LinkedIn has a great feature that allows you to download an Excel file of all your LinkedIn contacts which can be uploaded to most email marketing campaigns. The Excel file includes an email list of all your 1st degree connections. When you connect with someone on your personal LinkedIn profile, they become a 1st degree connection. All of the users they are connected to immediately become your 2nd degree connection. All of the users connected to your 2nd degree connections become your 3rd degree connection. We can help you expand your reach by researching your 2nd and 3rd degree connections that are in your target market, and we help you connect with them.
