You are in the right place.

That being said, there are still some techniques you can use to identify premium LinkedIn accounts among your LinkedIn Sales Navigator search results.

Let’s see how you can find these leads on LinkedIn.

How To Tell if Someone Has LinkedIn Premium?

To identify if someone has LinkedIn Premium, look for a distinctive gold LinkedIn Premium badge on their profile. It is located below the profile banner on the right.

This badge also appears next to the name in LinkedIn search results.

This technique has a drawback though as it is possible for LinkedIn Premium members to hide their badge from their profile.

A few percentages of LinkedIn premium users are aware of this option.

Even fewer choose to hide the badge on their profiles.

Nonetheless, you should be aware that you might miss some Premium profiles if you use this technique.


Browsing profiles manually is an efficient method if you are looking for a low number of profiles.

But if you want to do it at scale that will take a lot of time.

No worries.

Here is the solution to find LinkedIn premium members at scale using LinkedIn Sales Navigator and Evaboot.

How To Find LinkedIn Premium Account Holders?

3 steps to find Premium profiles on LinkedIn:

  1. Make a search on LinkedIn Sales Navigator
  2. Export your search into CSV with Evaboot
  3. Look into the column “Prospect is Premium”

1. Make a search on LinkedIn Sales Navigator

This technique won’t allow filtering Premium Profiles on your search but will help you detect if there are Premium Profiles among your search results.

The first step is to search on Sales Navigator as usual using filters like current job title, company, years of experience, etc…

2. Export your search into CSV with Evaboot

The badge is not the only way to detect if someone is a LinkedIn premium subscriber. That information is also hidden on the LinkedIn profile code.

It’s possible to extract it from the page.

Not every LinkedIn scraper gets this information, but Evaboot does.

Once the extraction of the leads is finished, you can click on the download icon to get the CSV file.
