InsideView helps you expand your referral network significantly and get warm introductions to your prospects by providing a single platform for you to leverage all your existing social and professional contacts. Connections is the feature that will enable you to accomplish all of this and more.
Why You Need Connections
Once you add your contacts to InsideView, you can use your Connections to find something in your respective backgrounds that you have in common with your contact, such as having worked at the same company or attended the same school. There are many ways to leverage InsideView Connections including:
Find decision-makers: Use connection filters to identify people you connect to in your target company. This increases the probability of engagement and creates potential opportunities.
Ask for referrals: Once you identify a prospect, ask your connections for a referral. This will increase the chances of a faster response.
Start conversations: Use the information provided by InsideView to identify important conversation starters and gain familiarity with the prospect.
How Connections Work
When you import your LinkedIn, Gmail and Outlook contacts, InsideView will match them against the executives in our database. A perfect match signifies a relationship to that person directly or through the company he or she works for. Within seconds, your Connections network is created, updated and refined, opening the door for more referrals and warm introductions.
