We run LinkedIn In company Workshops all over the country and one of the things we tell people not to do is to ask people to connect when using the LinkedIn App. This is because you cannot personalise the request to connect like you can on a PC. Well, that has all changed!
You may have noticed that LinkedIn has been through a number of changes lately and the same goes for the App. They have now introduced a ‘personalise invitation’ option.
Personalising an invitation makes you stand out from the crowd as you are not sending the same old ‘i’d like to add you to my network’ – this is quite often seen as spam and you may just get ignored. Personalising an invite is a great way of letting people know why they would benefit from connecting with you.
To personalise an invitation on the LinkedIn App make sure you have the latest version, tap the three dots icon in the top right of someones profile, tap ‘personalise invite’, enter your message and tap ‘Send’.
This is a great new feature which enables us to use more of LinkedIn’s features on the go!
