Hey there! So, have you heard of LinkedIn Sales Navigator?
It’s a tool that sales professionals use to connect with potential clients on LinkedIn. One of its features is the ability to send direct messages to prospects. However, LinkedIn has some rules to prevent spamming & keep things legit.
Enter the LinkedIn Sales Navigator message limit. This is the maximum number of messages a user can send using the tool & it varies based on the user’s subscription level.
If you’re using the free version, you’re limited to just 15 messages per month. But if you’re a paid subscriber, you’ll have higher limits (and they may change over time).
It’s super important to keep an eye on your message limit so that you don’t hit the maximum & slow down your outreach efforts.
By being mindful of your message usage, you can use Sales Navigator to its fullest potential & connect with new leads & clients like a pro!
Well, in this article you will get to know all about making sure you have a great experience using InMail on LinkedIn.
Let’s Know About Credits
Sales Navigator wants its user to make the most of the InMails & enjoy a high-quality service experience. As a result, LinkedIn gives you credits for that generally on the first of every month.
Based on these credits you can send the Messages/InMails. You can save up these credits from month to month. But there’s a limit to how many you can accumulate. This is in detail have been covered just some scrolls away.
However, the Good News is that your credits never EXPIRE!
How does Sales Navigator InMail Credit Work?
If you don’t hear back from someone after sending an InMail on LinkedIn, unfortunately, you won’t get a credit back.
But, if they respond within 90 days, you’ll get an InMail credit. Another thing you should remember is that if you send a follow-up InMail before getting a response, it will use another credit.
And don’t worry, LinkedIn will automatically send a reminder to the person you messaged after three days.
On a brighter note, with the new messaging system on LinkedIn, “Interested” & “Maybe later” replies count as positive responses.
While “Not interested” is considered a decline. You’ll get a credit back for all three responses, but only when the recipient replies. So, if they say they’re interested or want to connect later, you’ll get a credit back right away.
It’s good to keep in mind that you can make changes or delete a message you’ve sent recently on LinkedIn. Plus, if the person you messaged responds (even with an auto-reply), you’ll get an extra InMail credit to use later.
However, if you delete a message that hasn’t been responded to yet, you won’t get any credits back. So it’s best to wait until you hear back before deleting any messages you’ve sent.
Monthly InMail Sales Navigator Messages Credit Limits
Now as we talked about the credits, it’s easier to discuss LinkedIn Sales Navigator message limits. This is the number of InMail message credits you receive on a monthly basis:
- If you are a user that uses Premium Career then Sales Navigator provides you with 5 credits.
- For Premium Business Users, 15 credits are provided per month.
- If you have subscribed for the Sales Navigator Core plan then you will get 50 credits monthly.

- A Premium Career user can only hold up to 15 credits.
- For Premium Business accounts the maximum limit is stretched to 45 credits.
- With the Sales Navigator account, you can have access to 150 credits.
- On a Recruiter Lite subscription, you can limit up to 120 credits.
