Here are the top five ways PR pros, communicators, and marketers can grab audiences’ attention on the professional social network.

1. Ask for recommendations

Don’t be shy. Ask satisfied customers or responsible employees to write a few kind words about your company and/or products. People often read reviews before buying products or learning about a prospective employer, so be willing to ask for feedback.
