Should You Accept Every Connection Request?
“Should you accept every connection request?”
Short answer: Yes.
Even if they don’t fit your customer persona, when they engage with your content, @LinkedIn will show it to other people in *their* network (your 2nd degree network) – and you might be found by someone who *is* relevant to what you do.
The downside is that your feed will become messy with random low-quality content.
So what I do is I create a lead list on LinkedIn Sales Navigator (LinkedIn Premium tier, $80 p/m) with all the people I want to engage with - current clients, leads, prospects, other thought leaders, close friends, etc.
It allows me to create a separate, curated feed based on my interests.
I know opinions and philosophies differ on whether you should accept all connection requests, leave your 2 cents down below!
