Do you guys use LinkedIn for selling or networking more often?

I find I'm strictly networking but have used those leads to meet with other buyers

I donโ€™t sell on LinkedIn but I get most of my sales from LinkedIn if that makes sense.

LinkedIn is an incredible way to build a network and use the info to sell another channels

I try to interact with their content, but if they don't have any/are not active, then I would just connect and message them something very generic. If there is any sort of interest, I would try to get them on the phone or engaged via email.

Not really. I use it to confirm the title for the prospect I've identified.

I use LinkedIn to generate 3-5 automated booked meetings a week. Not so much selling as connecting and requesting time. I use a tool to automate a lot of these activities. My posts rarely include a sales pitch but mostly used to be "top of mind" to those I am connecting with.

use it wisely, its for selling.....but not selling. Build a brand a bit, show you know your stuff....but dont flat out try to sell to someone, its tacky

Networking. Being in government sales, sometimes I am lucky to find my operational contact even on LinkedIn

I use it for networking and gathering insights on prospects. I don't use it to sell.ย

Just for prospecting purposes, and I guess a little networking. I don't use it to sell/pitch.
