Is a LinkedIn Premium account for you?

LinkedIn offers a variety of premium account levels targeted to business users, recruiters, job seekers, and sales professionals. Financial advisors considering upgrading to a Premium account should take a look at the Premium Business options. Click on the image below to learn more about LinkedIn Premium.


A LinkedIn Premium Business account offers several useful features not available in the free Basic account level, including:

  • Advanced search filters, allowing you to search your network by seniority, company size, interests, and Fortune 1000 ranking
  • Up to 300 profiles per search
  • Up to 5 weekly Saved Search Alerts, notifying you when new network connections match your search criteria

Pricing varies depending on which Premium account level you choose.

Our take:

We suggest advisors try the Premium Business account, which typically costs $19.95 per month if billed annually. We particularly like the ability to use advanced search filters and to get more results in searches.

  1. Greg Lowe says:

    One of the best new features that LinkedIn provides as a Premium member is the ability to put notes on a contact. This allows you to keep track of important information such as “how you met”, and notes that may be relevant for future interactions. It also has the ability to add alerts (although still a little limited) to remind you for example to follow-up with a prospect next week. While not as complete as a full blown CRM solution, having the information available on LinkedIn does provide value.
