LinkedIn

According to one study, 80% of B2B leads are acquired through LinkedIn. However, a minority of sales teams have suitable tools to automate this social network.

We-Connect is one of them. The platform boasts of being the most secure , advanced and affordable . We will see in this article if its features live up to its ambition .

Here’s our full We-Connect review .

Our opinion on We-Connect in a nutshell

We-Connect is one of the best LinkedIn automation tools, according to many users and rankings on the Internet. However, it seems to be reserved only for prospecting on LinkedIn . Unlike LeadIn, We-Connect does not allow you to run multi- channel campaigns by combining, for example, emailing .

What is We-Connect?

We-Connect is a cloud-based LinkedIn automation solution. It allows you to prospect, perform lead nurturing and convert prospects . Its motto ?

A new approach to prospecting on LinkedIn by banishing the classic mass invitations.

Indeed, with LinkedIn’s restrictions , sending such mass invitations is the promise of sanctions, including the suspension of your account.

We-Connect’s bet is therefore to offer intelligent sequence campaigns. You now only focus on lead quality and less on quantity.

With We-Connect ‘s smart and intuitive campaign sequences, you automate actions like:

  • Visit a profile

  • Like a post

  • Send a login message

  • Etc.

For the duration of a campaign, the tool therefore completely simulates a human action in order to avoid being spotted by LinkedIn’s algorithms .

We-Connect features

We-Connect is a set of more than 55 features , of which here are the main ones.

Intelligent Sequence Management

You can configure the different actions of your campaigns from A to Z. The tool can for example:

  • Like events and posts

  • Follow up with prospects

  • Send connection messages while respecting a random delay between each action.

You can even define the actions to be taken in the event that an invitation is not accepted . You can, for this, attract the attention of the prospect by visiting his profile again or by liking his publications.

On the other hand, if the invitation is accepted, you can schedule the sending of follow-up messages or any other action intended to increase your chances of converting the prospect.

You can thus start several campaigns and define different schemas for each of them:

  • For group members

  • For sending free InMails to profiles who opened your message

  • For the first connections

  • Etc.

Sending free InMails

Instead of following the classic connect invite scheme, you can also send free InMails directly to your prospects. This requires open profiles . The response rate may, in this case, be higher than that of a classic invitation campaign.

Sending messages to group members

We-Connect makes it possible to circumvent the weekly connection limits imposed by LinkedIn . This is done in particular through the direct sending of messages to members of LinkedIn groups without sending connection requests .

We-Connect allows you to access data from all your work tools thanks to API and Zapier integration. Thanks to the API terminals, you also have the possibility of importing contacts from your CRM to integrate them into your We-Connect campaigns.

Multiple campaign management
