Script framework to start a conversation on LinkedIn


How do we start a conversation on LinkedIn?

This normally happens, or it’s meant to happen, once somebody has accepted our connection request, but unfortunately, most people just leave it there and never actually initiate or engage in a conversation.

So, we need a few go-to scripts to kick things off.

What should we say as conversation starters for LinkedIn?

Version 1

Now, one of the frameworks you might like to try is this:

“Hi_____, Thanks for connecting. I see that we have many mutual contacts in Brisbane [or in consulting, or in whichever city or industry you happen to have a lot of mutual contacts].” Then say, “What’s your major focus at the moment?” [Or, “What are you working on at the moment?”] “As for me, I’m working on XYZ. Let’s keep in touch, Adam.”

So that’s version one.

Version two

As a second version, you might say,

“Hi _______. Thanks for connecting. Congrats on what you’re doing at ________” […And then say] “What’s your major focus at the moment?” [or “What are you working on at the moment?] As for me, I’m working on XYZ. Let’s keep in touch. Cheers, Adam.”

Two very simple, reliable conversation starter frameworks that you may like to adapt and use yourself.
