Get Customers to Recommend Your Products and Services

After you publish your product or service, other LinkedIn members can recommend it by clicking the associated Recommend link on the Products & Services tab or by clicking the Recommend button on the product or service page itself.

You can also request customer recommendations by clicking the Request Recommendations button on the product page associated with that product. The Request Recommendations dialog box opens, where you can send requests to your LinkedIn connections (see Figure 7).

Figure 7 Ask your LinkedIn connections to recommend your company's products and services.

Another option is to embed a product or service recommendation button on your website to generate more feedback. To do so, embed this code on the web page mentioning the product or service you want customers to recommend:

<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://platform.linkedin.com/in.js"></script><script
type="in/recommendproduct" data-company="CompanyID" data-
product="ProductID″ data-counter="right"></script>

To find your company ID, search for your company by name on LinkedIn and locate your company ID in the URL that displays at the top of the screen.

To find your product ID, go to that product's detail page within your Company Page and locate your company ID in the URL that displays at the top of the screen.

For example, if your company ID is 312694 and your product ID is 198436, you would embed the following code:

<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://platform.linkedin.com/in.js"></script><script
type="in/recommendproduct" data-company="312694" data-
product="198436″ data-counter="right"></script>
