How to manage multiple LinkedIn accounts and use them for outreach

LinkedIn multiple accounts

If you have a LinkedIn account and use it for connecting with potential clients, you might have faced that you are limited to no more than 100 connections per week. Creating another LinkedIn account could be a solution to exceed this and other LinkedIn limits. However, is it possible to create and manage multiple accounts on LinkedIn? And is it worth your effort?

Why run multiple profiles?

What other reasons besides exceeding LinkedIn connection limits are to create multiple LinkedIn profiles?

  • Scale your LinkedIn outreach by sending more prospecting messages.
  • Target your different profiles in different markets.
  • Manage your clients’ accounts as an agency or a freelancer.

Aren’t these good reasons to try?

But let’s get to know first whether it is possible.

Can I have more than one LinkedIn account?

According to LinkedIn Professional Community Policies, creating multiple profiles is not allowed. If you have more than one LinkedIn account, you need to merge them or close all but one.

Also, note that your profile should include your real name and photo, and you are obliged to add only real information about yourself if you create a LinkedIn account.

Then, tie a corresponding LinkedIn profile for each of your Chrome profiles. How to do it? You need to log in from a Chrome profile A to a LinkedIn profile A, from Chrome profile B to LinkedIn profile B, and so on.

This way, you can separate your LinkedIn profiles from each other and manage them from a single device. It is a good technique for manual outreach, but to send messages in bulk and scale your LinkedIn lead generation it is better to use an automation tool.
