Just getting started with email and don’t have a list yet?
Here’s a quick way to jumpstart things.
Getting started with email can sometimes be tough, especially when you don’t have any email addresses to send to.
So what do you do? Here’s a great way to start.
Log into your LinkedIn account and download your first connection email addresses.
Here’s the steps to get started:
Open a search window and type in: https://www.linkedin.com/people/export-settings
This will bring you to a LinkedIn page that will allow you to export the people and their email addresses that you have ‘First Connection’ with.
This will then allow you to select a few different formats for the spreadsheet.
It doesn’t matter which file type you select as they will all import into your email marketing tool.
Next once you’ve downloaded the list you are able to review and sort based on which contacts you’d like to import into your email tool.
Okay, so know that you have the list of potential contacts. We’d suggest you create an introduction email to connect with your LinkedIn contacts via email.
Most email service providers will not allow you to import a list from social media, but you do have the opportunity to reach out via email and connect further.
Note: If you haven’t selected an email client yet, take a look around here on Zindo, we’ve reviewed a ton of them so to ensure you select one that will work for you and your team. If you need some further help. Reach out, we’d be happy to talk you through it.
