October Quacks 2020

October Quacks

Dux-Soup News

We hope you had a spooky, fun-filled Halloween. Rest easy though, there’s nothing frightening about what Dux-Soup has been up to in October!

We know that for some of you it can be daunting to actually get going on LinkedIn lead generation. So, last month we went back to basics with our webinar program - running two Get Started webinars for Pro and Turbo users.

We hope those who attended (over 900 of you!) or watched the webinar recording were able to move forward and get their lead gen started with a bang!

With LinkedIn usage still on the rise we've also been hard at work promoting Dux-Soup at online events and into relevant communities. Don’t forget that you can be part of the action (and be rewarded for your efforts) by using your unique Refer a Friend link or signing up to the Dux Affiliate scheme.

Read on to find out what the Dux-Soup team has been up to this month.

New Releases

LinkedIn had some major updates in October and the Dux team were quick to jump on and fix any problems caused as quickly as possible, issuing three new Dux version updates.

We do update Dux-Soup regularly so watch out for the newest releases and update your Dux-Soup by restarting Chrome or by following these steps

New Features

You might have already noticed that we added a couple of new features this month that (judging by the reaction on the Facebook user group) have you buzzing! 

  • You can now auto-cancel pending invites
  • And ignore profiles with not enough connections

Yep, you can cancel pending invitations automatically after a set time by using Dux-Soup. Very cool, bearing in mind that this feature was recently removed in LinkedIn!

Simply click on the Dux-Soup icon in your browser, go to the Options, Actions tab and turn on this function. Dux-Soup will automatically check for pending connections that need to be cancelled every 60 minutes.

A couple of things to note: If you have more than one page of pending connections, Dux-Soup only removes one page of invitations every 60 minutes. Also, this feature won’t work if your Planner is set up to snooze.

Is there anything you think would enhance Dux-Soup or make it work better for you? Then make sure you add it as a feature request here and we will consider it for future Dux-Soup updates. 

Dux-Dash update

Our tech team has released an update to the Dux-Dash Funnel Stats this month. Now you can easily copy profiles from Dux-Dash to the clipboard. Plus:

  • The prospect list now has images
  • Clicking on a prospect opens the LinkedIn profile in a new tab
  • Copying the list now includes the profile ID, location and industry, in addition to first name, industry, title and URL.


Getting back into events - it’s been a while!

 We were proud to sponsor an 'ECommerce & Marketplace' Growth Hacker Talk with Spike - Growth Marketing Agency at the end of last month.  Around 30 people attended (socially distanced of course) in the venue in Amsterdam with another 200 or so dialled in.


We’re also sponsoring an upcoming lead generation workshop for 4 startups in the B2B arena.

Do let us know at if you’re thinking of running any virtual events that you’d like Dux to speak at.
