Out of an audience of 100 people, seeking advice on how to get started with a project, when the speaker – who has extensive experience with that project – invites the audience to connect, this will happen.
90 people will do nothing.
7 people will send an invitation to connect.
2 people will send an invitation to connect and a personal message.
1 person will send an invitation to connect, a personal message, and ask a question that will help them get started with the project.
The points being:
- If you are one of the 90, remember that time is an extremely valuable asset, and your time in particular.
- Getting an edge on the other 99 is so easy.
