Advanced tips for improving talents'/candidates' response rate:
- Please simply say “hi” or “hey” to the person you want to connect and briefly introduce yourself or your company.
- Get to “Why You’re Writing”—and Fast. This is the most crucial part of your writing.
- If you want a more customized message, you can simply give approval to or show interest in the person’s public information. Another thing you can do is to mention the person’s company name or past experience to show that you actually looked into the person’s profile, making the message even more personal.
- In the end, remember to give the person a reason to respond to your message. You can take the initiative to let the person know what your calendar looks like or ask what opportunities he/she is currently looking for. Try to make the conversation active and developmental.
