Helpful LinkedIn Tips to grow your network:
1) Visit your contacts’ connections and look for someone who could be a potential referral partner where you both would benefit from a business relationship.
2) Ask your first connection if they wouldn’t mind you using their name when connecting with that 2nd connection. Something like this is appropriate:
I see you’re connected with FIRST AND LAST NAME. I was going to reach out to him, do you mind if I mention your name?
Thanks, and hope business is going well!
