We are giving you the opportunity to take advantage of LinkedIn automation with Dux-Soup. This is the first integration that is available as a step in the campaign.
The user can use the "LinkedIn automation" step in a campaign, which includes the following actions:
visit the profile,
send a connection request,
send a direct message.
This type of automation requires having a connected Dux-Soup account with the Turbo plan. For a tutorial on installing Dux-Soup on your web browser, check this article »
Thanks to this integration, you will also be able to read incoming messages on LinkedIn in the Inbox and write back from within Woodpecker.
Why use Dux-Soup?
If your business needs require automation of a multi-channel process, Woodpecker-LinkedIn among others, Dux-Soup may be your tool of choice. It’s an easy-to-set-up tool with the option to connect your LinkedIn account via API.
Currently, we don’t have a native integration with LinkedIn due to its requirements when it comes to granting access to their API. However, we are doing everything we can to make this possible in the future, but in the meantime, we offer a solution using Dux-Soup.
Connecting to Woodpecker
The first thing that needs to be done on the Woodpecker side, is to purchase the LinkedIn slot in the Marketplace, just as you would add regular email slots.
Once you have the empty slot, start connecting your LinkedIn account to Woodpecker. Head to the Accounts tab in your Settings, and click the LinkedIn subtab. Here, you will be able to click on the “Add account” button, and a screen with the configuration options will appear.
To properly add a LinkedIn account, you will need the API URL and API Key. Both can be found in your Dux-Soup extension settings. If you’re not sure where to find them, click on the “Show instructions” link below the fields.
For information on API URL and API key, head to the “Connect” tab in Dux-Soup Options, and look for the “Remote Control” category at the bottom of the window. Copy the data you see there and paste it into the fields in Woodpecker:
Remote Control URL into the API URL field,
Remote Control Authentication Key into the API key field.
In case you paste the incorrect APIs, you will be notified about this at the moment of clicking the “Add account” button. After every data is put in place, you will receive information on whether the connection was successful or if something went wrong.
