Maintain and Strengthen Your LinkedIn Connections with Customized Greetings
LinkedIn provides us with tools such as default greetings to make it easier for us to establish connections. But simply sending the given templates is rather ineffective, and a simple customization can take you a long way.
As shown in the image below, LinkedIn provides ‘ways to keep in touch’ which you can send to your business friends and maintain professional relationships.
However, sending the sample texts as they are often backfire for simple reasons.
See if you can spot the problem in the image below:
In the image above we see half a dozen messages that say exactly the same thing. Sending the default greetings that LinkedIn provides to other professionals on their anniversaries is only as good as not sending them anything, or worse.
To establish good connections and benefit from professional networking services one must at least think twice about sending templates or automated texts. Adding the person’s name to a template, for example, is often more than enough. It only takes a minute to customize default greetings and the receiver will appreciate it.
