Did you know that multitasking can decrease your productivity by up to 40%?
Even though LinkedIn is a social network that can be a valuable tool for anyone looking to level up their career and business, it can take you a lot of valuable time if not used properly.
It’s so easy to get pulled in a million different directions on LinkedIn when you’re trying to juggle all the different things that need your attention.
So what are some ways to become more efficient on LinkedIn?
Here are some LinkedIn productivity tips to help you get started on a path toward being more efficient.
Let’s dive into it!
1. Know what to look for
It’s easy to get lost in a sea of data when trying to find useful information on LinkedIn.
Before you start searching through it, it’s important to know what information you’re looking for.
This will help narrow your search and make it much easier for you to quickly and efficiently find what you need.
So, ask yourself: What kind of information do you need?
You should be familiar with the type of available data on LinkedIn and where it’s located.
For example, if you’re looking for other people, you know there are different ways to search for them within the search box.
You can search for specific people within the company’s employees section and groups, using the advanced LinkedIn boolean search option and so on.
On the other side, if you’re looking for information about someone specific, you know that the only place where you can find that is their LinkedIn profile.
And there are different segments within LinkedIn profiles depending on what information you’re looking for.
What’s great is that you don’t need to spend time trying to find information about your connection.
With LeadDelta, you can easily access everything necessary about a specific person.
All you need to do is enter your connections’ profile, and with having LeadDelta activated, the sidebar with the information will pop up.
The LeadDelta sidebar will show you the most important information about your connections which can help you contact them and personalize your communication easily.
2. Organize your network and ideas
Our mind is one of the worst to-do lists or calendars we have.
To take that pressure off, you need to create your to-do list, notes, calendar, and everything you find useful for structuring and noting your thoughts and tasks.
You know the feeling when interacting with someone, and just in the middle of a conversation, you get some brilliant idea, but you leave it for later.
And guess what, you usually forget about it.
Imagine that happening in the middle of a conversation with your potential customer resulting in you missing the chance to get that deal.
Or you forget who you should contact because you had many conversations on LinkedIn during the week.
No problem, you will find them, but it can cause you to lose a lot of time.
Instead, you should let your mind be creative and take on big tasks instead of draining your memory with minimal tasks that a piece of paper or a solid app can handle.
The first thing you should do is organize your network on LinkedIn. This will allow you to easily find people to connect with and keep track of them.
You can also browse through your connections, but I recommend doing this after you’ve organized them into groups so they’re easier to find.
Pro tip: For easier finding and sorting your connections, you can easily set tags and notes using LeadDelta.
After you enter your connection’s profile and the sidebar pops up, you’ll see the tags and notes section in the bottom right corner.
You can note whatever you find relevant, such as their industry or position or your ideas of what you may offer them.
Just click on “Edit tags,” choose the one from your existing ones, or enter the new one you want to create.
After you’re done, hit “Enter” and “Save.”
This way, you don’t need to leave LinkedIn to add notes and tags.
And what’s best is that it’s automatically synced with the LeadDelta so you can access it anytime.
3. Network Research
Not only can you leverage LinkedIn’s search engine to find active users in your industry or niche and connect with them, but you can research all the necessary information about your connections.
Whether you’re looking to find where your connections worked previously or how many followers they have, all the data in the back can be useful for your activities.
Using LeadDelta filters and CRM views makes it much easier to find what you’re looking for in one place.
Just enter the LeadDelta filters by clicking on them, and you’ll be able to find whatever you’re looking for.
Let’s say you want to find all the connections that are in the Retail industry. Just navigate to the industry section and find Retail – it will automatically filter your connections.
The more specific your filtering is, the fewer results you’ll have — which means less time spent sifting through irrelevant results.
Note: Never underestimate the value of research – get to know your audience well to produce more effective content.
4. Organize Your Inbox and communication
Engaging with your LinkedIn connections and other people is a number 1 strategy for your LinkedIn profile growth.
Whether you’re doing that through LinkedIn inbox or a Sales navigator, it’s important to work on it consistently to get the desired results.
One tip that can help you pour a standard LinkedIn inbox and the Sales Navigator inbox into one is using the LeadDelta inbox.
This way, you won’t need to constantly switch between one and another but operate from one place.
5. Personalize your messages as much as possible
You’re probably asking how personalizing messages can increase your LinkedIn productivity when each interaction takes some time.
Well, let me tell you this.
Having generic and non-personalized conversations with your connections can only result in unsuccessful deals and interactions, leading to failure in reaching your monthly quota.
So by personalizing your messages, you will create more meaningful relationships and won’t waste your time and contacts for conversations with no future.
But not only that, it will help you understand your connections so you can convert them easier and save a bunch of time for other activities.
There is another problem – LinkedIn inboxes can be full of chaotic interactions that are hard to sort and find the one you need at the moment.
With LeadDelta, you can easily organize it, and what’s best is that you don’t need to write messages from scratch whenever you’re planning to contact someone.
Instead, you can use personalized templates that LeadDelta offers. Just navigate to a new message or the existing conversation and after you enter it, hit the floppy disc icon, and then “Choose from templates.”
Choose the template that fits you best, and you’re ready to go.
6. Clear up your connections list
One of the most important things in becoming productive is ensuring you aren’t wasting time on LinkedIn.
For this reason, we recommend filtering your connections list so that only the people you want to connect with and stay in communication show up on your feed.
And to prevent distractions from others that you’re not interested in, you can quickly unfollow or remove them in bulk with LeadDelta.
Just select the ones you want to unfollow, for example, within the “Connections” tab, and choose “Unfollow.”
Not only will this help you be connected with relevant people, but it will help you increase your engagement activities with the right ones.
To sum up
To increase your LinkedIn productivity, you need to invest time in organizing your activities and adapting them according to your goals.
