As you may have heard, Inmails are messages that can be delivered to people regardless of connection. This means that you can send a message to a 3rd level connection without waiting for him/her to connect. Basic account users can send up to 10 Inmails and Premium account members can buy up to 10 more.

The best part of an Inmail is that a credit is refunded if it does not reach its destination. The downside is that the messages have an expiry date so you need to use them promptly.

Open Messages are free Inmails sent from anyone to a premium connection who consents to Open Messages.


Tough Talk:


Take advantage of this golden opportunity to target people you would really like to speak to regardless of their connection level. Act quickly before the expiry date.


Top LinkedIn Tip:


Use Inmails to increase your connections by sending them to people you have difficulty contacting. Inmails have a greater chance of being noticed and you get a refund if the message cannot be sent.
