The Open InMail campaign is used to contact people who have an Open Profile and are not your 1st-degree connections on LinkedIn. If the lead you wish to outreach has an open profile and you did not interact with them on LinkedIn before you are able to contact them using an Open InMail Campaign.

Keep in mind, that Expandi does not support paid InMails on LinkedIn.

There are 2 types of InMails on LinkedIn - paid “InMails” and free “Open InMails” that can be sent exclusively to open accounts. Currently, Expandi provides automation of the second option only “Open InMails”

All LinkedIn members can see the full profiles of Premium members who have enabled "Open Profile". In order to be an Open Profile member, you must have a Premium subscription.

Users have a limit set by LinkedIn of 800 Open InMails allowed to be sent in 1 month. We recommend starting low and warming up your Open InMail outreach to a max of 25 open InMails per day.

You will not be able to send leads an Open InMail if you have already contacted them in another way. This means if you already contacted someone using a connection request, it is not possible to outreach them using an Open InMail message and they will be paused in the campaign.

1. Go to Campaigns
