LinkedIn Tip #64 - Do you know about the Relationship Tab?

Do you mean to tell me there is a tab for this?

There sure is!

With all your first connections, when you view their profiles you will see the relationship tab just below the top profile box of each profile.

I bet you have been seeing this and never even looked into it. Am I right?

Click on it!

It will open up and you will be able to see all your discussion thread you have had with them. It will help you to remember how to collaborate with each other, or if you were looking to introduce them to someone.

Click on each of the tiny tabs in the Relationship Tab.

First is the discussion thread opens up automatically.

Second is the Notes. Here is where you can type in notes of how and when you met and what you discussed and what you need to remember to help them with, etc. Enter their wife's name, their kids names. The next time you are in touch with them, you can refer to different family members by name asking how they are doing. They will love you for remembering! Nobody else will see these notes, except you.

Third is the Schedule alert. This is where you can schedule LinkedIn to send you an email to remind you to call the person at a certain day and time.

Fourth is the Tag. When you tag each of your first connections, you can place them into a list of people with similar categories. For example, Calgary Business Women, could be one category. You can set up as many categories as you want. Then you can upload these lists to a CSV file and send mail merge to them inviting them to join your newsletter.

NEVER send a mass message to your tags directly through LinkedIn! If you send mass messages, you will soon have lots of your valued connections leave you!
