A Super Simple Way To Set An Appointment With Someone In Your LinkedIn Network

by Paul Castain on February 13, 2017

Working in the ofiice

For 7 years now, I’ve been using a really simple email template that has consistently generated a minimum of 3 extra phone appointments each week.

Before I give you the link to download it for FREE, it’s important to know how to use it. as well as the hidden benefits you’re going to get.

As far as How to use it . . .

1) Go into your list of LinkedIn connections and start alphabetically and pick at least 3 people you HAVEN’T spoken with yet.

2) Send them the email I’m going to share with you today.

3) Once you get them on the phone, DON’T launch into a sales pitch. Instead, show a genuine interest in getting to know the other person.

4) At the end of the call, ask them if there is anyone you should be on the look out for, that they’d be interested in connecting with.

5) Ask them who they know who might be able to utilize your product or service.

That’s it! Short, simple and REALLY effective!


First, you’re doing something that nobody does on LinkedIn . . . Getting to know each other via the ancient art of a phone call.

Second, you are finding out how you can help them; never a bad thing!

Third, you have a way of asking for a referral WITHOUT the conversation getting weird or salesy and;

You’ve created a relationship where its much easier to ask each other for help.


What if you’re doing your pre call planning research and you discover that Jane Jones happens to be connected with Bob Smith (someone you’ve spoken with and have introduced to others). Now you can reach out to Bob and ask him if he can introduce you to Jane.

Now unless Bob is a jerk, I’m thinking his warm intro is going to be much better than that cold call you were about to make, no?

So here’s that Email Template That Generates At Least 3 Extra Phone Appointments Each Week
