What the FAQ

Have a question in mind about our Washington LinkedIn lead generation agency but can't see it listed? Chill, just click on the "Check all FAQ" button, and you're all covered.

0 - What is LinkedIn lead generation?

LinkedIn is primarily used by individuals and businesses to connect, network, and seek career or business-related opportunities. 

LinkedIn lead generation means generating leads on LinkedIn. It is the process of identifying and attracting or reaching out to potential customers or clients on LinkedIn with the goal of generating sales leads or business opportunities. 

1 - How much do LinkedIn lead generation agencies specialized in Washington charge?

It is hard to come by a lead generation company that displays a specific dollar tag to their service. In most cases, they’ll require you to talk to their sales to get a custom pricing based on your needs. 

LinkedIn lead generation pricing varies significantly based on a lot of factors such as the complexity of the campaign, their scope of work, the required techstack, the target audience, and the agency’s experience and marketing or outreach standards. 

As well, some agencies may charge a flat fee for their services, while others will offer pricing based on the number of leads generated, the duration of the campaign, or the level of ongoing support required. 

It's also common for agencies to require a minimum commitment period or project size — so, you might need to consider some upfront investment fees.

That said, from our experience, depending on the company you’re partnering with, your company’s caliber, and the end result they promise you, LinkedIn lead generation services can cost you anywhere between $1.000 to $50.000 per month. 

Unlike most LinkedIn lead generation agencies, at Nerdy Joe, we have a crystal clear pricing. We believe when you hire for lead generation, all you care about is to get leads, fill your sales pipeline and basically get meetings or sales opportunities with genuinely interested prospects. 

So, we offer you three monthly flat fee packages where you pay $499 for 2 sales-qualified leads, $999 for 6 sales-qualified leads, and $1999 for 15 sales-qualified leads. 

2 - Do you provide Washington-based lead data when doing LinkedIn lead generation?

We don’t use or rely on client data. Likewise, we don’t use data or sales intelligence tools to quickly whip up lists of thousands of people and start blasting them cold emails. 

The most significant and the hardest part of our lead generation process at Nerdy Joe is to identify your ideal customer. We will ask you a series of questions that help us paint a vivid picture of who you’re selling your product or service to and why they are your ideal customer. 

From there, we will conduct comprehensive research to identify potential leads within your target market in Washington (if such is asked or needed) and then conduct the outreach campaign to win them over for your business.

3 - How does your LinkedIn lead generation process allow you to be compliant with international data privacy laws?

At Nerdy Joe, we operate with utmost respect for all international data privacy laws. Our lead generation practices are ethically carried out with proper permissions and are fully compliant with the applicable legal and regulatory norms.

4 - What are the best LinkedIn lead generation agencies in Washington?

There are numerous LinkedIn lead generation agencies operating in Washington. 

  • Nerdy Joe
  • Salaria Sales
  • Gibbs Marketing LLC
  • Cience Technologies
  • Belkins
  • SalesNash

Understand that some of the companies on this may not be specifically based in Washington. But still, they have the creative team and expertise to understand your needs and deliver excellent lead generation results. 

5 - What is a LinkedIn lead generation agency, and why do I need one for my Washington-based business?

LinkedIn offers an unrivaled pool of B2B professionals with whom to connect and network, as well as find business and sales opportunities. A LinkedIn lead generation agency helps you use this vast network of professionals to identify potential buyers for your Washington-based business, reach out to them with a targeted campaign and help you turn them into customers.

6 - How do you get Washington-based qualified leads with LinkedIn?

The most important part of work is to understand your target audience and excellently build your ideal customer profile. It goes from understanding your product and the people it serves best or the people who need it, and understanding the why of their need for your product.  

If  for you that’s the Washington market, we will conduct thorough research, identify the people, the LinkedIn profiles or accounts, create a campaign to attract and convert them for your business.

7 - How do I start a LinkedIn lead generation campaign?

To start a LinkedIn lead generation campaign with Nerdy Joe, you just need to choose the package that fits your business requirements and your budget the best. 

As you sign up, a project is created on our Basecamp and you will be automatically added to it. Next, we will kick the conversation to onboard you, get straight on things like the target audience, ICP, etc, then will get your LinkedIn account credentials and start doing the work. 

8 - How does Nerdy Joe work?

We start by understanding your business and your product inside out, conducting detailed market research, finding your ICP and building your buyer persona, setting up or improving your LinkedIn account, crafting personalized outreach messages — we do it all manually — and consistently engaging with potential leads. The main work is to identify leads from your target market on LinkedIn, connect with them, and nurture these relationships towards conversion.

9 - How long will it take to get results?

Timelines vary depending on various factors. If you’re a little familiar with or have worked with any lead generation agency in the past, then we are sure you can tell that lead generation is all about testing, reporting, improving, trying strategies until finding the “go-to-market” approach to ensuring results. 

That said, it can happen that some companies (based on their industry, target customers, product values, etc.) will start seeing interesting results from Day 1 and for others, it may take a couple of weeks to bring any substantial results to the table. 

But however things go, you can be sure that we will deliver results within the first month of your campaign. We understand the importance of timely results and strive to achieve them. 

10 - How fast do you start working?

Starting a new project is always an exciting and fun process for us. It depends on how reactive you are, really. As soon as you sign up, our team quickly celebrates with some happy emojis in our Campfire. The next minute, a project with your company’s details is automatically created in our Basecamp and you’ll get a link to access the project. From there, we will kick off the talks to understand things like your goals, ICP, and anything else we deem important for the campaign. Then we will get your account details, lay down the groundwork and start experimenting with messaging and offers.   

11 - What is your LinkedIn lead generation process, and what makes you different?

Detailing everything we do to generate leads on LinkedIn will definitely require an entire article. You can learn more about how we do lead generation here. Still, here is a rough outline of the process. 

Our LinkedIn lead generation process comprises market research, ICP and buyer persona identification, lead identification, personalized outreach, and consistent engagement. 

12 - How to hire a LinkedIn lead generation agency?

Hiring a LinkedIn lead generation agency shouldn’t be complicated. Chances are that you’re talking to several or a couple LinkedIn lead generation agencies and at the end, you will choose the one that aligns with your needs. 

Well of course, the best way is to hear what each agency says and promises then compare your options. You’ll have to keep your goals and budget in mind. The most important thing is to get clear on what you’re signing up for. 

How many leads will you get? How much will cost? What’s the quality of the leads you get? Can you easily turn them into clients? Nerdy Joe makes this process simple with our transparent pricing and flexible packages.

13 - Why should I hire a Washington-specialized LinkedIn lead generation agency?

Hiring a Washington-specialized LinkedIn lead generation agency gives you the benefit of working with a team that comprehends the unique dynamics of the Washington market, which can significantly improve your chances of capturing high-quality leads.

The real issue is that most of the companies you’ll find won’t necessarily be based in Washington. Some might not even be based in the United States. The most important thing is to ensure that they have the dynamics and the creative talent to make it in your target market. 

At Nerdy Joe, our ICP and lead research processes make us the best agency to do LinkedIn lead generation for your business in Washington. The most significant aspect of the work is to understand what you’re offering and who we should reach out to — and we always nail it to perfection.

14 - How many LinkedIn connections can I send per day?

LinkedIn doesn't specify an exact limit but encourages users to send requests only to people they know. There is the possibility to get your account restricted for heavy activity if you're sending too many requests. 

At Nerdy Joe, we prioritize quality over quantity and ensure that each request is personalized and relevant. Also, our outreach campaigns are not targeted to huge lists but rather small groups of prospects that we hand pick and qualify. 

We do everything manually and it ensures that we keep the friendly side of things and connect to the leads to a core level. 

15 - Can I send LinkedIn messages with a free account?

Yes, with a free LinkedIn account, you can send messages to your connections. However, to connect with non-connections, a premium account might be required. 

16 - How successful are LinkedIn lead generation campaigns?

The success of LinkedIn lead generation campaigns depends on a lot of factors such as the relevancy of the target audience, the effectiveness of the messages, and much more. 

At Nerdy Joe, we ensure maximum engagement and conversions for your campaign. As long as you have a product or service that solves a real need and ensure that you have product market-fit, you can rest assured that we will bring you excellent results. 

But if you still haven’t found your product-market-fit, we may not be able to help you. 

17 - How can I make sure recipients open and read my LinkedIn messages?

For most people, the key to getting recipients to open and read your LinkedIn messages lies in crafting compelling messages and providing value. 

At Nerdy Joe, we excel at creating personalized messages that resonate with your potential leads but that’s not always enough. When you’re reaching out with a cold message (meaning the recipient didn’t know before) having the wrong first touch message can cost you the lead.

That’s why we spend a lot of time learning about your ICP and finding the right account for each ICP. Next, we research each individual and collect data points about them that helps us create unique touch points in the messages. The result is a super personalized message that hooks them all the time. 

18 - Is LinkedIn lead generation more effective than cold calling?

Both can be successful, it just depends on your approach and especially your ability to find and reach out to the right people. But to be honest, most people find cold calling to be intrusive. On the other hand, LinkedIn offers a more professional way to reach out to your prospects without bugging them off.  

19 - How do you measure whether a LinkedIn lead generation campaign is effective?

For us, the metric that’s the most indicative of campaign success is conversion. How many leads were we able to bring to your table? How many meetings did we book for you? 

In most cases, this is discussed together with you from the get-go so we can get clear on what makes a good win for your company and that’s the main metric that will explain the campaigns’ success or lack thereof. 

So suppose you’re selling a software product to accountants. In that case, the metrics that make the most sense are the number of sign ups you get to your product, the number of accountants asking for a demo, the number of people wanting to talk your sales or discuss deals — ideally the number of people who show genuine interest and want to get started with you. 

These are the only metrics that make sense to your growth and they can help you understand your investments and what you’re getting out of it (aka your ROI). 

Campaign metrics like reply rate or open rate are good for knowing whether or not we need to improve things or double down on what we’re already doing, but they don’t indicate how successful the campaign is. But unfortunately these are the metrics that most LinkedIn lead generation companies report on. 

At Nerdy Joe, we only measure the effectiveness of your LinkedIn lead generation campaign through key metrics such as the number of leads generated, conversion rate, and ROI. We also provide regular reports to our clients, ensuring they are fully informed about their campaign's performance.

20 - Do I need to outsource my LinkedIn lead generation?


One of the biggest challenges you face as a business owner or salesperson seeking to scale your sales activities is how to establish an effective process for active lead generation and customer acquisition. 

Also, studies show that salespeople spend the most time in their work researching and contacting prospects, with only 12% of their time dedicated to actual talks and closing deals. This is not the most efficient use of their time.

That’s where lead generation agencies come into the picture and it’s the very reason you need to outsource your LinkedIn lead gen service. Services like us take care of these tasks, freeing up your salespeople’s time to concentrate on what they do best: face-to-face selling and closing deals. 

21 - How do I increase my LinkedIn lead generation response rate?

The first step in improving your LinkedIn lead generation response rate is understanding why you’re getting a low response rate in the first place. The reason for this is because a low response rate could mean a lot of things. It could mean that:

  • You’re reaching out to the wrong people,
  • Your profile isn’t convincing enough,
  • The message isn’t compelling enough,
  • The people prefer doing business on another channel,
  • You’re offer isn’t attractive enough,
  • Etc.

That’s why at Nerdy Joe we work on split testing several offers, different messaging styles, trying other channels and much more. Our goal is to find the go-to market strategy that works best for your business and the target audience. From there, it gets easier and we get predictable results.
