In Affinity, not only do we show you the connections that your network has to individuals and companies, but we also show you their respective relationship strengths so that you can easily determine who to best ask for a warm introduction.
Expanding your network with Affinity Alliances
With Affinity Alliances, you can discover new introduction paths to individuals at companies you previously had no access to (see Getting started with Affinity Alliances).
In this example below, you have two introduction paths to get a warm introduction to James McGillicuddy. You can directly ask Tim to introduce you to James (a weak connection). Or, you can ask Tim to introduce you to Josh, who can then introduce you to James (a strong connection).
What are Relationship Strengths in Affinity?
A relationship strength is a numerical score given to your connections that ranges from 10 (weak) - 100 (strong). Relationship strengths are calculated based on the recency and frequency of interactions between two individuals. The scores are also ranked by different colored bars.
- Gray bars represent weak connections
- Orange bars represent average connections
- Green bars represent strong connections
