Learn About Your Targets

You have two avenues to understand your possible connections— their profile and their activity.

  • Take the time to read their profile, look for the things they talk about, the problems they solve and the things that interest them. This information will be critical in starting up a conversation.
  • If you look on anyone’s profile, you’ll see the activity section. Focus on the articles and posts tabs. If you can find articles they are the best place to start. This shows the person has put time and effort into this subject, so they will really appreciate anyone that comments on them.

Build Rapport With Them

  1. DON’T send them a generic sales message as soon as you connect. It doesn’t work, it prevents long-term engagement and gets you a bad reputation.
  2. Talk to them.. Ask how they are. Comment on something you have seen that would be relevant to them.
  3. Offer to help. Don’t sell, offer free advice or value-added content. 
  4. Drip feed in what you do, learn about their success and pains and as you understand the areas you can help them with, start talking about them. Focus on the customer pains. No one cares about what your product does or what you offer, they care about themselves.

Engage With Them

Start going through their activity and find appropriate posts to comment on. Your comments need to be good. No ‘awesome!’ or ‘thanks’ or ‘interesting’. You need to express an opinion and give them a chance to respond. 

The goal of commenting is for the person to become aware of you and it needs to be for a good reason. Try and be different but not weird.

Finding Your Targets

Finding Your Targets

You have multiple options for identifying the people you want to connect with on LinkedIn. It could be your CRM, maybe using the search function on LinkedIn or setting up alerts on Google. 

With some of this you’ll have a company name rather than an individual, if that is the case, then search that company on LinkedIn and find the person you need.

You might store these names in a notes tool, in a spreadsheet, or maybe a CRM.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
