A change from the normal format this week as I interview the team behind Autopilot for LinkedIn. A system that allows you to view multiple profiles automatically.
On the call are Scott Offord (click on the image to view his profile)
and Philip Cardwell (Click on image to view his profile)
I have been using Autopilot for about 10 weeks now and i have been really impressed with the results.
It is really important to note that using Autopilot is NOT just about getting profile views, this is merely an indication of potential. In order to make your profile views count you need the following;
- A strong profile picture that grabs the viewers eye
- A clear and focused headline - this may change depending on who you are viewing.
- A targeted advanced search of your prospects that has been saved.
- Follow up with prospects who view you back with an introduction, not a sales pitch.
- Connect once contact has been made.
Because Autopilot views more profiles than possible on a free account you will need to upgrade your LinkedIn account to a Business Plus premium account (you may have the option of a free months trial).
Like most systems, Autopilot can be misused but if you focus on the above points I am convinced you will see great results.
Using Autopilot can benefit your business but it is also a very powerful tool for jobseekers, check out this case study that Scott mentions in the interview.
I appreciate that this episode could be be interpreted as an 'advertorial' for Autopilot for LinkedIn but nothing could be further from the truth, I approached Scott and Philip because I wanted you to know more about this. That is why I am posting a general link to Autopilot as well as my affiliate link which will pay me a small commission (at no extra cost to you)
You can take a free 15 day trial of autopilot and then decide if you wish to continue using the product, for me it was a 'no brainer'!
Please let me know if you have any questions about Autopilot for LinkedIn or any other aspect of using LinkedIn.
Thank you so much for listening, I really value your support and interest.
