Understanding How to send a LinkedIn voice message using the LinkedIn Mobile App can open up new ways to connect with prospects. LinkedIn offers an overlooked feature for users who have access to their mobile app.
LinkedIn voice messages provide a new way to make a first impression or follow up with a prospect or recruiting candidate. Instead of another text based message, you can send an audio recording. This is a great way to stand out. Not only can it showcase your personality, but audio is better at conveying tone.
Salespeople and recruiters should use this tool as a way to differentiate themselves from the mass text based LinkedIn messages people receive from LinkedIn automation tools on a daily basis. LinkedIn voice messages can also be used as a quick way to introduce yourself to a new connection. The key with using a voice note on LinkedIn is that you’re doing something that other people will not do. This will make you stand out.
