Sometimes you have to pay to play. While LinkedIn is free to use in its basic form and the basic service is enough for most
users, there are some advanced features that can only be unlocked by paying up. These advanced features are of most use to people who use LinkedIn a lot professionally, for networking.

Welcome back to the getting connected with Linkedln Series. Linkedln is free to use with limited features. And for a lot of people, that works out just fine, but there is some things you can do with an upgraded account that you may not know about. You can compare the different features of free versus a business or business plus account by going to your account settings and then compare accounts.
The features that you need if you are just getting started are probably plentiful with the free account, but if you are using Linkedln or a lot of networking for clients and employees or employers, you may want to read through them to see if you are getting everything you need. If you decide you want to upgrade then just click on the upgrade button, select the plan you want and then enter in your billing information. They do have price rates for pre-payment so make sure you check that out as well.
Remember, there are 10 episodes in this series, so don’t forget to check out the other episodes in the getting connected with Linkedln series.
