You’ve connected on LinkedIn . . . Now what?

What do you say and when should you say it?

Oh, and for the gold star, how do you nurture that “connection” into a full fledged client?

The short answer is that you need to create a communication plan;

Right from the word “Hello”

I have 10 templates for you to help you build a much stronger network.

And the great news is that, they’re part of a LinkedIn plan, that takes you from that moment you connect, to that moment when they become your client.

I’m going to show you:

  • What to say and do, from the moment, you connect with someone. And I’m going to give you all 10 of the templates that I’ve been using!
  • How to position yourself as an expert without coming across like a tool. You’re welcome!
  • How to provide value WITHOUT conditioning a bunch of freeloaders who love to “friendzone” you! Another lesson that I learned the hard way!
  • How to create a referral machine . . .Even with people who’ve never bought from you!
  • How to IMMEDIATELY increase your phone appointments right from your LinkedIn network.
  • How to use LinkedIn Publisher to create MORE opportunities even if you have no clue what to write about.
  • How to dramatically increase your response rates via LinkedIn.
  • How to approach someone without coming across as salesy.
  • How to do this all on a tight schedule (I mean, I’m sure you don’t have all day to play around on LinkedIn, right?

Barring any “Buy from me” messages on LinkedIn, what typically happens after you accept someone’s invitation to connect?

Nothing, right?

Well that’s just silly!

Why invite someone to connect and never say a word to them?

“But Paul, I don’t know what to say!”

How about “Thank you” as in . . .

“Thank you for the invite Jennifer” or

“Thanks for accepting my invite Todd”

This one, simple step, separates you from all those who DON’T interact and;

It sets the tone for a more SOCIAL relationship.

Now, if you happen to receive something like this after you connect with someone (and I really shouldn’t have to tell a grown up this) . . .

Respond

And please don’t confuse using the thumbs up icon as a real response.

There’s nothing SOCIAL about ignoring your network!

The second thing you should do (in that same “Thank you” email) is conclude that email with a question.

Why?

Because questions invite dialogue

Dialogue breaks down barriers and creates comfort and familiarity.

Comfort and familiarity makes it easier for people to buy from you and/or refer you!

Certainly more than when you did absolutely nothing after “connecting”, right?

There are actually 2 other things you should do IMMEDIATELY after connecting on LinkedIn but;

You’ll have to join us for our How To Generate MORE Leads VIA LinkedIn webinar on October 5th.

Image result for the worst

You’d probably think that the worst thing you can do after connecting on LinkedIn is launching into a pitch, right?

There’s actually something more dangerous and actually more prevalent;

Connecting and then doing nothing!

And that, ladies and gentlemen is what the vast majority of people do on LinkedIn;

Connect and then focus their time posting sh*t instead of communicating with their network.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with posting stuff but riddle me this;

How many people in your network have ever made ANY attempt to communicate with you once you agreed to connect?

So as much as I despise the person who immediately launches into a pitch;

At least they’re making an attempt to do something with their network.

Here’s a question you should be able to answer in your sleep;

What is my communication plan from the moment someone connects with me on LinkedIn?

The average person will avoid that question because they have NOTHING, NADA, ZIP when it comes to a communication plan.

So they don’t do anything and then write LinkedIn off as a waste of time.

Or they don’t do anything and just putter along thinking all they have to do is post stuff.

Either way;

Money is being left on the table!

On October 5th, at 11:30 am EST, I’m going to take you behind the scenes and show you how I do it,

And I’m going to offer it free of “fluff”, stupid training acronyms or philosophical nonsense.

Just the tactics!

I’m going to show you:

  • What to say and do, from the moment, you connect with someone. And I’m going to give you all 10 of the templates that I’ve been using!
  • How to position yourself as an expert without coming across like a tool. You’re welcome!
  • How to provide value WITHOUT conditioning a bunch of freeloaders who love to “friendzone” you! Another lesson that I learned the hard way!
  • How to create a referral machine . . .Even with people who’ve never bought from you!
  • How to IMMEDIATELY increase your phone appointments right from your LinkedIn network.
  • How to use LinkedIn Publisher to create MORE opportunities even if you have no clue what to write about.
  • How to dramatically increase your response rates via LinkedIn.
  • How to approach someone without coming across as salesy.
  • How to do this all on a tight schedule (I mean, I’m sure you don’t have all day to play around on LinkedIn, right?

And I ABSOLUTELY WON’T show you a damn thing about improving your LinkedIn profile.

Why?

Because I’ll leave that for every other “Expert” to beat to death.

Personally, I think we should focus our efforts on actually being SOCIAL on a social network. The mechanics of LinkedIn really need to take a back seat to the SOCIAL part!

What do you do once you connect with someone on LinkedIn?

There are two radical extremes when it comes to LinkedIn and quite frankly, they both suck!

Either you do absolutely nothing (and hope somehow, the world will beat a path to your door) or;

You launch, immediately into a sales pitch and piss off your new connection.

Sadly, I fell into the first category back in 2008 and even quit LinkedIn because I thought it was a waste of time!

Truth be told, I didn’t know what the heck to do once I connected with someone, so I just did nothing.

Meanwhile, I missed out on opportunities until I decided to change a few things.

Through trial and error (mostly error back then) I created a communication plan that guided me from the moment I connected with someone to the moment I did something super important;

Transition that “connection” off of my computer screen and into an actual conversation/meeting.

Back in those days, I was building my network with the sole purpose of having more options “just in case”.

I never thought I would actually need my network because at the time, I was a Vice President for a Billion dollar a year company.

Then Life Threw Me A Left Hook

In December 2010, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer (and no, I’m not trying to make a sympathy sale here, she’s actually been completely cured since 2011),

We were fortunate, having caught it at a “Stage 0”. So one outpatient surgery, and 6 weeks of radiation later, we put that bullsh*t behind us!

But . . .

It served as a gentle reminder for me that life is short and;

Perhaps I needed to stop saying “Someday” when it came to pursuing my dream of starting a business.

So I put in my notice, hung out my shingle but;

I did so with the LinkedIn connections I had been nurturing.

Within 30 days, I landed 45 new clients as a direct result of my LinkedIn efforts.

Since then, I have consistently brought in 3-5 new clients and hundreds of new (paying) webinar participants each month.

Do you want to know the best part?

I access high level decision makers, EVERYDAY, without getting stopped by a gatekeeper.

Why?

Because there AREN’T any on LinkedIn!

On October 5th, at 11:30 am EST, I’m going to take you behind the scenes and show you how I do it,

And I’m going to offer it free of “fluff”, stupid training acronyms or philosophical nonsense.

Just the tactics!
