LinkedIN's New InMail Policy!

Just thought you all might want to know about the new LinkedIn Policy.

What it comes down to is that starting in January, when you send out an InMail, if it gets responded to, you will get it back.  It used to be that when you send an InMail out and it DIDN'T get responded to you would get it back.  This should cut down on spam - but also means InMail will be more expensive if you suck at getting responses.

  • InMail credits returned for every response, rather than no response: InMail messages that get any response (Reply or Not Interested) from a recipient within 90 days will be credited back to you. If you don’t get a response within 90 days, however, the InMail credit will not be replaced.
  • More monthly InMail credits: You’ll get 15 InMail credits every month (versus 10 before) so you can reach more contacts.
  • InMail accrual: Unused InMail credits will continue to accrue for 90 days so you can choose the right time to reach out

Here's the letter they sent out in case it landed in your Spam filter!
