Inviting People to Connect on LinkedIn - Best Practices
LinkedIn has several ways you can find contacts to connect with.
- The People You May Know section is a great resource. Click on the Connect button.
- Click on any person’s name in a group, in the news stream, or company employee list. These names will be in blue text, which makes them easy to see. This will take you to the person’s profile page.
- You can also search for the person's profile page and then click on the Connect button.
When you get to the “Invite _____ to connect on LinkedIn” screen, you have some choices to make to tell Linked In how you know this person.
