Reply allows users to add LinkedIn actions to your sequences as a separate step right from the Sequence setup page.

When adding a LinkedIn step to your sequence, there are 4 step types you can choose from (more on each type below):

  • Message
  • Connect
  • InMail
  • View Profile

After you add one of these steps to your Reply sequence, the system will automatically generate the corresponding task for each step. The tasks can then be managed - edited, duplicated, archived, etc. - and executed from the Tasks page in the web app or directly within our Chrome Extension.

Adding the LinkedIn step to your sequence:

You can add the new step in the Sequence Wizard or from the Steps tab on the Sequences page - just click the Plus button in the top right corner or choose the LinkedIn icon at the bottom of your screen.

In the task step editor, you can apply templates and insert variables. The eye icon in the lower right corner of the window allows you to preview your message. Click on Save to add the step.

LinkedIn tasks in Reply’s Extension:

Message

The Message task is used to send messages to LinkedIn users. You can send messages if you are already connected or if the contact already exists in your network.

If the contact is not on your network, you will see the contact's profile and the following message in Reply Chrome Extension: Message/InMail cannot be sent due to contact’s account settings.

If you open the contact's profile using the LinkedIn Sales Navigator link with a free or premium account, LinkedIn will offer to upgrade your LinkedIn subscription to a higher tier.

Reply Chrome Extension finishes the task automatically as soon as you send the message in LinkedIn or LinkedIn Sales Navigator.
