Network on LinkedIn, key takeaways
- When cold messaging on LinkedIn, make it personal, use the person’s name or surname. Be polite. Make clear to them you would like to be in their network. Perhaps schedule a zoom call.
- When writing a post, you want interaction in the comments and likes section. Emojis can be used when necessary in this regard. Keep language simple and accessible to all, avoid industry-specific abbreviations.
- Have a professional-looking photo.
- Don’t be vague about what you do or your role in a company.
- Every connection has some value, even if you don’t recognize it immediately.
