Also this online video on how to best use the premium account, seems to be helpful. Again, i appreciate all of your experience and commentary with linkedin premium

My colleagues use it religiously. They use it by adding new contacts otherwise they seem to have missed.

1) with the white pages app, you can find people nearby (great if farming a neighborhood) i already use this and love it. You can add these people "nearby" to your contact list and have LinkedIn communicate with your contacts automatically offering to connect with them next time you login to LinkedIn
This is completely free on the basic service

2) the reason im debating on investing in the premium (240/ year) is it makes your profile more visibly accesible for searches, higher SEO keyword search friendly and similar to trulia and zillow and the like can ask your online linkedin connections to write a recommendation/ endorsement on your behalf (again you can do this with the basic account but the premium makes this process extremely simple). It seems to be the only non real estate specific "professional" social networking tool that allows you to search for more people

Alas, my dilemma in investing in this tool. Certainly less expensive than increasing visibility with some other online advertising mediums .

Thanks for all of your input!

Thanks Yanoska for sharing your thoughts - it seems to be the one response that has some merit. I had been thinking about upgrading and so was sincerely interested in hearing what others had to say.

Nothing really exciting derives from LinkedIn, unless you'd like to add more spam to the fabulous number we Realtors get a daily dose of.

I do not use it, and now I am writing words to hit the minimum characters needed.
