    You’re welcome! Let me know how you get on.

    This makes complete sense. I also have a promo video which I use as a generic video and it works quite well.

    I also saw some really interesting ideas around “hooking” people with something funny or that would peak their curiosity.

    As weird as it sounds I am actually toying with the idea of making a video of my “party trick” and sending that as part of a well crafted message.

    Let me know if that sounds interesting and perhaps I’ll expand some more on the idea!

    I like this concept. I would also summarize the video, for those who don't fire it up immediately.

    Party trick...

    I automatically think back to my infantry days where doing a 2 minute keg stand would initially piss off the college kids, but then they'd realize how ridiculous it was and could get to +100 seconds. I'll assume that you're not selling kegs, solo cups, or beer funnels.

    What's your party trick?

    @Chapas you ever give this a try? I am expecting to start creating videos next week and am looking to see if anyone else is seeing positive feedback from this.

    Not yet. I plan to start tomorrow or Friday. Just made a plan to connect with 30 new prospects every day. It is pretty ambitious and I might slow down at some point if everything goes to quickly. Looking forward to trying it out and also seeing how it goes with you!

    You may not see me as reliable as I created the thread, however I am seeing multiple new leads go into my pipeline every day as a direct result of this.

    Would uploading some screenshots help everyone to get fired up about this?

    I have no doubt in you at all! I think this strategy is amazing. Just did not have the time to try it out yet. Now I have structured my days better and will give it a shot in the next days for the whole month. I think it will do wonders!

    I fully believe you!

    You know how it is... just always looking for more social proof. :happy: Would love to see the screenshots though. The more that you can share, the better

    A little bit of inspiration for you guys. Just a few of the leads I've had through recently using the above strategy:

    Nice! A tip: get a hard confirmation of a date/time in their calendar, so they don’t schedule over your prospecting call!

    I’m working on a couple other projects. No lead generation for me, but I did a ton of ORM a couple years ago, and this was huge to not get blown off.

    Just wanted to say...

    I started implementing this strategy last night and got a phone call of a HOT lead on just my second video. Thanks again for the awesome strategy

    LinkedIn has become the most important social media in terms of B&B sales and marketing. Also, database research companies rely on it a lot.

    YES! This is such great news!

    In my first month of doing this (and not as consistently as I'd like) I have over 40 people in my sales pipeline.

    I have closed a couple of nice deals - need to work on some of the others.

    Am also trying to post content to LinkedIn daily. Now that I am connecting with so many people on the platform, I may as well use organic methods for staying in front of them as well as paid!

    I am really thinking to start a progress thread on the forum

    Just closed a $500/month client. He was the second person that I ever sent a video to using this method.

    Wouldn't have ever done it without this thread. It is now a permanent part of my prospecting efforts.

    Now THIS is fantastic! So pleased to hear it's working for you!

    I just recently nailed a $2600 per month client, so I am super happy. Obviously pumping out a LOAD of content to my retargeting audience too.

    Keep doin' it!

    Any other success stories?

    Are you paying for LinkedIn? If so, what package?

    When I do this, I dont have the option to select the 2nd and 3rd connections. It's grayed out.

    Awesome thread and tips!

    I'm in the process of starting a B2B marketplace with one of my buddies and hadn't given much consideration of using LinkedIn but after reading, I'm definitely going to add it on the list of marketing techniques!
