Today's LinkedIn Nugget

No time like the present

How does your response rate reflect on you?

Do you have dozens, scores, or hundreds of messages stacked up on your Linkedin page, with prospective clients, colleagues and customers waiting to hear from you?

Do they feel betrayed or ignored?

How does that bode for downstream, additional business at a later point?

Or do you react every day, perhaps multiple times a day, to answer, forward, and/or delete messages that need to be handled as such, to be sure you are up to date in your correspondence?

Be on time, under budget, and within specs. Your reputation is on the line in all you do (or don’t do) and a reputation is a terrible thing to waste.

Be in the moment. Be proactive.

No one ever said, “I didn’t see your message on LinkedIn” and looked professional for it.
