Grow your LinkedIn network

 

Here are a few strategies and tips to grow your network.

 

Before you start:

 

  • You have a huge network ready to help you be successful. First GetStarted to learn who to invite and develop a strategy for using LinkedIn.
  • If you use Microsoft Outlook, consider installing the LinkedIn Outlook Toolbar.
  • If you use other email, contact, or CRM software or have address lists in file form, review how to add those contacts to LinkedIn.

 

Are you focusing on a Quantity connection strategy? If so:

 

Get listed on and use http://MyLink500.com !

  • Add your listing with your actual number of connections.
  • Get free promotion for you and your business with a listing.
  • Invite other members to send you a LinkedIn invitation..
  • Specify precisely how closed or open your networking is.
  • Get a list of top networkers you can invite now!

 

Now find those contacts.

  • Regularly import your Outlook contacts or other files containing your address book and emails.
  • Import lists of small groups that you belong too. This can include alumni, church members, professional groups, interest groups, mutual friends, etc.
  • Contact and connect to anchors. These can be the top and well-connected people and executives in your industry and area of expertise area.
  • Join the Lions, a group specifically formed to promote open networking. Check the database and email postings for people who want to network, as well as to list yourself and invite invitations.
  • Participate in other DiscussionGroups where you can make new contacts or find members open to networking.
  • Invite people who publicize their email address in their profile. This normally, but not always, indicates they are open to invitations.
  • Regularly send professional Introductions to people of interest and connect with them if they accept.

 

Make yourself easy to find.

  • Post a link to your LinkedIn profile in your email signature, forum postings, web site, and any materials seen by other people.
