How to get started with Turbo

The Turbo Edition of Dux-Soup is perfect for scaling your lead generation on Linkedin. Its drip campaigns feature allows you to create unlimited campaigns, each with up to 12 LinkedIn actions, designed to drip-feed personalized outreach messages and actions to your prospects.

With Dux-Soup Turbo you can visit a profile on LinkedIn, invite them to connect with you, endorse them, follow them, and send them a direct message or InMail - all on an automated schedule. It's been proven to save 75% of the time spent doing your LinkedIn lead generation manually.

Once you've defined your campaign actions and messaging in Dux-Soup, and found your perfect list of prospects, just set Dux-Soup to work. It's like having a virtual assistant- only much cheaper!

And the benefits of Turbo don't stop at personalized LinkedIn outreach campaigns. Turbo also gives you workflow integration (think of connecting LinkedIn to your CRM system so you can enroll a profile from Pipedrive into your Dux-Soup campaign, or pull new LinkedIn connections into Hubspot) and a Dashboard (the Dux-Dash) for lead management and campaign analysis.

Getting started - LinkedIn basics

Before you get going with your Turbo lead generation activities on LinkedIn, let’s have a look at some of the essentials that will give you a good basis for success.

Did you know that every time you perform an action on LinkedIn it creates a notification somewhere? It stands to reason that the more active you are, the more people are going to notice you, and the more credible you’ll become. 

A well-presented profile page is the most ‘easy win’ possible! Keep it up-to-date and relevant to the leads you want to attract. An update to date profile photo, relevant background information, a headline, skills and experience are your advert to the world.

Your first mission is to get people to visit your profile so don’t be afraid to update your headline periodically. If you’re recruiting or focused on clients in a specific industry, put it out there so when people visit your profile they can make an informed decision about what to do next.

What Dux-Soup Turbo can do

Let’s start with a look at the main features of Turbo.

  • It’s a fully automated LinkedIn outreach tool that will build your lists, view profiles and send your outreach actions, allowing you to focus your time on prospects who have been responsive.
  • It gives you the ability to integrate with thousands of other platforms.
  • The tool offers complete campaign deployment and analysis for instant visibility of your outreach success rates.
  • It offers coordinated outreach for Teams by allowing drip campaigns to be shared with other team members.

Dux-Soup Turbo vs Pro

Dux-Soup Turbo is a complete tool for your lead gen, it includes all of the features that our Professional edition offers and more! To sum these up, Dux-Soup Pro automates the sending of connection requests and a single follow-up message to 1st-degree connections. API and integrations are not available with Pro.

Pro features include:

  • Scan and visit profiles
  • Organize potential leads
  • Connect with LinkedIn profiles by sending a personalized message
  • Engage with LinkedIn prospects through a single direct message

Dux-Soup Turbo gives you:

  • Drip campaigns; the ability to create campaigns with up to 12 actions, with custom time delays between actions. Dux-Soup will schedule your campaign actions and execute them once the delay period has passed. If a prospect responds to an action, they will drop out of the campaign, allowing you to respond manually
  • Unlimited campaigns. Once your campaigns are defined, you can enroll profiles into their target campaigns
  • Dux-Dash, a Lead Dashboard to monitor progress, campaign statistics and conversion rates
  • An open API for access to our native integrations (Hubspot, Pipedrive, Woodpecker etc) plus endless integration possibilities using Zapier or Make.

1. Basic setup 

Dux-Soup installation takes just a few clicks. Head to the Chrome Web Store, select “add to Chrome” and subscribe to Dux-Soup Turbo with a monthly or annual payment plan. 

Then you can move on to setting up your campaigns.

2. Setting up a drip campaign with Dux-Soup Turbo

You can create up to 12 campaign steps in each campaign, selecting from InMail, Visit, Endorse, Follow, Connection Request or Message.

An example of a completed campaign is as follows:

Note: You can stack up to 12 LinkedIn actions in a campaign.

The blog LinkedIn lead generation campaigns - a 10-step workflow template is a great resource for getting started on recommended campaign sequencing and messaging.

If you’re in a team and have a Dux-Soup team account with multiple seats, you can then share your campaigns by enabling the checkbox ‘Team Campaign’. With this you get a personalized team signature to sign off messages with, allowing you to maintain a professional and consistent look across your entire team.

3. Create a list of prospects to enroll into your campaign

Now you’ve created your campaign, let’s find your audience.

You can find your prospects using LinkedIn, Sales Navigator or Recruiter and any of the different lists from within those platforms that Dux-Soup recognises. Use all of the LinkedIn search criteria to build the best quality lists possible. 

Have a read of the blog How to search and filter with LinkedIn and Dux-Soup to make your LinkedIn search and filtering more effective.

Note: The degree of connection will impact the campaign actions! 2nd/3rd degree connections will get a connection request and 1st degree connections will get the follow-up actions.

4. The enrollment process 

It’s straightforward to enroll profiles into your campaigns and there are a few options:

  • To manually select individual profiles to enroll in your LinkedIn drip campaign using the Dux-Soup Tricks widget. The widget will appear when you create a LinkedIn search. Use the widget to choose the campaign you wish to enroll a profile into and then click ‘Enroll’. This will automatically schedule the first action in the drip campaign, then Dux-Soup will schedule the next action according to the delay that’s been set.
  • Adding profiles to a campaign in bulk is a more efficient approach. Make your search on LinkedIn, Sales Navigator or Recruiter, wait for the ‘At your service’ message to appear and hit the Dux-Soup icon. Then select the ‘Enroll Profiles’ option from the drop-down and select the campaign name.
  • Enrolling profiles from a file into a campaign can be done by uploading a CSV file into the Dux-Dash Funnel Flow page.

To see how simple the enrollment process is, watch a demo of each option in the webinar ‘Get started with Dux-Soup Turbo’. Go to 18:54mins of the recording.

For a deeper dive into the enrollment of prospects into drip campaigns read the blog Enrolling prospects into campaigns.

And that’s it! You’ve set up Dux-Soup Turbo and your campaigns are up and running. 

The next step is to see how the campaigns are performing.

5. Campaign Monitoring

The Funnel Flow in the Dux-Dash allows you to monitor and control the progress of your campaign(s). By monitoring your campaign success results, you’ll be able to make incremental changes to your target audience and messaging to improve conversion rates.

In the Funnel flow you can:

  • Monitor how many prospects have been invited/messaged
  • Check your acceptance rates per campaign
  • Review campaign responses to decide on the next action(s)

When you select one of the stages of your campaign you can see the prospects list for that segment.

The Prospects panel provides functionality to manage your drip campaign funnel flow and handle your LinkedIn Inbox. 

When a person responds, the campaign pauses and you get to decide what happens next. For example, if you choose ‘continue’ they will receive the next message in the campaign. Select ‘switch’ to move them to another campaign or you might want to ‘message’ them, in which case a message will be sent via LinkedIn from within the Prospects panel.

To see the campaign in progress, the Dux-Soup Queued Activity page will show you the queued activity for all your Dux-Soup campaigns. Here you can carry out various actions including; filtering by a specific action, removing selected queued actions and finding the subsequent action for a specific LinkedIn profile.
