I am searching for my bio dad and through this I came across a person on LinkedIn who has his name, lives in the state and city I was told he is in, and is in the same profession.
Now I am not a member of LinkedIn but I joined just to email him. I question if I will get a response since he left when I was 2 and now I am 37 but thought I would try. Anyhow when I joined it is said you need to upgrade to a premium membership. If I do this how much does it cost and do I need to make a whole work profile cause I am not interested in that. Also does the person you email have to have a premium membership to get the email?
When you message a person are you able to write a somewhat long message?
Thank you

You get an email regardless. Premium membership options are for job seekers, sales and talent professionals, as well as the general professional who wants to get more out of LinkedIn.

Thank you.


I am confused cause when I click on the person's name I wanted to message it says I have to upgrade to a premium account. Is there a way to message with just the basic membership?

yes, you have to connect to that person. When you send out the invitation to connect you insert a message.
