Hello friends! This week, I wanted to give you a quick Tech Tip about using the LinkedIn app on your mobile device to quickly connect with people that you meet at a networking event. It’s kind of a neat trick and makes you look technically savvy. :)
I hope you will take the time to watch the video on how you pull up the QR code that links directly to your LinkedIn profile. You show that to the person you are meeting, and they scan it with their camera app to go directly to your LinkedIn account. Then, all you have to do is click the “Connect” button to invite that person to connect. It’s a lot better than asking them to find you on LinkedIn later, and they don’t have to do a search for you on LinkedIn since the QR code takes them directly to your profile.
Nifty, right? I don’t know, maybe you will never use this. But I thought it was cool when I saw someone doing this at an event recently. Give it a try and let me know if you think it is useful or too gimmicky.
As always, thanks for being on this journey with me. I type this message every time I create a video and blog post on my website. I genuinely appreciate it. And if you think of someone that could benefit from my content, I would really appreciate it if you could forward this on to them. Have a great week!
