    We all know how perfectly it makes sense to buy/sell aged FB/Insta accounts.

    But what about LinkedIn accounts?
    After all, that is a similar network, but 'for professionals'.
    Does it make sense for anyone to grow and afterwards sell LI accounts??

    Say I have aged accounts, with good standing profile with 2.500 Connections, and daily just being added by more and more.... WHY would you buy this account?

    And if you do, how much would be a real value for a good-standing profile?

    There are people who will buy good accounts like that for botting, but I'm not sure you'll find them here.

    I'm sure there are people interested in this on here, I might actually be interested in something like if there was a marketplace thread.

    The core concept of LinkedIn is Networking. Let’s say you have 100 direct LinkedIn connections, and each of those people has 100 connections too. That makes your 2nd-degree network 10,000 people. If each of those people has 100 connections too, that makes your 3rd-degree network 1 million people. LinkedIn is a powerful tool with which you are able to raise your business popularity. It connects you to trusted contacts and helps you gain other potential visitors as well. A larger network means more people will be viewing your page and seeing what you post, and you’ll have far more people you can reach out to.

    If I have to sell my account with 2.5k real connections, It would be around $200 - $300 USD (my personal opinion)

    If you can build up the accounts so they look 100% legit then you can make some cash by selling real looking endorsements, recommendations and connections.
    Most SMM panels have rubbish LinkedIN services so if you can offer real looking accounts then people should be interested.
    I am always looking for decent LinkedIN services.

    There is certainly a demand. But, these people are different. You have to entice them in different way. I assume these will be mature people,who will buy such accounts.

    Thank you all for your opinions.
    What I'm wondering, a FB account with 2.5 Friends/Followers is more expensive than LI's?

    Btw, unfortunately atm I'm not in position of spending 100$ to get that Upgrade.
    Any useful info that can be copied/pasted here w/o violating the terms - will be much appreciated!

    I've got a LinkedIn Sales Navigator Account for a year, coz I resigned from my current workplace who just gave us LI SN for a year. NOW, I ain't gonna use it anyways, so willing to sell it to anyone willing to buy and make use of it. I'm sure buying a Premium LI SN makes sense.
