An explanation of how many actual invites you are able to send versus Sales Navigator and Growth-X ' results.
If you are being asked to update your Search URL but see there are invites left to be sent, this is an explanation of the discrepancy.
1. First connections on LinkedIn
The search URL in Sales Navigator will display all connections, including 1st, 2nd and 3rd (unless you filter them from the beginning). For example, without filtering connections, your SN search shows 1,000 results. Once you insert the link into the Growth-X app it automatically updates and filters out 1st connections (we cannot send invites to people you are already connected to). Additionally, any new connections made during the campaign will update the number of 'Potential' invites.
For example, if you are already connected (or connected now) to 100 people out of the 1000 from your SN search link, your 'Potential' amount will be 900.
2. Invites already sent / Pending Invites
These include historical, manual or already sent invites to receivers through the current or past G-x campaigns. Though they may not have connected with you, LinkedIn does not allow more than one invitation to be sent to the same receiver from a LinkedIn account. For example, if you have 100 pending invites (manual or from other campaigns) and you sent 500 in your current campaign, the actual number of invites left to be sent are 300/900.
3. Users with email required
Some receivers on LinkedIn hide their email, therefore we cannot send them an invite. These receivers will automatically be skipped over. Lets say 100 require an email, the actual number of invites is now 200.
4. Invites sent by other GX users in your account
If you have more than one user* in your Growth-X account, you cannot send an invite to the same receiver. This is for the purpose of not sending more than one message invite from the same company.
This diagram represents the 'Potential' amount vs. actual amount of invites:
- 'Receiver' is the invitee that receives the message from your LinkedIn account.
- User* refers to one or more users within your Growth-X account
