What is LinkedIn automation?

LinkedIn automation means using tools, software, or bots to automate repetitive tasks and work on audience building. This might include:

  1. Sending connection requests.
  2. Sequential messaging.
  3. Profile visits.
  4. Data extraction and enrichment.


Or any other task you would normally do manually.


Advanced automation tools can send personalized messages to 1st connections or targeted LinkedIn users. They can scrape information like job titles from users’ LinkedIn profile URLs and use it to fill in the blanks of message templates that you’ve approved. 


Over time you can create a hyper-targeted audience using customer segmentation tags to target your ideal customer. They can also perform more basic tasks, like making it appear that you’ve given someone a profile view, a skill endorsement or liked the content they’ve shared.

Why use a LinkedIn automation tool?

LinkedIn automation tools are powerful platforms that save time and increase efficiency when it comes to building your network. Whether you’re scaling your efforts as an SDR or building a pipeline as a recruiter, automation tools complete tasks in the background whilst you focus on other work.


These tools can help scale sales efforts, particularly in the early stages when you’re establishing viable leads. They can warm up prospects by adding more touch points into your relationship with a prospect, like commenting or reacting to their post. This makes someone familiar with your name, making them more likely to convert later on.


A LinkedIn automation tool can create a sequence of actions, like: 

  • Liking and commenting on someone’s post.
  • Sending them a connection request.
  • Messaging them.
  • Following up later if they don’t reply.

This automated chain of events is often called a campaign or sequence. You can usually design and personalize them within the automation tool or use a sequence template, and monitor your campaign performance over time.


Using a legitimate and legal automation tool is essential to avoid account suspension or penalties. Ensure you invest in GDPR and CCPA aligned B2B sales tools and use them within appropriate guidelines.

Which are the best LinkedIn automation tools?

We’ve listed our 20 favorite LinkedIn automation tools above, and our top pick for an excellent tool is Kaspr. With Kaspr, you can access emails, phone numbers, and all the relevant data to convert leads into long-lasting partnerships.

Can you get banned for automation on LinkedIn?

Yes, you can get banned for using automation on LinkedIn, though outreach automation tools are popular and common. Violating this rule can lead to account bans, and LinkedIn has taken action against users who breach these terms, particularly if LinkedIn flags you as a user with excessive activity.


As such, when using automation tools on LinkedIn, exercise caution and adhere to best practices. Some tips to minimize the risk include:

  1. Set a daily limit to the number of 20 invitations per day in Kaspr. This will keep the volume of session cookies LinkedIn see low, and stop you from appearing like spam.
  2. Avoid overly commercial approaches and focus on building genuine connections.
  3. Optimize acceptance rates by using open questions in your outreach.
  4. Avoid using aggressive sales tactics that people may perceive as spam.
  5. Delete pending invites regularly to avoid excessive use of automation.


Using automation tools on LinkedIn can be helpful, but it’s crucial to use the safest tool you can, responsibly and in line with LinkedIn’s policies. Check LinkedIn’s official terms of service for the most up-to-date information on automation use.
