How do you connect with your contacts?

Linkedin definetely to find the most effective contact or doing the first cold-call, then prepare a short intorudction email, try to involve videos because only text is boring. Then in the next 1-2 days, follow up calls..

I focus on email and calls, with some LinkedIn followups. 
Guys, what do you think about adding LinkedIn to the sequence? 

Some top reps say it should only be used for boosting the prospects' awareness of us and others say LinkedIn has worked well for them to book meetings.

I do it. I think it is a great way to connect! It seems to work.  I suppose it depends on your activity on Linkedin, yet why not add another form of contact to the list? With our prospects being ever so busy, it may catch someone that wouldnt otherwise express interest in you.

I like to use Teams and calls, that way you can put a face with the name and get to know them.

How do you connect with your contacts?

My preferred contact method is usually via text/email because everything is recorded in case something needs to be referenced later. Memories fail more often than servers do. But in a sales context, in person or on the phone is often the best contact method because the voice and nonverbals speak more personally and effectively than text can.

How do you connect with your contacts?

Email and telephone are the main ways to connect with contacts, however, more contacts find it convenient to connect via text and specifically WhatsApp, especially if its for something simple.
