Ask Me Anything About LinkedIn


I appreciate all your help. This is great.


My girl is looking for an online job so she can travel with me - what’s the best way to optimise her Linkedin to increase her chances of this?

Should I automate / grow it for a while to give her social proof?


Hey do you think LinkedIn works best when connecting with local people?

I’ve been playing with it to connect with freelancers and sell them SEO services / digital marketing packages, however maybe 5% of them seem to be accepting the connection requests. I’m sending a general connection request message which includes their name though. I’m connecting with united states based freelancers, being from Europe myself though.
My profile looks fairly nice, however I only have 31 connections as of now so could that be another reason?



It works with both Local and Non-Local. But they need to have a reason to connect with you. Local breaks that barrier because it’s so easy to say “Okay, they’re also from my area. I’ll accept.”

But, if not local, I’d work on your headline and make it better so freelancers want to connect with you because they might get value from you!
