When someone pops up on my doorstep, I always open up. If I don't, they might think I'm a bit of a snob. You want to make a good impression, right? Well, on Linkedin, we're all selling ourselves to potential business partners.
Think of it this way: when someone checks out your profile, they're knocking on your virtual door. So if you want to welcome them in, you need to send them a friendly message. But don't just say "hey, I want to connect." That's about as exciting as watching paint dry.
No, you've got 300 characters to play with, so make the most of them! Add a little introduction, maybe a link or URL to your website, and show them what you're all about.
If you don't bother sending a message, it's like ignoring the doorbell altogether. Don't be that person! You need to create a 200 characters template that you can personalise with an extra 100 characters or so. Make it feel like a real letter, not some robotic message generated by a computer.
Sure, you can use AI to check your grammar and make it sound more professional, but you should always use your own brain to come up with the words.
So, here's what you need to do:

Want to Outsmart the Linkedin Algorithm? Customize Your Activity List and Enjoy the Sweet Taste of Victory (or at least a More Organized Profile)
Linkedin allows you to manually prioritise your Activity list, so you can choose to show Events instead of Posts (the default) or Comments. As Comments are the Holy Grail 🏆 on Linkedin, I'd recommend making them the most visible.
If you're in Creator mode, as I am, Linkedin puts Activity and Featured sections before the About section. If you're not in Creator mode, the About and Featured sections are in front of the Activity.
Either way, it's a great step from Linkedin to let us decide what's important. It's always satisfying to know that you've outsmarted the Linkedin Algorithm!

There are three different options when it comes to LinkedIn ads, in the messaging system.
Sponsored Messaging, Message Ads, and Conversation Ads are all Linkedin Ads built in the Messaging. These advertising options on LinkedIn aim to connect with the target audience directly and increase engagement & conversions.
The difference lies in the type of messages sent. The way in which they communicate with the target audience.
Allows direct, one-to-one messaging in the audience's LinkedIn inbox. Interactive messages can also be sent, which help interested parties easily find desired content and offers.
🤣 Now you can spam your LinkedIn connections directly! Who says the art of cold-calling is dead?
Allow for targeted messaging with a single CTA through LinkedIn messages, and Lead Gen forms can also be added for direct collection of quality leads on LinkedIn.
🤣 Targeted messaging with a single click? It's like shooting fish in a barrel! Or in this case, leads on LinkedIn.
Allow for interactive conversations to be initiated with the target audience, providing a more personalised experience for interested parties. Multi-button CTAs enable visitors to easily access desired content and offers, and Lead Gen forms can also be added for quality lead collection. Conversation Ads also offer deeper insights into audience intent through detailed click reporting.
🤣 Because who wouldn't want a personalised chat with a robot trying to sell them something? At least it's not like talking to your ex.
This type of Linkedin Ads are not available in (neither from, nor to) the EU since January, 2022
🤣 Sorry EU, looks like you'll have to resort to traditional sales tactics like handshakes and phone calls.
You can create a successful Personal Brand with a LinkedIn Group, that attracts and engages your target audience.

Mentioning specific industries or professions can attract them.

Including short bits of wisdom, conversation-starting questions, and use polls to generate activity.
