    Linkedin messages not being read

    Hey guys!

    Just a quick question about linkedin and sending messages on there. I’m finding that none of the messages I am sending are being read at all (even with an intriguing subject title!)

    If I were to upgrade to sales navigator, would that make any difference to how I show up within an inbox?

    I’m figuring out my sales cadence and know that relying on a linkedin message isn’t the only outreach. But it’s interesting that none are being read at all. Perhaps I need to ditch that method, or maybe once I have messaged, I should then make a comment on a post to let them know I have sent a DM?

    Any advise would be much appreciated and what your thoughts/ experiences are with sending DMS on linkedin.

    Are you sending InMails here or normal DMs?

    Hi Michelle, thanks for your reply. Infact, just looking at my sent messages now, many of them do say ‘inMail’….

    I think key is not really whether you are sending DM or Inmail but what you are sending in your message

    I never open any InMails I receive. They’re ALWAYS salespeople trying to book time in my calendar.

    Why not connect to your prospects, engage on their content and then drop them a message when it fits.

    Exactly. If you are trying to sell something or book a call on your first message it’s going to fail

    Most people don’t even accept your invitation to connect.  What if he doesn’t post much content or any at all?

    Hi Lucy, I have been having success with this – by all means, pop a meeting in my calendar to discuss:
