I prefer a LinkedIn approach. I would advise to be direct with me and let me know everything up front so it benefits us both by saving time. I understand it could be in your best interest to get a candidate on the phone ASAP, but know that many developers are introverted and need to be convinced to take a step of a phone interview.

If you are having problems with no replies within a week then chances are the developers are not interested. Don't be afraid of making the initial introduction a copy-and-paste message, as long as I have all the information I need to reach back out to you.
