You can send messages to the members of a group you belong to without sending an invite request.

Here is how you can set up a Group Messaging Campaign

1. Go to the campaigns menu page and click "Add new" button. Please check the image below:

2. On the campaign setup page, start by entering the campaign name, choose search as the lead source and select LinkedIn Group URL from the search type. Once done, you will see the form to enter search URL (paste the search URL you have copied from LinkedIn or Sales Navigator), then enter the list name in the form below that, the default selection of 2nd and 3rd+ connections should work as the connection type and hit continue. Please check the image below:

Sales Navigator users: Please note that if you have selected multiple search filters, you will need to save the search in Sales Navigator and copy-paste the Sales Navigator's saved search URL. Please see the article on how to save searches on LinkedIn.

Free LinkedIn users: If you are using a free LinkedIn account, you will not be able to filter group members. Just find the group you would like to message and copy the URL. Make sure the group ID is in the URL. The URL will look like the example below.

3. On the sequences tab, you can create multiple action types apart from just sending a group message. For eg. you can set your 1st sequence step to message group member and the 2nd step to visit profile or like a post etc. Please check the image below:

On the messaging step, you can use our AI Writer to generate a message and also attach an image or a file such as word, excel or pdf if needed. Choose the appropriate actions and add as many steps you need based on set intervals and hit continue.

4. On the settings tab, you can add the daily action limits, randomize the actions, select appropriate advanced filters such as "Exclude contacts if found in another campaign" etc. and create a custom schedule for the campaign. Please check the image below:

6. Lastly, you can review the campaign details, sequences and settings make any corrections if needed and finally launch the campaign.

Notes:

  1. If you are the admin of the group, you can send 50 messages per day to your non-1st connection per day. Otherwise, if you are not the admin, you be able to send 10 messages to non-1st connections per month.

  2. You can only send messages to a group you have been a part of for at least 4 days.

  3. You have to be either the owner or a member of a group you are messaging.

  4. Free LinkedIn account users can only save up to 1000 contacts and LinkedIn premium users can save up to 2500 contacts from a search

  5. The group message you send appears in the “Message request inbox” area of LinkedIn and the recipient needs to accept your message to be able to reply. For your information here is how LinkedIn displays messages to group members.

  6. The option of uploading a CSV file of your group members is not yet available.

  7. Please do not select multiple groups while saving the search in LinkedIn or Sales Navigator. The Search URL should contain only one group ID.
