In the online world it’s important to leverage every single opportunity you have. It goes hand in hand with that old saying, “You only have one chance to make a good first impression.”
My colleague, Guerrilla Marketing Gorilla Greg Hoffman, recently leveraged his LinkedIn network to let them know he was looking for a new position in the Marketing / PR arena.
In response, he got a great lesson in how to be more effective at doing just that from one of his contacts. Here are the condensed tips:
>Respect Your Network
>Customize The Notification Email
>The Email Is The Message
>Sell: Have An Objective
>Market: Don’t Waste The Opportunity
>Network: Remember, It’s Not About You
Hop on over to Greg’s Blog to read the entire message. It will be worth your time. Then come back here and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
