    Hello.

    I have a strong LinkedIn profile with over 21,000 direct connections/followers, 13,000 of which are in the automotive industry, many are general managers/owners of dealerships. Is there a market in which I can sell my Linkedin profile, or my connections list?

    Is this your main profile or what?

    Although there is a guy on this forum who sells Linkedin accounts with connections...there are chances it might sell. But, this is your first post after 2 years man...were you adding connections all those 2 years?

    I am sure there is.

    Now if you post something how much interaction do you get. That's the key. You could have a million direct connects. But if you post something and no one responds, repost, comments or anything like that then really the account is worth nothing.

    Now if you post something and you have a good amount of people that like your post, re share it and so on. Those are the type of accounts that people are looking to buy

    Hello.

    Yes I joined this forum, but never used it, and someone told me this was the right place to direct my question. I have not been growing my Linkedin profile for that purpose, but thought I would see if people are buying LinkedIn profiles out there somewhere. Yes this is my main profile.

    Why would you wanna sell your main profile?

    I am just curious as to how much one would offer for it. If the number was high enough, I would consider selling, otherwise I would not.

    That is a tough question, I got a ton of eye balls on all my posts, and some of my published articles have received good comments and likes, but I do not post that much content right now.

    Its worth what someone is willing to pay for it ...you just have to find the right party for it ...needle in a haystack kinda thing. Why not try to monetize it and keep your name you only get one name when your born!

    You could continue building that profile in the Auto Dealer niche, then you can export your connections contact info and Mass Mail it via SMS and Email. That is one way I monetize Link other than groups.
