1. FIND CONTACTSUse LinkedIn search to find your existing business contacts and connect with them. Though it seems time consuming at the startup but this effort has worth that you feel with time therefore start sending connection requests one-by-one.
TIP: Don't send connection invitations via email. Always search contacts through LinkedIn website and send connection requests through the site instead of importing your email contacts to send invitations because most of the contacts in your email list don't have worth for your business and if your do so then you will waste your limited amount of LinkedIn invitations (3,000 total), so avoid this practice.
