How to Introduce Connections on LinkedIn

Ever have one of those moments when you realize one of your contacts should meet another one of your contacts? Great networkers look for those moments all the time.

You can introduce contacts by email, but LinkedIn is a terrific alternative because the introduction automatically includes photos and profile information! That can save both parties time making sure the connection is a good fit. It also takes the pressure off of you to accurately describe each person’s career.

Last week I shared 3 Quick Tips for your LinkedIn Profile. If you missed it, go back and be sure your profile is up-to-date.

This week let’s use LinkedIn to delight your network by referring friends to friends (or, technically ‘connections’ to ‘connections’).

How to Introduce Connections on LinkedIn

As noted in the video, you can choose to share both profiles with each connection at the same time, or you can share a profile privately with one connection first. (Note: Some LinkedIn members restrict their privacy settings and turn off sharing, so this may not be an option with every connection.)

Use it or loose it. Build confidence by trying this LinkedIn feature now. Introduce a client to another client, or hey – perhaps you know someone I should meet.  Feel free to connect us as your first attempt!
