Do not suddenly change your LinkedIn messaging patterns!
If you go from sending 6 or 7 messages a day to sending 200 a day, LinkedIn will notice the unusual behavior and suspend you.
Increase the number of messages and connection you send each day gradually, by 10 or 15.
Free LinkedIn accounts only allow a very limited number of searches and profile visits. We recommend only using QuickVisit and Visit mode with a LinkedIn premium (paid) account.
If you are not sure please ask.
Don’t get put in LinkedIn jail!
