LinkedIn Tip of the Week: How to personalise connection requests on mobile


The latest LinkedIn mobile apps for iOS and Android allow you to personlise your connection requests.

Personalised connection requests are a great networking tool but until recently, this feature was not available in LinkedIn's smartphone apps. This has been remedied now - here's how to do it:

  • Make sure have downloaded the latest version of the LinkedIn app
  • Go to the profile you want to connect with
  • Tap the three horizontal dots in the top right corner of the profile
  • Select "Personalise Invitation," and then write your personalised message

Bear in mind that you cannot include email adresses and URLs in your personalised message - and there's a limit on the number of allowed characters. So keep the message short and to the point; simply tell the recipient who you are and why you should be connected.

Happy networking!
