How To Get A Linkedin Testimonial

Does this sound familiar? You'd love some testimonials for your Linkedin profile but feel it's pathetic to ask for one. A solution I use, is to go to people's profile whose recommendation you'd like and leave them a testimonial unsolicited. Most times they will reciprocate with a testimonial to you.

And how about when you are on the receiving end of this type of unsolicited testimonial - but you do not want to return the favor because you'd rather not appear to endorse their particular business practices? This has happened to me twice in as many weeks.

Then of course you wouldn't return the gesture. If you didn't really want their testimonial, I would suggest you remove it. Myself, I've only ever got kind words when i volunteer a testimonial.

I have always gotten one in return. Of course I'm choosing very carefully those whom I recommend.

I'm curious Marquita, do you find Linkedin helpful in doing business?
