I have received more than 35 invitations such as this, phrased almost precisely the same manner. The senders have served surprise...

Like me, have you ever received announcements like these?

> I'm using LinkedIn to maintain with my professional contacts and support them with introductions. Because you're one of the people I recommend, I wanted to ask you to gain access to my community on LinkedIn.


> Basic account is free, and it will take less than a minute to register and join my network.

I have received well over 35 announcements such as this, worded almost precisely the same manner. To study more, please check-out: investigation. The senders have acted upset and amazed that I did not leap to reap the benefits of this request.

Let's consider the issues in this invitation from a marketing standpoint.

* Almost all of the invitations I received were from individuals whose names I didn't recognize. If you are interested in finance, you will seemingly choose to discover about talk. Why would I want to be part of their system? The request does not say who they're, who they've use of and how I would take advantage of their network.

* What is Linked-in, so how exactly does it work and what are the benefits of using it? Nobody has yet explained this clearly within their invitation. You can not expect that some body receiving this invitation knows what you are asking them to participate or how it'd be advantageous to them. It'd be useful to have a passage or two describing how it works and mentioning a specific effect the individual behind the invitation loved from membership. It may be that people believe that since 'basic account is free,' the normal person of this invitation may proceed and join. But even when it will not cost money, joining would devote some time. You still require to 'sell' people on going for a free activity, specially with respect to an activity or organization that may be different to them. Learn more on by going to our prodound website.

* No body took time to head off possible misconceptions or objections to the membership. As I am anxious that joining would open me up to lot of e-mail and telephone calls that would waste my time and in-which I would have no interest, a non-member of Linked-in. Again, you can't believe that anything free is therefore enticing; you need to imagine why someone could have questions or dismiss the concept and handle those arguments.

* Using a processed invitation that is almost the same as everybody else's doesn't create a good impression. If you believe anything, you will perhaps hate to compare about You had desire to give your individual stamp to it, even when the text given by Linked-in were powerful, which it is not.

Other than being irritated that they are obviously encouraging visitors to send announcements that make little sense, I've nothing against Linked In. Perhaps it's a helpful organization. My point is that its members should use common sense and basic marketing maxims to encourage active, suspicious visitors to give it an opportunity..
