LinkedIn Uses Email To Thank Early Adopters




Today, I received an e-mail from LinkedIn Co-Founder and Chairman, Reid Hoffman. OK, so I was one of 1 million recipients of the same e-mail but it stuck out as a strong example of using a simple thanks for those who helped get you there. The e-mail went out to the first one million account holders of which I had no idea I was one.

It also served as a great reminder of how I need to get more involved with LinkedIn so the e-mail kind of re-ignited my interest in the site as well. Here it is. Once again simple but effective. Nice touch.

Where does LinkedIn fit in your social networking efforts? Could you use it better? How do you use it currently. Let us know!

    I’ve been on LInkedin for years and i didn’t get an email. I’m crushed. I need chocolate.

    do you believe it? it says I was 15k member. I’m skeptical

    I got the email and thought “ok where’s the prize?” :-) being “early adopter number 215,189″ I figured I should get some sort of special compensation or award – I mean out of a million people, the first 250,000 should be more valued right? :-)

      I got my email – but am I the only person to notice this breaches CAN-SPAM rules?
      no unsubscribe link, no company contact details.
      Plus they missed an opportunity as Alan says – to give us a great prize….I rant further on my blog.
