LinkedIn has introduced a new weekly limit of 100 LinkedIn connection invites. This is a way to bypass that limitation.
You might have encountered this while you were busy extending your network, doing business development or recruiting people.
This means you have reached the newly introduced weekly limit of 100 LinkedIn connection invites. LinkedIn enforced this connection limit to “ensure that our members only receive relevant requests”.
Definitely annoying if you want to recruit people, do marketing automation or have other ways of trying to get interesting conversations going.

Now you probably want to know what ways there are to get around this limit.
There is a way to go around the connection invite limits. You can send connection invites through email. These connection invites are not counted as part of the weekly 100 connection invite limit.

After hitting Continue, the candidates will receive an invite in their mailbox with your selected message that looks like this.
