Auto-respond is feature very effective in marketing.
You can setup a custom “answer”, once someone send to you a message on Linkedin our bot will automatically reply by this personnal answer, that is made to automate 100% your account.
You can use this feature to do “indirect marketing” techniques that works awesomely well.
Here is an exemple :
Someone tells you : Hello Mike, I’m glad to join your network.
Your custom answer : Hello @firstname, (@firstname would be replace by the name of the person) thank you for your message. I see that you love golf like me, I have a gift for you…(and you give him something).
That way you can see that is very powerfull to sell or start building relationships.
