Can't Keep Up With Your LinkedIn Connections? Here's How.
Don't you just hate that? I do. Especially if they approach you, remember you and your name but you just can't remember theirs or how you know them. You search the "Rolodex" in your head. Still, there's nothing. Just emptiness and frustration.
Reminder: This is very powerful. LinkedIn allows you to set up a reminder to prompt you in a day, a week, a month or even recurring (every week, every month, every 3 months, every 6 months, every year and even a custom range of days). The platform will automatically send you a message based on how you set this up.
How You Met: No more head scratching trying to place someone in your head. Now you can say, "Oh yeah! I met you at that annual conference for our association in Charlotte."
Tag: Sort your connections based on your desire to classify each contact into a category or keyword. Now you'll be able to view and communicate with your connections in a whole new way.
Take advantage of this mini-CRM LinkedIn tool. If you keep it up to date, you'll increase your chances for continued success, be reminded to check in with prospects and connections and minimize those moments of bewilderment when someone reintroduces himself or herself to you.
