2 years ago, I got destroyed for trying to “network”.

I sent a link to my Youtube channel in a DM to a new connection on Linkedin. My thought was that they would either say thanks or ignore it. Not the case. This person laid into me about how this was the perfect example of why they hated Linkedin. Someone they just met trying to push their agenda. They even went on to say it was why I would never be a leader in the Salesforce community… (yikes 😬)

It made me feel instant regret & embarrassment.

“Never be a leader in the Salesforce community”? I thought about that phrase a lot in the coming weeks as I tried to post and interact with more ppl on the platform. At first, I wanted to think of all the reasons why this person was wrong for what they said - so I did. I convinced myself that it was a one-off situation and kept doing what I was doing. Time went on and I wasn’t making connections with ppl like I thought I would and I started to think that they could’ve been right.

One month later it happened again. Not as harsh but similar feedback and similar results as the first time. I was too pushy and they didn’t like the way I tried to connect with them. I was obviously doing something wrong. I didn’t want to but I shared what happened with a friend. I provided context, sent the exact message to them and explained why I thought it would help me network better with ppl. They were more kind in the way they told me but unfortunately, it was the same feedback.

This was my sign that I needed to change.

I took the feedback, swallowed my pride, and changed my approach. I started creating content that would solve problems for ppl instead. Doing this has allowed me to help hundreds of ppl and create real connections. Those real connections now provide me:

  • 104 job offers a year

  • Consulting gigs @ $105 an hour

  • Fulltime work w/ compensation exceeding 200k+


That’s the definition of effective networking.





So why does this matter to you? It matters because I see ambitious ppl like yourself make this same mistake when they DM me. Their intention is to “network” and grow their salesforce career and although I understand that, most ppl will not. They will see it as selfish. They won’t empathize with you because they don’t know anything about you. They only know you’re in their DMs asking them for a favor. Just like in my story, it’s automatically going to do the opposite – Make ppl not want to help you.

To network effectively you need to give ppl reasons to want to help you. Ask yourself how you can give to others before you ask of others. Do this and I guarantee you will see similar results to what I’ve seen.

That’s all for this week. 1 simple salesforce tip to grow your career.
