Here's how you do it by following these screenshots. You can say something like. "Hi First Name, thanks for visiting my profile! Is there anything we can support you with?"

Very simple. 1. LinkedIn is THE #1 Job Board, hence attracting millions of job seekers and service providers alike 2. LinkedIn has almost a billion professional users (900 million to be exact), and it's adding 3 every second! 3. LinkedIn is using its marketplace platform to cater to 3% of its users who are buying in any industry and at any given time. 4. Easy to grow its marketplace by tapping into its 900 Million user base via events and emails marketing
LinkedIn uses SSI (social selling index) as one of the indicators to match you with inbound leads from the LinkedIn Marketplace! Your SSI score influences your content reach. If your SSI score is: > 90, you'll get 30% more reach 75 to 90, you'll get 20% more reach 60 to 75, you'll get 10% more reach 45 to 60, you will have normal reach < 45, you'll get20% LESS reach Here's how you can increase your SSI today: 1. Adding media & visuals to your LinkedIn profile while using all the sections wisely 2. Getting endorsements, recommendations, and publishing an article 3. Having a high acceptance rate on connection requests 4. Post and Engage Weekly (3x-5x a week) First, click here to see what is your current SSI score.
LinkedIn does not specify the limit, however, it all depends on your acceptance rate and the outstanding pending connection requests you have. To give you an idea, I have over 1500 pending connection requests pending but at the same time, I have close to 40% accept rate. The system has a glitch where it doesn't automatically remove pending connection requests (starting with the oldest), hence I went in and removed them myself. I manually removed over 1k and have about 400 left which are roughly a week old. I noticed that if they don't accept your request by the 5th day or so, they won't so I just remove anything older than a week. Of course there are some laggers who do accept after 7 days. If you do have pending connection requests piling up, don't forget to remove them to avoid getting dinged by LinkedIn! Here's how you do it manually.
LinkedIn has started its marketing firestorm to bring 900 million users onto its 'new' Services Marketplace platform! 😱 Users are beginning to get these kinds of emails from LinkedIn, and they've been rolling it out since March! They're rolling it out in phases! Eventually, over 900 million professional users will visit Services Marketplace to buy. As a vendor, you'd want to be one of the first to take advantage of this enormous opportunity and setup to get matched inbound leads as soon as possible!
This is probably the most important question I get asked all the time. How do I stay safe and avoid LinkedIn jail? Safeguarding your LinkedIn account is paramount so you can continue growing your business; here are some rules to follow: Here are the rules to follow to avoid LinkedIn jail: - Do not log into multiple LinkedIn accounts from one device! In other words, one device is dedicated to one account (Solution: Have different device dedicated to each LinkedIn account) - Do not log into more than one LinkedIn account under one Google Chrome profile (Solution: create one Google Chrome profile for each LinkedIn account) - Do not have your VA log into your LinkedIn account with an IP outside of your country. Always use a VPN if you're leveraging a VA. (Solution: Use Urban VPN (a Chrome app) to log into your home location VPN point before logging into your LinkedIn account) - Do share your LinkedIn password with anyone. (Solution: Use LastPass (Chrome app) to grant access so you have full control) Please comment below if you have any questions or feedback! 😎
