LinkedIn InMails allow you to get in contact with people you have no direct connection to. If you have a Premium account then you will automatically receive a certain number of InMails depending on what account you have but if you use all of your allotted InMails or you are on the basic free account you can also buy up to 10 InMails at a time.
To buy your Inmails go to LinkedIn and go to the image of you in the top right hand corner, then go down to ‘Privacy and Settings’
On the new page, towards the top right you will see ‘Inmails’ along with a summary of how many you currently have and if you are on a Premium account when your next grant is. To buy inmails simply select ‘Purchase’.
Choose between buying 1, 3, 5 or 10 inmails and the appropriate cost is shown to the right, the final sum including VAT is shown in brackets. If you buy more you do get a slight discount. Then select ‘Continue’
You will then be taken through to the billings page, take note of the summary on the right which includes the expiry date for your Inmails.
When everything is filled in select ‘Review Order’.
Simply confirm everything is correct and you will receive the inmails to your account.
