Bill Mccormick |

 belowMaking connections on LinkedIn is the foundation of building a strong professional network. There are a few key areas to focus on when connecting with new people, and in this LinkedIn post below we will dive deeper into how to connect on the desktop:

  1. Who should you connect with
  2. Where should you connect from
  3. Personal note
  4. Connection danger zone
  5. How you should connect
  6. Now what?

While connecting seems like an elementary exercise,  doing it the right way can have a huge impact on your connection acceptance rate and even the way you begin to build trust and business relationships.

PROTIP: Be a connector and not a collector. It isn’t the size of your network that matters, but the quality.
