How do you increase your number of MarketHive subscribers, or "children" if you will?
I think LinkedIn is one of the best ways to accomplish this. It seems as though, I may have finally cracked the LinkedIn code to do this, well sort of. I have been studying every LinkedIn training course I could get my hands on in the last six months. Today, I got 12 new invitations to connect with me this morning in my inbox, and I have added 981 connections so far this month. This is a fairly rapid increase, that I believe few people are currently doing now, on LinkedIn.
In addition, all of those new connections have been invited to join MarketHive. (I am currently getting nearly a 1% response rate on invitations to MarketHive). I am actively trying to find a way to increase that percentage, but it is resulting in nearly one new MarketHive sign-up per day.
I don't know how many entrepreneurs realize that their first level connections are already in their sales funnel? Everyone looking to market on LinkedIn needs to think this way. Ok, it may not be exactly the same, but it is very close to it. Everything depends on what you do with those connections.
Some kind of automation is needed here for sure. The manual way of messaging in LinkedIn will take you nearly forever (well, not exactly. but it could easily take 3-4 hours perday) to send invites, messages, shares, posts, and all of the tasks you need to do on a regular basis. Even if you send messages to your 1st level connections and you have 1000, it will take several hours a day and 4 days to complete the task.
Btw, the LinkedIn limit for invitation requests per day is 40-50 maximum with a free account or a paid account, (Sales Navigator has a limit of 100 per day). There is a limit of 250 messages per day to your 1st level connections on all LinkedIn accounts. If you do that every day manually, it is a very time consuming process, for sure!
I am in the process of setting up a step-by-step training program on how to use LinkedIn to promote Markethive. I may also expand it to a complete LinkedIn training as well, depending on the level of interest. In any case, this is something anyone can do. It can be done, even with a free LinkedIn account. With additional low-cost automation software solutions, the process can be greatly accelerated.
All for now. Thanks for your interest.
Best possible sucess in all your endeavors!
