I’m looking for a good introductory message for LinkedIn. I’ve tried a few different openers but still a low success rate.

Do you have any connections in common with the people you are trying to speak to? LinkedIn can be a dead end in a lot of cases.

Most are alumni

I’ve been trying to improve my LinkedIn as well and found this useful: https://blaze.today/blog/linkedin-intro-messages-templates/

Hope this helps you too!

Thank you!
