Inactivity in LinkedIn can be due to many reasons.
Not logging in, depending on LinkedIn automation tools, and account restriction or banned accounts are some of these reasons.
LinkedIn account restriction is the worst thing that can happen to someone who uses LinkedIn frequently.
If you are using lead generations through LinkedIn, then having restrictions to your LinkedIn account is like being “in jail”.
Every professional interaction with other LinkedIn members is crucial especially for LinkedIn users who have a large network there.
Examples of LinkedIn activities that can cause account restrictions include:
- unusually large amount of page views
- user agreement being violated
- illegal account activity
- repetitive abusive account behaviour
- hacked or compromised account
With this, here are some tips on how to easily recover restricted LinkedIn accounts.
CONTACT LINKEDIN SUPPORT
The simplest and most logical thing to do when your account is restricted is to contact LinkedIn’s support team.
You can contact LinkedIn by submitting a contact form where you can fully explain your case on what had happened.
However, the link for LinkedIn’s support team can be hard to find so it may take you long.
DIRECT CONTACT TO PEOPLE IN LINKEDIN
If you have people from your network that has a connection with from the LinkedIn’s customer service, then it would be better.
You can ask these people for help and they will ask them help on your behalf.
Other people can also tag their LinkedIn contacts or tweet LinkedIn’s Help Contact to ask them directly for help.
As a business community and a huge network, your LinkedIn connections have a huge help on recovering your account.
COMPLY ON APPLICABLE LAWS
Laws such as privacy law, intellectual property law, anti-spam law and regulatory requirements should be followed.
As a LinkedIn user, these laws, and the terms and conditions are first read before doing any activity in LinkedIn.
This will prevent your account for having restrictions from LinkedIn.
PROVIDE ACCURATE INFORMATION ON YOUR PROFILE
Check the contact information that you will enter such as your email address.
This will help your profile to look more credible and reputable.
Use your real name on your LinkedIn profile and avoid adding special characters on your name.
Also, avoid breaking LinkedIn’s user agreement since it will risk your account for restrictions.
USE LINKEDIN PROFESSIONALLY
Unlike other social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, LinkedIn is a business social media platform.
Many business professionals are using it as a means for connection and building relationships and camaraderie with each other.
It is not a dating site or a place to collect information about other people’s lives.
Avoid sending spam messages, unprofessional direct messages, unintended connection requests, and adding them to your email list.
