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.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

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

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. 

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.
