Special Notice:



Find+Seek uses technologies that are "technically" a breach to Section 8.2 of Linkedin's User Agreement. Specifically, Linkedin doesn't permit you to allow someone else to manage your account, and they don't like any automation tools that contribute to a spam culture.

Is it illegal? Is my account at risk of being shut down?

While Find+Seek leverages technologies that Linkedin doesn't permit in their User Agreement, it's not illegal. Find+Seek does however, represent the introduction of 2 risks to your Linkedin account. But they are small, and we have never seen these risks manifest.

  • Account Access: Linkedin's Terms Of Use doesn't permit you to share your account credentials with another person. Find+Seek requires access to your account to send 50-75 outbound connection requests each morning and manage your inbox.
  • Technical Automation: Linkedin's Terms Of Use doesn't permit you to use automation technologies to "abuse" the platform's existing capabilities.
Excessive or sudden change in your profile behavior might prompt Linkedin to take issue with your account activity. In the rare case this happens, they will send you a notice to "cut it out." If you continue with the excessive account activity, Linkedin may temporarily restrict your account and require you to explicilty agree to stop using automation technoligies to spam people. Find+Seek has never had any of these issues with our client's Linkedin accounts.

How do we manage these risks?

While Find+Seek represents the introduction of risk to your Linkedin account, the risks are small (and the benefits are outstanding if you are a good fit). Linkedin takes great measure to discourage the abuse of its platform, and the subsequent development of a spam culture. One of the reasons Linkedin is such a great prospecting platform is precisely because of the absence of spam culture. Our data shows that professionals are up to 340% more responsive to cold outreach on Linkedin than they are to cold calls & emails.

Put simply, we don't spam.

Spamming high volumes of prospects with cheap sales pitches are terribly ineffective as an outbound strategy. Find+Seek fundamentally depends on prospects being receptive to cold outreach on Linkedin to help you achieve your outbound sales goals. This means we are financially and ethically incentivised to be stewards of good practise when outreaching from your Linkedin account:

  • Ramp Up Period: Linkedin's Terms Of Use doesn't permit you to share your account credentials with another person. Find+Seek requires access to your account to send max 50 outbound connection requests each morning and manage your inbox.
  • Max 50 Connection Requests Per Day: Linkedin's Terms Of Use doesn't permit you to share your account credentials with another person. Find+Seek requires access to your account to send max 50 outbound connection requests each morning and manage your inbox.
  • Max 4-step follow up sequence: Linkedin's Terms Of Use doesn't permit you to use automation technologies to "abuse" the platform's existing capabilities.
Our best results come from practises that Linkedin is trying to encourage - personal, conversational outreach to very select groups of prospects in a mannor that is inviting and non-spammy. Find+Seek fosters outreach practises that reflect careful, mutually beneficial prospecting activity. We don't take on clients unless they have a well-defined, unique value proposition with a proven track record of success. This helps ensure that our outreach is effective and ultimately, ROI positive.

What happens if my account recieves an abuse warning?

Find+Seek has never recieved an abuse warning from Linkedin on any client account. But, in the rare circumstance where this happens, we will cease all outbound activity immediately, cancel the contract and refund you fees for the current month.

What happens if my account gets temporarily restricted?

If this ever were to happen, you would need to work with Linkedin to unlock your account. This may require you to check off an agreement box promising that you will no longer use 3rd party technologies and services to conduct abusive acitivty on their platform.
