My friend Linkedin is one of those who love it or don’t understand it. However, that is like a lot of platforms. Just because people are on them and using them doesn’t mean they are using those well either.
LinkedIn requires you to show up at least once a week.
Your LinkedIn profile can works for you 24 hours a day if you put it to work and most people don’t even have it filled out.
People seem to spend the first few years in their business ‘guessing’ how things should work. The ones who don’t get discouraged and quit will start looking for someone to help them.
They will use different strategies until they get a trickle of results so they stay in that lane longer than they need too.
It is incredibly slow…
It is draining…
It will make you want to pull your hair out!
LinkedIn Etiquette: 10 Things You Must Do
- Personalize Connection Requests
- Be Human – Send a Welcome/Thank You Message
- Respond to your messages
- Have a profile headshot not a picture sitting on your couch
- Post content regularly
- Personalize Recommendation Requests and messages
- Nurture your relationships
- Stay in front of your connections
- LinkedIn is not Facebook
- Introduce People and network
Authentically personalize every single connection request you make.
I know that doesn’t sound groundbreaking, but practically NO ONE on LinkedIn does this, and it’s killing relationships before they even get started.
You see, LinkedIn is just like real-life – people are guarded when dealing with strangers. Their guard is up and they can smell the desperate stench of an unsolicited pitch from a mile away.
Connecting and building proper relationships hinges entirely on the first impression you make.
If you introduce and establish yourself as not being like the majority of needy people on LinkedIn…
Prove that you’re someone who has taken the time to research who they’re talking to…
And reach out with a legitimate and valuable reason for connecting…
You’ll quickly see your number of accepted connection requests skyrocket!
And once you’re in with people you have the opportunity to build real and trusting business relationships.
