    Yeah some clients come from LinkedIn but its too small. Thats not may work if you wanna to get more traffic use social media as Facebook, Twitter. It will give you a large number.

    I've tried LinkedIn, couldn't get my head around it. I found their UI to be far too fussy for what I wanted and the site is just plain ugly to look at. The amount of email updates you get from it if you join a couple of groups too is utterly ridiculous!

    I think the way LinkedIn is set up is purposefully designed to prevent people JUST looking for potential clients. It is obviously mostly for networking
    and sharing ideas/info, but it can work if you do it carefully, target the right groups, etc. Start by answering a few posts and then posting your own questions, not diving
    straight in with "this is me, you can hire me".

    Does it mention LinkedIn on there anywhere, or is just a plug for your blog?

    I trialled out Linked In's Advertising for a short period but wasn't impressed. It's basically a pay per click service but I was tempted by the fact you could target where you ads are displayed by sector, persons job titles etc. In theory this would be great, in practice its very expensive.
    You have to set your CPC at a min of £8 a day with an average click cost of around £1.60. It seemed every time I set the campaign off it would reach the daily limit in about an hour and looking at my google analytics either no clicks, or a lot fewer were registered. I put in a query to their support and just got palmed off claiming the issue must be with google analytics or all the users must have cookies disabled. Whilst I think it's unlikely that Linked In would be running a blatant scam, as they can offer no proof that these expensive clicks happened I've knocked it on the head.

    From my experience, it looks like LinkedIn is great in providing job opportunities, if you are looking for an in-house position. I have never had the feeling of a platform thought for pushing freelance work.

    yes i also agree that LinkedIn is a site that is mostly used for networking. if you want to attract customers, then Facebook and Twitter are the best.

    If you want to get more clients from LinkedIn then you can use the following tips:
    1. Create a complete and a strong profile then ask colleagues for recommendations. These recommendations are a form of social proof that provide your potential new clients the feedback and actions of others to determine if they want to work with you.
    2. Publish contents to gain visibility in-front of the audience
    3. Join LinkedIn groups
    4. Use LinkedIn advanced search to search queries for people or jobs related to your search terms.

    I tried to get clients from LinkedIn, but was proved to be a failed attempt. Either the prospective client will not reply or they accept work in very small amount.

    Through linkedin you can send a email for particular person but you need to upgrade for sending emails.
