Identifying who you know that knows who you are looking to meet is a very powerful feature on LinkedIn, but often I am asked, now what? Here is a template that you are certainly welcome to use to create a message that sounds like you. This template can be used for your company searches, advanced and saved searches or just about anytime you identify a shared connection that you would like to ask for help. Quick Reminder, the phone still works too!
I hope this note finds you well. As you may know, I am leveraging LinkedIn to grow my network and noticed that you are connected to XXX at XXX. I was wondering if you would kindly provide an introduction for me. If you could copy us both in an email or LinkedIn message I can take it from there. To make it easier for you, I have included a short paragraph below that you are welcome to copy and paste. Also, please feel free to look through my connections, I am happy to make introductions for you as well.
Thanks so much!
