LinkedIn can be a powerful tool for business communication. However, it can also be a huge time-sink. In this blog post, we will discuss three steps that will help you speed up your LinkedIn communication.

Prepare

The first step is to identify a regular pattern of communications you receive. If you're running a sales campaign, you'll undoubtedly recognise 90% of the communications and can group them by subject. For example:

  • negative, like "Thank you but there is no need at the moment"
  • positive+more information, like "Can you send me more information" or "Please send your deck to my email"
  • positive + meeting, like "Yes, We can have a call next week or so"
  • neutral, like "Thank you for the connection"

After categorising the messages you can build a communication flow for each of them. You can do it in any app or paper, I prefer using Miro and Weje. Each category usually requires a couple of message copies.

With approximately 10-20 templates available, you can easily construct a flow that only takes an hour or two to complete. Not only will this save you time in the short run by providing pre-written responses, but it will also help you gain a better understanding of communication patterns. This way, over time you won't need to spend any additional time creating or thinking over replies because you'll be able to reference the flowchart and immediately find the right one.

Automate

Here are some ideas for what you can do with your templates:

  • you can copy messages from chatflow and paste into Linkedin
  • you can create a Sheet, Notion or whatever database and copy from there to Linkedin
  • you can use a tool that will allow you to paste the templates with pre-written properties like <Name> or <Company>

First two options are great but I prefer using Leadjet. It helps me to set-up templates with tags and even color highlighting. And I'm super time-efficient as I spend around 10 seconds to process incoming messages.

Edit

Over time, it makes sense to update your templates. When you're responding to a lot of messages, it's easy to make find new content ideas based on the messages you receive.That's why it's important to take a step back and review your flow from time to time. A good rule of thumb is to review your messaging once a week.


If you find yourself frequently editing your templates, this could be a sign that you need to make updates or add new patterns to your workflow.


By following these three simple steps, you can speed up your LinkedIn communication and free up time to focus on other important tasks. Do you have any additional tips? DM me on LinkedIn!
