How to make LinkedIn really, really suck

how to ruin linkedin

I got an email this morning from someone who wants to be my “LinkedIn Account Manager” who will give me a free week trial. That includes sending out 500 connection requests and building a three message sequences to those new connections.

The point: generating new business.

Look, LinkedIn is about connection and making business happen. But automating it, and building “message sequences” are why I have almost 100 unread LinkedIn messages. This is not the way to go about building strong, meaningful, mutually beneficial relationships.

Here’s the full email:
