The Problem with LinkedIn InMails – They Often Don’t Work


“Linkedin InMails come back undelivered WAY too often” says the marketing expert Jeff Ogden of Find New Customers, who’s won the SLMA award three years in a row, and is about to get a prestigious award later this month.

Head in Sand
Ignoring good marketing advice is like sticking your head in the sand

I help people all the time – all day and all night  on LinkedIn, Twitter, you name it, I help you. And people connect to me all the time on LinkedIn and Twitter,  I now have thousands of connections, 2,467 LinkedIn connections.

Why don’t you connect to me too?

An InMail credit has been returned to your account

Hi Jeff,

Despite the promise to deliver in seven days, it is clear that there are many men and women out there who do not listen to fresh ideas on marketing from someone like Jeff Ogden of Find New Customers, who has won many marketing awards.

After all, if I can help a company in Russia with marketing (He signed up for a free 12 minute call), I bet I can help your company too, since I’m one of the top marketing experts in the USA today.

I think this is a really bad idea – to stick your head in the sand and to ignore sage advice, but not everyone is willing to cooperate.   That is an unfortunate statement of like that all sales and marketing leaders must adapt too.  You cannot sell everyone.

What do you think? We love comments and those who help us create an inferno on social media. After all, my good friend Jay Baer said “Content is fire. Social Media is gasoline.” Amen, Jay!
