Dux-Soup April Quacks

April Quacks

Dux-Soup News

Another month in lockdown around the globe, we hope you are all staying safe and well.

You might have already seen that LinkedIn is reporting a 55% increase in user engagement with the platform over the last few weeks. That does kind of make sense if you think of all those people now WFH (working from home) who would usually be out and about.

More eyes on screens means that our users have been seeing great results from LinkedIn outreach. 

Here’s a good example!

'Since the country shut down, I've used Dus-Soup to book 17 meetings, mostly with new relationships. I simply sent a message to my first connections in my city wishing them well and offering to network via a "virtual coffee" and make connections for them if they'd been displaced or felt their job was in jeopardy, especially since there were no networking events to attend.

CISOs, Chief Digital Officers, VPs, etc.’


We also published a blog last week with some ideas about what you could be doing in this time of Covid-19 - read it here for ideas and useful links.

Keep on reading to learn more about what Dux-Soup's been up to this month.
