How to make the most out of your LinkedIn’s Who’s Viewed Me Screen

Let’s be honest, at least once maybe twice a day you look at your LinkedIn’s Who’s Viewed Me screen, whether it be out of curiosity or if you are wanting to see if there can be potential business relationships. If you are on LinkedIn, you should be checking out your Who’s Viewed Me screen every single day so you can see who has been checking you out on LinkedIn.

The prospects visited your profile for a reason, it might have been because you are in their target audience, you might have caught their attention with something you posted/shared on LinkedIn, or it might have even been when someone mentioned you in a conversation and your profile popped up on their news feed. Whatever it may be, it is your job to follow up with them and see if there could be any potential whether it be now or in the future.

If you feel there could be potential, send them an InMail, or better yet send them an invitation to connect on LinkedIn but make sure to personalize the invitation request message. Be sure to ask if you are able to jump on a brief phone call to introduce yourselves and see if there are ways that you can explore business opportunities.

With LinkedIn, the sky is the limit. You never know what may come of it and where the next business deal lies.
