Cold outreach on LinkedIn can be tough. What is the best attention grabber on LI to send to someone to really stand out and get a good response.

Don’t pitch immediately. And I don’t mean “wait a few days before pitching”. I mean actually engage with content. Send me stuff that I would care about that isn’t from your blog. Be different by not being the person who immediately wants my time.

Connect with a personalized note based on research. A few days later, like something of theirs. Discuss in a message that you saw some activity that sparked your interest in chatting. Share relevant content. Repeat. Then attempt to get on the phone and probe some more.

Get personal. As an example, if your prospect is posting job openings and your product/services assists with talent development, then that would warrant a response.

Engage with their content/post for a month then send a connection request and share some insights (not from your company) from their industry. Dont pitch right away.

Get the fundamentals of your LinkedIn account dialed in first. I find that Linkedin is an awesome place to reach out to people, engage in productive conversations, and get my companies brand out there. I have optimized for my industry and post often which has gotten a lot of engagement over the last year.

Chris Haroun does some fundamental MBA(ish) type courses on Udemy and such so that could be helpful. 

Here is one of his Youtube videos (roughly 20 mins long though)

Connections.  

I see we both know Steve.  I once carried him home after a bender.  Awesome times.  Anyway, who makes decisions on software?

^ this is the one. I'd respond to this over whatever BS script you make based on some influencer or sales guru's online training course...

Send a connect with a note, I have found that they are more likely to open it this way
