • Not a Chrome Extension
  • There are limits in place for only sending 100 messages per day
  • User-friendly
  • Expandi offers integrations with other marketing tools.
  • Dedicated IP address

How does Lempod work?

Lempod is a browser-based tool, so even though it can be great, you need to be weary that it doesn’t get your account blocked.

Lempod will then 10 x your Linkedin post views, which will help with engagement, thus catching the attention of candidates. You can then start conversations with job candidates. 

If you are an influencer Lempod allows content makers to automatically support each other with mutual engagement. You would create content for your target audience on Linkedin.

Then you would join the right LinkedIn engagement pods with Lempod. 

Then add your post to Lempod and other members will automatically like/comment on your content. 

Lempod can also be used by marketers. For example, if you would like to direct your network to your blogs on your website, or an article that you have shared, you can use

Lempod to 10x your Linkedin post views.

Thus bringing in inbound leads from your Linkedin network.

A quick word from SalesBread

Most of these tools have similar features. But what we have found the most important thing to consider when choosing a Linkedin automation tool is:

  • It has to have a dedicated IP address
  • It should have safe limits in place so that you don’t overset Linkedin’s limits
  • Chrome extensions aren’t the best tools to use
  • Make sure that customer support has good reviews
  • Be cautious of tools that promise to send hundreds of messages a week, because this is a surefire way to get your Linkedin account restricted.
