Generating Lists

Whichever Dux-Soup plan you have chosen, your results will depend upon the quality of the lists you define to carry out your actions against. The more time and effort you put in here, the better your lists will be and the greater your chances of finding higher quality leads. Dux-Soup Pro, Turbo and Cloud all run against multiple lists in LinkedIn, Sales Nav and Recruiter. To help you master your audience and increase the focus of your LinkedIn lead generation have a read of the blog: Using LinkedIn lists with Dux-Soup to boost your lead generation.

There are many ways to create lists and the searching and filtering functions in LinkedIn is a powerful feature that can hugely enhance the effectiveness of your outreach. The blog How to Search and Filter with LinkedIn and Dux-Soup will help you to get grips with the options.

Strategy and Actions

Depending on the version of Dux-Soup you use, your strategy and actions will vary. Here’s how:


Dux-Soup can carry out a list of actions during an auto-visit. These actions usually contain a connection message, a direct message to 1st degree prospects, or an InMail. The ‘Visit’ or ‘Visit and Connect’ function is used for this activity.


The Turbo version gives you the ability to build and manage your campaigns. An unlimited number of campaigns can be set up, each with up to 12 actions. This enables you to match your campaign content to your target group and enroll prospects.


With Cloud you can build and manage your campaigns in the same way as Turbo. The enrollment happens locally but everything gets executed virtually


With Pro, monitoring outstanding invites and accepted connection requests is carried out manually.

Turbo and Cloud activity are monitored through the Dux-Dash. In the Funnel flow you can track your campaign statistics - including invitations sent, accepted connections, follow-ups you have sent, prospects that have responded to you and qualified leads by clicking on one of the columns. You can also choose the campaign you wish to track and the timeframe.


The Dux-Soup API creates a 2-way communication between your existing CRM/marketing integration tool and there’s a raft of Integration options including Hubspot, Pipedrive and Sharpspring. These direct CRM connections are visible and configurable via the Dux-Dash. and integrations are also available. ‍


Let’s work our way through the three Dux-Soup editions from a functionality point of view. This blog showcases an expert user interface that you can easily enable in the Options menu, under the User tab.

We’ll begin with the most basic edition…

Here’s a look at all the things Pro can do for you when auto-visiting profiles:

By using the throttling settings, you’re in control of the speed the Dux works at, as well as the number of connection requests, visits and direct messages it sends each day.
