Getting engagement with new connections on LinkedIn is as simple as sending a thank you message…and even smarter: automate as much of it as you can.
Whenever you have a recurring problem you need a process…
Processes, systems, automation…these are the solutions to minimising waste, and recurring issues requiring manual workarounds.
Without doubt the Number 1 piece of feedback I get each week is “thanks so much for the thank you message” from new Linkedin connections….and we start conversations that lead in all sorts of interesting directions. It has been such a good contributor to creating new business opportunities over the years that I decided to “automate” this step. Now of course by producing a quick tips video about it I no longer have to explain it one-to-one to the countless people who ask how I automate it – which should save me hours of typing each year!
Spoiler: You cannot actually automate the message function on Linkedin as such – which sucks really. Linkedin is a fabulous business networking tool, but there are some distinct limitations in the engagement functionality. But it is always possible to innovate and get creative when you are faced with a recurring problem, so here was my solution. It is just 3 simple steps which take perhaps 20 seconds as I explain in the video.
