Hi Ray, this is a powerful way to build your connections. Just a question, what is IDK?

That is such a great question.  When I first joined open networking groups I saw all these posts that said, “I will never IDK you”.  I put in a couple posts that said, “I can’t IDK you I don’t even have a clue what it is.”  I realized later that IDK is short for “I don’t know.”  You might know that if you invite people and they don’t want to accept the invite LI makes it a little too easy to push this “I don’t know” button.  Get too many people doing that and it means you get put on restriction.  That means you can’t send an invite without an email address.  Usually you can get that restriction lifted but it is a pain.

Your question points out something I can’t understand, LI has a zillion cool things you can do with it but using it is for some reason a deep dark secret.  If you are interested you will find some other helpful information for using LI on my blog: www.LinkUpWithRay.wordpress.com.  You can also access the blog from my LI profile.

If you believe this tip or any tips in this blog will contribute to the success of your LinkedIn experience, I hope you will give me just a few minutes of your time to help with my success and share my LinkedIn profile with some of your connections.  Please read the “If My Tips Help You, Please Help Me” section of the blog to find out how to help me.  You will find this section next to where it says home at the bottom of the picture on this page.   By following this suggestion it will help you with your network too.

Basically I am just a tax nerd, have been all my life. However I have found the more open you are to opportunities the better off you will be in this world. That makes my what is know as an open networker on Linkedin, I will connect with anyone. I am not an expert on Linkedin by any means but one day when I was asking someone to connect I mentioned that I had just been refilled on invites. My new connect asked how I did that. I used that same line for the next month and got asked the same question four times. I started thinking there was a lot of little things it took my sometime to learn. Through this blog I plan to share some of those "Linked Secrets"
