10 LinkedIn Message Templates To Boost Your Sales

The Basic LinkedIn Template

The basic template is perfect if you’re only interested in reaching out and getting the initial introduction in.

Hi [NAME], thanks for connecting!

My team and I have just developed [UNIQUE PRODUCT OR SERVICE]. It can [EXPLAIN UNIQUE SELLING POINT]. Is this something that you’d be interested in?

If you are not the right person to discuss this with, can you point in the direction of your colleague who might be interested?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Thanks, Dan.

The Phone Call Template

Hopping on a phone call with your prospect is the first step to creating a partnership. It gives you the opportunity to share the specifics of your offer in detail and address any question they may have.

Hi [NAME], thanks for connecting!

I’m always looking to meet people in the industry, and I’m glad I came across your profile.

I run (or work for) [COMPANY] and we recently launched our new project, [NAME OF YOUR SERVICE OR PRODUCT]. I’d love to share more details over phone call if you’re interested. 

Are you available for a brief call this week?

Looking forward!

The Meet Up Template

Instead of a phone call or chat, you could also invite your prospect for a quick meet up to present your product or service.

Hi [NAME], thanks for connecting!

I wanted to reach out just to let you know about [NAME OF BUSINESS] and our new project, [PRODUCT OR SERVICE]

If you ever need [BUSINESS OBJECTIVE], please feel free to pop in for a coffee. In case you’re free this week, I’d love to meet up so I could tell you more about it.


The Conversation Template

Building relationships with prospects is always a good idea if you want to  turn them into paying customers and boost your sales.

Hi [NAME], thanks for connecting!

I always try to get to know something about my connections… Are you working on anything exciting right now?


The Funding Template

Funding is crucial for any business that wants to scale and make products available to more people. If you’re looking for more people to have on board, LinkedIn is an excellent platform to explore.

Hi [NAME],

I hope you’re having a good week so far. Our company, [BUSINESS NAME], is looking for investors to embark on our journey. After [RECENT SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS PROJECT], we are now looking to close our first round of  funding.

After looking through LinkedIn, I thought I would message you to understand if this opportunity would be relevant?

Please let me know and we can discuss further if you’d like to be a part of an innovative project in [INDUSTRY].
