LinkedIn's New Recommend Button

By: Viveka Thursday December 2, 2010 comments Tags: LinkedIn Tips



LinkedIn has a new "recommend" button for your product or service. You can use this code to pop the recommend botton into any media that supports HTML :) Or even use the link in an email.

I'm sick as a dog, so am not going to do a video on this today, but I will share - from the horse's mouth - what LinkedIn just emailed me a few seconds ago.

Obviously you will want to use your own product, not mine :)

You should be able to get these links and code from your company page on LinkedIn!

From LinkedIn:

Embed this "recommend" button on your website so your customers can recommend your products or services with just the click of a mouse.

Here's the code snippet you'll need to embed the button for each of your services (or products).







Product or service name: Extreme Makeover: LinkedIn Edition

Code snippet for LinkedIn 'recommend' button:
<script type="text/javascript" src="/http://platform.linkedin.com/in.js"></script><script type="in/recommendproduct" data-company="661863" data-product="10972"data-counter="right"></script>

Product or service name: LinkedIn in 15 Minutes a Day

Code snippet for LinkedIn 'recommend' button:
<script type="text/javascript" src="/http://platform.linkedin.com/in.js"></script><script type="in/recommendproduct" data-company="661863" data-product="10977"data-counter="right"></script>

To get code snippets for additional services (or products), just replace the Product ID # (data-product=) in the code snippet above. You can find the Product ID # for any of your products from the URL of the respective product pages - it's the number that follows "prdid=" in the URL.

OK - I know this isn't a simple cut and paste - but how cool is it that people can recommend your product living on LinkedIn from anywhere????
