With Linked Helper you can set up a funnel of Actions and process profiles through it. With the help of this Action, you can send an invitation (either with a message or without it) to your 2nd and 3d level contacts to join your network. This is a helpful Action for sellers, marketers, and recruiters as well since once invitation is accepted, you can send unlimited amount of messages to the profile.
- by default, Linked Helper invites profiles via the platform they were collected from (Basic LinkedIn, Sales Navigator, Recruiter). However, you can change the platform for sending invitations after profiles were collected;
- In case 'Invite by using LinkedIn undocumented feature' workaround was used, Override platform was not functioning and Linked Helper was always inviting via regular LinkedIn;
- 'out of network' profiles, that were collected from Sales Navigator search, can be invited in regular LinkedIn even though they are not available for viewing and inviting in Sales Navigator;
- if invitation to be sent to a profile who already invited you first, then Linked Helper won't fail, skip, or send invitation to such a profile, but instead, accept the incoming invitation and move the profile into the Successful list.
You can add "Invite 2nd and 3rd level contacts" to your campaign if you click '+Add action' button in the Workflow tab:

You can customize your template using custom variables, personalized images, or IF THEN ELSE clauses. For that, you need to enable these plugins:
- Conditional IF-THEN-ELSE operator for Message template editor
- Custom template variables
- Attach personalized images
