I have said for a while that active participation on LinkedIn is the best way to say, ‘Look at me!’ without saying, ‘Look at me!’
That said, when I see or recognize someone in the LinkedIn Groups I frequent I am amazed at the number of people, especially those in sales or business development, who make it quite difficult for people to contact them.
- Vice President’s of Sales and Marketing
- Regional Directors of Sales
- Sales Managers
- Account Executives
These positions/people are all over the place on LinkedIn and yet, so many offer no direct way to contact them.
As a joke, I like to say that my goal in sales is to build a client base to the point where I have an unlisted number. Since I am not there yet, if you look on my LinkedIn profile under contact information you will be able to reach me.
