Use the LinkedIn Messenger to start a conversation on LinkedIn. It’s up to you to take the first step to building a relationship on LinkedIn…
Hi there, Sarah Santacroce with tip number eight of the ten tip video series on How to Humanize Your LinkedIn Presence. Tip number eight, is about starting the conversation. Being the first to start a relationship on LinkedIn. Sometimes it takes a little courage because maybe you just added a new contact, and even though you have customized the invitation, they don’t get back to you. It’s not like they say, “Hey, thanks for connecting with me” Maybe it’s up to you to make that first step and you have this great LinkedIn messenger tool that is much improved compared to the previous version. It makes the human contact much easier because you don’t have to send a stiff email that says, “Dear Mr. Blah, blah, blah.” You can just say, “Hey, thanks so much for connecting. I’m really looking forward to getting to know you better.” It’s up to you sometimes to show what’s possible on LinkedIn.
Start a conversation on LinkedIn
Some people are still used to the stiffy corporate LinkedIn way, so this video is all about making the first step. I encourage you to sometimes make the first step and start a conversation on LinkedIn to make these human relationships possible.
