How to invite a group of your LinkedIn Connections to a region specific event and be able to easily follow up using tags.

(Login to LinkedIn)

1) Select Contacts -> Connections

2) Click on Locations (Bottom Left)


3) Select Location and check off who you want to invite:
(Optional, you can filter further by typing in company name in Filter Connections Search)

***(Optional – but well worth the effort)  Click on Edit Tag (just below Send Message) in order to tag all the people you selected and create a new tag … for example “Toronto-CMO-Jan2012″(local-event-tag) (so that you know who you invited and use this tag in the future by clicking on the tag to follow up after the event with an e-mail that might contain a thank you or further documents).

4) Click on Send message
**** Make sure that “Allow recipients to see each other’s names and email addresses” is NOT checked off
**** if you want a copy, check off the send me a copy

Finally when ready … Click on Send message below your note


5) Finished 🙂

6) After the event, you can go to Contacts -> Connections -> Tags -> Click on “local-event-tag” and send a group mail to all invitees as follow up thank you.
