Linkedin Lurkers Exist!

 

Linkedin lurkers exist so how can you reach them?

You already have.  How can you get them to comment?

Heres a couple ways:

  1. Ask some questions
  2. Post articles and use 2 to 3 hashtags.
  3. Use some emojis every once in a while.

Comments are important Why?

 LinkedIn’s algorithm some how sees a posts performance in what I call the magic hour.  If your post receives no comments, reactions or shares in the first 60 minutes, they will likely replace your post with a better performing post in the feed everytime.

The "S" word on Linkedin

 

What is the "S" word on LInkedin?  S stands for Spam.  Don't be that person that spam others.  This morning I got a connection request from someone who wanted to connect with me.  And their note said "I will do Facebook marketing, fix ad account issues and run conversion ad. If you want to hire a freelancer then feel free to knock me at". Obviously this person did not even look to see what I do for living.  This is just one example of what not to do.

Please get to know someone before you invite them to buy something.

Are Linkedin Members Replying to your Connection Requests?

 

Have you ever received a message from someone you didn't know? 

Have you ever got this message: "Id like to add you to my professional network."

So how do you generate interest with people who you don’t know so they will connect with you.  Here is what I suggest.

Include a question at the end of your message that will give the perspective connection a reason to respond.  Ask them something that only someone in their position would know. People love being helpful, so asking a prospect for their insight or expertise on a certain topic might make them more inclined to respond. Another is how you found their profile.

Things to consider when writing a connection request. 

Be courteous & professional
Be specific. Get right to the point
Personalize it.
Complement them on something.

Here is an Example.
Hi Chris, I came across your profile after seeing your post about “Benefits Of Reading Daily. Interesting stuff…I so enjoy reading your...
