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:

Facelift, but I LOVE it!
Now its not the face is the important (an ex-minister of Hungary) but the are bordered with yellow and the logo pinpointing the "mouse-over-popup" (you put your mouse over the blue area and pops up the) logo. This happens when one has a "semi-Anonymous" viewer visited your profile.
Check the image bellow:
So, the main characteristics of the viewer will be shown. At the top image, I coul see both the logo and the name of the Linkedin Company Page.
I have clicked on the logo, arrived to the Company Page and realised, that I don't know anyone from that company, so I connected 3 of them...
Who's viewed your profile is my most favorite gadget, feature on Linkedin.
When you arrive on Linkedin you find the menu bar on the top. The second menu is a drop down menu, (click for it on tablet) where you can find two sub menus, the "Edit profile" and the "Who's viewed your profile".
I start here with "Edit profile".
