Here are some tips for creating a search and saving it on We-Connect.
1. We recommend creating and saving searches yielding a maximum of:
(a)2500 contacts per search ( if using Sales Navigator)
(b) 1000 contacts per search ( If using free LinkedIn)
2. If you have more contacts in your search than indicated above, please narrow your search based on filters like geography, industry, company size, job function, job title, seniority level, etc.
3. The reason for this restriction is because:
(a) Sales Navigator displays a max 2500 contacts regardless of the number of contacts it shows on the search results. You can view only up to 100 pages with 25 contacts on each page.
(b)Free Linkedin displays a max of 1000 contacts regardless of the number of contacts it shows on the search result. You can only view up to 40 pages with 25 contacts on each page.
4. You can create multiple searches and save each search as a separate search and run campaigns. Read this article if you need help on how to search and save search.
5. Please copy-paste the LinkedIn search URL or Sales Navigator search URL into the We-Connect search bar. There are two tabs. One for "2nd & 3rd connections" and one for "1st connections". Make sure that you are pasting the search in the correct tab.
6. If you are using keywords or a lot of filters in your Sales Navigator search, please save the search and then copy-paste the saved search URL in we-connect. Such a custom search URL contains a lot of parameters in the URL string that it can break during copy-paste. We recommend saving the search on Sales Navigator and use the saved search URL, which contains just one parameter and provides accurate results. Please read this article if you need help on how to save a search in sales navigator.
7. Please make sure that you are copy-pasting the search URL in the correct space. There is a separate tab for 2nd & 3rd + connections and 1st connections tab. The default selection is 2nd & 3rd + connections.
8. If you want to avoid targeting the same contacts across different campaigns and different team members, create a spreadsheet to track your contacts. Please read this article if you need help creating a spreadsheet system.
9. Please avoid conducting and saving multiple searches from We-Connect on the same day. Even Sales Navigator accounts have commercial use limits with reset very 24 hours. Also, please avoid conducting and saving simultaneous searches on we-connect.
