Are you looking for the best way to automate your LinkedIn lead generation?
If so, you’re going to need to use some kind of LinkedIn automation software.
Now there are a LOT of tools out there that you can use and really you can use any tool as long as it allows you to do these 3 main things:
- Connect to potential clients automatically
- Message people who connect back to you automatically
- Do this in a SAFE and non-spammy way
So in this article, I want to go compare two of the most popular LinkedIn automation tools: Meet Alfred and Linked Helper to help you decide which one is BEST for you in your business if your goal is to generate more leads, appointments and clients each month?
Now before I get started, I just want to clarify that LinkedIn automation software is just software. It’s just a tool. It’s not really the tool that gets you RESULTS on LinkedIn; it’s the strategy and messaging behind what you say on LinkedIn that gets you results.
So BEFORE you use ANY LinkedIn automation software…
Make sure you have the right strategy on LinkedIn! Otherwise, what you do, will not work.

Ease of use
This is all about how easy the software is to use.
Both tools have a bit of a learning curve, but they both have lots of free video guides to help get you started.
Here are the main differences in terms of how easy both tools are to use:
Linked Helper 2 has a LOT of features and gives you a lot of customization options. And although this is great if you want a LOT of control over your LinkedIn automation (like how many people you connect to, how often and advanced rules when messaging people)… At the same time, all these features can be a bit overwhelming for someone new to this.
Whereas with Meet Alfred, their user experience is a lot simpler and easier to use. You just run the tool in the background of your computer and it just works without you really having to do anything (once everything is set up of course).
Winner: Meet Alfred
Meet Alfred is easier to use in my opinion and also requires less time to manage the software. It works seamlessly in the background and you don’t need to do much to keep it going. This also saved you a bit more time compared to Linked Helper.
Both have a large amount of features.
Meet Alfred gives you access to all their features only on some of their higher priced packages, whereas Linked Helper 2 gives you access to ALL their features on their lowest priced package.
Both have CRM capable features and Zapier integration. Meet Alfred also has the added bonus of having email and Twitter integration built in (without needing Zapier) if you want to use those features too.
Meet Alfred has some nice extra features, but you need to pay extra for them. Linked Helper has a lot of features out of the box, but not as many extra features as Meet Alfred. But in terms of the most important features, they both have the same ones. So for that reason, I’ll give them both the same rating when it comes to features.
How much does Meet Alfred and Linked Helper cost? Can you get any discounts?
This one is pretty simple. As of writing this, Linked Helper is cheaper than Meet Alfred.
Meet Alfred: $49/month for it’s ‘Essential’ package or $89/month for it’s “Advanced” package
Linked Helper 2: $15/month for everything
Both offer discounts on the monthly price if you pay for more months in advance.
Winner: Linked Helper 2 is the most cost effective solution
If you get stuck or have questions, both offer fast and reliable support.
However, Meet Alfred offers live chat support which means you can get a slightly faster answer by speaking to someone in real-time.
Winner: Meet Alfred
Both offer quick support, but I’ll give Meet Alfred a slight advantage because it offers live chat support and as of right now Linked Helper only has email support.
So, which tool is better: Linked Helper 2 or Meet Alfred?
Both are good and here’s a quick summary of the key points from each software:
Linked Helper (Most cost effective option)
- Requires about 15-20 minutes a day
- Price: $15/month
- Best option if you want the most cost effective solution
- Foreign company (not US based)
- Visit Linked Helper to learn more
Meet Alfred (Easiest to use option)
- Requires about 5 minutes a day
- Price: $49/month
- Best option if you want the easiest solution to use
- US based company
- Visit Meet Alfred to learn more
It’s totally up to you which one you decide to go for. If price is very important to you, then go with Linked Helper as it’s the most cost effective solution (but does come with more of a learning curve). If you want the easiest solution to use and price isn’t a big deal then use Meet Alfred. It also has a few extra features (like built in email / Twitter messages).
