How to Send Video in LinkedIn Messages – 3 Simple Steps

LinkedIn suggests that InMail messages get 10-25% replies, which is higher than emails. The two main reasons for this increased replies are:

1.  People use LinkedIn to connect and learn. One of the best features of LinkedIn is you can see when your contacts are live, so you can message them at a time when they are thinking about business/career goals and how they can achieve them.

2.  Your message shows your professional profile. Your clients can know more about you, your company, your experience and skills with a single click. Seeing this they can select or reject you and get back to whatever they were doing.

These benefits are real. Social selling has resulted in your decision makers’ LinkedIn inboxes full just like their email inboxes. You and your message have to stand out from the crowd if you want to capture the advantages provided by LinkedIn and earn the attention of your hard to reach clients.

The best and the only way to win over the LinkedIn inbox (and clients in general) is to make your messages very interesting which leaves a long lasting impact just like you would do in interpersonal interaction.
