Like me, have you ever received email invitations like these?

"> I am using LinkedIn to keep up with my professional contacts and support them with introductions. Because you are one of many people I recommend, I wanted to invite you to get into my system o-n LinkedIn.

I have received above 3-5 invitations such as this, phrased almost precisely the same way. The senders have acted upset and surprised that I did not start to take advantage of this request.

Let's go through the issues in this invitation from a marketing point of view.

Apart from being irritated that they're obviously encouraging visitors to send invitations that make little sense, I've nothing against Linked In. Perhaps it's an useful organization.
