LinkedIn invitation message 

Hello [[firstname]]

I noticed that we share a common interest in [topic].

Looking forward to discussing the subject with you! 

[Your first name]

⚠️ Good to know 

Invitations without a message are more likely to be accepted, for a very simple reason 🧸

Invitation messages can seem too direct and aggressive to the person receiving them. 

➡️ It is better to initiate the conversation once the prospect has accepted your invitation. This way, you have a better chance that he will respond to you and that the exchange will be expected.

🤩 LeadnLead Tip 

1️⃣ Be clear and concise 

Take a clear approach. Put yourself in your prospect’s place and ask yourself: “Why am I reading this message? What do I have to gain from it? What is the point of continuing the discussion?”_

2️⃣ Personalize your messages

Personalization proves that you are interested in him and that you have done a minimum of research before sending your message. Remember, everyone likes to feel special. ✨

3️⃣ Write short messages

No one likes receiving endless messages, especially on social media. They tend to discourage your leads from reading you. 

Sometimes, that’s how we stay “read” or “put back”.

Additionally, short messages require less effort from your prospects. It’s up to you to be impactful! 🥊

Moreover, 57% of users access LinkedIn from their mobile devices.

4️⃣ Don’t pitch from the first message

Don't rush your leads, give them time to get to know you before selling your products or services.

Restart message following a first message sent without response

It often happens that the message sent remains unanswered... And yet your lead has seen it clearly. 👀

Your prospect may have seen your message but not had time to respond, or perhaps they simply forgot about it.

Imagine the number of invitations and messages he can receive every day, your message is just one among many. This is why it is important to relaunch them. 

Here's an example right here 👇


I wanted to come back to my previous message. Have you had a chance to think about my proposal?

Here are my contact details: 
📞 (phone)
📨 (mail)

Kind regards,

[Your first name]

🤩 LeadnLead Tip

It is recommended to send 2 reminders

Favor short messages to relaunch your leads, while pressing on the previous message. Please ensure that these 2 reminder messages are not a series of repetitions of the same message. Bring added value to every follow-up!
