I know, you are busy just like me.
You are burning through your emails and you see those ‘invitations to connect‘ on LinkedIn, emails.
You’ve decided that you are happy to ‘connect‘ so you press the ‘Accept’ button and you continue with your other work.
Pressing the ‘accept’ button is not connecting!!
Next time press ‘accept’ and send that person a message – You might: thank them and ask them how their business is going?
Oh my god ….people actually communicate on this platform, don’t faint!
It might even surprise you that they might reply to you and you find that you are well on the way to nurturing a new connection without even lifting your bum off the seat ..magic.
The worst that can happen as a result of that extra 20 seconds is that you have stood out and they might think that you are a nice person.
So..stop pressing those buttons online and start connecting!
