Email that Builds Your Professional Network

Ever emailing with an important business contact that you want to build your connection with? Maybe you have a contact that you’d like to consult with on a professional level. Perhaps you are recruiting a new team member for your business. You get an email from an interested job applicant who you’d like to connect with and learn from on a professional basis. From a professional and business development stand point, email is the primary basis for how we communicate with clients, users, and potential business partners. The first contact you have with someone is likely via email.

When you email with someone who is a professional contact, your first contact with them is typically an email consisting of an introduction and a briefing. That then leads to a next step whether that is closing a business deal, acquiring a new customer or adding a valuable role to your team. So what is the next thing you do after you begin correspondence via email? Naturally, a lot of us annoyingly have to navigate away from our inbox, open up a web browser, search for the Linkedin website, visit the LinkedIn website and we then have to manually search for the name of your new professional contact.

Social networks are now such a big part of building valuable business contacts and growing your professional network, so you can also grow your business. The coolest new feature is now live in Mailbird, it’s the LinkedIn look up. You can now right click on any email contact in Mailbird and select “Look up on LinkedIn” to automatically search for that person on LinkedIn. You can now easily bring your relationship with professional contacts to the next level right from Mailbird. How awesome is that? If you haven’t tried it yet, remember to update Mailbird to the latest version, and give the LinkedIn Lookup feature a try today.

    just wow.. who the seriously fuck gives a shit about linkedin integration??
    could we finally have a backup system, offline folder support (not synced with cloud), real google contacts (and calendar) integration and IMPORTANT stuff like that? thanks.

    • For me, and I’m sure I’m not the only one, better LinkedIn integration is much more important than anything you’ve listed.

    Hi Lars not to worry, we are working on those things you’ve mentioned 🙂 Just more fun to tell people about the small unique features we are including along the way to all the other big stuff.

    On a side note: http://www.morningnewsusa.com/linkedin-ends-intro-email-app-on-march-7-238066.html

    So better LinkedIn integration with email is definitely in order and will work very will with our updated contacts management app.

  • The Outlook mail import feature is critical before I can switch over and complete backup option would be nice too.
