One of the neat features of LinkedIn is the ability to see who’s looking at your profile. There are some limitations to this, but it can be a valuable tool if you use it correctly.
It will serve you well to take a minute every morning to see who has been checking you out. How about sending them a message like, “Hi Mary, I noticed that you were looking at my profile. Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your busy day to check me out. How may I serve you in some way? I always seek to add value to all my personal and professional relationships. I’d love to help you in some way. Make me prove it. Kev :)”
Now, you may be thinking, “Really? You would type something like that?” Word for friggin word, my friend. And “friggin” isn’t a cuss word, it’s a New Jersey term of endearment.
People are seeking authenticity. Instead of pretending that eight-hundred pound elephant isn’t in the room, run up to it and hug it. They must have been looking at your profile for some reason. Let’s not pretend it didn’t happen.
Huge doors of opportunity swing on tiny hinges. Offer to help people. All the time. Those who serve the most lead the happiest and most profitable lives. It’s your time to shine.
