Using the LinkedIn Contacts Screen to Nurture Business Contacts

The LinkedIn contacts screen underwent some dramatic changes. Only now after being able to settle into this new system has it really shown its worth.

The top of the contacts page is a short “Keep in Touch” section that shows you can birthdays work anniversaries or new jobs your connections have gotten. Keeping up to date with these events is a great way to nurture business contacts, and continue to be active on LinkedIn.

Under this section is a list of all of your contacts. While this may seem like a simple list, it is in fact a very powerful tool. At the top of the section you can sort your contacts by recent conversations (Which is activity), alphabetically, or by newest connections. You can then filter then by company, location, title and so much more. This filters allow you to drill down through your contacts, and get in touch with exactly who you need to.
Finally, you can search your contacts, to save you having to scroll through an extensive list, which is useful when you remember a face, and only a first name.

Tough Talk

Ignoring this powerful tool on LinkedIn is an incredible waste of time. Being able to filter and search through contacts could save you hours of work shortlisting your contacts manually. Let LinkedIn do the hard work for you, or be overtaken by those that do.

Tool Tip

Don’t forget to make use of the Keep in Touch section. Being able to quickly respond to your contacts important milestones will save both time, and allow you to keep a healthy business relationship with your contacts.
