Kim Peterson, CEO CommonSenseHealth.org
We all know that LinkedIn is a unique and powerful tool which helps us accomplish any number of things with regard to business building, improvement, and overall success.
If you keep these simple, easy to follow DOs and DON’Ts in mind, you will be putting yourself out there in a way that will help you be the most productive and the least annoying as possible.
And let’s face it...we are all busy...so adhere to these and help us all cut through the clutter and get things done!
DON’T Ask to connect with a ton of random people in order to increase your number of connections. There is NO point to this. It’s a massive time suck for all involved. Don’t do it.
DON’T Ask to connect with someone in order to send them a generic email talking about your amazing product or service. No need to elaborate.
DON’T post sexy, racy or selfie updates. PLEASE, people! Can there be ONE PLACE online where massive self-absorption can take a back seat? Even if that pic of you with your skin-tight, red dress gets a zillion likes ... what exactly are you actually accomplishing? Step up. You can do better.
DON’T steal someone else’s post and claim it as your own. Tacky. Cheap. Unprofessional. Sharing is awesome...stealing creates bad karma.
DO provide value! What industry are you in? What is some helpful, informative information you could share? Do that.
DO reach out to people whom you’d like to build relationships with, can add value to or could learn from.
DO commit to consistency. Make a gameplan to check in daily. If you are building a business, your brand, looking for new clients etc., I recommend using Sales Navigator.
Yes, there is a cost associated with it, as there is for all things of value, but it’s a pretty powerful way to connect with others who are serious about building, growing and learning, as you are, Sales Navigator is just a great tool to find people that you otherwise would not cross paths with.
DO look at how you reach out on LinkedIn very similarly to how you would in person. Relationships and trust take time. Don’t expect someone you just met to ask you to marry them on the first date. The beautiful thing about LinkedIn is that your experience and contributions are transparent. Your history and skills are there for all the world to see. Make sure you are presenting yourself and acting in a way that makes a good, first impression.
