What’s the best way to respond to a targeted lead that just accepted your connection request on LinkedIn?
I recently asked this question in a poll.
Here are the results:
57% of you answered – Ask a question
25% of you answered – Share info about yourself
13% of you answered – Non-salesy voice message
And 5% of you answered – Pitch your product/service
Are any of these results surprising to you?
A few interesting things I noticed from the comments:
1. People have very different opinions on voice messages.
Some people love them, other people are annoyed by them.
2. A few people mentioned they prefer sending video messages.
3. People are still not 100% sure how they should be replying to new messages. Do they bring up their services/products? Or do they not?
Do they ask a question? Do they call something out from their profile?
There are so many different ways to approach this, which makes this a never-ending, always-evolving discussion.
