Knowing how to connect is important!

LinkedIn Connection Philosophies

By: Bill Yates
marketing firm fort worth texas

I’ve spoken to hundreds of people about their LinkedIn strategies and have realized some great tips and hints on taking full advantage of the website. There is a very wide variety of approaches to marketing your company through social media. The reality is that each of us need to find the specific tools and tricks that will benefit us and our businesses the most. The tactic that I’ve found many people are most passionate about is with whom they will connect. Those who subscribe to the LinkedIn Open Network (LION) philosophy typically will take every connection request that is presented to them. At the same time they seem to be more aggressive than most when it comes to pursuing new connections. A large number of LIONs who have sent me connection requests seem to be more interested in selling their own products than considering any ways to help others with their own businesses. But I guess if it works for them then who am I to question them. On the other end of the spectrum are those LinkedIn members who will not connect with anyone unless they know them personally. They may have had a simple conversation with them at a party or may have conducted business with them years ago but they will not accept a connection request unless there is first hand knowledge of their background and their business. I can understand the merits of both philosophies and respect each side of the coin. If someone’s personal approach to accepting connections works for them then I hope that they stick with it. I’ve come up with my own set of rules in accepting connection requests. My best estimate is that I receive around 20 connection requests each week with many of them coming from complete strangers. Unfortunately I only accept about half of these requests because I follow these rules:
1. If I don’t know them I check to see if they have viewed my profile. If they haven’t even given me the courtesy of reviewing my background I hit the ignore button. If they’re a stranger and they’ve taken a look at my profile I move on…
2. I check to see if they’re a LION. I’m not all that interested in connecting with someone in a far-away land in a completely different industry simply so they can collect friends. I learned early on that within days of accepting a request from a LION stranger I will likely receive an email from them telling me how I can lose weight with the latest diet fad or explaining how their “system” can get me out of debt.
3. If they’ve taken a look at my profile, are within an area of the country in which I’m pursuing business, in my industry, have an interesting background or are obviously an acquaintance, I’ll almost always accept.
4. I review the profile of every connection request that is sent to me and do not send out a request without first learning more about the person.
I would equate my strategy to going to a party or a business mixer.Even though they might
be strangers, most in the room are business professionals with whom I have at least one thing in common. I may not know them now but could be introduced later. LinkedIn allows me to get to know these people before officially meeting them. They read my updates and I read theirs. We learn about one another’s personality, interests and business. If and when the time is right one of us may reach out to the other with an opportunity.
As an example. My friend Jean Robb was a complete stranger when I connected with her on LinkedIn a year or two ago. I don’t remember connecting but I assume that I saw that she is a realtor in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and that she is involved with many charities. For months we were simply in the same room occasionally listening in on one another’s conversations. Last August, out of the blue, I got an email from the stranger Jean inviting me to attend a private suite at a baseball game with about 30 of her friends. Many of of those attending are retired professional athletes who are now involved in similar businesses as mine. When I asked her why she would invite me she explained that she’d read some of my posts on LinkedIn and thought I would fit in well. While attending the event I met some amazing people and I sent follow-up cards to all of them. With two of these people I met at Jean’s event, I maintain a mutually beneficial business relationship. This wouldn’t have happened had I not connected with stranger Jean. BTW – She and I continue contact so if I get the chance to return the favor I hope to do so.

And her LinkedIn profile is here.
Another client of mine is a connection on the west coast of the United States. I remember seeing that he viewed my profile a couple of times before sending me the request. I checked his profile and learned that he is an investment banker who did not really share a similar background with me. But, since he viewed my profile more than once I thought he might have seen something interesting. A few days after our connection he phoned me and I learned that he purchased a professional hockey team in his home town. Because he had no experience in sports, he needed a consultant to help with the transition. We spoke several times before he ultimately offered me the opportunity to contribute to his efforts. I’ve found it very beneficial and hopefully he has too. It wouldn’t have happened if I had ignored his connection request. I have found that in order to get the best results through your marketing efforts you have to come up with a strong strategy, set up some rules for yourself and stick to the agenda. Not all marketing outlets and not all philosophies will show each of us the same results. The best thing to do is experiment a
bit, constantly analyze, note the results and if it produces results then add it to your bag of tricks.
