As part of the benefits of being a LinkedIn premium member, you get access to in-mails – these allow you to email potential clients or contacts directly, even if you’re not connected with them.
However I’ve heard a few frustrations with in-mails – namely that people who use them don’t tend to get many replies, which of course, can be annoying as you only get a certain number of in-mails per month.
But I discovered something recently that may explain this. I logged into my LinkedIn account and it flashed up that I’d got some in-mails. Unlike a normal message however, LinkedIn hadn’t emailed this in-mail to me.
I checked back and sure enough, I had a number of in-mails that I didn’t even realise had been sent, purely because LinkedIn hadn’t emailed them to me.
I suspect this is the reason that not many people are replying to your in-mails. So should you not bother with a premium account?
You should because searches are extremely limited if you don’t. However we have another way that we use LinkedIn that doesn’t use in-mails and works very successfully to get our clients three to six qualified meetings every single month.
