I'm not a big LinkedIn person, but I know folks who use it generally benefit from the paid features which give you heightened outreach permissions.

Hm, yes maybe you are right. I used it for one month(a trial version) and it got me a bigger profile visit. But is cold messaging people an effective option in your opinion?
