Why you don't need LinkedIn Premium to message people outside your network
Yup, you can do it for free
Did you ever want to reach out to someone who you are not connected to on LinkedIn, only to learn that you need to upgrade to a Premium account to do it?
You don’t actually need Premium for this.
Do this instead:
1) Scroll down to the bottom of their profile to the "Interests"section. Click 'See all' , then select the 'Groups' tab.
2) Got a group in common, great! Go to Step 3. If not, join one of the groups, and when you get accepted, go to Step 3.
3) You will be able to access a list of all group members. You will notice that every person in the list has a 'Message' button next to their name. (if you just joined the group, it might take a few days for the button to become visible)
4) You will also notice a 'Search members' bar. Simply search for the person you want to get in touch with, and message them from there.
