Send Linkedin InMail to leads
InMails is LinkedIn’s email version that allows you to reach out to your targeted leads by well-crafted LinkedIn InMail messages. Research your prospect and draft a personalized message that connects with your prospect easily.
For example, if a lead recently shared an article on marketing trends, your rep can share their comments on the article and highlight how they will help.
Use a compelling subject line, write your email around your prospect’s needs with a quick conversation to ensure that your email is short and simple.
Do keep in mind that you will get only limited InMail credits based on your subscription. So, never send hundreds of messages that you can do using normal emails.
Use Bluebird Search
A ‘bluebird search’ refers to leads or happy customers that were once aligned with your products or services but now they are with a news organization. So, if you want to get them back then your reps can use the “past not current” filter to find these leads.
Optimize Your Profile
Sales reps need to optimize their LinkedIn profiles to make them stand out from other users on the platform. A profile represents their brand, as well as your organization. Always remember, 82% of buyers lookup providers on LinkedIn before replying to make the right first impression.
Optimize your profile with:
- A high-quality professional headshot or photograph

- Headline with a value proposition
- Your contact information
- Detailed work experience
