About the Episode:

You know here at Uplevel Media, we strive to provide a system to help you find true, authentic connections through relationship based marketing. The center of that always is in LinkedIn, however you can’t implement a relationship based marketing system, if you’re spamming your LinkedIn network!


Are you spamming your LinkedIn network?


There are two types of support out there when it comes to LinkedIn marketing. For example, there are…


  1. True LinkedIn Experts
    1. These are your people like me who teach, true authentic relationship building in which you build real connections one at a time. These lead to actually converting your network into clients.
  2. Spinners
    1. Those who come into the market, provide 3rdparty tools and have your connections automated. This leads to growing your network at such a rapid pace to the point where you never know who these people are and if they’re even going to buy from your business.


So chances are, if you’re not getting real LinkedIn support or if you don’t know who have your connections are… you’re spamming your LinkedIn network.


So how can you fix it?


Focus on the connection piece


Like I mention in episode 80 of my Good Girls Get Rich podcast, start connecting with people on a microlevel. This means coming up with targeted searches for those you really want to connect and have a relationship with.


This way, once you connect, you already have a conversation starter for them and can personalize your outreach based on what you know about them.


Keep the conversation going


The best way to leverage your LinkedIn network is to keep the conversation going. You never want to disappear for days at a time because that will make them think you’re not serious, or they’ll lose interest in you.


Make your conversations personal. Chances are you’ll have something in common to talk about, you’ll want to keep connecting with them daily, and you’ll be that much quicker to getting them on the phone.
