What exactly is Cleverly?

On average, clients see between 20-50 new conversations with ideal buyers for every 500 prospects engaged.

What types of outreach messages does Cleverly send?

1) Connection requests with or without a personalized message (this depends on your preference)

2) Follow-up messages after the connection request has been accepted (this is only sent to new 1st degree connections that Cleverly has generated for you)

Do I need to LinkedIn Sales Navigator to use Cleverly?

Yes, the account being used for Cleverly will need to have LinkedIn Sales Navigator. We recommend LinkedIn Sales Navigator Professional because it is more affordable. LinkedIn Sales Navigator Professional costs $79.99/mo. If this is your first time signing up for LinkedIn Sales Navigator Professional your first month will be free.

You can use this link to sign up for LinkedIn Sales Navigator.

Does Cleverly need access to my LinkedIn account? Is there any risk of getting banned?

Yes, we use your personal LinkedIn profile and Sales Navigator to craft campaigns and build your dream prospect list. We give you access to a dashboard for responding to prospects and tracking results, but you can log in to your account anytime.

The risk is extremely minimal as we make sure to stay under LinkedIn’s daily outreach limits and continually monitor your campaign to keep your account secure and compliant. Just make sure you aren’t sending a high volume of additional connection requests outside of your Cleverly campaign!

What does Cleverly's dedicated account manager do?

At onboarding, you’ll be assigned to a dedicated account manager who will conduct your kickoff call to get you started and will schedule one-on-one strategy sessions with you throughout your campaign. They’re here to guide you through the lead generation process, answer any questions about prospecting on LinkedIn or sales in general, and give expert strategic advice based on thousands of successful campaigns we’ve run!

Can I use Cleverly's LinkedIn automation platform without the done-for-you service?

This option is currently not available but we are working on a system that will allow new clients to use our LinkedIn automation tool without our done-for-you service in the near future.

Can I send Cleverly a list of specific individuals to send outreach messages to?

No. Unfortunately, we are unable to upload custom lists to engage. If you have a custom list, you will need to create and save those prospects within a saved search in your LinkedIn sales navigator and we then can use that list for your campaign.

Are there any commitments when signing up with Cleverly?

Yes, there is an initial 3-month commitment with our LinkedIn Lead Generation and White-label services. Our LinkedIn Recruiting service is month-to-month with no commitment.

We believe in social selling, which can take a bit of time as relationships need to be created and nurtured before deals are closed. Some clients do see immediate results, but some campaigns take 3-4 weeks to see results. At that time, we use feedback and data to optimize the campaign to improve results.

What is Cleverly's refund policy?

Cleverly does not offer any refunds. This is due to the amount of work and time it requires to craft your campaign strategy, create qualified targeting lists, write persuasive sales messages, and manage your campaign.
