Follow the video tutorial or continue reading the knowledge base article.
In this article, you will learn how to send invitations to people who liked or commented in a post.
What to consider before you send them a connection request:
- Comment on the post
- Engage with other people comments
- Give the post a like
Some tips for engaging
- Keep your comments positive – negativity won’t reflect well on you.
- Ask a question – this encourages debate, which prompts more comments and widens the viewership of the post.
- Discuss an angle or idea that the person who wrote the post didn’t discuss. This shows you are a proactive person to be connected to, and you know your stuff too. This helps build visibility and credibility.
- Don’t say ‘great post’! Why? Because when somebody looks at your activity feed and all it says is "great post", they know you are not an engager and do the bare minimum. This will not impress people.
The benefits of engaging
- You will receive more connection invites.
- It gives you visibility to the extra degree of connection, so many more people will see you, your photo and your material.
- If your comments are really useful and they add to the debate, this will enhance your credibility.
