How to Wish a “Branded Happy Birthday” on LinkedIn

For any upcoming birthdays,  you can send a  “Branded Happy Birthday” message to your connections. 

Listing your birthday on LinkedIn is optional, but if you do list it, it’s a chance for a human to human touch point as some people will remember you! When you get to as many connections as I have, then sometimes it’s just not possible to do, as there are only so many hours in the day. Apologies to those in my network who I have recently forgotten.

So what do I mean about “Branded”? Below is the verbiage that I copy and paste from my notes app on my iPhone when I get a notification from LinkedIn that it’s someone’s birthday. 

All I have to do is to type their name to customize, but the rest is pre-typed and pre-formatted. This technique makes it special, as it’s individualized and my signature and links at the bottom are a form of subtle advertising so I stay top of mind in case we have not touched base since we connected or met. Gotta love those emojis!
