Have you wondered why you may not be connecting as much on LinkedIn as perhaps you should? Here’s some ideas of how you can be better:
Find people to sell to , not take from
first 65 characters of first line under your name- what are you going to do for me?
Make sure first characters count, try not to say “I help” as too many people do that now.
People don’t want to do work with corporate companies now.
One thing you must do is come over like a real person
Selling is not wrong it’s the frequency we do it
Connecting is like a handshake and business card. Mimic what you’d do in the real world on LinkedIn
