You can sell your product by using LinkedIn. As we all, we are aware LinkedIn has more than 630 Million users.
They all are professional people, so you can send them Invitations on LinkedIn with a short message and your product landing page link.
But first, you need to provide some value to your target customer.

Provide free information related to your product, your industry, etc. Talk about the cause of how your product can help them, then silently push your product to your customer.

Search for them on LinkedIn and pitch them by directly sending them a connection request with a 300-character short message.
Send a message on LinkedIn

If you are selling a digital product like any software, theme, plugin, extension, etc. then you also need to follow the same procedure to research your target niche audience Then you have to send them connection requests with a short 300-character message along with the product landing page link.
Talk to your audience daily, and wish them their achievements will help you to achieve your target. Take out time from your busy schedule to wish your LinkedIn connections.
You can directly wish from your LinkedIn notification bell.
Here is the screenshot is given below.
Try to build connections in your industry niche, don’t accept all connection requests blindly.
If you have a company then you must have a Linkedin Company Page.
It’s a free service by LinkedIn where you can list your team members, a career tab, where you can post jobs, and add details about your company, phone number, details, and complete address will always create trust in your audience, increase chances that more people will follow your company page.
A company page creates trust and credibility in your LinkedIn connection and helps people find your business more easily.
Now after making a company page, you have to list your products on your company page and start sharing along with some details of the product.
It will help you to get more target customers and your customers just because the company page will trust you and endorse you for future reference.
Always share full HD images of your product, and don’t make blunders that will not be going to help you.
You can use some Automation Software to make the process simple.
But ultimately the tool will not be going to help you.
You need to put filters wisely to get your target customers.
Don’t send requests to anyone, do your best to do comprehensive research, and then link with other people.
You can build your email list by using your LinkedIn account.
Make a beautiful message and provide some free value to your target audience.
Ask them to fill in their names and email to give them offers.
These types of content will help you to grow your list.
2. By Selling Services:
Yes, another way to make money is by Selling Services.
Just take an example, you have an SEO Agency and you use it to sell SEO packages, then you can pitch on LinkedIn to your target audience by putting some filters over there.
Again follow the same strategy and send the connection request to your target client, again provide some value and ask for their email address and send them emails.

3. By Affiliate Marketing:
Affiliate Marketing is a way to make money online.
Here you will get an affiliate link that you need to promote to your group and if someone buys anything from your affiliate link then you will get either direct or indirect commission.
Almost all companies on the internet that are selling something are using the affiliate program.
You can directly partner with them and start promoting their products to your channels like your website, blog, social network, etc.
So here we will go into a deep discussion about how to promote affiliate products online by using LinkedIn.
You can’t advertise your affiliate link on LinkedIn because of community guidelines but you can do something else to get the commission.
First, make a good LinkedIn page, start listing your affiliate product with cool images, and share your website landing page link.
Remember don’t try to sell directly from the website.
Always list the affiliate product on your website then promote the main product landing page link to LinkedIn.
Now again follow the same procedure as I discussed above to get the target customer audience.
You can write a comprehensive blog about any product, If your blog or article goes viral then you will get the maximum visitors to your website, ultimately helping you to drive more sales and more profit.

Suppose you’re a blogger and looking for more traffic then you must have to use LinkedIn for writing comprehensive articles and sharing your content.
People will love your content if you write a good quality one.
In between the content you can provide the link to your website or blog.
Now come to the connection limit, LinkedIn has a 30k connection limit that you can add to your list.
Later the connect button will convert into follow when someone looking to connect with you.
You can imagine that 30k is a huge number for promoting the stuff.
Rather than Facebook where 5k is the limit.
Like Facebook, you can also connect with the LinkedIn group and you can also share your stuff on LinkedIn groups.

Suppose I don’t have much traffic on my website then how I can build a mailing list?
Here is the solution. You can use LinkedIn to grow your mailing list.
There are certain techniques that you can use.
You can create a LinkedIn group and send a custom template invitation to your connection to add inside the group and later you can invite these people by offering free giveaways, ebooks, small gifts, etc.
You can also offer them the first free service for getting their email.
