Powerful LinkedIn Strategy (Shortened)

Please remember that you are reading this because

  1. You want to increase sales in your business, or
  2. 2. You want to get potential clients using your LinkedIn account

Below this text is the flow of the game plan or the marketing automation plan that most knowledgeable LinkedIn users do in LinkedIn.

Your summary>Send Invitation>Thank You Message> Status Updates>Coffee Meeting (8)>Follow up CM (2)

Okay. I know this seems not very self-explanatory. Please read explanation below.

Your Summary

It is very important that you set this up first, in a way that you can get the attention of your clients/customers.

Note: Just like an employer reads a resume, you will only have a chance of 6 seconds for you to catch the attention of your potential clients/customers.

If you are not able to set this up very well, you can’t have them.

Send Invitation

In sending invitation, you should not use the default message that LinkedIn has provided for you.

Thank You Message

When the new contact finally responds to your request for connection, you have to send a thank you message.

I’ve got my scripts for that. It;s pretty simple and it’s one of the responsible things to do. It may help you look more professional as well.

Status Update

Once you’ve connected. you’ll have to do status updates. It’s like what you do in Facebook. You do FB posts about the things you do.

Coffee Meeting

After posting regular updates for a certain period of time, you should set up a coffee meeting.

In doing this, you should send a message inviting the client to have a coffee meeting with you. It can be physical meeting in Starbucks or any cafe near your location, but you can also set a schedule for a Skype chat or Google hangout if meeting each other personally is impossible for you to do because of distance.

Follow Up Message

Two weeks after sending the message about the coffee meeting, if you don’t get a response, then you’ll send a follow up message regarding the coffee meeting.

So this is what my group call the game behind the game of what you should do in LinkedIn and how you should connect with customers.

Going back to how important the summary is…

I am giving emphasis on this because every time you send an invitation, thank you message, coffee meeting or post status updates, the potential client/customer will go straight to the summary. If they life what they see, then you have a potential client/customer.

It’s as simple as that.

Hi. Do you want to connect to as many people as you want on LinkedIn and you want to be different and you wnat to look more professional? You should not use the default message.

linkein default message



Howdy, <First Name>.

Hello, <First Name>.

Hi, <First Name>.

Hope you are well./Hope all is well.

MUST-HAVE #2 Title and Company

This is a form of telling them that you have looked upon their profile and that you made an effort to have a                    look rather than just letting them read a simple message.

Example: I came across your profile and noticed you’re the <title> of <company>.


MUST-HAVE #3 Human Touch Point (HTP)

Never ever connect unless you have no Human Touch Point/ Common (Person or Group)

People in common are the most powerful HTP in LinkedIn.

How to Rock Social Media

Are you wondering how to make your social media go beyond ordinary?

I’ve been taking online courses from Lynda lately.

One of the courses I have completed is Guy Kawasaki’s “How to Rock Social Media.”

By the way, Lynda is a company owned by LinkedIn, so what courses you are to learn here will definitely be recommended to everyone.

The site is reliable.

The lecturers are expert and know what they are talking about.

The way topics are presented? Awesome.

Well if you don’t have time even a few minutes to listen and take notes for yourself,

I have my notes here.

See presentation below.

How to Use Hootsuite


Are you busy with so many things to do?

You have no more time managing you Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media sites?

You must have come to the right place.

Yes! That’s because I will tell you about…(whispering)…HootSuite.

HootSuite is a social media management system that provides a

browser-based dashboard that allows users to keep updated on the

different social media accounts.

(still whispering)

By the way, I made this tutorial as part of my assignment to Mr. Jomar Hilario, the Philippine’s sole guru for virtual assistants. I was amazed when he mentioned about what HootSuite can do so I included it in my list of tools as my assignment. I found it very interesting as much as I did in the other tools that he had introduced.

Below is my tutorial on how to use HootSuite.

The next time you register on this site and try to figure out how to use it…you can finally do it alone, I’m pretty sure.

This is Kristel Tibule, your beyond ordinary VA.

Happy Hootsuite-ing!
