Where do I get a LinkedIn Profile button from?

I’ve seen buttons that link to people’s LinkIn Profiles on their websites. How can I add one to mine?


Leo, down at WorkConnexions, wanted to know how he can add a LinkedIn button to his website. These buttons are designed to link to your profile on LinkedIn’s website and help you promote yourself and your services.

Adding these buttons isn’t hard, as LinkedIn provide the code for you themselves. You’ll need to navigate to Your Profile on the LinkedIn website and look for the section that says “Promote Your Profile”. Here’s a snippet showing what it looks like:

Click on “Promote your Profile” and you will be presented with a selection of buttons you can use and the associated code. Just copy the code to your website and you’re all set to go. Good luck!
