Just sent a LinkedIn connection invite to someone you shouldn’t have?
Have you ever had that moment that just after you hit ‘connect’ you realise you shouldn’t, it was the wrong person or perhaps that you forgot to personalise it?
People often send me a connection request AND an email apologising for the lack of personalisation on their invite after coming on one of our courses. But they need not do so as LinkedIn lets you pull back invites that have been sent in error and it is a really simple process.
- Get on a desktop or laptop as the functions only exist there.
- Select my network from the top menu (looks like a couple of heads and torsos)
- Select ‘Manage all’ on the top right-hand side of your invites
- Select ‘Sent’
- Select the one you want to pull back and then hit ‘Withdraw’ on the top right.
- Hey presto! Done.
You can then either move on or resend one with a more personalised note as you see fit.
We’ve written quite a lot on our blogs about the importance of connections and whether more is better which you might want to check out, but if you’d like to chat about making LinkedIn work for you just get in touch.
If you don’t personalise your invites you might want to watch a clip here.
