The LinkedIn Contact By Tags Tool


Contacting connections by tags on LinkedIn is an efficient way to communicate with a targeted group of people within your network. By organizing your connections into tags based on common interests, job titles, or industries, you can easily send personalized messages to groups of individuals with similar backgrounds or needs.

This approach can save you time and effort, as you don’t need to manually search for and message each connection individually. Additionally, contacting connections by tags can help you build stronger relationships with your network by showing that you understand their specific interests and needs.

Furthermore, using tags can also help you segment your network for different purposes, such as lead generation, marketing, or recruitment. You can create tags based on the specific goals you want to achieve, and then reach out to those individuals with relevant messaging. What can make this easier for you is the LinkedIn Contact by Tags tool in Su Social to reach out to those users.

Navigating the LinkedIn Contact by Tags tool

You can access the tool from the TOOLS page, select the LinkedIn account you want to work on, and navigate to the Contact by Tags tool.

We’ll discuss each of the four tabs in the following section:


The Run Timers and Settings sections can be found in the Settings tab.

Run Timers

  1. Wait between X and Y minutes before each new operation – allows you to set up a time frame before the tool starts a new operation.
  2. Contact between X and Y profiles per operation – indicates the number of users that are going to be contacted during each operation.
  3. Delay sending a message for X and Y hours after connections are added to Pending Connections – you can specify a delay in sending the messages in order to make the actions look more authentic (as opposed to sending the messages ASAP after they are listed under the Pending Connections tab).
  4. You can use these to set a daily and hourly cap for the tool, and when it is reached, it will automatically stop sending messages until the next day/hour. You can also set the limits to rise steadily until it reaches your daily/hourly target; this feature may be helpful for users who want to warm up their accounts but remember to use this gradually.
  5. Similar to the option above, you can use these to set a daily and hourly cap but this time it’s for the secondary messages. Once it is reached, it will automatically stop sending secondary messages until the next day/hour. You can also set the limits to rise steadily until it reaches your daily/hourly target; this feature may be helpful for users who want to warm up their accounts but remember to use this gradually.
  6. Execute between HH: MM and HH: MM – allows you to control the time when the Contact by Tags tool will execute actions. You can adjust this setting and also add more intervals or even randomize the timers daily.
  7. Days of the week when to operate – you can choose the days that the tool will perform the actions.

    💡The days you chose for the Follow tool to operate can be randomly rearranged each week by choosing the Rotate Days option. For instance, the tool will select a different set of three days for the following week if you chose Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If you don’t want to follow users on weekends, you can also choose to exclude them from the rotation.


  1. All URLs on your message text (if any) will be shortened using the link shortener you set up under Settings > Connectivity.
  2. This will have the tool skip sending the message if the user has been sent a message by Su Social before (either via the Contact or Search and Contact tools).
  3. This will skip the user if they have previously sent your account a message.

Pending Connections

This tool doesn’t have any sources that you would manually input. Instead, the approved connections made by the Connector and Search and Connect tools will be listed here. Take note that you must enable Friends sync under Social Profiles > account > Show Advanced Profile Settings > Synchronization section in order for the approved connections to show up.



This is where you will formulate the message that you want to send to those users. Since the tool name is Contact by Tags, the messages will be categorized to the users depending on the tag that you input to them under the Connector and Search and Connect tools or under the Pending Connections tab.

  1. Enter the tag which would get the message
  2. Compose the message text for the said tag, you may use the tokens listed below.
  3. There’s also an option to incorporate spin syntax and add emojis so that each user will receive a varied version of the message thereby avoiding spam.
  4. If you want to add photos or videos to the message, click the respective action buttons
  5. You may send secondary messages to the users
  6. Click on the ADD INPUT button to have them indexed in the table below.


Here is where the successfully contacted users will be listed. You can also see here the date the message was sent, the recipient name, the keyword (or the user’s LinkedIn URL), the message sent, and the secondary message count (if any). You also have action buttons to DELETE ALLEXPORT ALL, and individually DELETEBROWSE (open on an external browser), BROWSE EMBEDDED, and COPY each link.


Overall, using tags to contact connections on LinkedIn can be a powerful strategy for networking and building relationships, as well as for achieving specific business goals. You can further simplify the process by having Su Social send a message to those tagged users on your behalf so you can focus on other tasks for your social media needs.
