1st Degree Messaging Sequences step-by-step guide:
Classify your sequences appropriately.
Enter an appropriate sequence name for your reference.
Now,in order to reach out to audience already in your network (i.e 1st degree connection) you have to select 1st Degree Message as sequence type.
Find your target audience with a LinkedIn search (LinkedIn Basic and Sales Navigator)
When crafting your search, make sure to only target people inside your network (1st degree connections), but not to people outside your network (2nd and/or 3rd degree connections).
Keep your search to approximately 1,000 results or less. No matter how many results populate within a search, LinkedIn only allows you to access the first 1,000.
Copy the URL from your LinkedIn search and paste it into Lead Connect, then press enter.
Repeat steps 2 & 3 until your entire target audience has been captured.
There is no limit on the number of URL’s a sequence can hold.
There is no cause for concern should the same person appear in multiple URL’s. Lead Connect keeps record of everyone who is enrolled in a sequence to ensure no person is double enrolled (messaged).
Create your sequence of messages.
As your target audience is inside your network (1st degree connections), the first step and all subsequent steps should be a ‘message’.
Set your delays.
Set the number of daily enrollments for your sequence and click start.
Check the responses section daily.
Once someone responds (sends you a message on LinkedIn) they are unenrolled from the sequence i.e. Lead Connect discontinues messaging them.
Click on the ‘conversation’ link to be taken directly to the LinkedIn messaging area so you can read the response and manually craft a reply.
PS: Prospect Blacklist does not work for this type of sequence, all the people (other than currently being enrolled in any other sequence) will be reached out.
