A LinkedIn Suggestion, Or Two
Having trouble figuring out how to “approach” more of your connections, or get a conversation started with them? Here’s a cool email that you can send to your contacts through LinkedIn to spur some good conversation, and the chance to “get to know” some of the people you are connected to…
Notice this note asks the connection how YOU can help THEM….a better strategy than saying – “hey can you send me some leads?”
Read carefully and change the parts that need to be changed to reflect you and your business, don’t just blindly copy and paste.
Dear Linked In Connection:
We are LinkedIn and connected….now what?
It occured to me that having you as a connection is a great thing – but how much do I really know about you? Have we connected recently, has there been a change in our position – a promotion maybe? Has your company changed/enhanced its product/service offering, or is there something fabulous that you are doing that I might be unaware of.
Yes, this fancy connection tool only works if we use it properly. I would like to hear what’s going on with you, who your ideal client is, and if there is a way I can be of assistance.
As a reminder, I spend my days helping families navigate the often overwhelming maze of (senior housing and/ or home care) choices available across the country and providing recommendations to those and any number of other senior-related providers.
Drop me a line, give me a call….let’s give this a whirl! PS…photos of new babies, b-days, weddings, etc…well, share those too.
