    Default LinkedIn Premium

    Anyone pay for this?

    Took the free month offer a couple of weeks ago and have since had 3 new contacts one of which has resulted in some local work.

    Considering stumping up for the premium service long term if this keeps up.

    I took the free trial when I was last on the bench, no idea if it got me the gig or if I would have gotten it anyway but when I am next on the bench I will use it, not sure it has value (to me) when in a contract.

    That was my thinking to be honest but I'm thinking about a change of approach in finding work given whats coming on the IR35 front.

    Got some time off scheduled from the end of this month and part of that is going to be spent building contacts and looking for more smaller pieces of work as proper consultancy rather than the usual single client full time contract stuff.

    Have a couple if things lined up now already so will see how it goes.

    Client I am working with is big on Digital Marketplace Bids, trying to learn as much as I can from them to see if I can move from one man band to delivering distinct packages of work but it's a jungle out there!

    I have LI premium. There's some interesting stats you get about who looks at your profile and how you stack up against other job applicants (which is not a great feature as it's mainly permie roles). Not sure if it's worth £19.99 a month tbh

    I used the free upgrade for the full month and didn't notice any benefit. I suppose I log into my LinkedIn account frequently enough to see who has been viewing my profile and premium membership screens out the anonymous ones (who are sometimes recruiters) so their statistics can be misleading.

    I don't think I'm likely to upgrade.

    I used it at £10pm for a while then dropped it when I got a contract. When I looked again they wanted £30, so as I wasn’t a recruiter/marketer I didn’t bother.

    For £20pm I might have tried a 2 month analysis for ROI had I been in that position.

    It used to be decent when they offered it for £88 + VAT for one year, but they binned this off many a year ago.

    I paid roughly the same amount to a guy who shows you how to get the best out of it without going premium.

    Not just the sneaky stuff LI don't tell you about but how to present your profile and generate leads.

    DM me if you want his name.

    Still going with the free version. Premium version too expensive for me...
