Simple to Use / Easy on the Eyes

LincSphere provides you with a full arsenal of networking tools, but does it in a way that is not confusing to learn or overwhelming to use.

Frequently Asked Questions

LincSphere is something truly new under the sun - an app COMPLETELY dedicated to making you a better, smarter, more efficient networker (i.e. relationship-builder). So let's clear up some of the more common questions we get asked.

How does LincSphere compare or compete with LinkedIn?

LinkedIn is a social media platform and primarily functions as a “professional people search”, but with features for group discussions and publishing content. It has little in the way of MAINTAINING relationships or building them. It has features for introductions, but most people find that these attempted intros don’t often work out because of the tendency of users to have a great many “connections” which they don’t really know well in their account – thus making intros harder. And then there is the quantity of spam connection requests you get in your LinkedIn account. The point is, we are not trying to REPLACE LinkedIn and we won't, but there are a lot of needs that aren’t met in the networking world by ONLY using LinkedIn.

Don't you need a large user base before the app is really useful?

Not at all. Easily 95% of the features in the app are fully usable even if you were the only person on the planet with the app. From business card scanning, to storing contact data, creating and using follow-up timers, using the contacts geo-map, sending referrals and making introductions, etc. are all usable without having any other users (for example referrals and introductions are simply sent as emails). There are a few features, however, that are meant for interaction with other LincSphere users, such as our Event Lens feature and other enhancements when you link a contact record to another user's account.

Is LincSphere trying to take the place of my CRM (customer relationship management) system, such as Salesforce?

The answer is NO, we aren’t trying to compete in the the CRM space. If a company needs to manage their CUSTOMERS, by all means use a CRM (in fact, we plan on setting up easy integration between us and popular CRMs eventually). LincSphere is for INDIVIDUAL use. This is because a person’s network is the set of relationships that that person has. Many of the people in a salesperson’s network don’t belong in the company’s CRM. Some of your contacts might not ever become your customers but are still good referral partners, and they send referrals only because they know YOU, not because of any allegiance to the company. The salesperson needs to be able to manage his personal network and he can’t do that in the company database. Plus most CRMs are all SALES focused and don’t get the person focused on just building the relationships by adding value to the lives of their contacts, which is the best way to build trust, etc. The majority of people who network don’t really get the difference in this mindset, which is part of the point of why LincSphere exists.

Will I be able to send bulk or blast email messages to all of my contacts?

Absolutely not. If you are looking to send messages to people who have OPTED-IN to your list, there are services such as Constant Contact or Mailchimp that exist for that. LincSphere does allow you to export CSV files of your contacts, so you can import them into other programs. However, LincSphere itself is for building relationships with your personal network, and that is only done with personal, 1-1 communications and actions. Actually, one of biggest complaints that many networkers have is when people they just met take their business card and add them to their newsletter or "drip-campaign" without actually having gotten permission. That's the way to break down relationships, not build them.
