Did you know 85%+ of messages you send over LinkedIn are never read!
That’s because most people connect their LinkedIn to their Gmail or Hotmail. Your LinkedIn In-mail goes into a special folder called LinkedIn junk, that they read during non-business hours.
So… what is the chance your high-value business ROI message is going to ring a bell to your B2B executive at midnight or weekends when they are catching some rest?
Your LinkedIn network is a great place to share best practices, ask questions, get mentored and get jobs – but not for trying to get people for a demo or think of serious business.
Your LinkedIn will never be a great place to send B2B sales messages to your network.
However, if you can figure out a way to reach your LinkedIn network directly on their corporate email-ID during your business hours-you will have converted your LinkedIn network in Business prospects & sales leads!
eGrabber has a tool that will append direct work email & phone to your network. In most cases eGrabber adds work email & phone that is not found anywhere on the profile – so even if you are connected to them you don’t have access to.
