    Hi Everyone,

    I was just curious to see if anyone else would be interested in this. Im debating on making a guide for the BHW community.

    Let me know in the comments as this would take a while. I can leak small details while Im working on it.

    In the process I found out a lot about Linkedin's platform; some weaknesses that need to be addressed. Other than that, I can tell you I received a boat load of emails in the process.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the comment Skyrocket but I didnt buy any list from Fiverr. FYI, most of those lists are outdated and there is not a chance in h*ll that you will come close to that number they claim let alone in a week. Cheers

    That gig is mine, people that want to connect on LinkedIN are called LIONS (LinkedIN open Networkrers), and they accept invitation from anyone, cause they want to have as much connection as possible. These are real people of course. We scrapped around 15K LION profiles and that's it. It's science

    Apologize, didnt know it was your gig. If you scraped it then its going to be 100% better than most lists. You do have to keep in mind that if the list is from late last year many may not accept your invitation and you run the risk of getting too many IDK's

    Yes, I understand that IDKs are not good. But all people on my list are LIONs so I guess they won;t go with IDK.

    Actually I made that list for one of our projects and later decided to place the list on Fiverr, better $5 then nothing. I would hate spending my money on Fiverr gigs (I mostly buy logos) so i have my profile there where I sell some random services that take a minute to deliver and later buy gigs with this money. It feels like getting free stuff:)

    P.S. Did your method include inviting LIONS?:)

    Yes, a big percentage of it. I dont think its possible without including the LION pack

    This is interesting. For my business, I am acquiring the best leads thru LinkedIn.

    Can you elaborate a bit on the demographics of your connections? Is it random or are their common themes among them?

    I would be interested in a way of rapidly acquiring connections that are related to specific job functions and/or industries.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    I am also looking for a large 2014 linkedin list and very interested in the lions lists even if they are 2013 is ok. Linkedin users rarely change their profiles.
