How to End a LinkedIn Message

Concluding a LinkedIn message effectively is crucial for leaving a lasting, professional impression. Whether you're reaching out for networking, job opportunities, or professional advice, how you sign off can significantly impact the recipient's perception of you. Here are comprehensive guidelines to ensure your LinkedIn message endings are appropriate, professional, and conducive to building strong professional relationships.

Choosing the Right Sign-off

The sign-off in a LinkedIn message should be tailored to the nature of your relationship with the recipient and the context of your message. For professional interactions, especially with individuals you haven't met personally, it's essential to maintain a formal tone. Common professional sign-offs include "Best regards," "Sincerely," "Thank you," and "Best wishes." For a more personal touch, especially if you've had previous interactions, "Warm regards" or "Kind regards" can convey a friendly yet professional tone. Avoid overly casual or intimate sign-offs like "Cheers" or "XOXO," which may not be appropriate for professional settings.

Including Your Contact Information

After your sign-off, it's a good practice to include your contact information. This can act as a digital business card, making it easy for the recipient to reach out to you through other means if necessary. Your contact information should include your full name, job title, and other relevant details such as your phone number, email address, and LinkedIn profile URL. Remember, the goal is to make it as easy as possible for the recipient to contact you, fostering opportunities for further professional engagement.

Personalization and Gratitude

Personalizing your message's ending by expressing gratitude or looking forward to future interactions can leave a positive impression. Phrases like "Thank you for your time," "Looking forward to your response," or "Appreciate your insights" show respect for the recipient's expertise and time. This not only ends the conversation on a positive note but also opens the door for future communications.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your LinkedIn message endings are professional, courteous, and effective in fostering professional relationships. Remember, the key is to be respectful, concise, and clear in your communication, leaving the recipient with a positive impression of your professional etiquette.
