Networking

Most of our professional networking is still done through Linkedin especially since face to face has been out of the question for a year now. How do you go about developing these relationships that you are trying to build virtually? Just comment on their posts? Maybe slide in the DMs once and a while? I'm 100% a face to face person and I know I could do better in this area.

You create your profile. The algorithm randomly connects u to 1 interesting person that it finds you'll connect with

Yes to commenting on their posts and sending a DM. Eventually asking to meet virtually (or in person), but using some back and forth engagement on LI if possible. Also asking their opinion on some topic you know they are interested in, or asking them for advice on reaching out to other customers.ย

Lots of good thoughts here. Have you had much success in actually meeting with folks? Whether itโ€™s in person or not
