How do I add a contact?
Initiating contact with somebody you do not know requires a certain amount of tact. We recommend you think carefully about precisely who you wish to contact and who you wish to be introduced to. Make sure you personalize all of your contact requests, referring explicitly to the profile of the person in question, e.g. by mentioning information that they have entered under their “Haves” and “Wants”. This makes your serious interest and professionalism clear, and increases the probability that the respective person will confirm you as a contact.
When connecting with new contacts you can also decide which contact details you wish to share with this person. All you have to do is check the boxes next to the respective information (e.g. your birthday, business contact details and private contact details). You can also assign tags to your new contact (e.g. private, client, New York, etc.) to make them easier to find.
You will be notified via email sent to your active notification address once the contact has confirmed your request.
