Good morning, PR pros:

Whether you’re a consultant, agency pro or in-house communicator making a side hustle, LinkedIn made it easier to attract clients through the platform.

The feature, called “Open for Business,” is available to any LinkedIn member with a Premium Business subscription. Click “Add Services” on your profile, then add a list of the expertise you provide. (This might also help others understand better what you do, PR pros.)

Your profile will also show up in search results when other LinkedIn members search for services you provide.
