Well now you can!

LinkedIn recently created a “follow company” button that can be embedded in to a company’s Website.

Some of the company’s that have already started using the button include Starbucks, AT&T and American Express.

How to embed the “follow” button 

To get your button, click this link. First, you can chose to show a count of how many people have followed your company or pick a button with no count. Then click, “Get Code.” Copy and paste the code into your website and voila!

Other buttons

LinkedIn also has a handful of other useful buttons that you can install on your company’s page.

The “share” button allows you to share articles with others in your network and the “recommend” button shows others brands that you approve.

And remember, LinkedIn is still growing each day. The site now has 150 million users!
