We-Connect works perfectly fine with a free LinkedIn account. You can use all features of We-Connect with a free LinkedIn account. However, free LinkedIn accounts have certain usage restrictions like commercial use limit. The commercial use limit restricts the number of profiles someone can search for.
We recommend getting a premium LinkedIn account.
Here are the main benefits:
- Premium search filters: Sales Navigator has about 12 extra search filters. These additional filters help create targeted searches. See this article from Linkedin.
- Fewer Captchas: You are likely to get fewer captchas, thereby reducing we-connect downtime and increasing the number of daily invites and messages sent.
- Create and save more searches per day on We-Connect.
- Ability to save larger lists. With sales navigator you can save a list up to 2500 contacts compared to 1000 contacts with a free LinkedIn account.
