When 1, 2 3 connection likes and comments on your post you have a choice to make on whether you connect or message them or not. I only reach out to people who fit my ideal client profile.
If a 2nd or 3rd connection, then send a connection request saying:
Hi first name – Thank you for liking/commenting on my post [insert topic]. Would you be open to connecting? Cheers..Paul
If they accept, then send:
First name – Thanks for connecting. I look forward to following your content. What is your key focus at the moment?
Once they reply, I use a couple of technics
I have VAs who track messages in LI and put leads into Copper my Sales CRM
I find LI a pain to track messages and sales fall through the cracks
If someone has opened my email (shown in copper) and not replied I will send them a video of something they can get value from relating to LinkedIn. Personalise to them. Much better than saying I am following up. People can join the dots.
I use Dubb for this and record on my iPhone showing their screen and me talking them through it. I can track on Dubb views as well.
If I am getting no love I will send them this script:
I am guessing you are very busy and time is critical, so please reply with a 1,2 or 3:
