Sales recruiters should be well-versed in how to construct LinkedIn messages that will appeal to quality sales reps. You should always avoid one-size-fits-all approaches by focusing on the specifics of your company, and including those details within a direct message. You could also add a message that has been personally written by the hiring manager, as candidates have been proven to respond more to listings that include excerpts from the individuals that are in charge of the hiring process.
- Keeping your message short and straight to the point is advised as it allows the sales rep to take less time for a response.
- Include all of the details in your message so that the sales rep can know exactly what you are trying to do.
- Link your website in the message and leave the rep wanting more to improve your chances of continuing the conversation.
“When sales reps are satisfied, they’re much less receptive to overtures from other organizations.”
