We highly recommend setting up a Linkedin automation schedule in Orca to prevent automation from occurring outside of work hours. You definitely do not want to run automation 24/7 as it would place your Linkedin account at risk. Plus, there's no added benefit to running Linkedin automation all day everyday.
With over 35% connect rate across the board, it's better to focus your efforts on sparking quality conversations and connecting with leads. Unlike email, Linkedin is not a quantity game, it's about quality. Less is really more.
That said, we advise setting up an automation schedule by going to the Automation Settings tab under Preferences. On the left side of the screen, you'll find a section titled Automation Scheduler where you can set the operating hours for the application by selecting the day and start and end times from the drop down menus. When you are done, click on Add Hours to commit.
To remove a date/time preference, simply select Remove next to the hours.
Automation schedule recommendations
If you are a light Linkedin user or are new to Linkedin, we recommend setting up an initial automation schedule that runs 3-4 hours a day for the first 2-3 of weeks. After the first month, you can gradually ramp up the schedule to 6-8 hours over the course of 2-3 months.
If you are a heavy Linkedin user with a premium subscription or have used other Linkedin automation tools in the past, we recommend setting up an initial automation schedule that runs 4-6 hours a day before ramping it up to 8-10 hours.
Keeping your account safe
Though we cannot 100% guarantee the safety of your Linkedin account from being banned or restricted, we have built-in features that minimize the risk, such as:
- Daily Limits: Orca automatically detects whether or not you are on a basic or premium Linkedin subscription and will automatically adjust the number of engagements it runs per day. For basic accounts, engagements are limited to 100, whereas premium users are limited to 200.
- Randomization: We randomize the max number of engagements per day and intervals between these engagements to give the automation a more human touch.
- Account Monitor: We track anomalies that occur in your Linkedin account, i.e. being logged out or hitting recaptchas, and adjust your limits and intervals accordingly.
