On LinkedIn, Don’t Get LockedOut! – part vii

part vii – what does linkedin customer service have to say?

Here are some tips offered by LinkedIn's Customer Service team.

  1. Only use your invitations for individuals who you know.
  2. The reconnect feature should be used solely to reconnect with individuals that you personally knew through a mutual employer or through attending the same educational institution.
  3. If there are individuals that you wish to connect with but they do not fall under the two categories listed then we encourage you to use our other features which include InMail, OpenLink or Introduction requests.
  4. Editing the body of your invitation to prompt a recollection. This can be done when you arrive to the "invite page". At the bottom, you have the option to add a "personal note" which may be edited to reflect your personalized message.
  5. Click on the "Get introduced through a connection" link if this person is connected to someone already in your network.
  6. Add a photo of yourself so that members who may not recognize your name but would certainly remember what you look like.
