This article has been updated - read the latest article on managing multiple LinkedIn accounts.
Dux-Soup can be used by anyone — entrepreneurs, small, medium or large companies with the same aim in mind — to generate more leads. However, if you are a marketing agency offering lead generation services to your clients, you probably have more than one LinkedIn account to manage which requires a more tricky setup.
If you have several LinkedIn accounts to manage, there are a few things that you need to know first (all of these steps will be explained in detail further in the post):
- We recommend having a separate Dux-Soup subscription to each LinkedIn profile that you are managing
- We recommend setting up a new Chrome profile for each LinkedIn account on your browser
So let’s cover the whole process from the beginning.
For every new LinkedIn account that you will be working with, we advise using a separate Dux-Soup account. Let’s say that you run a small agency that offers LinkedIn marketing services and have a couple of different LinkedIn accounts to manage.
Given that you will be using the same computer to manage all of these accounts, let’s start by creating a new Chrome profile on your browser dedicated to each of your clients. This is to make sure you can switch between the profiles easier, it keeps your client’s information more organized and keeps the LinkedIn cookies from the different logins separate.
1. Click the Chrome account icon
2. and click on '+ Add' option:
3. Then, select 'Sign In':
4. Enter your Chrome email and password, and click on 'Next'. Afterwards, choose your avatar and click on the 'Add' button.
Once you are logged in, you can now download the extension via the Chrome Store. Click “‘Add to Chrome” and after the installation, you will see a Dux icon on your browser.
That’s it — you’ve created a separate Dux-Soup account and a separate Chrome space for your client. If you’ve also paid for the Pro account, your subscription will be recognized automatically and you will see a red Dux icon indicating that you are on a Pro version.
You can repeat this process as many times as you like, depending on the number of LinkedIn profiles you have to manage.
Why can’t I use the same Dux-Soup subscription for two separate LinkedIn profiles?
In order to avoid a mix up with the visit history, we highly recommend having separate Dux-Soup accounts. For example, you have done 500 profile visits on one LinkedIn account and then switch to another LinkedIn account — the counter will not reset back to zero but will continue counting the profiles further.
It can be difficult to track which profiles were visited by which LinkedIn profile, especially when you download and tidied the recorded data to prepare for the campaigns. Plus, there is a higher risk that you will forget to change the messaging and send an incorrect message to your potential leads.
Lastly, only by using different Chrome logins for each LinkedIn account can you be sure that LinkedIn is not able to detect that you are accessing different LinkedIn accounts from the same machine. This will help you to keep your client’s account from being temporarily suspended by LinkedIn.
