Public service announcement

If you use Mailgun

and ANY third party domain warming software like WarmupInbox

Its time you STOP...

Yesterday my Mailgun acccount was shut down because of 'suspicious activity'

The main issue was the spam-like nature of the messages sent by the warming software

Like this subject line "Any salad dressing can organize a lover about a | wuI"

However using automated 3rd party services is essentially against AUP in any case

But sending spam-like messages with automation software is just plain asking for trouble...

Moving forward I'll be using a manual, 100% internal warming system using email accounts and VAs sending real messages.

Your business, your choice, but if you're currently using
Mailgun and ANY automated warm-service my recommendation is to stop right away.

Btw thankfully, Mailgun are pretty cool and I've got my account back opened.

But the lesson has been learned...

RECOMMENDATIONS are the most valuable yet under-optimized part of your LinkedIn profile.

Virtually nobody pays attention or prioritizes increasing these.

Yet when I check out your profile, the first thing I'm looking for is what other people say about you.

// LI Recommendations //

You can only get recommendations from your existing Level 1 connections

So be sure to send a connection request to EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR CLIENTS

Recommendations from your colleagues or boss are useless zero unless you're looking for a job.
// LI Recommendations //

Like all good testimonials, the more specific they are the better...

This is from Dustin, one of my recent Recommendations, about his consultancy call with me:

"within the first 10 minutes I'd already had a page of notes"

This is the #1 question I get asked about LinkedIn outreach...

"𝘚𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘐 𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘮𝘺 𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘺 𝘤𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵'𝘴 𝘢𝘤𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘤𝘵 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮?"

#1 You don't want to use your personal profile to prospect for anyone other than you

You SHOULD be prospecting yourself so you can

> Gain more clients
> Gain experience how to use LinkedIn

Experimenting using your clients' accounts isn't recommended

Be your own client first
#2 People mainly connect with you because of your profile strength NOT your connection message

The importance of connection messages is overrated

Your prospects want to see your profile and will JUDGE you on it.

If you look like an expert

They are MUCH more likely to accept

[SHORT THREAD] LinkedIn outbound message TEARDOWN Example
MISTAKE #1 - Targeting

I've tweeted about this non-stop...

The FIRST thing you need to get right is your targeting

Pitching a LinkedIn outreach service to someone who offers LinkedIn outreach services

...only shows you have NO CLUE what you're doing at all.

MISTAKE #2 - LinkedIn profile headline

This headline is just terrible...

"Generating clients; growing your business; sharpening your toolbox."

a 0/10 score...

...and this person is a LinkedIn expert?
