Someone posted “What are you most looking for from vendors that pitch you?” Also, someone posted “If a vendor sends you an Inmail through LinkedIn how do you react to it?” At GPI most peers would answer the former question with something related to pitching them how their product/service would fit in their company. And the latter question GPI peers said they would ignore 99.99% of the Inmails. So, my question would be what does the vendor have to say in the first Inmail so you don't ignore and reply?

If it can be copy/pasted it gets ignored. 

If it is personalized (reflecting 30s of research) it gets read.

Introduce yourself and what products you may have that may apply to my industry and a very short why.  If I need a solution, I will review my emails and InMails for possible matches. Please do not assume I have the budget, time, and focus to look at your solutions now.  I should not have to scroll down a page.
