On Linkedin, Firstly you have to make connections. Send requests only to those people who are interested in your content.Make sure one thing while building your connection list is only focus on your target audience because target audience can make a great impact on your business.
If you promote affiliate products or services to your target audience then conversion will always be high. If you promote affiliate products to anyone then your efforts will go in vain because it’s not mandatory that person will like or buy you your affiliate product.
Target audience has a greater importance in any business. Many bloggers, affiliate marketers, etc. are driving traffic to their website through Linkedin. You can use Linkedin to generate your affiliate revenue.

Why do people use Linkedin for affiliate marketing?
Linkedin is the largest professional network all around the world and also a leading platform. More than 740 million people use Linkedin in approximately 200 countries.Linkedin is much bigger in comparison to other social platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Tiktok, etc.

Through the use of Linkedin, you can take your business from lower level to the higher level. Linkedin can also be the best platform for you.
How to build an audience on Linkedin?
There are two ways from which you can build your audience such as company pages or personal pages These two platforms are different.
In simple terms, people prefer to interact with personal profiles in comparison to company pages. If you have more than 10K followers on your company page then still you get only 0.054% engagement.
If we talk about personal pages, you get a decent engagement rate of about 2%. On the personal page, you have more features to use like you can send connection requests to your target audience, you can send messages to your connections, you can do comments, etc. Company pages have fewer features. I am not saying that the company page is not good.
If you want to do affiliate marketing through Linked then do it from your personal profile. Send 10-20 connection requests to your target people and start increasing your personal following.
Polish your posting strategy
Posting is an important aspect for making the engagement on your personal profile. When you send a connection request to someone or anyone then also tell them the reason why they should accept your connection request.
One question is arising in your mind about how you have to post on Linkedin as an affiliate marketer and how many times and when. No issues. I am going to tell you. If you post more than 5 times in a week or one post per day then you will see the big drop in clicks.
If we talk more specifically, a page who has 100 followers can generate only 2 clicks per week on the first two posts.
