We discover all this together in this article!
What is Dux-Soup?
Dux-Soup is a digital tool designed to manage your LinkedIn account. It is a robot, whose main function is to prospect. It will therefore allow you to automate your prospecting on the social network and therefore save time.
Our opinion on Dux-Soup in a nutshell
Very easy and simple to learn, Dux-Soup allows you to automate your prospecting tasks on LinkedIn .
Overall, we find that the tool fulfills its promises: you can generate leads with minimal effort.
On the other hand, many users complain that they have been blocked by LinkedIn while using Dux-Soup .
On the feature side, only the most expensive subscription is sufficiently comprehensive: the free version is almost useless, and the first paid plan is too limited.
We also regret the absence of automated emailing.
✅ Benefits :
Few reported bugs
❌ Disadvantages :
A slow tool and interface
Many users banned from LinkedIn
Features of Dux-Soup
The Dux-Soup application allows you to do online prospecting. It is based on an analysis of the prospects that interest you. With this analysis, you can target contacts similar to your persona.
Once this analysis is done, the application will study the profile of these leads before putting you in contact. You can make this contact using a personalized message template , with fields specific to each contact.
A message template with Dux-Soup might look like this:
I really enjoyed your last post on[sujet du post] ! I completely agree with you:[call to action à la fin du post] is very important.
This is what drives me every day: I support companies in their digital transformation.
I can review your IT environment free of charge for half an hour. Feel free to book a slot on my calendar here.
Very good day,
Additionally, it can be used to filter results based on characteristics such as:
Centers of interest
The level of connection of the individual
Once you have identified potential prospects , you can then:
Send connection requests
Send tracked messages
Contact your prospects
Once the list of prospects is available, you can then contact them. Thanks to the tags , you will identify the prospects who are really interested in your offer.
To do this, it will suffice to choose the tags appropriately for a better follow-up of your contacts. With good segmentation , your prospects will not seem to receive automated messages, but messages tailored to their area of interest .
Automate your actions
Dux-Soup not only allows you to automatically generate leads, it also allows you to:
Send personalized messages
Send InMail (a premium feature to send a message directly to a LinkedIn member who is not in your connection).
Send personalized invitations
Follow your prospects with alerts
Enrich your customer data
The Dux-Soup plugin allows to collect data and extract certain profiles on LinkedIn. The data that this tool helps you collect about your prospects is usually:
Their email address
A detailed description of the profiles
The centers of interest of the profiles tagged
This data allows you to refine your marketing strategy . You can easily use them to improve your CRM ( Customer RelationShip Management ) and enrich your prospect data.
You can reuse these email addresses to launch campaigns with email automation tools (Dux-Soup does not allow this).
Put Tags (attributes) on contacts to segment lists
When using Dux-Soup, it is easy to no longer recognize which prospects have been contacted or not. Tags are functionalities available to Dux-Soup and which allow you, for example, to consult all your messaging to identify to whom you have not yet written. So you just have to either manually tag the profile or activate an automatic tagging .
2 examples of automatic marking rules :
[SI] the contact never received a message,[ALORS] apply the “uncontacted lead” tag,[SINON] apply the “lead contacted” tag.
[SI] the contact makes an appointment following the exchanges by message,[ALORS] apply the “hot prospect” tag.
Connect with Hubspot / Pipedrive / Zapier
Dux-Soup allows you to connect with several other applications. Among others, Hubspot, Zapier and Pipedrive are among these applications.
Pipedrive is an application to automate your customer relationship management.
Hubspot will help you with all your marketing needs (CRM, support management, marketing automation, CMS, workflows, etc).
Zapier will let you connect Dux-Soup to several other apps. Thanks to Zapier, you can transfer data from Dux-Soup to almost any application.

Dux-Soup has both advantages and disadvantages:
Benefits of Dux-Soup
It is very easy to handle. Indeed, just by installing the Chrome extension , you can perform most of the possible actions.

Thanks to Dux-Soup you will no longer spend your time checking the profiles yourself to identify your prospects :
The value for money is quite advantageous: 49 € for the latest version, when for example its competitor Waalaxy asks for 80 € per month.
It will therefore be necessary to remain within the norm and not to abuse it:
We also notice slowness, whether on LinkedIn, on Chrome (with the extension) and on the tool itself:
Finally, only the most expensive plan is worthy of interest: the first
LeadIn: the ideal alternative to Dux-Soup
LeadIn is a tool that also allows automated prospecting on LinkedIn. Safe and secure, LeadIn allows you to set up high customization and work from an intuitive interface.
Thanks to its message manager , you will be able to reply to your messages from LeadIn without any difficulty. With the possibility of modulating the rhythm of contacts, you therefore do not risk being banned by LinkedIn.
In addition, the tool allows you to do prospecting by email . Thus, the email addresses collected on LinkedIn can be used directly on Leadin!
You can contact your leads through several channels to increase your chances of converting them (goodbye Sendinblue, Mailchimp and their friends).
Multichannel campaigns (emailing)
Identification of people who have visited your page
Know precisely the content visited on your page
Sending personalized and automated emails
Customizing your messages with images
Send connection request
Sending tracked messages
Send personalized messages
Send personalized invitations
Follow your prospects
Dux-Soup is one of the tools to manage prospecting automatically. This tool is not complete.
With all the disadvantages of Dux-Soup (risk of getting you banned from LinkedIn, no emailing possible, many users having been banned, etc.), LeadIn seems like a better option.
At €97 per month , LeadIn is certainly more expensive, but it also replaces your emailing tool .
Especially since to obtain quality leads, you need a complete tool to create real sales funnels, to offer a smooth and natural experience to your leads .
