How do I set up a connection message?

To send a personalised connection message to your 2nd and 3rd-degree connections (people you are not connected with), you need to have a paid Dux-Soup account.

Expert UI 

Click on the Dux-Soup icon in your browser and go to the Options panel:

Enable the option to send personalised messages by clicking on both boxes in the Automated Actions

We highly recommend sending a personalised connection message with your request because it stands out from the usual connection requests, looks more powerful and has a much higher acceptance rate.

Make sure to use the markers provided to make your message more bespoke, e.g. use their first name by adding _FN_ to or _CN_ for their company name.
