How to Customize Your Invitation to Connect on LinkedIn Mobile

...(and other cool LinkedIn Mobile features) Access Your Connections To access your connections, go to the My Network tab to see your contacts recent activity. This network brief will show things like job changes, birthdays and work anniversaries. People You May Know Below the updates to your network, youll see a list of people you may know. If you want to connect with someone, click the Connect icon to the right of the persons name to send a connection request. This sends the default request, so if you want to customize the request, click on their name to access their profile (and then keep reading to find out how to customize your request.) Invitation Requests Click on the My Network icon (with the two people on it) in the upper-left corner to see the Invitations tab,... Read More

LinkedIn Search Tip: Your Connections’ Connections

Searching Your Connections' Connections! My friend Bob Burg says All things being equal, people do business with people they know, like and trust. So this gives you the opportunity to search people you know, like and trust and see the people that they know, like and trust. To do this, all you have to do this is find someone you know, like and trust on LinkedIn and then click on the number of connection (if it's in blue) in their bio section. (If its black, this wont work.) The blue number link will take you down into their profile into their connections section. Click on the little magnifying glass and expand it into a search box. Now all you have to do is search on a keyword or title to see who they know.What I love about the connections connection search is when you find... Read More

Using Google to Find Connections

What to do when LinkedInwon't give you a Name! Occasionally, we have to go beyond LinkedIn to find the names of our connections, and one of the first tools you can use to find the name of a "LinkedInMember" is Google! Google Site Search For example - when looking for the marketing people over at Zulilywith a free account -LinkedIngave me a few folk''s first name and last initial, and several "LinkedInMember" results (inviting me to upgrade to see more). In order to see the first and last name of a prospect - I either have to have a paid account - or use the following "Google Hack" The search is very simple. TypeSite: in the search bar on Google. Then, in quotation marks, add who you are looking for, or if you have a search already on LinkedIn, whatever... Read More

LinkedIn Tools Series: eGrabber Email Prospector

By: Viveka Friday April 1, 2016 comments Tags: Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Prospecting, eGrabber, LinkedIn Tips

eGrabber To get the email address, phone number, and other contact and company information for a prospect, I use a tool called Email Prospector by eGrabber. This tool is awesome because it essentially fills in the holes of information that you have on your prospects. You may have a name and company but no email address. Or you know their company and title but cannot remember their name. Simply put in all the information that you know from LinkedIn or other sources, and eGrabber will look for everything else. Through a patent pending search eGrabberis able to scope out Google, Bing, Hoovers, LinkedIn and many other sites out there and pull as much information as it can. The research that you can get from eGrabber is incredibly extensive. It exports into a .CSV... Read More

LinkedIn's New Mobile App

LinkedIn's New Mobile App

A Quick Tour Video: I wanted to give you a quick tour of LinkedIn's new mobile app . It is FINALLY available for both the iPhone and for the Android . (This demo is on the iPhone.) Home Screen First of all, the home screen is going to show your highlights: - the best updates from the people that you follow. You can like, comment and share right from your home screen. I think this is going to actually increase usability and engagement on LinkedIn! Also, you can create an update or even share a photo from this screen. (Love that you can share photos EASILY from your phone without using Airdrop or Dropbox or Evernote!) Before I always had to forward photos I'd taken from my phone onto LinkedIn in order to share them. Now I can just simply share a photo or take a photo.... Read More

New LinkedIn Groups App

By: Viveka Thursday October 15, 2015 comments Tags: LinkedIn Groups, LinkedIn App, LinkedIn Groups App, Viveka von Rosen, LinkedIn Expert

The NEW LinkedIn Groups the application is now available for your Apple device and I actually really, really like it. (Changes to Groups on LinkedIn rolling out soon!) Go to iTunes, click on Apps and Search for LinkedIn Groups. It is NOT the first app to show up. You will recognize it because it looks a lot like the Connected app. Check out this video to see LinkedInGroups in action! Once it is downloaded and opened it, the app is going to ask you if you want to sign in as yourself (if you already have a LinkedIn mobile app.) If you don't, then you'll probably just have to sign into LinkedIn. Either way, you only have to do it once, and then the LinkedIn Groups app will take you to the home screen where you can see what's happening. The Highlights page is pretty much... Read More

Heres the skinny on LinkedIn Lookup LinkedIn says its the fastest way to find, learn about, and contact anyone at your company, even if youre not connected to them on LinkedIn. According to LinkedIn, Lookup helps you to: Search quickly - Looking for someone (IN YOUR OWN COMPANY) with a specific skill set or job responsibility? Search by name, experience, job function, title, or expertise. Its that easy. Discover easily - Meeting someone new at work?

So finding out whom you have sent invites to is a pain in the butt! And not very accurate either. But here are the steps if you want to try it out: Go to your inbox and click on Sent Sort by Invitations Manually go through and look for (Accepted) Delete the ones you want to As a caveat it will also show you Invitations that YOU have responded to but not accepted using the reply button. Or this link might work too: = Tweet: Ever wonder how to find who you sent invites to on LinkedIn? Here's how! ... Read More

I often get this question with people new to LinkedIn, or with small networks. The reason LinkedIn wont let you send an invite is usually one of three things (and really the last one is usually the case.) 1 - Either you have exceeded your invites (3000) in which case just go to LinkedIn's helps section to ask for more. (See video on how to do that here: ) 2 - Too many people have IDK'd you (said they don't know you) and LinkedIn has limited you. Again, beg LinkedIns forgiveness via their help section. 3 - These connections are outside your network (you don't share a group and are not friends of friends). In which case start proactively joining some groups they are in. Hope that helps! Viv ... Read More
