  • You have been trying hard to build an audience on Linkedin that you do not own.
  • You cannot transfer your hard-earned Linkedin followers to your best CRM software.
  • Your customer acquisition costs from Linkedin ads are through the roof.

  • Step 1: Open your LinkedIn app on your mobile phone.
  • Step 2: Click on “My network” at the bottom of the page.
  • Step 3: Turn on “Find nearby” button at the top of the page.

Tip: Bluetooth should be on, on your phone and on the people’s phones you want to connect with. 

Note: If it does not work, then Linkedin for whatever reason has decided to turn off this feature. You can ask them to put back in by emailing Ryan Roslansky (Linkedin CEO): 

Copy and paste the below message: 

Hello Ryan,

I hope this message finds you well.

I wanted to inquire about the timeline for re-activating the “Discover members nearby” feature.

This feature has proven particularly valuable in facilitating connections with other LinkedIn users at events, conferences, trade shows, and similar gatherings.

Your insights on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and best regards,

[Your Name]
