We all hate LinkedIn sales pitches. 

"I see we have something in common. Let's connect and do a 30-minute call to see how we can help each other. 

By the way, if you need help generating 20-30 sales calls a week on LinkedIn, I have a secret formula that works like magic. 

If you want to get started, here's a link to sign up." 

Almost every LinkedIn message is a sales pitch these days. 

My LinkedIn insiders tell me they are very concerned about the endless sales pitches. 

It degrades the LinkedIn experience and keeps people from logging into LinkedIn every day. 

So, what is LinkedIn doing to stop the spam? 

They're sending me emails reminding me that someone sent me a message four days ago and I didn't reply. 

"David Jay sent you a message 4 days ago: I hope you're doing great! Just a quick ping because I know you're a business coach (probably the best one I know 😉) and I just added coaching contracts into Agree.com and some coaching features into WarmWelcome.com. Would you be up for giving them a try and sending over ideas or feedback?" 

Stop the madness LinkedIn!! 

One spam message is annoying enough. 

Reminding me that I didn't respond to a spam message is not the answer. 

Luckily, I found a setting so I can turn off these message reminders. 

Go to Settings & Privacy, Communications, Messaging Experience and turn off Message Nudges. 

Have a great week!
