I recently had a meeting with a potential client who has since turned into a full-blown follower of TrainStorm Media – Halleluiah!! During the course of that preliminary meeting I stated the importance of asking for and acquiring LinkedIn recommendations. She mentioned that she’d noticed that I had some on my profile (thorough groundwork there!) and asked me if I’d requested them. Slightly shamefacedly I admitted that I hadn’t – I’m a bit too reserved and as a result don’t like to put people on the spot.
As chance would have it, I received a request shortly afterwards from an acquaintance who I was more than happy to recommend. These two incidents prompted me to park my reserve and stride forth into battle. I’ve asked for a dozen or so recommendations now, so watch out future prospectives, there’s nowhere to hide :o)
Have you been recommended?
