That's kinda what I have always done (15 years+).As you suspect, that's a bit out of date.
Any advice on how to diversify that?I depends on your social interactions. Do you show people the site, or juts name drop. If you are just getting them to link to homepage, that looks a bit unnatural. I mean, if I'm writing editorial, I link to the page. If I'm referencing the company, or giving a generic "shout-out", I would probably use the homepage- but to truly endorse content, I link to the content.
Should I focus link building to these areasyes, but...
...maybe one target page a month?Definitely no. Nothing looks more unnatural than getting links in a "scheduled" way.
Yes, I have been link building solely home page links.
Should I focus link building to these areas; maybe one target page a month?

would be those that naturally accumulated links over the yearsThat's what I would do, if only because there is proven interest.

I removed my disavow file more than 6 months ago and saw no drop in SERP ranking.
Any idea on an acceptable ratio of Deep Links to Homepage Links?
Those backlinks must be worthless if it makes no difference whether you disavow them or not.@aristotle - The disavow list was a life-saver at the time & put my site back where it was (almost) prior to being hit with that awful update, so I would assume the backlinks I disavowed weren't "worthless." Now the algo has softened on bad backlinks, at least in my case, to a point where removing the disavow list was inconsequential - YMMV.
