Ever get the following LinkedIn error message when you try to accept an invitation?
This message was sent to an email address that is not associated with your LinkedIn account. You may have another LinkedIn account with this email address.
If you do…here’s help!
What does this mean?
It means you need to add the email to your LinkedIn account and I’ll detail for you below exactly what you can do to easily and quickly resolve the situation.
Why am I receiving this message?
You’re receiving this message because someone wants to connect with you via the email address they have for you … perhaps a previous company, a personal email, etc.
Action: Here’s how to resolve this LinkedIn error message: In LinkedIn, click Settings in the menu under your name and add and confirm your additional email address…this will keep you from receiving this LinkedIn error message going forward.
Information: LinkedIn invitations are email address driven, like on FaceBook, and you can associate all your emails with your one account.
For example, I have my ChristineHueber.com domain, yahoo, hotmail, and gmail email addresses all registered with my LinkedIn account that I opened in 2006 . This makes it easy for anyone I’ve know since 1997 to connect and network with me on LinkedIn, where I’m the LinkedIn #1 All Time Top Female Expert and have a Top 1% Most Viewed LinkedIn Profile.
What If: if you don’t add it, you’ll continue to receive these messages, or could create duplicate accounts since LinkedIn is like FaceBook and email address driven.
Result: You can more easily grow your network and business using LinkedIn, when you add all your emails that any of your contacts might have.
So now I’ve told you what you can do to keep from receiving the above LinkedIn error message when you try to accept an invitation.
