What does LinkedIn have to do with Online Dating?
Most of us know someone who has experienced online dating … you may have heard their stories or have your own, of people who are, umm, let’s just say a little bit creepy or desperate.
Your friend possibly saw their online profile, they seemed normal enough … worth a coffee maybe, so they clicked to connect … and then WHOA look out, that other person is bombarding your friend’s inbox and coming across a bit full on to say the least.
So what does LinkedIn have to do with online dating?
Well, lately I’ve been getting a lot of LinkedIn requests. I never accept LinkedIn requests without first looking to see that there’s some sort of alignment and that the person at least has a profile picture where you can see their face, and then I may accept the connection.
What happens after that is 1 of 3 things
- They fade off into the LinkedIn abyss never to be seen or heard of again
- They share some good content on LinkedIn that I may or may not read
- They send a personal email within 24 hours of connecting trying to sell me a MINDSET SHIFT, or a new WEBSITE, or show me how to LOSE 20kgs (gee thanks) … or a [insert anything else you can think of here].
This is NOT COOL. Trying to sell this way is not my idea of good business.
In this weeks video, I get a bit of a rant up but this really annoys me!
