Social Media and Inbound Marketing are far more effective techniques for reaching business owners in need, and using social networks to facilitate cold calling is a tragic waste of opportunity.

Mike: Thanks for pointing out how NOT to use LinkedIn? Have you experienced many sleazy salespeople doing cold calling and blasting email messages via LinkedIn?

Too many, which is what inspired the article.

I completely agree with you - if I get a LinkedIn email from any of my connections trying to attract my business or sign up to an event then that puts me off them completely and I ignore. If it is someone who has taken the time to connect with me and develop a business or trust relationship with them I'm more likely to take notice. Thanks for sharing on Bizsugar.com
