In this episode of The Find My Catalyst Podcast, Mike is joined by Brynne Tillman who has earned the title of the LinkedIn Whisperer. Brynne shares a lot of great tips in this episode.

Key Takeaways:

  • In order to truly leverage what is available to us today, we need to slow down our outreach to speed up the outcome.
  • Be strategic and look at what matters to those you want to reach out to.
  • We need to small talk with content, but content that matters to our audience.
  • Leverage the information that LinkedIn provides to start authentic conversations.
  • 2 Types of Sales Professionals:
    • Brand new sales professionals that understand technology
    • Seasoned sales professionals that understand relationships.
    • Rarely do you find the ones that have both. Goal is bring the two together.
  • Meaningful conversations from social = value + rapport 
  • Get people engaged in chat 
  • My style (Brynne) is to make it so easy that my audience is confident that they can implement it.
  • Simplify your story.
  • 5 Elements that get people to lean in:
    • Resonate with story
    • Create curiosity
    • Teach your audience something new
    • Get them to think differently about what they are doing
    • Create a compelling moment.
  • We can’t start a conversation with lurkers, we have to convert the lurker into an engager.
  • Create a compelling moment.
  • Ways to increase engagement:
    • Ask a meaningful question
    • Create a poll
    • Do something that gets your audience say, “I want to engage in this.”
  • The more engagement you get in the first hour, the more LinkedIn says this is relevant.
  • Ask for their thought leadership, not their baggage.
  • Ways to get a better understanding of what people value:
    • Social listening - what is your audience engaging on?
    • Polls
    • Research topics being presented at conferences they attend?
    • What podcasts are they listening to?
  • Have a system in place before you reach out to a prospect.
