14:01:27 From Jerrold Shapiro : Anyone who wants my help please email me: FemMedical@gmail.com

14:02:15 From Stephen Opie : LinkedIn etiquette question! If someone visits your site but does not offer to connect, yet you really want them to connect, what is the best policy? Send a connect back to them? Send a message of intro? Thank them for visiting your page? Just wondering….

14:03:34 From Jill Hunter : Stephen- Are you talking about someone who lands on your personal profile or your business page?

14:03:59 From Stephen Opie : Business on LInkedIn

14:05:04 From David Shiang : Stephen, I would thank them for visiting and ask to connect. You migh also figure out how to provide value to them so they want to connect.

14:07:22 From Emily Zaccardi : Stephen, assuming you have already tried sending the connection request, I think it is ok to then send a direct mail message because sometimes people get very distracted. Ex: they may have visited your page because of real interest, yet will not remember to go back to close the connection loop if a distraction occurs. (Although, I do not think you need to make mention that you tracked their activity. Maybe something like, x,y,z reminded me of my interest in having a convo with you so I thought I’d send you this follow-up)

14:09:51 From Stephen Opie : Thanks David – Thanks Emily for sharing those wise words of wisdom!

14:20:13 From David Shiang : The Challenger Sale: Taking Control of the Customer Conversation Hardcover – November 10, 2011 by Matthew Dixon (Author), Brent Adamson (Author)
