Don’t send a cold request

One mistake Worship recommends avoiding is “Sending a connection request without any context for why you’re connecting. Include a quick message as to why you’re sending them a request. Maybe you met them at a recent event or you saw them speak on a panel or their background is of interest to you and you’d love to stay connected…Often when people get cold contacts or connection requests, they may ignore them. Or they accept but it doesn’t result in a meaningful connection unless there’s some sort of follow-up.”
