It’s no doubt you’re being very choosy about who you are sending your 100 invites a week to, now that LinkedIn has imposed strict limitations.
The absolute worst thing you can do when one of them connects is send them the next great American novel.
If you are like me, the last thing you want on LinkedIn is for someone to send you long, boring message begging you to buy from them right now.
You know the message I’m talking about. The best examples are the web designer messages. No offense to web designers, but some of you need to step up your game.
These are the messages that start out with several paragraphs of nothing, then links to their client websites, then the I work for $25 sentence and then topping it off with an ultra weak close.
Instead try this message:
Hi (Their First Name),
Thank you so much for connecting. I was wondering, if I could (Insert Irresistible Offer) would that be worth a quick chat on your part?
That’s all you have to do. What I have found is that those who are going to set an appointment with you, will usually do so either right away, or within a day or two of receiving this message.
Even with the new limitations, most of my appointments each week come from this exact message.
