Power of Linkedin

to please add a note when you send a connection request to someone and mention in that Note what Value are you looking to add by connecting with that person. Even if there are mutual connections the other person maybe doesn’t know you and it would be beneficial for them to understand how by connecting with you adds value. Please don’t send a connection request just for the sake of sending a request, Linkedin also has a follow option, you can just follow the person you wish. Linkedin is a very powerful tool if used right. Having been with Linkedin Since 2006 and a regular user since 2011, I have been very succesful in sales thanks to understanding the power of #Linkedin.

As with any platform there are best practises and mediocre to bad ones, After being a power user I have discovered 9 Key things that have made a lot of difference in the results that i have gotten and wanted to share these with those of you who want to work smart and get the advantage what every basic linkedin account has to offer. (Imagine if you upgraded to a Premium account you can get more access, but Free Account works fine as well) 

The 9 tips while explaing took a slighly longish route and became more like a guide so I would be linking to it here.

The article covers the following Points

Tip 01: Profile Picture: Why you need to give attention to this and how many people get this wrong.

Tip 02: Background Photo / Banner Picture. This is a game changer but people don’t use it right.

Tip 03: Headline: Make or Break thing. Can help you increase your conversions like crazy.

Tip 04: About Section: Spell it out right and connect with your Audience

Tip 05: Articles and Posts: Why you should use them

Tip 06: Have Respect and follow a Protocol: This is what majority of Sales people get wrong.

Tip 07: How to send a connection request (You may be surprised how many people get this one wrong)

Tip 08: Quality over Quantity There is no safety in numbers, having 100 Solid connections is better than 10000 who you don’t even know.

Tip 09: Why you should not use Automated softwares. Easiest way to get suspended and lose access to your account

and a few other findings I had as to what converts and what doesnt. Since it became an 8 page Guide I am posting a link to the same here

My humble request to all Linkedin users please add a note when you send a connection request to someone and mention in that Note what Value are you looking to add by connecting with that person. Even if there are mutual connections the other person maybe doesn’t know you and it would be beneficial for them to understand how by connecting with you adds value. Please don’t send a connection request just for the sake of sending a request, Linkedin also has a follow option, you can just follow the person you wish. If you cannot add any Value to your connection there is no point of connecting because you cant get anything if you have nothing to give.
