    I can empathise to many points here, I think this brings out some of the improvements that need to be made to how people connect on LinkedIn, as that is where i get most of my spam. perhaps more specifics on what people actually look after as opposed to having broad categories like online media.

    Hi Damien,

    Really great post, I’ve only just found this and it totally makes sense – you mention things I subconsciously have been doing and telling colleagues to do without formally advising this is best practice. Roughly following the process (I think, anyway) is why we get in front of people, and they know a little of who we are before we open our mouthes! Then our job can be to sell, as the awareness and product/ service education has begun already.

    I’m not sure if you come over to NZ much? Your views would be welcomed here for sure – do you present for the NZ marketing assoc at all?
