You want to connect with people who belong to your niche, people with whom you may want a future partnership, and people who have content related to you and who can help you develop your career or business. A good move on your part would be, after sending a request for connection, to send a personal message in which you will mention why you are seeking the connection with that particular person. That way, it won’t be considered a “random” request. And of course when you get a respectable number of connections, you have to interact with them in ways like a comment, a like or even a share.
