LinkedIn - Introduction requests

499 views

Published on

Introductions let you contact members in your extended network through the people you know.

If you want to contact someone who is two or three degrees away from you; you can request an introduction through one of your connections.

Your connection will, in turn, decide whether to forward your message on to the desired recipient (if in your 2nd degree network) or on to a shared connection (if in your 3rd degree network).

Sending Introduction Requests is another very effective strategy to continue to grow your network!

  5. 5. 6www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® LinkedIn Introductions are an integral part of the social networking platform. LinkedIn has given you the ability to search for someone and see how they are connected to you, and it is with this information that you can request an Introduction from your connection just as you would request a referral from a friend in real life. Very few people however actually ask for an Introduction on LinkedIn in the same manner that they ask for an introduction in a real-life. Make sure that each Introduction is not only diplomatic and tactful but it also has a Personal Touch. You need to remember that there are three (3) people involved in the introduction, and this action will impact on all of the participants’ names and reputation. You only have one chance so get it right! Overview
  6. 6. 7www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® # 1 Clear Message You need to be able to articulate your message in a few short paragraphs. Demonstrate how you can be useful, and why it is important to them for you to connect. # 2 WIIFM – What’s In It For Me? This is the oldest concept in sales and marketing, yet very few people use it effectively. When writing the note to the person you’d like to be introduced to, understand that the person receiving your note is thinking – “What’s in it for me?” # 3 Don’t SELL In The Introduction Request Before you can sell anything, there needs to be an element of trust and at this stage of the proceedings, there is NO trust. # 4 Think Of The Person Making The Intro: • Will they be comfortable with your language, your approach, and the relevance of your note? • Is there a chance of embarrassment? • What will happen if you don’t deliver? • What will be the implication on their friendship? # 5 Your Credentials Keep in mind that once your introduction request has been forwarded, the person you’ve approached will immediately check your profile. Make sure your profile is 100% complete, and it showcases who you are, professionally. Recommendations are important, as they will tell people reading your profile, not just what you think of yourself, but also how others think of you! # 6 Follow Up! So How Do You Do It Effectively?
  7. 7. 8www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® If you don't know someone's email address and you were not a colleague or classmate in the past, then you can contact LinkedIn members using an Introduction or InMail. Unlike InMails, Introductions are FREE to all users! “If you want to contact someone who is either two (2) or three (3) degrees away from you, you can request an introduction through one of your connections.“ You won't however become 1st degree connections when you your Introductions are successfully forwarded unless one of you invites the other to connect and the request is accepted. InMails extend your reach even further and enable you to contact any LinkedIn member directly. InMails are basically private messages that enable you to contact or be directly contacted by another LinkedIn user, while still protecting the recipient's privacy. With InMails, you also won't become 1st degree connections unless one of you invites the other to connect and the request is accepted. InMail is a paid feature or part of a premium account. Note: You can always send a standard invitation to someone to connect if you know their email address! What is the difference between Introductions & InMails?

  9. 9. 10www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® You can use Introductions on a casual / as needed basis or you can adopt a more systematic approach over time to rapidly grow your network. To do this, you first need to carry out a series of Advanced People Searches that will help you identify potential connections who are either two (2) or three (3) degrees away from you. Once you have printed all the results; you will need to keep them in a safe place as you will ONLY be able to send a limited number (Section 3: Introduction Requests – Facts & Figures) of Invitation Requests at a time dependant on your type of LinkedIn Account. The key to growing your network is planning & research! Introduction
  10. 10. 11www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Go to the home page of the LinkedIn website and Sign in using your account details: Type your Email Address into this box: Type your Password into this box: Planning & Research

Make sure that you are in the Advanced People Search tab.
  13. 13. 14www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® You need to choose very broad key words for each Title to capture the maximum number of Search Results to pick your Introduction Request targets from.

Example: Title – Selecting Key Words Associate Director, Associate Vice President, Audio Visual Sales Manager, Australian General Business Software Sales Manager, Business Director, Australia CEO, CEO & Director, Company Director, Channel Sales Manager, Chief Executive Officer, Client Director , Client Director - Southern Region, Commercial Manager - AsiaPac, Consulting Director, Corporate Sales Manager, Director , Director - Sales and Customer Experience, Director & Co-Founder, Director & Principal, Director | Corporate Services, Director Business Development , Director of Marketing & Sales, Director of Sales, Director of Sales - Asia Pacific, Director of Sales & Marketing, Director Professional Services and Product Development, Director Sales, Australia and New Zealand, Director Strategic Accounts, Director Strategic Programs & Marketing, Director, Corporate Engagement & Human Capital, Director, Sales & Marketing, Enterprise Sales Manager, Executive Director, Field Sales Manager, Founder, Founder & CEO, Founder / Director, Founder and Managing Director, Founding President, General Manager - Regional Sales VIC/SA, General Manager and VP of Software Asia , General Manager Sales, General Manager, Victorian Sales, Global Head of Sales & Marketing, Global Sales Operations Manager , Global Services Director, Group Sales & Marketing Manager, Head of Sales/Branch Manager Victoria, Manager, Sales Manager, Tech Sales, Business Solutions, Managing Director, Managing, Director Aust/NZ, MD, National Sales and Marketing Manager, National Sales Manager, Owner, Owner and Director, Owner and Principal Consultant, Portfolio Sales Manager, President , Regional Director APAC, Regional President - Asia Pacific, Regional Sales Director, Regional Sales Manager Regional Sales Manager ANZ, Sales & Marketing Manager, Sales & Strategy Manager, Sales and Marketing Director , Sales Director, Sales Manager, Sales Manager - Australia, New Zealand, Sales Manager ANZ, Sales Manager Australia & New Zealand , Sales Manager, Australia, Sales Manager, Southern Region, Sales Manager/Account Director, Sales Operations Manager , Sales Team Manager - Online Marketing , Senior Regional Sales Director - Financial Services, Senior Vice President Sales Australia & New Zealand, Services Sales Manager, Enterprise and Public Sector, SMB Sales Manager, Australasia & South Africa, Southern Commercial Sales Manager, Southern Region Sales Manager, Southern Region Sales Manager Enterprise & Financial Services  Sales Manager  Director  CEO  President One or more of the four (4) key words or Titles below covers everyone of the Titles above:

  22. 22. INTRODUCTION REQUESTS - FACTS & FIGURES Section 3 23www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists®
  23. 23. 24www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® The following points will give you a better understanding of LinkedIn Introductions: 1. All LinkedIn members have introductions they can request 2. Basic (or Free) Account = 5 per month 3. Premium Accounts = 15, 25, 35 or 50 outstanding 4. Introductions expire after 6 months if the receiver doesn't respond 5. Once the member accepts your introduction you can exchange information and do business 6. You won't become 1st degree connections unless one of you invites the other to connect and the request is accepted Note: LinkedIn recommends that you only connect with contacts you know and trust. Introduction Requests – Facts & Figures
  24. 24. 25www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Unlike Basic (or Free) Accounts which have a total monthly allocation of Introductions, Premium Accounts have a maximum number of outstanding Introductions that you can have in play. Once you send your full allocation of Introductions; you either have to: (i) Wait 6 months for them to expire or; (ii) Withdraw any unwanted outstanding Introductions before you can send anymore! Refer to Section 5, Maintenance & Clean-Up for details of how to withdraw Introductions. 52lists strongly encourages ALL of our Users to upgrade their LinkedIn account to one of the Premium Accounts offered by LinkedIn to take full advantage of the Introductions feature. Monthly v Outstanding
  25. 25. SENDING INTRODUCTION REQUESTS Section 4 26www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists®
  26. 26. 27www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® The purpose of sending Introductions is to get introduced to 2nd and / or 3rd level contacts who are not already part of your current network of 1st level LinkedIn connections. “Every 2nd or 3rd level contact that accepts an invitation will become a 1st level contact!” Because you are ONLY able to send a limited number (Section 3: Introduction Requests – Facts & Figures) of Introductions at a time it is important that you use them wisely. Until a 1st level contact that you ask to assist you takes action by either forwarding the Introduction request or rejecting it – LinkedIn will not allow you to send that Introduction to someone else. Example: You are a Premium LinkedIn Account holder allocated 35 outstanding Introductions If you send 10 Introductions and no one either forwards or rejects them and you don’t withdraw them (See Section 5: Maintenance & Clean-Up) then you would only have 25 available to send . You need to be proactive and NOT wait six (6) months for outstanding Introductions to expire. Note: Your acceptance rate will be much higher if you personalise your Introduction messages . Introduction
  27. 27. 28www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Select the Home search page by left clicking your mouse. Make sure that People is selected in the drop down search menu box: Type in the full name of the 1st person to send the Introduction to from your multiple pages of printed contacts: Left click using your mouse on the Magnify Glass icon to START the 1st individual search:
  28. 28. 29www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® To narrow the number of search results, start typing “Melbourne Area, Australia” LinkedIn will auto complete the operation for you. IMPORTANT! Be sure to select “Melbourne Area, Australia” and NOT “Melbourne Florida, Area” which is the USA.
  29. 29. 30www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Hover your mouse over the small drop down menu icon next to the connect button The next step of the process involves clicking on the Connect icon of each of the 2nd or 3rd level search results. Ignore the 1st level results as they are already a part of our network. Also ignore Group ones. Left click on the Get Introduced menu item:
  30. 30. 31www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Now you are ready to get introduced to Fraser Hodgson via one of your current 1st Level connections … Left click on the 1st level contact at the TOP of the list with the HIGHEST # of Shared Connections that can help you get introduced to the contact (Fraser Hodgson)
  31. 31. 32www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Cut & Paste the Subject from the .txt file on the following slide into each request
  32. 32. 33www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® A smart way to save time when you are sending Introduction Request messages is to use Google Docs, Notepad, OneNote or Microsoft Word to create MASTER templates. All you then need to do then is CUT & PASTE your preferred template into the Introduction Request message field and personalise it as needed: Tips
  33. 33. 34www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Cut & Paste the BODY from the .txt file on the following slide into each Introduction Request. Personalise each message by using the FIRST name only of the 1st level contact who is helping you get introduced. Personalise each message by using the FIRST & LAST name of the contact you are trying to get introduced too. Left click Send Request!
  34. 34. 35www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® The following message or similar should be displayed. You can check if it worked for the first couple of times by looking in the Sent Messages folder below: In Progress / Waiting for Stephen to respond
  35. 35. 36www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® Click on the Home icon to find the next contact from the printed search results and continue the process one by one up to the maximum number of Introduction Requests you can send. Note: Refer to Section 3: “Introduction Requests – Facts & Figures” for details on the maximum number of Introduction Requests you can send.
  36. 36. 37www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® TIP Some search results don’t include a name and are private. They are of little or no use so ignore them! These two (2) are OK!
  37. 37. 38www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® TIP As you do searches 2, 3, 4 for a specific Title … You often ONLY need to change the Industry.

  39. 39. MAINTENANCE & CLEAN-UP Section 5 40www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists®
  40. 40. 41www.52lists.com © 2012 All rights reserved / 52lists® As explained in Section 3: Introduction Requests – Facts & Figures, LinkedIn allows Premium Account holders to have a maximum number of outstanding or un-answered Introductions Requests in their account at a time. The only way to redeem these Introductions is to withdraw them manually one-by-one. This is a fairly simple task to do as explained in the following slides: The vast majority of contacts that you send Introductions too will either accept and / or respond to them in less than a week so there is NO issue in withdrawing ALL Introductions from the previous week. If you are a Premium Account holder, you should perform this Maintenance & Clean-Up task on a weekly basis so you can continue to send Introductions and make the most of your Introduction allowances. It should only take you 5 to 10 minutes a week. Maintenance & Clean-Up
