Want to make it impossible for someone to reject your connection request?

Here is one easy yet overlooked tip to get anyone’s attention on LinkedIn, making it impossible for them to ignore you…

Like and leave meaningful comments on their posts.

Then, mention their content in the connection request.

It’s so simple, yet most people don’t do this.

Why? Because it takes time and effort.

Quick tip:

Engage with their content BEFORE you send a connection request. Do this for at least 2 posts.

Wait a few days, or a week, then send a connection request with a custom message that mentions one of their posts that you engaged with.

It can be a quick message like this example.

If you’re already connected with someone and you want to get a response, engage with their content first BEFORE sending.

If you’ve already sent a message and haven’t heard back, comment on their posts, then send a follow-up message mentioning a post you commented on.

What you do from there is up to you, but this should get you in the door.

P.S. A meaningful comment = at least 4 lines of content (on mobile).

“Great post!” doesn’t cut it.

Put forth some effort. It will pay off.
